Changed it a bit. I need help with the orbit and Rotation/Axis. I'm not that good at that.

Looks pretty nice. Wish I could offer some help with the orbit and rotation but I haven't messed with those pieces of SE yet.

I don't know if you can , but with a little help , it's will be cool to make the whole halo universe (not with the halo and other home made planet )

and maybe at some time from now , we will be able to create procedural terrain on home made object .

a lot of it would be guessing, Reach is the only planet with enough detail to make it without a lot of guessing.

That's not true, there are several other worlds with known parameters (I made the system that Installation 04 was in for Celestia, a.k.a. "Soell system").

Check here for one reference, it has data on known worlds associated with Alpha Halo, Delta Halo (i.e. Installations 04 and 05), as well as the planets Arcadia and Harvest, in addition to Reach.

You can also probably check out the Halo wiki for information on more worlds, in addition to direct references from the books (if you have them).

Yeah silly me, I was just thinking of Human controlled worlds, and some how I forgot about Arcadia and Reach. I was getting my info for Reach from the Halopedian site.

Hmm there is no Canon star for Soell, though there was speculation that it might be Iota Horologii, but that star doesn't appear to be the SpaceEngine Catalog.

Hmm, it seems you're right. This is odd since that star is in the Hipparcos catalog...

It's probably safe to assume that it's a G-type star, maybe a G IV or III considering how far out in the system's planetary order Theshold is... When I made it for Celestia I just created a custom star.

Quickly made Arcadia as well. Looks nicer then Harvest. Harvest needs more green.

Iota Horologii is a HR 810, it have a confirmed exoplanet HR 810 b - a gas giant in star's goldilocks zone.

Oh wow, that is perfect, The confirmed planet is even almost exactly the same size as 'Threshold', the Gas giant I needed to make.They must have used it as reference. Heh, the universe has done my job for me. Still need to make it's moon though.

Well, that planet was discovered in 1999 - before the Halo smile Maybe they use that discovery in their story smile

I'm pretty sure that there was no connection between the two... aside from Epsilon Eridani (and Sol of course) all real-world locations were added/retconned in years later. Originally it was strongly implied (if my memory serves) that Harvest was a distant colony world, which is at odds with its later identification as belonging to Epsilon Indi. In any case, the Halo planetary system's final configuration was established before the announcement of HR 810 b (it appeared thusly at the Mac World unveiling on 21 July 1999; HR 810 b was announced 29 July 1999).
