Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Perseverance rover. Made this today in a few hours. Model is from here . I'm not entirely sure the texturing is 100% correct, but as far as I can tell it looks the same as the original model. No detailed Mars surface textures included, at least not yet. Download: perseverance.zip perseverance1.png p...

Re: Celestia 1.6.2 is out

However, since logging on today I notice that the center function no longer works. You can choose an object as usual, but then pressing "C" or using the "Center" dialog button no longer does anything. So let's say I choose Proxima Centauri and then hit "G" to go there....

If this is meant to be a bug report, you can change the render path to OpenGL 2.0 (which is the default) by pressing Ctrl+V a few times.

Re: New Sagittarius A* Stars

There is just 1 problem which is the textures don't work, I will seek help with fixing this and when I do fix it I will release that. But for now you just get the version with no textures, which means all you get is some bright white cue balls whizzing around a black hole. Looking at Celestia's log...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

For 1.7.0 you have to use Bintree releases and it does not support fisheye projection. It does support fisheye projection, as stated in the threads I linked. onetwothree wrote: Just a few minutes ago @markerz merged his branch to master.

Re: Request for WR 104 , OGLE-2016-BLG-1928, and Blue Ring Planetary Nebula

IIRC, OGLE-2016-BLG-1928 can't be accurately rendered in Celestia since its distance is unknown.

For WR 104 and the Blue Ring Nebula, I think Gurren was making those? Otherwise, as said above, Luke is the nebula expert.

This doesn't need the Lua Tools.

is there somthing about the Lua tools that i should get them? and how does Lua Tools relate to my crashing issue Nevermind Lua Tools, do this: Try removing all dsc addons from your extras folder, then adding them back one by one to see which one causes the crash.

That's because the addon relies LET, just look at the screenshot.

Re: clicking a emptey part of space randomly crashes celestia

This happened to me once; I was able to fix it by removing a test dsc file where I was trying to define a globular cluster using a CustomTemplate. So...make sure you don't have any globulars defined using CustomTemplates, I guess?

Re: MacOs Celestia 1.6.2b(3) not running a majority of add-on's

Anyways, yes, I made sure that the addon was in the correct folder. Unless I'm mistaken and the extragalactic stars addon should be in, "extras," rather than, "extras-standard." Generally all addons should be in "extras", but I don't see anything wrong with your setup....

Re: MacOs Celestia 1.6.2b(3) not running a majority of add-on's

The first screenshot is the same as before, you're still missing the model and texture. Did you make sure you have them in the right place?
I don't see anything wrong with the second screenshot. My pulsar planets addon doesn't define custom textures for the pulsars.
