Re: Has anyone seen this yet?

The "terrain scale" would really be a useful feature impliment to Celestia. I enjoyed GeoPlayer™ Mars Demo, simple & fast, I can only imagine what the fullversion would cost $?, Impressive Earth Gallery:: http://www.geofusion.com/gallery.html can someone borrow me 8k USD$ =), The Source code isnt fr...

Re: 64k Blue Marble

Hi ANDREA, Try and move the "Earth 64k JPG" Folder to the root of "hires or medres folder", that should fix it, your .ctx seems right, should be like.. VirtualTexture { ImageDirectory "earth64k JPG" BaseSplit 0 TileSize 1024 TileType "jpg" } Please Wait.. Loading 46kb .jpg Image.. % http://milad.50f...

danielj >> maybe you have set the virtual textures wrong or used another method before, you dont need to use the "extras" folder or use "alternative textures" in order to use diffrent virtual textures at the same time, The reason that its better to use the "extras" folder is because it makes it easi...

Re: Looking for a 16k specmap,but not in the form of alt tex

Hi, you should defenitly give "Virtual Textures" a shot, that way you can use alot of huge hires textures at the same time, This is one of my favorite spec maps, I believe that it was made by "Buzz" it covers all the rivers, very well detailed. its a 32k virtual textures in 512 pixel wide dds format...

Re: Nighttexture 16k is much heavier than Nighttexture 8k?

The slowdowns depends on What graphic card you use and how much memory it has and also the filetype of the texture, huge 16k-32k single .jpg and .png textures are much demanding and slows down most systems. if I remember right you have a FX 5700 with 128mb onboard memory. you are already using a sin...

Hi Don, I could not find any line but the "alt-texture" line when looking at the "Celetia Now Has Cloud Shadows" thread. I will search more for just "cloud shadows" to see what I can find on this forum, tnx. http://www.celestiaproject.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3980&postdays=0&postorder=asc&a...

Re: What is the clouds shadows command ?

it would be nice if we could (load)enable/disable the overlay texture from the celestia menu or keyboard shortcuts, That way we could add the line: "OverlayTexture "Earth_Cloud_Shadows_8k.dds" to the reguallar earth in solarsys.ssc and enable/disable the shadows when needed on-fly. insted of adding ...

Re: Modify "Sun" Flare/Atmosphere?..etc.

bh >> I totally agree, a dynamic flare would defenitly look good and spice up celestia a bit. Like flight sims as you said the flares should look very bright/dazzling when you look directly at it and fade away when you change view. Lens flare is not needed then but would be nice as a extra option. -...
