Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated December 30, 2019

I may have posted this on a previous post of CO release before but just to bump it up, here is the Horizon Problem that started with Version 7 (I think): When I just freshly landed: This problem is definitely in LUT.

It was enough to download and make sure that the coordinates are real.

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated December 30, 2019

Since Iapteus has a mesh, it should have a Radius defined, not SemiAxes This is not a bug and is done on purpose. Iapetus model is not flattened. Makemake and Quaoar (and possibly some other objects) have the same problem as Varda I will carefully study this problem. Some names that were missed: 38...

Found an error in asteroids.ssc. for 174567 Varda: SemiAxes is given as [ 395 361.425 361.425 ]. Should be [ 395 395 361.425 ] so that Varuna is oblate rather than oblong. Your fault. :smile: In next time always specify a three parameters in your excel-file. Between major releases, we will sometime...
