Nomad Wormhole Sun?

Is there any way i could use the Nomadwormhole Sun as a Sun? I've managed to place it in THN but so far I've been unsuccesful getting it to appear ingame.
Any suggestions?

that is an effect and no real object

even if you would "mount" this effect to some kind of buoy to make it look like a sun you will run into 3 problems...
1. the effect might run only once and stop working then
2. you will have to very close to that "sun" to target it
3. the sun wont be visible over long distances (if you didnt change the visibility range of effects)

I read THN in your sentence. Do you want to get it in a THN sequence on directly in the game? Because if so, it's possible. I've already done it. The effect loops fine and I bet that with the new EXE hacks Dev found, it'd be possible to overcome the "activation" issue (You'd have to get very close from the sun to start the effect, then you could go away and it'd still be there).

EDIT: Re-reading, I think it's in a system, eh? It's pretty easy to put it in. You just have to insert this into select_equip.ini

{AttachedFX} <--- Change these brackets
nickname = gf_nomadwormhole
particles = gf_nomadwormhole

And then add this new Equipment into a loadout, with a Hardpoint correctly set up (Make a new invisible model or whatever). From there, getting it inside a system should be easy!

Oh and, you'll need to make some hacks to get it to show up correctly. You should head onto Dev's Tutorial to see about that.

I Know it doesn't stop like that, as I've used it in THN. I was thinking about using it as a special Wormhole effect or somthing...
Now how would I go about mounting it on a buoy?
Or Even a jump hole?

I'd suggest trying something even more hilarious
such as mounting it on a ship so, it looks you are flying a star

You'd have to get the Camera about 11k Out, cause thats when you can actually see it without having a glowy thing of death in your face...
I Managed to mount it on a Buoy, but now I'm having troubles getting the LOD ranges. How would i go about changeing them?

you can mount it almost everywhere
but u should be aware that often such big effects create massive lag
