Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

I have tried to do an installation from install notes and it still seems terribly confusing. First, I can not find the "Moon Collections" addon. I downloaded "Moon missions" addon, but I do not know if you are referring to it, since it does not contain the "EC-Apollo" ...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hello, For the Russian program, Luna, we have mainly models of landers, but few models of satellite carriers.

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

sometimes I don"t like the quality of models from ORBITER... remember what I made with models of VIKING... Well most pre-2010 Orbiter models have that kind of quality you saw @toutatis...but it has improved significantly from 2010 onwards. An example of this is the Skylab from Orbiter is way m...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

There must be a problem in the ssc file for Gemini. Indeed, Gemini 10,11 and 12 remain invisible while GATV-5005, GATV-5006 and GATV-5001A are clearly visible. Is there no mistake in the path of Gemini and with Center and Observer? @gironde, that's because I put the last three Gemini missions' (plu...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hey there...since the MSH files on AVSIM are inaccessible without an account, I'll just post the Salyut 3, 4, and 5 meshes here on the thread

The SSC files are ready. Umm...@toutatis can you convert these models when you have finished your ongoing projects? Thanks in advance :biggrin:

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Bravo, @toutatis! The resulting refinement is a million times way better than the original Orbiter 2006 model! But, have you noticed a file named "bioshield.msh"? It is the part jettisoned shortly before the Lander is sent to Mars, and I think it would be great to add it too. :biggrin: :bi...

Too many meshes I see

@Diigg, unfortunately there is no trajectory data available for any of the two Vikings on any NASA website, especially HORIZONS

All ISEE probes share the same bus. Technically, it is available already on the Motherlode as the ICE (ISEE-3) spacecraft By the way, I found free MSH models of the TKS, Salyut 4 and Almaz (Salyut 3 and 5) on the website, https://library.avsim.net However, to access them, you should have an account ...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

.I tried to look for a free 3D model of the Viking orbiters on the web, but no luck. :sad:

There is a free simple .MSH file of the Viking spacecraft available on the Orbit Hangar Mods website though, but I don't know how to make them compatible for Celestia

Viking Orbiters (1975-1980)

The Viking program consisted of a pair of American space probes sent to Mars, Viking 1 and Viking 2. Each spacecraft was composed of two main parts: an orbiter designed to photograph the surface of Mars from orbit, and a lander designed to study the planet from the surface. The orbiters also served ...
