Re: 2019 LF6

Please
Try not to forget the class of objects you create. Otherwise Celestia can not guess if it's an asteroid or a planet …

2019 LF6 : Atira family no PHA

Re: Extrasolar, Stars and Exoplanets for Celestia

nice achievement But, as it is about exoplanets, you must assign them the class "planet" "Kepler-186 b" "Kepler-186" { Class "planet" Texture "k186b.*" BumpMap "k186bbump.*" BumpHeight 10 Radius 6880.68 EllipticalOrbit ... :hi:

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. So I start; I found a site that seems abandoned today and that dates from the great era of 'geocities'. http://www.jestrstuff.50megs.com/extras/addons/addons.html Sans titre 2.jpg There are the models and textures of the majority of the minor moons and moons ...

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.

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 unified runtime database

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 unified runtime database

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 unified runtime database

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 ...
