Re: Interactive positioning of SSC objects.

So... once this is fully into Celestia, I could in theory (and with some time for development for models, and the innards of Celestia orbits and rotations and such) ... ... Load up ElChristou's Atlantis... open the bay doors, close them, perform RCS burns, and even rotate to dock with ISS? All from ...

Just to add a note... Photoshop should not be any reason to stick to windows!

Re: Screen shot & Vid capture repository?

I found the thread but it seems like such a small cross section... Maybe even if we could just make a listing of all the links to sites that the users are keeping their works on? I hope that sometime after I can finally figure out textures I can get some pics up ;) yes El Christou... I'm *still* wor...

Screen shot & Vid capture repository?

I was wondering if anyone knows of, administers, or has thought of putting together a central (or at least widely advertised through these forums) screen and vid cap repository? Something where all of us users could put up the stuff we're doing in Celestia? I'd love to see some of these videos and l...

Ultimate Celestia setup?

So I'm curious to know what everyone's IDEAL Celestia install has added to it, or what mods you've done.

What is your ideal setup for a realistic setting?
What is your ideal setup for a fictional setting?

What do you consider a "must have" add-on?

Re: Linux or Windows?

I'm setting up a Debian machine to run Celestia on... I'll let folks know if I get any kind of hard testing data on the speed comparisons... Right now I can't get it working properly with Vista RC1 but I'm trying that too so I can compare on all platforms (cept mac cause they suck!!! j/k... I don't ...

Re: current ISS model

So what is the ISS going to be like after STS-116 is finished their work on it? Anyone got that model yet? I'd love to load that up with Elchristou's Atlantis (renamed Discovery) and make a lil diorama.

Re: The splash screen font sucks !

Well, I think the old star map is a GREAT characteristic of the splash screen and site. I mean, Celestia in essence, is a more modern star map system. Am I the only one that sees that? I like the bottom spash in that X2 jpl Elchristou! If you release that, please send me a copy or post it here so I ...

Re: What do you do when you're not here?

I wouldn't know. All I do know is that another one of the guys I work with also plays with Orbiter alot. We both like both programs... but officially I don't think there's any word on it :)

Re: Buran 3D models

Appears the BDF is a format for a program mentioned on the page. I've attempted to contact the webmaster to see if there is any explanation or other information available. I found a .3ds model for sale ($320.00) on a website... and it looks like it's one of these. All I can figure is that the model ...

Re: The splash screen font sucks !

I am using this Fridger version as well by Elchristou. I'm quickly becoming a voracious Elchristou fan!! One thing I'd love to see in a new version of Celestia, would be a way to possibly "randomize" splash screens. For instance a folder full of PNG files (splash_*.png for example) would be the choi...

I guess I should answer my own thread eh? I work at JPL, as a Communications Chief on the Deep Space Network. The thing that talks to Voyager still, as well as anything else beyond the moon (and a few closer things as well)... I typically read through these forums and play with Celestia during the d...

Re: Buran 3D models

The only ones that are there are the T-4 supersonic place for air launching rockets. It is in a BDF format, but I think this can be converted by some 3d programs?

NONE of the Buran models are there, all are "file not found"

:(

Elchristou, I assume you got my PM and you don't have anything against me playing with your model a bit for personal entertainment?

Re: 2 Shuttles brings me something odd...

Whatever is built into this DELL machine. It's really not anything special at all. I will try this setup again later on my home machine, one of which has a nVidia 7600 256MB Integrated, the other has a ATI 1600 512MB PCIe. I'll see if that clears it up. I'm just playing with this here at work killin...

Re: 2 Shuttles brings me something odd...

Even if I move the models closer together and point them in the same direction. Seems the visibility bubble is centered around Atlantis. http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q5/elecmohwk/Atlantis_Discovery_Error_150_002.jpg http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q5/elecmohwk/Atlantis_Discovery_Error_150_0...
