Re: LaTeX support is back

Should be Einstein's field equations, right?
At least there is some scientific content on the new forum :wink:

Re: Beta Add-On needs testers.

5 times 2 = 10, 40 times two = 80, 800 times 2 = 1600, 1600 times 2 = 3200... That is what I UNDERSTOOD to be the power of 2. Phil, the crucial point is that you start with a five: 5 times 2. So the result of your calculation is 5 times a power of 2: 2^n * 5. Of course all of this is basic maths :w...

Re: Do you really want that??

Well, as I see it, the creation of add-ons has made Celestia more rich and captivating and thus there was much activity in that section over the past years. It seems natural that add-on creators like to present pictures of their especially attractive or special add-ons. Also I think it was a good id...

Re: Star Trek in Celestia

My personal opinion on these models is that they all look mass produced without real details and love put into it. [...] But Celestia is about a lot more than being used as a render utility for low-res scifi-models and associated pictures. [...] But taking the works of others and just mass producin...

Re: This site doesn't have a GANGNAM STYLE post ...

The free stealthy version does NOT use private proxies, but public ones over which the add-on has no control. Hence during the time when stealthy is active (green icon) home banking , for example, bears considerable dangers! Oh yes, that is an important remark. Of course I'd always keep Stealthy de...

This video is unavailable Unfortunately, this video is not available in Germany because it may contain music for which GEMA has not granted the respective music rights. Fridger, did you ever try the Firefox add-on named "Stealthy"? It works perfectly for me. No problem anymore with youtub...

Re: *Twitch* It just keeps coming and coming over and over a

The issue has inflamed recently and members are at each other's throats. I propose we move all the monotonous Star Trek material to its own thread where it can be easily ignored by those without interest. I apologize for contributing to the inflammation earlier, but, truth be told, I don't think St...

Re: CelestialMatters News

Even for non-professionals that are just interested in astronomy and related topics, CM is in fact an excellent source, just think about the exclusive news about what was going on at CERN related to the superfast neutrinos. And in my opinion the list which Fridger presented in his last post shows im...

Re: Help with activities.

Nordlys21, it is my understanding that you should paste all files and folders into the Celestia ED main folder. The program will then be started from the Cel URL links in the word documents that belong to the different activities. But the safest way would be to follow the instructions in the guide &...

Re: Celestia 1.6.0-User's Guide - completed

Frank,

thank you!
Your User's Guide (the former versions as well as the new one) is an absolute must-have for every Celestia user. Both comprehensive and clearly arranged -- in any case helpful.
Also appreciated by me.

Well, at least by keyboard you can always select the parent object: Just press the back-space key. E. g. when Moon is selected, after pressing back-space once, earth is selected. If you continue pressing back-space you select sun, then solar system barycenter and finally you are in the mode when no ...
