Oh, I forgot the most obvious solution. If we use the "Enter" key, we can search for any object... :think:

Re: Search function in the new Celestia 1.7 64 bit 11.28 version

Thanks for your reply. I like the new "celestial bodies window", it makes discovering a new star/planetary system much more easier, but without a search function it is very frustrating sometimes...

Search function in the new Celestia 1.7 64 bit 11.28 version

I can't seem to find any search function in the new Celestia 1.7 64 bit 2017.11.28 version.

Is it possible to search for a star using only the name of the star?

If it is possible, how can I do that?

Re: New 64 bit 1.7 version suggestions and bugs

Thanks Alexell, the new version is VERY GOOD and very different! But in a good way!

May I suggest that you leave the previous 64 bit version (dev7) on your download site as Celestia 1.6.2?

New 1.7 11.17 version does not run

I'm not able to run the new Celestia 1.7 11.17 version.

I copied all files to the Celestia 1.6.1 root directory but I have "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)" error.

What can be the problem?

Re: How to generate 20 million stars for a spiral galaxy?

I agree with selden. If stc->dat conversion is possible, then with 400MB data and running the 64 bit version of Celestia it should not be a problem. By the way in a few years time the ESO-GAIA data (1 billion stars!) will be available, so it is time to start experimenting with huge data files. Is th...

Re: Heights and models

Is it possible to use bump or normal maps simultaneously with a 3D-model? Use Anim8tor for basic UV mapping and after that cmodview (generate tangents). You may have to edit the ascii cmod file. But in my opinion it is quite hard to match the normal map of a spherical object with the normal map of ...

Re: Heights and models

Bump or normal maps are two dimensional optical illusions, they are just virtual shadows and lights basically. 3D models are "real" objects in the virtual space, with "real" shadows...normal maps on 3D models are also illusions...specular maps are the the closest thing to a "...
