           Summary: [Request feature ] User defined  Body parameters (e.g.
                    Saturn's Moon)
           Product: marble
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Mac OS X Disk Images
        OS/Version: OS X
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: crash
          Priority: NOR
         Component: data
        AssignedTo: marble-bugs at kde.org

DGML file for Titan. 

Version:           unspecified (using Devel) 
OS:                OS X

I tried to use Marble with some of my research data on Titan. Unfortunatly,
Titan is not known by Marble data base (see planet.cpp source code). I thus
make my own dgml file using <target>Titan</target> keywords.

Under OS X Marble crashed. On Fedora 13, marble is able to display my stuffs
only if I use titan instead of Titan in the dgml keywords. Unfortunately, this
is useless because scaling does not work. (of course, Marble does not know the
size of Titan). I see two solutions:

(1) Allowing the user to inter a new target body parameters (that could be
really great because just for the Earth, scientists use several geoid,
ellipsoids and so on. So let think about that.

(2) more simple but less user-friendly. Define in planet.cpp all the Solar
Systems body on which we do have data. Trust me this is huge!

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
just by trying what I describe previously. 

Actual Results:  
it crash under QT version (e.g. OS X). And pretty weird behavior under Kde
version (GNU/Linux).

Expected Results:  
I expected that it could be taken into account in the next version of Marble.
