Silver foil textures for use in spacecraft addons.

So with the release of my Europa Clipper add on, I noticed that NASA has started using only a normal map for their 3D model's texturing, and creating the colors through various surface effects in Blender and such. To get around this limitation in Celestia, I was able to take the foil normal map text...

Updated SpaceX Starship

Updates include emissive lighting to the windows, and an actual normal map which gives it some actual TPS tiles and a few other modifications. NOTE: This update replaces the previous version of my Starship add on. Meaning that no prior versions of Starship are required for it to work. Enjoy! :smile:

Orbital ATK Cygnus Enhanced

Finally, here is Orbital ATK's Cygnus Enhanced spacecraft. This will also mark the last of my spacecraft addons, which are created from the Google Arts & Culture/NASA ISS 3D model. :smile:

Re: Asteroid 231937

Regarding models appearing all black in cmodview, this is actually a phenomenon I have faced regularly since I created Progress. As for the models not showing in Celestia, I have also seen this occur with my Starship addon. Only the difference with Starship is that it is only occurring on the iOS ve...

Happy 20th Anniversary Celestia!!!

Though I was too young to know of Celestia early on, I am so glad to have discovered in its entirety. Shortly after Arecibo collapsed, I was feeling a bit down as I personally knew how significant the telescope was to the scientific community. At the same time, I was also looking for a way to make b...

Progress, Starship & Gironde

UPDATE REGARDING PROGRESS: I don’t think my progress addon needs to be updated after all from a lighting perspective. Turns out that simply activating eclipse shadows eliminated 99.9% of this overbrightness issue. So unless this is really becoming a problem for other users, I think I’m going to leav...

ROSCOSMOS Progress Cargo Spacecraft

Releasing this instead of the Cygnus or Cargo Dragon for the time being. Hopefully I can get those two to work properly in the near future. Note: Be on the lookout for an updated version of this spacecraft as I very likely will be changing the albedo, (or whatever it is called), so that it is not so...

Re: fun with Blender2.91

These look incredible!!! I especially like landmasses on both of them as they have a really nice surface texturing too them. Makes it feel all the more realistic to an actual exoplanet. Great job! :clap:

Error in .ssc file (Line 2): object name expected

So I was able to get a hold of a Windows device in order to continue developing add ons for Celestia. However, I'm now running into a new problem when creating my add ons. Using my SNC Dream Chaser .ssc file as a template for my future add ons, I am now ending up with none of my add ons loading in C...

The problem is not so much getting Anim8tor to run, but rather that the entire time it is running, I cannot click on any of the controls within the Anim8tor window. :sad: I'm going to hold off on making any further add ons for Celestia. I'll continue to share on the forum links to any 3d models I fi...

Re: Unable to get either .3ds or .cmod files to load more than one texture

I'm on MacOS 10.14.6 Mojave. When I run Anim8tor through Wine, all I get are endless graphical glitches, and a completely unresponsive Anim8tor user interface. :sad: I have no doubt that Anim8tor is fantastic, but I don't think it is the best way forward here. :think:
