Default multiple ring/sphereworlds in 1 system

I'm currently playing a game against TDM races with the FQM installed.
In my home system i have 3 stars. I already built a ringworld around 1 star. Is it possible to build a ringworld or sphereworld around those other stars?
Also, can the enemy still use a sun destroyer on one of the other 2 stars?
I searched the faq for this but it didn't find it. Of course it could be me overlooking it

One stupid thing in SEIV: i saved the queue of a previous ringworld and so i loaded it into this new ringworld. However, there was 1 facility short (the other ringworld had already built 1 facility) and i added it and wanted to save it. I pushed the wrong button and i had the "nice" experience of seeing and needing to click the "there cannot be anymore facilities on this planet" message 119 times. 1 message would have been enough. If this would have happened in a sphere world, ouch!

Yes, and yes.

Just get more plating and more cables, and you'll be all set to form a Triple Molly

Grrrr. I had a feeling i would have to construct 2 more ringworlds. Well, i could build a system shield facility to stop it but i'll do both: build a shield and construct the 2 ringworlds:-)

Thanks for the answer

(Edit: dumb typo)

you'll have to scrap the shield before triggering the ringworld..otherwise the final step will fail.

This is incorrect.
System Shield will prevent warp closing/opening and every form of star destruction. However the construction of ring-/shereworlds is not impeded.

interesting concept:

ringworld construction as a weapon:
So your enemy has this trinary system full of solar collection array (or whatever those resource thingies are) planets, and has a system grav shield. To take the whole thing out of commission, all you have to do is make his three stars into ringworlds!

hehe, "all you have to do . . . "

Now a Triple Molly would really be something. But I'm not sure if that title is still valid. Is she still a 'star'?

(EDIT: Note to self, run spellcheck when posting)
