Re: Solar System Objects for Celestia

I found it in the links of my old pc. On the images (screenshots) that embellish the site we can see the date of 2003. On the site, there are links to GeoCities but no longer work because GeoCities has been closed by Yahoo! in 2009. The Jestrstuff site on 50megs.com is still present but for how long...

Re: Solar System Objects for Celestia

All of this goes in the right direction.

Re: Here is how to tell Celestia to load only select add-ons

Yes, this technique with multiple cfg and extras, and specific shortcuts is very interresting.
Thank you for highlighting this old post

update for LUT5

Here is an update for locations under LUT5 beta 2. These are the new locations for Ceres and Ryugu since 12/2018. Since there are new location types for Ceres (LA and LB) and a new object (Ryugu AA, DO, FO, SA) with respect to the latest Croc changes, you have to modify config.lua, renderlocsbox.lua...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated April 30, 2019

Asteroids invisible with LUT To limit the number of objects on the screen, asteroids are 'Visible false' in their .ssc file; that is, if you go to Bennu in the traditional way of Celestia, Bennu will be well selected but invisible. To make it visible, there are 2 ways with LUT. - use VIDIBA: each ch...

Re: celestia 1.7.0

if you have a message from Windows notifying you of the lack of vcruntime140.dll , it is certainly that this file is missing in Windows / System32 or it is corrupted. The best solution to put things back in place is to uninstall: Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable (corresponds to version 14....

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

This post has nothing to do with your current discussion but concerns version 1.7.0 in progress. In 1.6.1, the contextual menu of the stars (right click) makes it possible to see and go towards the planets which revolve around the star; it's the same thing between a planet and its moons. I regret th...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated April 30, 2019

In fact, LUT5 creates links to objects accessible by a single click. As the software is open, all links can be modified by editing scripts in a text editor. The strength of this interface is that it allows you to combine several commands needed Celestia in a simple click (object, tracking, time, col...

Re: New Celestia catalog data specification - request for opinion

If you want to modify the reading mode and its interpretation by the Celestia engine, you must make the name of the reference catalog, ie HIP and TYC, mandatory. rather than write 32349: Sirius: Sirius A: GJ 244 A: 2MASS J06450887-1642566 A: 9 CMa: BD-16 1591: HD 48915: HR 2491: IRAS 06429-1639: LHS...

Re: New Celestia catalog data specification - request for opinion

Janus, Yes, I understand better what you suggested. We only need hope that no sub galaxy or cluster objects exist with more than 26 stars orbiting it directly. ... Alpha Centauri:Alpha Halleys for instance could give an error that comets do not orbit barycenters, only stars. Which gives rise to the ...

Re: New Celestia catalog data specification - request for opinion

Janus, Using your Sirius example, this could be a solution but not all sites agree. So Nasa Exoplanets Archive gives GJ 244 A the name of Sirius. Wikipedia for Sirius speaks of a white star (GJ 244 A is a white star) but in the list of its other names indicates GJ 244 A / B (hence a barycenter). It ...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated April 30, 2019

fyr02, I suspected that not having LUA/LUT might be the cause of many bugs I have. Looks like I was right. I think I did not understand. :eek: LUT does not prevent bugs in addons. The bugs in a Celestia installation usually come from addons or hardware incompatibility. The bugs in LUT5 were eliminat...

Re: New Celestia catalog data specification - request for opinion

Lafuente_Astronomy,

I agree with you. Including catalogs whose names contain letters or signs will be complicated. The key of each star must remain logical and simple.
It seems simple with HIP or HD but already less obvious with TYC where we tend to err on added 0 or 2MASS, IRAS, WISE …

Ok, I can help. I myself have a bug on this version of vidiba with respect to the scroll of the box. This bug seems to be on my pc because Croc did not have it. To avoid it and to continue to use celestia with LUT, I launch celestia by means of the lua debug program "Decoda" and there curi...
