I remember seeing something about this and, as I recall, it was judged
not possible.

I played around with the concept several times when producing a Star
Trek map for a customer. The Vulcan system has worlds orbiting a common
centre of gravity and things at Trojan points. I failed in my attempts
and ended up with two worlds in the same orbit around the parent star.
Unfortunately, this only showed up in the stats and not in any pictorial
reference.

Cheers,

Mike

Hi guys, new to all this so forgive if I go over something already dealt
with before.

If I wanted to create two objects orbiting a common center of gravity
how would I go about it, plus how does one place objects in a trojan
orbit?
