Re: Pictures from Celestia

Why, if a texture can't be distributed, it can't be shown? It doesn't work like that. A new picture is another piece of "art", which is different from the base texture. The problem is with the distribution of that (edited) base texture.

Re: Pictures from Celestia

I just learned the best textures are textures that can never be used. The situation is not that tragic, but can be annoying. This is the copyright status of the Jupiter texture: This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. For uses not allowed by that license, co...

Re: Pictures from Celestia

This should be considered as a release in the future I have two problems considering the release of my add-ons: 1.) they are getting better every month, yes, the same ones 2.) I'm lazy to check the legal status of the textures (releasing or distributing them is NOT personal use). :think: By the way...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I have a question. Is it possible to integrate BlenderGIS into Celestia 1.8 or 2.0? It is a fantastic addon for Blender, which can download terrain data from Google and other free data sources. https://github.com/domlysz/BlenderGIS/wiki Celestia would be able to draw Earth terrains (even cities and ...

Planetographic [ 77.428 18.52 0.5 ]

If it's not working, then you have to rotate the mesh in Anim8tor, before converting it to cmod.

Re: Celestial Matters site alive again!

"Due to personal reasons the project is on hold".

That would be sufficient, if it is the case. I hope that not everybody is affected by the same problem. It would be highly unlikely.

Re: Celestial Matters site alive again!

Let's be clear, no one is accusing no one. We are saying that disappearing with a publicly hyped project is not very nice. Letting down their fans is not very nice. I hope they will eventually release the software. This is the best way they can prove their good intensions. By the way, they can retra...

Oh well then would you be so kind to tell us the address of the project's new website?

You know, to reach the free utilities?
