Re: Cosmic Explorer

Heres an update of what I have done thus far... I still need to work on the galaxy models as they are low in resolution and a bit blurry but Im trying to keep my framerate below 30 - 40 so i might have to look at other options to get them to look better... As you can see I managed to fill an entire ...

Re: Cosmic Explorer

So Celestia has ditched point sprites all together I take it and is now using cg to render them... So cg sprites dont suffer the same scaling problems as regular ones? No there are no news about galaxy rendering for the regular Celestia distribution. The work I am doing is for my forthcoming Celest...

Re: Atmosphere Code

Those MIE settings are very confusing. I've read all the threads about it but still can't make a tan colored sky. It was only by accident from randomly playing with the numbers that I was able to make a green atmosphere. I think Ive grasped the beginnings of this code... I was able to repoduce a ta...

Well theres no way I know or orienting the barycenter so all those calculations would do me no good in that respect... I need to orient the orbital paths along the barycenter to equal the galactic coordinates as you mentioned but unfortunately I do not know the proper command to do so... Angle does ...

Ok well models might be pretty neat... Might prove to make some bizarre looking stars that would drive Fridger nuts LOL like a green bumpy star hehe...
