For a niche piece of software like this advertising on other workshop items is acceptable. After all, here we all are.

As for Xepheon. I read it bro. I read it twice. No joke.

The comments only allow 1,000 letters so I had to stretch this into several comments, I apologize :(
I will try and keep them in order. I probably spent too much time on these comments, but this simulation is based off a really interesting system. If you love cool space stuff, you gotta check this out. Plz read:::

I agree with the other person...stop advertising this on other peoples posts and simulations. Its obnoxious.... Why are you doing that anyway? Youre acting like you get paid for the amount of views you get or something...

Anyway, you put a lot of research into this, good job man. The only thing is your stars surface temp is way lower than it should be.

This is my favorite system personally.... Its made up of an o type star and a black hole..... O type stars are among the rarest and most luminous stars, this star is 400,000 times brighter than the sun, good luck wrapping your head around that; Without these stars, life wouldnt exist.

When O type stars supernova they release temps and pressure that are so staggeringly high, they fuse and create rare, heavy elements that are required for life. These elements ONLY come from the deaths of these rare O type stars. The calcium in your bones, the magnesium in your muscles, the iron in your blood and the phosphorus that makes up your DNA literally comes from the supernova of a rare O type star like this one!! We are made up of star dust, that is no joke or exageration...it is very true.

The black hole orbitting the star is even more interesting, it contains the mass of 16 of our suns.. using its unbelievable gravity its pulling the outer layers of this giant star into its event horizon like string cheese. The black hole has an accretion disk around it made up of the star itself... The material in the accretion disk orbits ever closer to the event horizon where it finally gets consumed by the black hole, as the black hole feeds it burps lethal jets of super charged particles travelling at 25% the speed of light.
One of the jets being shot off from this black hole is giving off 1,000 times the energy of our sun every.single.second. Unreal.

As it travels into the abyss its colliding with dust and trace amount of gas and is helping create a nebula.

The interesting stuff just doesnt end, there is more but nobody is gonna read this and Im probably just wasting my effing time.

I disagree with you advertising on other workshop items,
but beside that, this is awesome.
