Re: Pictures from Celestia

From Wikipedia: Methone has two different sharply defined albedo regions, one distinctly (~13%) darker centered on Methone's leading point.[6] Its brighter area has an albedo of ~0.70.[6] UV and IR spectra gave no indication of a color difference between the two regions, suggesting that a physical r...

Re: Pictures from Celestia

Someone should make a game inside Celestia. That would be so cool.

Or maybe we need a special game language, like using *.cgame files to build game environments on planets or in space...

Re: List of impossible add-ons

Whoa, very nice list.

You can have strange colored stars, but without the glow:

You can have very small objects, but Celestia won't show them, only as a point.

List of impossible add-ons

Are there any add-ons which cannot be realized in Celestia 1.6.2.2?

It seems that in the last 20 years every possible idea surfaced...

Or am I wrong? :think:

Re: Celestia and video codecs

OK, I solved it under Windows 10 64 bit. You have to install the K-Lite Codec Pack MEGA version. Xvid and Mp4 encoding will be possible after that.

Celestia and video codecs

I'm not able to record videos with Divx and Huffyuv video codecs using Celestia.

Celestia won't even show the codecs as an option, but they are installed.

Anybody else experienced this problem?

Re: Merging Cosmonium with Celestia?

That said, I would gladly discuss how to steer the two projects (and avoid a collision course) and benefit from each other, there has been some nice constructive suggestions in this thread already. Thank you, thank you, thank you. That's all I hoped to read... :clap: I'm also getting convinced that...
