Re: What the heck happened to celestiamotherlode.net?

FYI: The Motherlode is not yet lost (and all add-ons are still there). After the failure we can access it again in the background. But we still have to do some maintenance work and clean up after the breakdown. Then we have to check if the website still works as it should. Unfortunately this will no...

Re: Nasa ISS model hightly detailled

The dragon crew is almost finished but I can't put the textures of space x on it.

Are you missing the logos or the permission by SpaceX to use them?

Re: A new Addon Repository concept (Formerly called "Should we make a new Motherlode?")

Adirondack : Alternatively, could you promise that you and anybody else running the Motherlode will check the site more frequently for updates? Thanks, Luke 1. We only can publish what the contributors do upload - so blame the contributors not the admins 2. We check whether the addon does offer som...

Re: A new Addon Repository concept (Formerly called "Should we make a new Motherlode?")

(and invent the wheel a second time) Can anything from the current motherlode get carried over so we don't literally have to start from scratch? Well, as far as I can see: No. The uploaders/contributors did allow the Motherlode to redistribute the Addons. So you have to gather your own stuff for yo...

Re: A new Addon Repository concept (Formerly called "Should we make a new Motherlode?")

Either get someone who is more active to admin the Motherlode, or make a new addon website as suggested in this thread. Hundred admins would have not prevent the blackout of the CML. So we do not need more admins to keep the CML up and running. Nor do we need more or other admins just to change eve...

Re: A new Addon Repository concept (Formerly called "Should we make a new Motherlode?")

I do know for a fact that John Van Vliet is more active on Celestial Matters, though. As for Ulrich Dickmann (Adirondack), I have no clue if he's still active or not. This seems to be a general issue on ibiblio right now (other sites also does not work properly there). Please be patient, we will tr...

@ JediTrekkie: Did you format your HHD as FAT? -> The 3.3 GB download will fail. Do you have enough disk space on your HDD? -> The download will fail when HDD gets full.

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development will begin soon

What will be the dev environment for 1.7.0?
QT4/5 I guess?

Or do you plan to change to QT for 2.0?

Re: Black Body Star Textures

I used exactly this filter for the O-K & L star textures. So you already know what to do. :wink: I don't see how the non-pow-of-2 texture is affecting the pinch effect? The non-power-of-2 does not effect the pinch effect! It's the cylindrical image (its upper & lower edges) itself, so to sa...

Re: Black Body Star Textures

Thanks, John, that's what I meant.
@ FarGetaNik: Go ahead, fix the scale for "mstar" (like e.g. 4096 x 2048) and eliminate the pinch!

Adirondack

Should look like this:
mstar_pinched.jpg


Please note: There are also some seams in your image! Eliminate them too.

Re: Black Body Star Textures

Isn't there a pinch filter in GIMP?
Like (in german words) Filter -> Verzerrungsfilter -> Polarkoordinaten... in Photoshop?

Re: WARNING PLAGIARISM !!!!!!

As a maintainer of the Motherlode I would like to save Luke's reputation! Generally everybody can select an authors name from drop down list when one uploads an add-on. Somebody must have selected Luke's name under the list and tried to pass it off as an add-on by Luke. Since the IP address of this ...

OT: I wouldn't hold my breath if using the "Contact us" link at the Motherlode. Last time I contacted them I never got a reply, so I'm not sure if anyone is home. We got (and replied) your email of June 11 (you did ask how many times your various addons have been clicked on / downloaded, e...
