Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I took a closer look at a linux qt5 installation last night. It looks like all the translation folders are installed separately in a locale folder next to the Celestia folder. In the installation the INNO script produces, the folders are in po and po2. I created those. But they are probably not need...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

If Windows Defender is running on your system, it will not want to run. I can force it to run and everything works but it gets installed to Program Files(x86 automatically. Until I figure out what's going wrong I do not want to provide this installer because I do not want to compromise anyone's syst...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I think this works. Can't be sure about translations though. I created a folder called po2 and placed all translation folders in it. Anyhow here is what was produced. A Celestia Windows 10 Installer. Sorry, Hit a snag. When I downloaded the file I just uploaded, it reacted differently. First, window...

No. I call that one h344. The name of the group of files I used from Mars Express mission. The mesh from h344 was added to valles marinaris.

Added after 41 seconds:

Re: Creating a 3D Mars Model from USGS ISIS3 Data

If you noticed the dates from the post it was 15 years ago. :wink: I still remember some of it but the thing is, more recently, I used a script written by Fridger and all the discussions were posted on CelestialMatters which apparently no longer exists. I could have sworn that it was part of the too...

https://celestia.space/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5356&p=39715&hilit=zfold#p39715 Take a look at this page. Blender can make it easy to do what you want to do. The basics are there. Look at this. I used cmodfix to turn a celestia model "vesta" from binary to ascii. The following...

Re: Creating a 3D Mars Model from USGS ISIS3 Data

What build environment are you using? With windows I'm using Visual Studio. I would suggest building Celestia. The tools are built as well. Just need to turn them on in CMakeLists.txt. Top Celestia folder. Anyhow, I'm trying to get an installer built that will install Celestia on a windows system. S...

Re: Creating a 3D Mars Model from USGS ISIS3 Data

What you need is a raw file of 16bit signed integers each number represents a height value. Tif is an image which may be rgb or rgba. These files may contain 8 bit numbers representing a color. That file may be a geotiff. You would need GDAL to process it. I tried to export it with ISIS and it only ...

Re: Creating a 3D Mars Model from USGS ISIS3 Data

I'm not sure. I know Fridger and Chris were using it but I can't remember what it was called. There was long discussion on the subject but most of it was on the CelestiaMatters forum. That was closed down for some time now. I think it may be cmodsphere or txt2cmod. Yes that dem would work. You shoul...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Took a closer look and ........ Well not exactly, seems all the translation files were installed in C: . That is the sane folder that Users, Program Files, etc. All the other files went to CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX. It shouldn't matter though right? As long as I get the script right? Cut / paste were the...

I found out something today that will make this difficult. All the info I need to help you are on drives / computers that are in storage and not accessible to me at the moment. The software I wrote or modified to do this are not available. I would have needed to access CelestilalMatters forum to jog...

http://planetarygis.blogspot.com/2017/07/isis3-on-windows-10-bash.html You can try that page wsl. Then keep in mind that to get the folder with the dems you need rsync. I'm not sure if that can be run on windows either. There is another option that you could consider. VMWARE. That would let you run...

I installed ISIS. https://github.com/USGS-Astrogeology/ISIS3#installation You probably don't need install it though.

molaMarsPlanetaryRadius0005.cub That file is part of Isis3 data/base folder. It's in the public domain. It's from USGS AstroGeology. I can't remember it's size but it is quite large. It is the topographic map used for processing Mars images. There is also a program that I think is part of Celestia ...
