Re: A Forking Commit Thread.

The exact SSC i'm using: "Planet Nine" "Sol" { Class "planet" Texture "exo-class4.*" NightTexture "exo-class4night.*" Radius 20000 Oblateness 0.017 Atmosphere { Height 130 Lower [ 0.6 0.65 1.0 ] Upper [ 0.5 0.55 0.9 ] Sky [ 0.5 0.7 0.9 ] } Elliptical...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

@Janus

In fact a minor form of this glitch happens in the latest x64 build in BinTray, but only the Sun flicks.

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Oh i'm currently using celestia-5441-RaDecDist-Fix.7z from Janus with Celestia 1.7 data, and sometimes when rotating bodies in outer solar system (aka a Planet Nine extra i have) the stars sometime flicks. I got this bug in two machines: a desktop with AMD RX 560 GPU (drivers updated) and a laptop w...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

How can i install Janus's forks? Particularly the 100 billion LY limit? Should i get the data .zip from the celestia build repository?

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Interesting. I think for it happen a full transition to x64 will be obligatory. And other efficiency changes to data file consuming to load so much data.

Re: Sol has a sibling.

THANKS A LOT!

Added after 3 minutes 44 seconds:
Anyway i created a GH issue addressing this (althrough in Wikipedia they also say this star is a G3, dunno what is correct).

Re: Sol has a sibling.

Is possible to override the type via an extra, just like we do with any SSC file?

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I wonder if one day Celestia would be capable to handling Gaia's full catalog (and other probes cataloging other objects)

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Thanks for the new build onetwothree! Just one thing i noticed on the updated data files: The dwarf planets added by this commit are duplicated by the entries on asteroids.ssc (Ceres) and outersys.ssc (Haumea, Eris and other TNOs). What is the most accurate and what about merge the changes in the fi...

Request: 2017 MB7

Notable by: being the non-comet with farthest aphelion known.

Can someone do that one?

Re: Tại sao nên chọn đồng hồ gỗ treo tường cao cấp RHYTHM 4MJ854WD06?

There are several enhanced versions of StarGen "floating around the Web" which have been optimized for Celestia.

Can you give us an example?

The only relevant result on google was a fork i made of stargen source in my github, but i never even touched the code.

Help creating an atmosphere

Hi!

I'm trying to make a fictional earth-sized ice planet, and i want to replicate this atmosphere:

According to this document i need to use Rayleigh paramenter but i'm clueless about how to reproduce that.

Can someone help me?

Re: Planet Nine redefined orbit

In fact i just throw a scenario on that subreddit (its all about hypothetical scenarios and the impact on society and science).

Anyway here is my take on this fictional P9. Sadly the textures are bad, i got them on google because i dont have photoshop right now:

Thanks! Will adapt this ssc to this idea. Just need to find a snowball earth-like texture to it.

Planet Nine redefined orbit

Recent news showed seems like Planet Nine is smaller and closer than previously thought. So my question is: can someone make a refined SSC for this new scenario? Sources: ⋅  https://www.iflscience.com/space/hypothetical-planet-nine-might-be-smaller-and-closer-to-us-than-previously-thought/...
