Re: How to clear all displays and labels from the Celestia screen?

Hi john71,

Try pressing V until they disappear. If they are on Lua Edu Tools, press CTRL + I.

Re: Convert CMOD Files to OBJ?

I have a request for anyone with the software capable of doing this:

Can someone convert the attached CMOD file to an OBJ file?

Note: The original model is from the Motherlode...I have just merged the meshes into a single one.

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Also in the plans for this year... Toutatis-4 - Saturn - Titan (or Enceladus)... Toutatis-5 - Uranus - Ariel (or Oberon)... Toutatis-6 - Neptune - Triton... Toutatis-7 - Pluto (or another dwarf planet in the Kuiper belt) What about improved Gaia, Hipparcos, Spitzer, and the other nonfictional space...

toutatis, How much progress have you made on the non-fictitious spacecraft models?

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated August 30, 2018

Now that the 3D Asteroid Catalogue has improved models of Janus and Epimetheus (thanks to LukeCEL), if only someone had improved texture maps for the two moons, since the old Voyager maps look terrible.

Re: Model of Pluto

CM1215, please put up the download for the model of the Moon! Thanks. Ok then, I can do that. Here is the 256k poly model of the Moon from the 3D Asteroid Catalogue, UV mapped and given a 22k texture and 28k normal map. There is only VERY MINOR offset in some regions, but nothing too noticeable. No...

Re: Model of Pluto

This model has already been converted in Celestia Origin...The model is available in the downloadable archive for the project. As for the others, I have worked with the Io model (it has a couple problems), and the models of Tethys and Iapetus are in Celestia Origin as well. And I've worked with the ...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated August 30, 2018

Art Blos, I suggest changing the color of Neptune's moon, Proteus, to a reddish color. The only color shot should probably be used as a refrence point. There's a problem with this: Voyager 2 wasn't there to take true color images of the moons it flew by. Many of the color images it took were not ac...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

There's an app for mobile devices called Solar Walk 2; it's a 3D space simulator much like Celestia (although without the customization capabilities). They have very detailed 3D models for spacecraft that we're currently missing, such as Gaia and the Viking orbiters. I wonder if one of us could cont...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

I will see... No problem for me... only time I need... Ok cool! Another thing I've found: from what I've seen the circular cover for the telescope (the "dust cover") was jettisoned once Spitzer began its mission, so there is no need to include it in the model, unless you want to make an e...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hey toutatis, I found a model of the Spitzer Space Telescope that is much better than the one in Celestia Origin. It can be found here: http://www.spitzer.caltech.edu/explore/24-Models It's the "Lightwave 3D" file. Could you prepare this for use in Celestia? I have discovered that the ligh...

It happens every once in a while, but if you give it some time, it'll probably pick up again.
