Converting IAU Nomenclature to .ssc

Hello, is there a way to convert IAU nomenclature to .ssc location files? The outdated .ssc locations were outdated, probably in 2008 or 2011, so I need to find a way to convert them to .ssc. I can try using XML as a base but I don't know how to convert that too.

Re: Has anyone have a archive of Celestia-1.7.0?

Due to the amount of changes in Celestia 1.7.0, the binaries need to be used with the files from GitHub rather than the files included with Celestia 1.6.x. This specific problem is due to 1.7.0 replacing .txf fonts with .ttf fonts. Also, there is a glitch where the ring shadows aren't rendered prop...

Re: Has anyone have a archive of Celestia-1.7.0?

Thank you! Maybe next time host a website containing those files so I don't have to come here until the files get expired.

Added after 10 minutes 23 seconds:
Also, why are the names/labels not rendered here? Is this some error or I forgot to enable something? I am using the Qt version.

Re: Has anyone have a archive of Celestia-1.7.0?

The code execution cannot proceed because celestia.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.
Why does it do that? I just want to see the new features Celestia 1.7.0 has!

Re: Has anyone have a archive of Celestia-1.7.0?

How do I download the current builds? Do I need to compile them myself, because I'm not an expert on compiling programs. I also use Windows.

Has anyone have a archive of Celestia-1.7.0?

Hello, since I've heard that Alexell (the creator of Celestia 1.7.0) has left Celestia and shut down the website hosting Celestia version 1.7.0. I, however, managed to get it before the website shut down, but I don't know where the files were originally named.

Re: Saturn texture with Cassini data?

Wow, that looks so amazing! I have a LOT of questions: #1: What program did you use to make them? #2: Where can I get the data? #3: How long did that take to compile the map? Also, can you try to compile a map similar to Bjorn Jonsson that he made recently with Cassini images from 2013-06-27? Heres ...

Re: Saturn texture with Cassini data?

Where's the gray one? The one without the Saturn texture overlaid on it? I also remember seeing it at a polar projection.

Saturn texture with Cassini data?

Hello, I remember seeing a post made by John van Vliet or someone else, probably in forum.celestialmatters.org, and it was about them making a north polar map of Saturn from real Cassini data (even with the hexagon storm! I don't know what program they used, maybe USGS's ISIS .), then converting it ...

Like I said: R.I.P. :eek:
R.I.P. for now, they claimed they will enable it again, but probably after a week or few. I don't know if the person who made the website is still active.

When I go there, it redirects me to a website dedicated into "digital archiving" and North Carolina stuff. I really don't know what happened to it recently, but let's hope it comes up again. I kinda think that the website was hacked by someone, or the domain was expired so its website host...

Implementing heightmaps into Celestia: Is it possible?

Hello, is it possible to implement heightmaps/Displacement mapping into Celestia, rather than Celestia.sci? If it's possible to implement it here in Celestia.sci, then I can implement it in Celestia (if I have enough skill). Unfortunately, I don't have that much skill on modifying Celestia's source ...

Spice spacecraft rotation model not working

Hello, I managed to get Voyager 1's SPICE kernels and it actually worked, except for the rotation model. When I go near it, it looks stretched and flashes whenever I move the camera or when the time period of the rotation model ends. It also doesn't "rotate," it just stays there in a fixed...

Re: What happened with the Ganymede 2k-4k surface texture map?

I saw that the map had slight differences to Bjorn Jonsson's, and it looks ok to me. We'll never know what the original map looked like and why it was deleted.
