Back in June, Greg sent me a large archive with all the new models. This is a huge amount of work, but I hope this year everything will be added.

Ok, I'll fix it.

The number of Dione`s locations (77) did not change relative to version 1.6.1.
In both screenshots, the locations are clearly not from Celestia Origin.

Obviously, there will be, but many stars will lose names. :toothless:
In fact, downloading this file takes very little time compared to the others.

It has not fully downloaded to the server. Wait a bit.

Just in case I say that the archive weighs 3.41 GB.

In the source database there was a classification. However, we have fewer textures than there are types of exoplanets. In the future we add more.
