2 things that should be generated for other stars

I got SpaceEngine recently, and got the hang of using it really quickly.
It's really awesome, but it's missing something with the other stars.

I noticed one thing about the procedurally generated/cataloged stars, and that is, they don't generate comets and dwarf planets. The only star that has these in-game is our sun.

I don't expect to see this in the near future, but I think it'd be a good idea to add dwarf planet objects (Some like kuiper belt/scattered disk objects but stuff that deviates from these would be cool!), as well as comets.

In advance, I look forward to any and all replies. smile

Both already exist for other stars.

Yes they do. To find dwarf planets and comets open the Universe map (on the left) while in a planetary system and you will see a schematic view of the planet system. The blue dots you see are comets and asteroids and the objects with dark green orbits are dwarf planets.

Oh, thanks so much. I had no clue!
Although I don't get why the orbits aren't shown outside of the map when I have the game set to display orbits of dwarf planets & comets.

They work for me

Are you sure you're actually looking at stars that have comets and/or dwarf planets? Because not all do.

Hmph, guess I was looking at some without dwarf planets / comets.
Surprised some don't have these tiny objects, since they're extremely abundant at some stars.
