If I may here, WHAT the Hell is your problem? Celestia is already an amazing space simulator, and it has been since it was first...

Using a joystick and a Nostromo N52, you can somewhat fly around, but theres no way to render an...

Re: Possible joystick bug and a request

Possible joystick bug and a request

Re: Help cannot replace Sol texture

After updating to 1.5, I too am now experiencing a strange spherical darkness at the center of the sun, the size of which changes depending on which angle you look at it from. I'm using Runar's "A portrait of our sun" add-on. I want to keep the add-on. What is going on? What should I do? It worked ...

Re: The Feature Requests Collecting Thread

Someone else also mentioned this, but goto command is almost instant. Maybee a way to select the speed for it? Rather than...

Re: Question about clouds

What I am trying to do is is make 2 sets of clouds for jupiter, one turning one way, the other turning the oposite direction to give it kind of a stormy effect. I know its probably not realistic or accurate, but hey, it would look nice! Plus im having alot of fun learning how to do this stuff! My re...
