Is is possible to use a particular space model in a mission script? Say with a sun dead center of a large map? (Hint: see avatar)

you mean using a space backdrop as the ring and then have a sun in the middle?  if so then no, as the backdropss are completely random, unless you replace them all w/ the same one.

Ah, good thought, for what I'm thinking of that might just work fine.

Suggestion:

If you're replacing all your backgrounds with the ring, I'd also look at replacing your sun mesh with a sun mesh that has your shadow panels attached to it.  So the mesh will "create" light and dark areas on the Ringworld..

Just a thought..

Excellent suggestion, that would work nicely. This is quite a ways off, but I'm stewing it over in me head in the background, I think a Niven's Ringworld themed server could be a fun diversion.
