Give galaxy M87 its famous jet?

So, I've been looking around in SpaceEngine again, and I noticed the galaxy M87 doesn't have the jet of matter it is famous for!
Is it possible to add it?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the jet is visible with the naked eye in the first place. I don't really think it's possible to add it, or at least I don't see how.




I will be inactive on this forum for the time being. Might come back eventually

The jet emission is strongest in radio, but spans from radio to X-ray.

I'm not really sure how it could be added with the present state of Space Engine. However, jets are remarkably common astrophysical structures. We find them not just with M87, but active galaxies in general, black holes, and newly-forming stars -- basically anywhere there is a powerful accretion disk. With the goal of the project being to simulate as much astronomical phenomena as possible, I'm sure they will be added eventually. smile

If I'm not mistaken, they're relatively high on the to-do list, aren't they?

Not sure what the priority is, but yes, they are listed.
