Applause!

You are one of very few, giving proper credit to the work of others. I wish I'd see more of this.
Nice pics!

Re: Post your Celestia pictures!

Yes... it's a fantastic model... puts my meagre effort in the trash...heh. My poor mac won't run it though...grrr. My poor Mac won't run it either. Linuxman's 2001 works fine (but slow), but if I try his ISS, Celestia just crashes. So I use your lovely model instead. Your "meagre effort" ...

Re: Celestia 1.6.1 released

Unfortunately, Celestia development is in deep "coma" since quite a while. Patients suffering coma sometimes wake up spontaneously, sometimes they never wake up again. There are a number of concrete reasons for the present situation that I don't want to detail now. Celestia.Sci is NOT Cel...

Re: Celestia 1.6.1 released

By the way, when will the Celestia 1.7/2.0 be released? It's been a long time since the last version came out and not even progress report or something like that. Development is shrouded in mistery... Yes, I was wondering about this too. I've read about many enhancements Fridger was doing for "...

I'm using Celestia 1.6.1 on OSX 10.5.8 (PPC), dual 2.0GHz PowerMac G5, ATI X800 (256MB), 4GB RAM. I get consistent crashes using virtual textures. I've installed (the amazing addons!) jestr's Earth II and JohnVV's Moon, and I've found that after viewing a certain number of textures (by zooming or or...
