Re: 1.3.1 prerelease 5 binaries for Windows

I guess I am a little late with this but... each pre-release since the last full version seems to run more slowly on my system. I have integrated graphics, BUT 1.2.4 and 1.2.5 ran fairly well. The latest releases run very slowly/jerkily at full screen. Windowed they are not too bad. The previous ver...

Re: [off topic]Life in other planets...

The arrogance of Humans- to believe that we are so special as to be the only "intelligent" life in our universe of BILLIONS of stars and planets!

Add-ons

This part of the forum would be a great idea- IF you did not allow replies (like mine!) Just put in links to add-ons! No matter whose or how good, let the people decide! Fridger does great work, there should be a link here, but his complaints about not being included or anyone elses complaints are n...

Re: Purpose of this forum

This is a great idea :)

But PLEASE, PLEASE post read-me files so that those of us who are less
computer literate will know how to use them! It drives me crazy to download some really cool addition and then not be able to use it!

Thanks all!

Re: Duniverse v1.4

I thought Lynch's version was an "Abomination" :)
The first TV series, in my opinion, was much truer to the book. If you are a Sci-Fi fan it is worth watching.

Rass

Like Psykotik, I too am not a frequent participant. I think I am also a bit older than most of the members :) Rass, for whatever reasons, do not give up something you love to do! You are an artist, with Celestia as your medium. If you enjoyed this forum and this program as much as it seemed, you wil...

Re: Rosetta Nebula

Rassilon, I thank you for your reply :) I have looked at Celestial Visions, but there does not seem to be any downloads of your work. I have tried the shatters link but have not been able to connect in the past couple of days. Will all of your creations be available, eventually, at Celestial Visions...

Nebulas

So, Rass (if I may) will you post other nebulae? Without the imaginary planets! I only have a modem and video does not support dds. Seems that you could provide both types of files and we could choose what we could use!
Thanks much! :)

Brown Dwarf

So.... where do I find the Brown Dwarf?? I have copied the files and edited the .ssc file for the jpg. How do I get to the Brown Dwarf Star??
Maybe you all know which stars are brown dwarfs, but I do not!
Thanks!

shuttle color

Thank you, bh, for the file. No need to be sorry :) You are probably right about the graphics card- I have integrated graphics :( and have seen other color differences with Celestia textures. Your models still look great! Selden- I turned ambient light off and the shuttle is---white!! Still white wh...

Columbia

I have the shuttle Columbia from bh. However, it is mostly gray! Can I make it white? Can I move it away from Hubble?
Please, for us "dummies", include a read me on how to use the file you create.
bh- great looking model :D maybe you could "tweak" the Hubble? the ISS?
