Re: Space Art

Really nice work Reiko :) Seeing that in Celestia would be awesome!

Re: Celestia Add-On Builder

I study C++ in college, but still it is not enough my knowledge for creation of such program. I have to you some questions: 1. When you plan to finish development of the program? Whenever I get the time really. Next week is my last full chance before I start college again, but I still have a lot on...

Then we can translate it into Russian.

Unfortunately, I don't know C++

Re: Celestia Add-On Builder

hey sorry guys, I haven't been able to work on it recent at all since I've been so busy. Anyway, I hadn't even thought about the update element until now o.O My original idea was that you'd just replace the original .exe file but I will have to think about it. In 9 days I am going camping for a week...

Re: Celestia Add-On Builder

Will the star builder have a feature to calculate decimal degrees or will it still be up to the creator to supply that info? Do you mean like this: http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm228/Drydareelin/th_StcScreen_ss.png You can see the RA and the DEC are in decimals, if that is actually what you m...

Re: Celestia Add-On Builder

Wow that's a lot of suggestions o.O One issue I don't think I stated previously -> I am not a very skilled programmer. I am using VB.Net because I feel comfortable using it :) I will take all you said in though and see what I can do with it. I haven't been able to do much work on it these last 2 wee...

Re: Celestia Add-On Builder

I like it! :D
I might play around with the design, maybe a combo of them both :)

Re: Celestia Add-On Builder

Ah I get what you mean. Okay what I will probably do is include a small label in-between the textbox and the '?' showing the units. So for Right Ascension and Declination it would be the Degrees sign (°) Distance it would say 'Ly' Radius 'Km' etc... If that's what you mean :) If you can think of a b...

Re: Celestia Add-On Builder

It looks like a good start! A suggestion: It'd be nice if the word "Degrees" were shown next to the Right Ascension field for STC entries and "Hours" next to the Right Ascension field for DSC entries. That might help avoid the fairly common accidental use of the wrong units in t...

30/06/2012 Edit -Thanks to Selden's comment, there's now the degrees symbol (°) after the Right Ascension and the Declination sections. -You no longer have to put in quotes..for anything. The Program does all the hard work for you (you lazy bunch!) -I am currently in the process of finishing the .S...

Re: Celestia Star Builder

cool idea :D 1° You can add the units for information. You can add two optionnal parameters : 2° texture of the star ex. : Texture "gstar.jpg" 3° let's choice between absolute ou apparent magnitude. What I am thinking of doing is making a much more complex one giving the ability to create...

Celestia Star Builder

I worked on this for a bit and created a Celestia Star Builder using Visual Basic 2010. I am not sure if it will work on other computers, but it has the basic principles needed. How to: http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm228/Drydareelin/CSB_1.png Fill in the information, you still have to use the ...

Thank you so much :D Just changing the 'AppMag' sorted it for me.
I knew it was something simple.

Thanks again!

Adding the star WR 102ka seems to be an issue...

Recently, I've been reading upon the star WR 102ka and decided it might be an idea to implement it into Celestia. http://jumk.de/astronomie/big-stars/wr-102ka.shtml I've saved it as the correct file type, location and double checked my info but it just won't show up. "WR 102ka:Peony Nebula Star...

Re: Star 'Points' issue

The OGL2.0 works o all except the 'Points' star option.
My laptop is fairly new (I got it for xmas) and had needed no new updates since then... basically, I have it the way I got it.
I am worried downgrading my graphics driver would affect other programs though?

Re: Star 'Points' issue

Ah it worked :D It changed from 'openGL 2.0' to 'Basic' and the squares dissapeared :)

OpenGL Vertex Progam produced the squares.
Multitexture removes the squares.

Thank you so much for the help :) Do you know what the issue was in the end?

Thank you for replying; before I posted that, I should've added that I already went onto the Intel website and checked for any latest drivers - all mine are up to date.

Star 'Points' issue

I usually use the 'Fuzzy Points' option for stars but I prefer the 'Points' option
Whenever I apply it, I get these weird squares in the sky.

Laptop Specs:

Novatech, Windows 7 64bit
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU B950 @ 2.10 GHz
RAM: 4.00GB

Hope that is enough information ._.

Thanks
