ESA ExoMars Rover, "Rosalind Franklin."

A future addition to the family of roving Mars rovers, Rosalind Franklin is one of three key pieces in the ESA/ROSCOSMOS ExoMars mission triangle. With the other two pieces being the ROSCOSMOS Mars lander, which will bring the rover down to the surface, as well as the already active TGO, or Trace Ga...

NASA Mars Polar Lander

Had it not crashed, this lander would have investigated both the soil, and climate of Planum Australe located on Mars. Though here at least, you can view the lander in the way it would have looked upon successfully touching down on the Martian surface. :smile:


Enjoy!

Cargo Dragon Update

Minor update which tries to address the harsh lighting seam which is visible on the right side of the capsule. This version also completely replaces the previous version of my Cargo Dragon addon. Meaning that no prior versions of it are required for it to work. :smile:

Re: Simulating derelict spacecraft in Celestia

I think the idea to do something like this could be interesting. The question I have is unlike stars, spacecraft generally have their own unique designs which differ from one another. So if we were to say simulate certain defunct satellites, from my understanding we would either need to have a very ...

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:

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...
