I see. I never would have figured it out on my own. Thank you for your help.

Re: Celestia's 20th anniversary

(on-topic) I find it lamentable that I had little to no way of knowing about this program that far back; I only learned about it as recently as 2014. I discovered Solar System Scope as far back as 2011, and since then I've been looking for a program/application that will let me explore other star sy...

Re: List of Celestia addons

I've lost track on the status of the Motherlode for almost 2 years; it wasn't until just today that I attempted to look back to see if the 'Lode was still there. I was relieved to see it was still there...then I stumbled upon these threads and saw that it had indeed gone away and was resurrected. I'...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

I remember playing around with .ssc files a few years back, and I was able to put in orbit around Pandora a Romulan D'deridex Warbird. I used a myriad of Star Trek addons (one of them had the warbird model and texture files) as well as the Avatar addon that I downloaded from the Celestia Motherlode ...

Re: Celestia 1.6.2 is out

I have a question:

Will any and all files that are used by version 1.6.1 (ssc/stc/etc) work with version 1.6.2? I've since replaced the hard drive to my computer and installed a new operating system, and I haven't installed Celestia yet; previous hard drive had version 1.6.1 installed.

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Thanks @bh.

It didn't have much in the way of Star Wars, but I was able to find the texture and .3ds model for the Executor.

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

If inquiries about fictional spacecraft are welcome on this thread, I do have a few: When I was hoarding addons from the Celestia Motherlode back in mid-2014, I was disappointed that there were missing files in the Star Wars Atlas addon. In there was the .ssc file for the Executor, but missing were ...

Castor addon Help Request

My version of Celestia is 1.6.1. My computer is a 64-bit Windows 10 desktop that was updated from Win7 to Win10 in 2016. After having installed the addon from Celestia Motherlode, I've noticed that Castor's primary barycenter isn't visible, neither from the Sol system's view nor upon approaching the...

Re: Black Body Star Textures

I don't mean to sound like I'm nitpicking or heckling, but wouldn't M-class stars have less and larger convection cells than your typical G-class star like the sun?

Re: TRAPPIST-1 possible textures

I haven't been back on this forum in half a year. I should check the Celestia Motherlode to see if the corrected Trappist-1 addon was ever added.

Re: Still cannot find VY Canis Majoris - checked FAQ

With "modify," I should be able to override the verbiage/nomenclature of what's already displaying on the star's entry, correct?

And to answer your question, I say sure...

Re: TRAPPIST-1 possible textures

John71, I would love to have a copy of the .zip or .rar file for your version of Trappist-1; it's far better than what was offered on the Celestia Motherlode.

Re: Custom Science-Fiction Pictures from Celestia

Thank you for that, but your previous post looked like you embedded image URLs from imgur. I tried that, but got the error that images were to be attachments only.
