Lots of useful information including links to documents describing CEL and CELX scripting.

Cheers.

Re: This is really annoying...

Interesting, I just ran the same test terms as before and got the identical results as I first posted... Firefox 3 in Xubuntu LINUX, but that shouldn't matter. Who knows.
Oh well, I guess that there are more important things in life to be concerned about...

Cheers.

I don't frequent this forum too often, but I'm going to comment anyway... Usernames like )??(??(J?E)??)??( and SU(3)xSU(2)xU(1) are really annoying. I guess I'm supposed to disregard the "cutsy hacker style" junk and discern this users name is "Joe" and the other is... ??? C'mon ...

Re: What is Celestia for? Add-ons analysis

I don't understand all this "What is Celestia for?" analysis anyway... It's a tool. It can be whatever one needs, a game, a sim, a scientific application, etc. Modify the source code, write scripts, whatever... I've been working on an Add-On that models the Smoke Ring environment from Larr...

Re: Celestia for LINUX lagging behind?

@LordFerret, thx for the tips, they are appreciated. Currently, I'm messing around to see if could embed a Ruby or Python interpreter in Celestia. I'm running a quad core AMD CPU and interested in seeing if I can some multi-threading, multi-core action going... I'm not too impressed with LUA's corou...

Re: Preliminary thoughts for the next Unified UI

You were just saying: "IMO that's a decision the devs can make based on technical expertise and UI code integration concerns". So I find this funny because actually what do you think this thread is for? Isn't this forum a dev only forum? If such thread is open, perhaps it's because we nee...

Re: Preliminary thoughts for the next Unified UI

Well, let's look at something that I would consider an important element of "user friendliness": resource creation. While I've not been the most active participant in Celestia, I have had an interest in it since about 1.4.1 or thereabouts. I've read through a number of threads and at times...

Re: Preliminary thoughts for the next Unified UI

Frankly, I think deriving multiple "usage profiles" for Celestia is counter-productive in a sense. Why would an educator need different capabilities than a hobbyist or a professional? It depends on the application, not necessarily the person using it. When one starts to define an applicati...

Celestia for LINUX lagging behind?

I see that Celestia for Windows and Mac is currently 1.5.1 while for a LINUX install is at 1.4.1. I was simply curious why? Is there a lack of maintainer for the LINUX version?

Cheers.

Comprehensive .celx commands listing?

Is there anyway, or anywhere, to find or get a listing of the .celx commands that are usable in v1.6.x? I've been noodling around the scripting threads but information doesn't seem to be too well organized in this regards... I understand v1.6.x isn't officially released, but the code seems to be wel...

The Priviledged Planet.

I've noticed a number of Celestia users are interested in modeling "real world" world objects as add-ons or similar. For those of you interested in the potential for life on other worlds, and as a guide somewhat to modeling your own "life sustaining" worlds, I would encourage you...
