Re: Need help getting textures to show on 3ds models in Celestia

make sure that the texture dimensions are a power of two, ie: 256,512,1024 etc

Re: I NEED HELP

It's because Celestia was loading deathstar2.ssc before loading starwars.ssc and not finding Endor. (ssc files are loaded alphabetically and D is before S)

Re: Celestia on Mandrake 9.0

Sorry, my earlier post was wrong. :oops: I just ran a rpm -qf on the libGL files and they are apparently provided by Mandrake's XFree86-libs and XFree86-devel RPMs. :)

Mandrake 9.0. No problems compiling celestia or installing it from rpm. :D

Re: going from a circle to a rectangle

Search the forums for 'flexify'. It's a plugin for photoshop that'll do what you need.

Re: Convert TLE info into SSC

Well that's weird, the permissions are all ok, the server must be using some funky extension detection or something. :? Renamed them to .perlscript and they seem to download fine now.

Re: Convert TLE info into SSC

Thanks for letting me know about the perl files. The files are served from a hosting company so unfortunately I don't have total control over the server settings. I could probably solve the issue through .htaccess files somehow but in the meantime I've renamed the .pl files to .pl.txt as you suggest...

Re: Can anyone help

Are you sure it's symlinked correctly? Remember that Unix filesystems are case-sensitive. What output do you get if you type into a shell:
ls -al /usr/X11R6/lib/libGL.so
if it's there and points to another file, then make sure that file exists and is spelled properly. Hope this helps.

Re: Convert TLE info into SSC

I hacked together a perl script a while back to do this:
http://www.skullcave.com/celestia/tle2ssc.pl
Open it up in a text program to see how it works and edit it as needed. You need Perl installed to run the script, of course. :D

Re: planets and moons become white balls...

Textures must be a power of 2. ie: their dimensions must be 128,256,512,1024,2048,4096,8192 or 16384 pixels along each side.

Re: Homeworld - Anyone played?

I played it years ago and remember it being a fantastic game, like nothing I'd ever seen before. The nebulous backgrounds and cinematic music was amazing. I don't remember the earlier levels clearly though.

S/2002 J1 - Jupiter's 40th moon

A new 'moon' has been discovered orbiting Jupiter.

Re: New names for Jupiter's moons

Thanks! I also noticed that your moon files cause conflicts with celestia because they includes moons that are already in the solarsys.ssc file. Yeah I know, I put all the gas giant moons in their own ssc files so my solarsys.ssc file only contains the 9 planets + Luna, Phobos, Deimos & Charon....

Re: New names for Jupiter's moons

I don't think the default celestia installation or the minor moons add-on has them. You can find their orbital parameters in my ssc files at http://www.skullcave.com/celestia/
(I'll update the files with the new names tonight if I have time)

Re: Download Large DDS textures here

You're probably downloading it with internet explorer and the file is being corrupted. Try using a dedicated download manager like Getright or Flashget.
