Modified version of FSX original stars.dat file with 44 constellations instead of the two original ones. Fly by night in north or south hemispheres and take the time to discover and learn the main and most beautiful 44 constellations during your night flights. By Jean-Marc Thiebaud.
The "stars.dat" file that you can find in original FSX folder is the place where all stars that you can see in FSX sky when flying by night are saved.
You can also initially display 2 constellations, Big Dipper and Orion's Belt, whose stars are linked with each others by a thin green line.
I modified this "stars.dat" FSX file in a way that you can now see the most representative 44 constellations (out of the 88 official existing ones) from the northern and southern hemispheres.
The constellations choice has been arbitrary made, in the goal to create a balanced sky, without including all of them (only half) and then creating a too "crowdy" sky. I also chose the most graphically "identifiable" ones, as you can perceive and recognize them in the "real" sky. Moreover and as FSX is a game, some of them have been slightly modified in a way to make them even more recognizable compared to their original shape. All constellations shapes are taken out from existing books or Internet graphics anyway.
