Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Yes, I think you're starting to catch my vision a bit. Wonderful! By expanding the orbits of the planets around their stars sufficiently (as well as the size of the planets, hopefully - as the Lua Tools do), we could see them out on the scale of the local star cluster which would reveal the relative...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Ok. Thanks for showing me a bit of how this might look. I'm not as yet sure how that would help visualise the orbits of planets of neighbouring star systems relative to each other. It seems to be just another way to highlight the planets (beyond, having their names visible which might disappear toge...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

There aren't currently any active Lua developers. However, the Lua Edu Tools/Lua Universal Tools already has a "Magnification" function that magnifies the planets of the Solar System. Maybe this could be extended to do what you're wanting. Thanks! I've installed those and yes, that's very...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Wonderful! I'll try to elaborate, but please ask any specific questions I haven't explained &/or feel free to take this idea and develop it in your own way. Preamble: I play a lot of space games and it kind of annoys me how 2D and unrealistic in terms of scale they all are. Surely people know th...

Feature Request?

Sorry if this isn't the place to do it (I couldn't find a better option), but I have a feature request. Would it be possible to have a 'puff factor' multiplier (each with an associated slider in the view options) for: - star size (slider range: 1x - ~500x) - planet size (slider range: 1x - ~10000x) ...
