1199 is a much nicer number than 1200 ... and It's palindromic symmetrical. ;-)

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Wow... Thanks very much Chuft-Captain... You're welcome...No big deal. :) FYI, This model exhibits some very bad Z-fighting from certain viewpoints, which detracts from an otherwise very nice model. e.g: click this celURL YMMV, but I have attached a short video of what I'm seeing from that viewpoin...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

the full length of the extendable boom with a damping spring is 32 meters in maximum, but in my model is 16 meters.. it's was made specially, because too long models not observable well in Celestia when we want to see it close... What you can do to make the close viewing easier, is to place a coupl...

Motherlode

Does anyone know who is running the Celestia Motherlode these days? I just wanted to get a message to them that the website is currently broken. It appears that although the website is up, clicking on any addon link gives a Database error. (Looks like website is UP, database is DOWN.) (First time I'...

"Hide my online status ..." no longer works

Just noticed that this feature no longer works on the forum....I don't know how long for because it's not something I've ever checked, but admins, you may want to investigate why this no longer works.

Yep, that's the one I found shortly afterwards (see my edit in last post). and it works well! Thanks for the reply though.

Re: Starship Avalon" from the movie, "Passengers"

Selden,

I just downloaded animv100beta3 but there is no sign of a Build -> Split Solid function in it.
Is there a later version than beta3?

EDIT: Forget about it ... I found a later dev build which has that feature.

Re: Interactive Resurgence Maps

Bad link to ZIP file Selden. :sad: This works: ZeusBattery_v09.zip Diff: ZeusPower_v09 --> ZeusBattery_v09 BTW. I suggest a darker background colour. This one turns out to be almost exactly the same colour as my mouse cursor in Celestia (YMMV), which means my cursor "disappears" whenever i...

Re: Starship Avalon" from the movie, "Passengers"

Frank, Although it's very easy to convert it into a CMOD, it is very difficult to do it so that it would look right/good in Celestia. Main problems are: 1/2 of the normals are reversed. No useful sub-meshes in the model. The only practical way to get this into Celestia in any decent form would be to...

Re: Disappearing threads

Thanks Croc,

I've tried to re-post from memory most of my comments from the deleted thread in the original thread here: https://celestia.space/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=17916&p=137552#p137552

Hope that not too much else was lost.

Re: New Celestia Website and new Forum design

I've consolidated and re-posted here most of the material I posted yesterday in the thread that was destroyed by the "backup" problem.... My personal conclusions from all of this information and from personal experience is that a dark background theme is not necessarily a bad choice for a ...

Disappearing threads

There seems to be something wrong with the forum. Several days ago, just after it was started, this thread announcing the new forum design just disappeared suddenly soon after it was started: https://celestia.space/forum/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=17916 So, I started a new thread to make some further ...

Re: New Celestia Website and new Forum design

Alexell , Nice job in general on the re-design. Just a couple of observations: 1. I suggest when viewport is reduced to phone size, it would be better to keep the "last post" link: lastpost.png , and lose the "pages" links: pages.png . On phones I think most people just want to ...

Re: Concerns about the impact of file system changes

I understand. You moved your asteroids project to the "Catalogs" folder??? I should clarify that when I said that "Asteroids, Comets, and Dwarf Planets belong in the "catalogs" folder ...", I only refer to the core set of objects which are always "distributed"...

Alexell: Is this forum welcoming new members?

A colleague is unable to be recognized as a full member, and messages to admin have been ignored for weeks. As the forum only appears to currently have ~ 1/2 a dozen active members, if the plan is to grow the popularity of the forum, then perhaps admin needs to be a bit more proactive in welcoming n...

Re: Concerns about the impact of file system changes

Alexell, I think you misunderstood my point. Perhaps the choice of the name "Aliens" was not a good idea and has misled you -- the name was chosen only to demonstrate the issue that it's load order now depends on it's lexical precedence in the data folder, whereas in 1.6.x it did not. You ...
