Re: Newest Version of Celestia 1.6

Thanks for all the help :( Especially Fridger :lol:
John, I do not play WOW or any other games.
Your replies are most condescending and not unexpected. You have become a small clique and you wonder why no one participates in this forum!
No need to reply, I already know what you have to say!

Re: Newest Version of Celestia 1.6

Plutonium Empire wanted to know how to install the latest celestia files. I suppose the answer you gave works for YOU! How about for us less than "brain dead" types? Obviously "brain dead Bob" is NOT so brain dead :) He got it to work. I downloaded and installed the RCO version, ...

Re: Really High-Res texture for earth?

I am going to give "Brain Dead" and Cartrite's instructions for the use of these tools a shot. A VERY brief shot! We all know that Bob is not really "Brain Dead" :) But when it comes to computer "stuff" I am probably catatonic :) I really enjoy Celestia! I do NOT enjoy ...

Re: Ran III Released

Finally managed to download the entire package :D A quick question: for this and other large add-ons, would it help to create a second installation of Celestia with all unnecessary files removed from the low, med, and hi res folders? Would it speed things up if Celestia did not have to load our Sola...

Re: Ran III Released

I have tried to download the hi-res pack 4 times now ( 3 is usually my limit! ) Twice the download was "complete" when it was not. The other times it just kept running not doing anything. I tried a download manager- would not work at all! Mozilla has a "resume" feature for downlo...

Re: Io Volcanic Plumes mark 2

OK so your latest is even better!
The new cmod helps a little but the add-on is too good to not use! (All plumes on)

What is that V426 OPH? Can we have it :D

Thanks!

Re: Io Volcanic Plumes mark 2

I have no idea how you folks do this kind of stuff, but this is BRILLIANT! I am keeping the original in case you change it! The night side is also very good. My only "complaint" is that, from a distance, this gives Io 2 or 3 large bright spots which protrude from the surface. Io looks more like an a...

Re: Does Celestia supports jpeg2000 lossless??

So- the ML is mostly crap and CM is the place to go??? I would like a Moon, Mars, Earth (your choice) texture. Maybe I would like some SciFi or a model of the Hubble or some of the nebulae. If not at the ML then where?? Celestial Matters has some beautiful add-ons, but it is too limited. Perhaps in ...

Where is Cassini?

I have been using Celestia for some time now. The latest version is terrific! I tried to find the Cassini spacecraft (the models folder has one) but could not. Right clicked on Saturn- nothing. Right clicked on Sol- nothing. Hit "enter" typed Cassini- nothing. What am I missing? Probably something s...
