Default Is It a Moon or a Space Station?

With the release "Rogue One", I've been thinking about the original Death Star.

But I haven't been able to find a very good add-on for Orbiter.

So my question is, at 120 km in diameter, should the Death Star be treated as a moon and not a Space Station?

Also, does anyone know where I can find the SDK files for Orbiter 2016?

Thanks in advance,

-T

Deathstar(with lights and hangar-bay)


I don't know if it works in Orbiter 2016 or not.

Well It should as it it is sc3. But there seems to be missing a mesh or 2.
Code:
============================ ERROR: ===========================

[MeshManager::LoadMesh | .\Mesh.cpp | 1238]
===============================================================
============================ ERROR: ===========================

And to the sdk files. They are in the 2016 download.
in the Orbitersdk folder

Thanks for the replies!

1. I've seen that Death Star add-on. But it looks like it doesn't work with Orbiter 2016, and it also looks buggy. I'd like to the Death Star without having to install half a dozen additional add-ons.

2. I managed to get my hands textures developed by ILM for the surface of the Death Star 1 (Off of a video of a talk that John Knoll gave).

3. I installed Orbiter 2016 using the MSI installer. Unlike Orbiter 2010, the OrbiterSDK "did not" install. So I'm wondering how to get ahold of it. Has anyone had the same experience?

It is a obsolete addon and has bugs, you need to rename the file in DSHANGAR.msh ----> HANGAR.msh, rename the file D_STAR.msh -----> TIEF.msh, install spacecraft 3 or later of Vinka ,It should work.

Well, we'll just ask Obi-Wan for the canon explanation:

"That's no moon. It's a space station."

I would think you could make a Ummu as Empire Soldier.
