Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated August 30, 2018

I open a parenthesis; sorry if a bit off topic: Yesterday I private messaged Fenerit if he could send me the Helene and Telesto models. I haven't had any response yet, though. I see this post just now, but I never received an email alert for that PM, nor I find that PM now inside my account. Sorry, ...

Re: Anyone have the Mac Disk Image for cmodview?

Thanks.

P.S.
Mind that the suggestion of mine didn't intend to overrule this site. I'm not a MAC user so I don't have the CMODviewer for MAC nor the Perl script for world's capitals.

Re: Anyone have the Mac Disk Image for cmodview?

I would suggest you to ask for your requests on CM:

P.S.
How I do quote now? I do not find the button neither within the advanced editor. I'm missing something?

Re: Celestial Matters forum still down

I don't think it is a CM issue, must be an ibiblio issue. This server is the same of Motherlode. Same problems on both AFAIK.

Re: Is there a way to setup a "landscape" like in stellarium?

You should build a 3D landscape through a 3D modeler and then put it on the ground of your observing site by using a .SSC. There are several free 3D modelers which could make all you need: grass, trees, lakes, mountains and so on.

Re: Fading a model

I recall a model could be made translucent by assigning a PNG with transparent canvas upon the CMOD model set with opacity 1. But I don't recall whether assigning a PNG with transparent canvas upon the CMOD set with opacity 0 could made the model translucent in converse way: let say, the model is op...

Re: Gravitational waves from NGC 4993

The image within Wiki page shows the galaxy as it seen from Earth; that is: correctly oriented, neither upside-down refracted nor left-right mirror reflected. So the coordinates of the source should be tuneable since the galaxy RA Dec. :spy:

Re: "Data" to "No Data" Transition Lines on Charon Mesh [Need Help]

Memory usage should be displayed on the info bar: doesn't it increase along with subdivisions? Blender does use all RAM memory available on system: possibly your issues concerns the GPU (on board?). BTW, to remove those lines couldn't be matter of subdivisions/smoothing, but a more simple "make...

Re: "Data" to "No Data" Transition Lines on Charon Mesh [Need Help]

It should be:
"Edit mode" -> Mesh -> Edges -> Subdivide
do it a bunch of times. The increases in edges/vertex count is shown within the status ba close to the program's icon. Anyhow, wait for John reply: he is the "Blender guru" here.

Re: [Request] Normal Map Conversion

I recall that CMOD model is very coarse and without normal/tangent because just the ridge was sculpted from a spherical mesh with a Iapetus surface texure applied upon it. That model is not scientific at all, I made that just to show the 3D ridge feature because no Iapetus's normal maps were availab...

Re: CMOD models and normal maps

Maybe the UV-map is applied upon triangles and not upon quads. Do try to re-mesh the CM models to quads, either on Anim8tor or Blender and then appliyng the texture.

Re: CELESTIA IN THE FUTURE

This discussion recall to me the attempts done by the trueSpace folks to develop the program through the plugin API and their fault to get Micro$oft (buyer and quitter of tS) releasing the source code for free; with the difference that in Celestia's case the source is freely available.
