> Hello there everyone, I would like some help incorporating a heating module or control set into the create_planet test file. I would like for the model to allow me to heat certain atmospheric layers of a planet, and also to add outside heat sources (Such as a star which the planet closely orbits). I am wondering what command would allow me to do these things, or if there is a pre-built module for this, thanks for any help you can give.

Have you tried the irradiated_planet test case?    If not, you should start there.   Then if you still need to do something else, send another email and let us know.
