Re: Creating a 3D Mars Model from USGS ISIS3 Data

Hi Cartrite.
If I don't mistake that should be your wonderful Vallis Marineris model, that I should have somewhere in my Celestia backups, is it that one? :think:
Bye

Re: Which are the most underdeveloped parts of Celestia?

Hi.
One, present from Celestia beginning, it the very poor rendering of far stars.
None of the three options gives a realistic appearance of them. :sad:

Re: Unsatisfied with the appearance of gstars in Celestia (1.6.2.2 and earlier)

Thanks you both, I had some doubt about atmospheric glow, but the scaled disks information solved the problem perfectly, as you can see in the following image: My-gstar-scaled-disks.jpg This means that easily and quikly I can change Sun image appearance just inserting in script the starstyle setting...

Re: Unsatisfied with the appearance of gstars in Celestia (1.6.2.2 and earlier)

Thank you for the astronomy lesson, Eric, but it's useless, given I'm a teacher. :wink:
But my question remains the same and, alas, unreplied and so unresolved.
I repeast it, just to be clear (I hope):
why the texture in my first post shows so differently in Celestia? :insane:
Bye.

Re: Unsatisfied with the appearance of gstars in Celestia (1.6.2.2 and earlier)

Thank you, but you misundertstood my question, surely my fault due to my poor English. I'm not searching for other gstar textures (better or worst), and I'm not worrying of pole pinch (I know how to remove it, and I'll do,later on), I'm pretty satisfied with my image (it's a matter of taste, you kno...

Unsatisfied with the appearance of gstars in Celestia (1.6.2.2 and earlier)

Hi. I never liked how gstars were shown in Celestia, so I tried to make a new texture,using real Sun images and Pshop filter gallery, in the search of a way to show granulation and spots. This is the 2k result, reduced to 1k to show it here, and I was satisfied of it. I suggest you to open the image...

So, all these useless chatters because no one simply replied to push on "here" as I have done?!?

Re: any colored textures for mars' moons

Hi.
There are a lot of color images of Mars moons, in color, Phobos in a light magenta-pink color, and Deimos a bit yellowish.
I think you should modify your texture color from grey to something close to the real ones.

Re: Star cluster

Hi Dalibor. I really love your work, these globulars are the best I have ever seen in Celestia. Just a little doubt: in my opinion, the first two images are too much round shaped, I mean the external distribution in not decreasing in the right way, so these clusters are too much like a "ball fi...

Re: Help

Hi Pluto.
I have it and the docs about its use, that I zipped in a 35 MB .rar file.
Can I upload it here?
Otherwise I have to try a different way.

Re: Celestia 1.6.2 is out

Hi. First of all many thanks to onetwothree and all the people who spent their free time to produce this new release. I checked it and found it very nice, but I have one doubt, two problems and one request. :help: 1- the doubt: this version is 64 or 32k? I downloaded the x86-x64 version (36MB) but I...

Re: Pictures from Celestia

Hi john71.
The 128k Mars images are astounding, but I see (shadows and colors) that the last two are from another textures set.
Or are official images from orbit? :think:
Just curious.
