Re: Extrasolar Planets (updated catalogue)

My "stars within galaxies" add-ons are semi-fictional; they shouldn't really be in the main Celestia package. Sure, they represent real stars as accurately as possible. However, their actual positions in 3D space are completely wrong because we don't know the distance to them. Other param...

Re: Extrasolar Planets (updated catalogue)

I still plan on finishing up and releasing mine soon. Textures are a problem though, we should have a discussion on this. Of course you decide. But personally, I expect from you first of all a new catalog of galaxies. :smile: Sirius_Alpha's exoplanetary base already exceeds its analogues in many pa...

1) We have our own full base from which the release is formed.
2) Include the full base in the release = the release will be very heavy for the vast majority of systems. :fie:

Re: For Celestia: Sun becoming red giant anyone?

As part of "Celestia Origin" has long been such an addon, which uses more accurate theoretical calculations (orbits, object sizes, and so on).

Re: Another communication method for Celestia

Calling Art Blos and pirogronian, with regards to Anthony's proposal for a Reddit server for Celestia, should we allow it or should we inform Alexell regarding this?

gironde < Looks interesting. :smile:
While I want a break from the development (it really took away a lot of my strength). Later we can discuss bugs that are in LUT and which I will not be able to fix by myself.

It seems like the texture and normal map on the moon are not properly aligned... this only happens on some places though.
It seemed to you. The lunar texture has not changed for several years and during this period no inconsistencies were found.
