Re: Tips for formulating help requests

Intel Core i7-2600 CPU - 16 GB RAM - 64-bit OS - Celestia ver 1.6.1 I’ve created a spacecraft .cel file with 82 spacecraft, and I’m having a problem with 6 of them. For reasons unknown to me the Cassini, Curiosity, Giotto, ISS, Juno, and Vostok 1 do not appear. When the craft is called, there is mov...

Forum "Last Post"

Just wondering - I opened up the Celestia Users forum and can't figure out why the first topic listed is dated 2013? Not only that, but the 2013 post is followed by a 2012 post, which is followed by a 2009 post, and naturally that is followed by a 2007 post before a 2017 post finally shows up. It wo...

spacecraft.ssc

I tried to install an updated version of the ISS. It instructed me to update the spacecraft.ssc in the data folder, trouble is, I have no spacecraft.ssc in my data folder. I running Celestia 1.6.1 - is there supposed to be a spacecraft.ssc or not? If so, where can I get the download?

cel & win 7

I transferred by .cel files from my XP computer over to my new Win 7. When I tried to open the .cel files I received the error message saying Windows needed to know what created the file. I tried to convince it to use Celestia.exe to open them, but evidently that wasn't what the system wanted to hea...

understanding ssc

What in the .ssc controls the view of a spacecraft? Sometimes the craft comes into view upside down, and people have asked my why I did it that way. It seems there are almost as many differences in the .ssc files as there are spacecraft. Liberty Bell 7 has lines of "RotationPeriod", "...

Re: tumors on objects

Selden, what I did was I downloaded the 1.6.1 version to a brand new flash drive, copied my old add-ons (extras, textures, data, and models), that to the best of my knowledge where working perfectly, to the flash drive and went from there. When I started the 1.6.1 "Navigation - Solar System Bro...

tumors on objects

In 1.6.1 (Navigation - Solar System Browser) Mercury, Metis, Adraster, and Thede, at that point I figured I went far enough, these bodies have tumors growing out of two sides. Has there been a correction for this problem that I missed??? Any solution would be appreciated.... eafbsd
