Celestia pics & videos

Is there any chance that the topics "Celestia pics & videos" can be split away from "Celestia Users" to a seperate forum of their own?

Re: Win32 Executable from SVN

Guillermo,

Just checked with a standard 1.6.0 download with no addons or extras doesn't do this it would appear to me that a sun addon is causing the problem.

Re: Win32 Executable from SVN

Hi Guillermo,
Sorry 4880 was a mistake should have read 4890, further investigation I've found it's a combination of addons together with your svn 4898 and 4903 which are causing the other problems.

Re: Win32 Executable from SVN

Guillermo,

Appreciate your SVN I seem to have a problem when viewing the orbits of the planets and asteroids.
1. Pluto appears as a planet not the dwarf as in 1.6.0
2. Pluto's orbit in svn 4880 is broken and in 4903 is a strange shape, Ive eliminated any extras causing problems.

Hi Bob,
Fenerit hasn't changed anything regarding Helene, it is a minormoon according to the minormoons datafile and therefore would not appear when right clicking on Saturn

Re: V1.6 cel script from 1.5.1 not all working

Hi elbertdee,

I copied your script shown the most obivious thing missing are the { } at the start and finish of the script, I guess you may have just left them off as you should have got an error message.
With the brackets the script seems to run OK in the latest SVN4645 version I have

Selden looking at the various planetary ring systems the least developed is Jupiter's, depending on which textures one look's at 2 that I'm aware putting the names to them doesn't really match. Saturn's new names are ok but fitting them so they are viewable is not easy, possible solution would perha...
