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

Well, if ever you'll want to make more nebulae in future releases of Celestia, aside from the Lemon Slice, perhaps the Veil Nebula, the Tarantula Nebula and several other nebulae ought to be included. And improvements in the design of other nebulae can be included as well. In addition, perhaps a mo...

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

1. IC 3568/Lemon Slice Nebula. It has a relatively simple shape and should be easy to do. Now nebulae are not included in our plans. 2. The texture of Vesta needs to be seriously updated. Overall the color is not correct and should be a little more brownish. I believe FarGetaNix made one a while ba...

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

I wanted to take some screenshots of certain nebulae so I enabled the "Nebulae" addons, and even my view options has "Nebulae" enabled. But when I came to the Nebula itself, I see nothing. Is this a bug or did I fail to do something to make it visible? Very strange. I have not c...

Re: C/2019 Q4 (Borisov) - first interstellar comet

New data about size - between 2 and 16 kilometers. I entered an average value of 9 kilometers. The trajectory is updated.

I remember this request. The trajectory was already started to create, but then there was not enough time and other tasks appeared. Maybe get lucky this time.

It is not true. I even created a trial version of VT for the red dwarf. I did not add this because there was no time to create textures for all spectral classes.

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

Despite that there is a high-res texture pack, I think I will stick with the medium-res pack just to conserve space and have better performance. The collection is divided to give the user a choice. :smile: May I ask why? I actually came here looking for "the most current information about cele...

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

1. Ganymede's normal map is misaligned with the texture in a few places 2. Io and the normal map are severely misaligned in some places. The problem and its causes are known, but fixing it is not so simple. We need normals that fully correspond to surface maps. 3. Add the new Bennu map Where is thi...

As you wish. But it is wrong to compare these projects. Concepts and goals are too different.
