You have to click on "ViDiBa" and check the boxes to make asteroids and comets visible. Apparently the "Objects" checkboxes for asteroids and comets in "View Options" don't work.

Also, I've merged your post into the Celestia Origin thread.

Re: What the heck happened to celestiamotherlode.net?

Doesn't work. The Celestia Motherlode is online, but I can't download anything. I just tried downloading a file from the Motherlode and it worked fine for me. I read the topics on this forum about misusing Celestia by sci-fi fans, Those are old threads. You're welcome to create any fictional addons...

The GitHub repository's starnames.dat should already have all variable star designations in the Hipparcos and Tycho catalogs.

Re: IC 1101

Eric Nelson, please don't necropost. You've already been warned about this. (Yes, I realize the thread was already necro'd by Joey P. in 2019, but that doesn't mean you should do it again.)

The green squares are nebula labels. They're visible because the box in the third column next to "Nebulae" is checked.

The Oort Cloud is invisible by default. To see it, you need to click on "Set Addon" and select "Oort Cloud". Also keep in mind that you need to be far from the Sun (more than a light-year) to see the Oort Cloud.

Re: Project Sisyphus - Texturing/painting every exoplanet known

HD 209458 b ("Osiris") Apparently no one has ever made a texture addon for the classic hot Jupiter. Now there is one. No attempt has been made to render the planet's evaporating atmosphere, since it wouldn't really be visible (unlike with Kepler-1520b ). Planet texture is my own work, sta...

Re: How do you add more stellar classes in Celestia?

Droopy Angora, reviving a 2 year old thread is necroposting, which is discouraged here. I'm not sure what star classes you're suggesting should/will be added, but spectral classes Y and WO have already been added, and quark stars (which you mention) can just be defined as neutron stars.

The planet count is the total number of planets in the catalog, not just those added in the latest release.

Re: Vision's Addons

Now not to get into anything critical. but 1 thing I did when I installed the Ran addon was increase the distance 1000 fold (due to the render distance limit of stars and planets being like 10 Mly I believe) so therefore the Rootax "stars" (HIP 317170 and HIP 317171) are 5.8 Mly from Sol ...

Re: SevenSpheres' Addons

Bugfix to epimetheus-janus.zip uploaded, fixing the orbits rendering with the wrong inclination in default (non-Origin) Celestia. Thanks to trappistplanets for making me aware of this issue.
