The structure of an irregular galaxy is very simple. Galaxy Nebula objects in the galaxy are given randomly oriented, circular orbits around the central black hole, and the size of the orbits is constrained by the galaxy's radius.

There is minimal simulated evolution of the Galaxy Nebula objects in an irregular galaxy. The Average Star Temperature of the nebulae in an irregular galaxy is randomly chosen, and the Dust Fraction for all nebula is set to 0%.
