Re: Recovering lost stargen seeds?

IF you didn't alter the .ssc, it's possible that you could have the info in the first few lines...I haven't used the original StarGen for some time, so I can't remember how it displays info for its .ssc's. A bit of a long shot, but maybe??? -M- PS..OK, I just took a peek at it...the prognosis is not...

Re: Recovering lost stargen seeds?

...And I've just stupidly realized that what one system a seed generates in StarGen, the same seed makes a completely different one in any other version... :oops:

Maybe I should wait for the coffee to kick in before trying to think...

Re: Recovering lost stargen seeds?

You could try this...if you still have the .html of your system, if you right-click and hit "Open With" and select WordPad, it will open up the guts of the machine, so to speak. Buried within the top few lines, you should find the seed. Example: (this is from one I've been chipping at) <!D...

Re: I'm Back! Well, sort of....

I've dabbled a little on an addon for XI Scorpii...(aka Headacheland,) 12 Ophiuchi, and Gliese 511.1. (Rather random collection.) Part of the inspiration came from the OLD ArcBuilder site, which had a bunch of cool LunarCell pics. I assumed this was you... http://solar-flux.forumandco.com/t746-glies...

Re: I'm Back! Well, sort of....

HOOOORAYY!!!! Welcome back, Bienvenue and Namaste!!!! I wondered where you had gone. (The last thing I remember reading from you is over at Extrasolar Visions II.) I've been trying to make my own ArcBuilders addons, without much success, though. So it is good to have you back.

Re: Ordyss (HIP 56948) system

Very nice! I understand about being a slow worker...I've been working on my PSI Capricorni system for years...quite literally. (Maybe some century I'll release it.) Look forward to seeing the rest of the planets and moons of this system. -M- PS- the gas giant is a knockout! What methods do you use?

Re: Custom Science-Fiction Pictures from Celestia

You forget tidal heating...and besides, this IS fiction. I rather liked it.

P.E....your work has DEFINATELY come a long way! I deleted a lot of my old textures...I couldn't stand the sight of them. Very nicely done!


Ignore the trolls.

Nice shots, especially the second, even if it isn't from Celestia.

Re: Custom Science-Fiction Pictures from Celestia

It's been a while since I've posted anything, but I wanted to share this. The cold, outpost world orbiting Psi Capricorni...(courtesy of GIMP and Wilbur...)

Maybe someday I'll release it...maybe.

Re: GIMP Question

What I meant is this...taking a spec map and rendering it into a planet texture. There's actually a tutorial on how to do that. But what you have mentioned seems to be a good thing to look out for. I suppose I can try that approach.

GIMP Question

I'm sure if this is in the wrong place, the moderators, in their wisdom, shall move it... I use Wilbur ALOT for my textures. One of its most outstanding features is the ability to make textures from black and white images. What I've been doing is making such textures and then transfering to Wilbur. ...

Re: Non-ML hosting of multiple large addons?

That would seem fair to me. There was much that had been done in my first add-on in ignorance. While it got justifiably panned, I still didn't know how to do some of the things that were supposed to be corrected...a problem I've since rectified. However, I'm reluctant to release anything for fear of...
