Re: Increase the size of galactic and star bases

Art Blos, is it ok if I send this link to the "Time to Restart Development" post? I do think your question is necessary for the development of Celestia 1.7.0 after all. It should be noticed anyway. Another thing is that 1.7.0 is still unknown when it comes out. We must continue to improve...

Re: Increase the size of galactic and star bases

http://celestiamotherlode.net/catalog/dataplots.php This is not what is needed. Speech about galaxies.dsc . And while a billion is too much (Around 150+ GB I believe) It was calculated that about 20 GB (which is still very heavy for Celestia). Optimally for stars.dat would be about 100 megabytes.

Increase the size of galactic and star bases

There are unpleasant considerations that 10 thousand galaxies and 2 million stars by modern standards are too few. :sad: Many simulators on these indicators left us far behind. I am sure there will be people who can increase the sizes of bases several times. The task is not to add all existing objec...

Why designate them locations? It is enough turn on the names of the spacecraft and everything will be visible.

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

Can someone make a texture to show Methone as it really looks like? I support the request. I really haven't come across the right texture yet. :sad: Also, I'd like an addon for Rhea's hypothetical rings, every time I try adding them to the files, everything after it vanishes from Celestia due to an...

I have never read about such a theory. The planet may be Super-Earth, but certainly not a copy of our planet. On the moons to speak at all prematurely.
