|Summary:||This add-on adds a whopping 500,000 stars to the Small Magellanic Cloud (SMC.)|
|Description:||The Small Magellanic Cloud (or the SMC) is a dwarf galaxy. It has a diameter of about 7,000 light-years and contains several hundred million stars.|
Some speculate that the SMC was once a barred spiral galaxy that was disrupted by the Milky Way to become somewhat irregular. It still contains a central bar structure.

Great work, that is almost all the stars in the SMC irregular galaxy.
these addons are made using Rassilion's globular cluster generator.....if anyone knows of other star cluster generators, please provide a link to them! :)
There are some strong artifacts (linear gaps) in the distribution of stars from this addons (and all the others too). The star generator used for this addon has some problems.
I got a whopping 5 galaxies with stars!:Milky way, Sculptor dSph, Ursaminor dwarf, Sextans A, and now, the SMC! Excellent. Also, I want someone to make Andromeda with stars. That would be a challenge, but it would be EXCELLENT! Great work though.
