i like it, but is there no way for you to make them orbit? talk with the developer from mealstrom, i think he knows how to do it.

Yeah it's possible, just don't know how :) I've some models from another mod that orbit but the orbit is a bit to short so it's in the gravity well, meaning ships can fly through the moons, which is a deal breaker

You do it as a particle effect. All you would need to do is increase the radius and make the effect part of the planet bonus.

for the bonus what about certain moons are habitable which increase planet pop and some are mineral rich increase resource income and maybe others are tactical moons increasing amount of defenses around the gravity well?

Yeah was thinking that too for the planet population but there's no way in selecting the moon or creating planet elevators on them (the space cars)

No need for planet elevators or selecting the moons, just add the bonuses when there's a moon around the planet, and add 8-12 more tactical slots, since they can use the moon as a control centre which allows for more tactical slots.

That's no moon!
Oh wait, yes it is..

Currently I'm working on moons for planets: they are just eye candy and sadly don't orbit the planet.
However, I'm planning to attach special planet bonuses for planets with moons, but I don't know what. Any feedback would be nice!

Regarding last week's media update: I think I'm going to make several textures (mostly desert/ice) for pirate planets (normal/dwarf) and give them a negative planet bonus "Corruption" downgrading several stats of the planet.
