    you can technically do celestial bodies under 2km diameter, just needs a bit of XML'ing, though beware of course since it might be buggy

    @Wenhop if your asking me to recreate Didymos and Dimorphos then I literally can’t, you can’t make planets smaller than two kilometres.

    Yeah, and conducted tests to not only see if it can change the orbit of an asteroid, but it also conducted the first impactor tests on a boulder too.
