Re: Problem with a 3DS model

Thanks for your help Bob. I have found a solution: - conversion of 3ds model in cmod model thanks to the tool "3ds2cmodv3-2" - I noticed some opacity parameters set to 0 instead of 1 in the cmod file (not seen in 3ds software?) => CORRECTED - I modify some pieces with Blender (seen in soli...

Re: Problem with a 3DS model

Would it be possible that someone tests my 3ds model to know if it is due to an hardware limitation or a problem with the 3ds conversion into celestia?
Do you know some interesting 3D freeware to use?

Re: Add a fixed image in Celestia screen

But IMO the best solution is that you add your voice to our ones, asking as we are doing for Vincent's patch (sound and images using cel scripts) merging in Celestia 1.6. :twisted: My little cent. Bye Andrea :D I agree with you... I vote for an integration of this functionality in Celestia 1.6 ! It...

Re: Add a fixed image in Celestia screen

If I understand well, the patch "celestia_win32_1.4.1_patch3" allows to display a fixed image thanks to the cel function overlay. That's exactly what I need !! But this *.cel script doesn't work with celestia 1.5.1 (svn 1.6.0), right? Is it possible to simply define or add an overlay funct...

Re: CELX command to display an arrow?

[/quote] It sounds like the problem is with your definition for GB2 in the ssc file. Could you cut and paste that into a forum post? --Chris[/quote] Do you mean in a new post or in this one? Otherwise, the gb2.ssc file is already pasted in the previous message. I paste it again hereafter. ----------...

Re: CELX command to display an arrow?

Ok ! sorry for this last question... It's obvious. I have found two executables WIN32 on the website of Cartrite and Phoenix. I have just to replace the celestia.exe file and it should work.
