This is a planetarium effect package for MikuMikuDance + MikuMikuEffect based on real life star catalogues. It generates high quality starry sky, and it has a wide range of customizability.

MikuMikuDance (MMD) is a free 3DCG software and MikuMikuEffect (MME) is an add-on for MMD that allows you to use wide range of effects powered by HLSL.

For English infomation about those softwares, you might want to check:


  • Approx 0.3 million stars with using catalogues from the Hipparcos mission.
  • You may customize apparance of stars by changeng parameters and/or textures.
  • Stars can twinkle beautifully and naturally.
  • Realistic Milky Way texture. Thank you very much for ESO for allowing me to use it.
  • Atmospheric extinction is implemented. Stars above horizon are dimmer and reddish. This feature can be turned off.
  • Visible magnitude changes smoothly as you zoom your camera.
