    I think you might like this little tinkering:
    Now to do this right you will need to use a graphics editor; I used IrfanView which is free.

    In the ssystem.ini add three tabs (hit enter three times) from Titan's entry and then put in this:

    [rhea]
    name = Rhea
    parent = Saturn
    radius = 764.
    halo = true
    color = 1.,1.,1.
    tex_map = rhea
    tex_halo = star16x16
    lightning = true
    albedo = 0.79
    rot_rotation_offset = 318.9
    rot_obliquity = 0.6

    rot_equator_ascending_node = 186.6

    coord_func = ell_orbit
    orbit_Epoch = 2451545.0
    orbit_Period = 4.517503
    orbit_SemiMajorAxis = 527367
    orbit_Eccentricity = 0.0010
    orbit_Inclination = 0.35
    orbit_AscendingNode = 0
    orbit_LongOfPericenter = 0
    orbit_MeanLongitude = 120

    Now keep three tabs (hit enter three times) apart from the next entry which should be Uranus;

    Use the Titan.png by copying it and changing the title to rhea.png and if you have a graphics editor like IrfanView, change it to blue or gray, you will have a suitable texture;

    • Hi!

      If you send me your picture, I will add it to the package for the next release.
