Re: Celestia under Vista

Im not sure what the fuss is about vista.

I have been running Celestia Perfectly since Vista's Launch.

But If you want a nice direct replacement for skyglobe (used to use skyglobe myself) Try Stellarium, its a very nice realtime sky viewer. This works in exactl...

Re: UPDATE!! - Ultimate Terraformed Mars Texture

That produces surely incorrect results for the applications required in Celestia. Standard normalmap generators assume /flat/ geometries of the surfaces. We need normalmaps on /spherical/ or even more complex curved surfaces! Ahh that would be why i was getting strange results and seam lines then T...

It would be great to see all eight planets in a line - each showing the internal structures and each in their original size. as an educational add-on.

Best is a matter of Opinion My advice would be to search out the maps or use the motherload here > http://celestiamotherlode.net You could download three of the same maps at a time. Then re-name the files to the same filename and put one in each of the three Res folders. Then switch between the reso...

Re: Lost Comet tails

Thank you BH and Fridger.

The Comet tails certainly are looking nice now, they seemed to be very squashed and sharp looking in Pre 1

And congratulation on Celestial Matters too, fantastic site.
