Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

yes i would like to use this Starlink model but at the moment i don't know how to convert models for Orbiter to cmod model. I can see that these are text files close to cmod (ascii) but my knowledge ends there. No worries, the model is now converted into CMOD ready for Celestia. Currently, 11 out o...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

I'm currently working on a representation of a Starlink satellite in orbit for Celestia. The model is originally made for Orbiter . It is basically done, but still needed to implement it to all satellites coded by gironde in his SSCs. Gironde if you read this, you can use this for future updates in ...

Surveyor Landers

The NASA Surveyor program is a series of seven lunar landers intended to study the surface of the Moon up close from 1966 to 1968. Their findings would later prove to be critical to the eventual success of the Apollo program of landing a man on the moon before the decade of the 60s is out. Five land...

Earth Radiation Budget Satellite

The Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS) was the first satellite deployed directly from the Space Shuttle using the Canadarm. It was an Earth observation satellite operated by NASA from 1984 to 2005. As of 2021, it still remains as a derelict object in LEO. SSC Orbit is generally the same as STS-...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Thanks. Yes, I'm aware that the unlike the later variants, the first version of Progress (7K-TG) has no solar panels. But the design of the docking antennas of your Progress spacecraft addon back from 2018 resembles the IGLA system used by the 7K-TG. This is the primary reason why it was specificall...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Why does the orbit not pass in the Progress-M 1 model? Do you have the same phenomenon?
gironde, I also see that in mine. I think it only occurs on very small objects in Celestia, since asteroids and comets feature the same orbit rendering misalignment with spacecrafts

And now presenting the early Soviet space stations for Celestia! Inspired by how linuxman did his great ISS addon, it also featured every Soyuz, Progress, and TKS spacecraft that has ever visited the space stations (including Salyut 6 and 7) operated by the Soviet Union before Mir. To simplify insta...

The TKS spacecraft work in progress concurrently with Salyut 3, 4, and 5. Model from the AVSIM library.
However, I'm having trouble with rendering its lighting properly

EDIT: Lighting fixed, TKS mesh reuploaded to CMODView
