Re: New bugfix release 1.6.2-beta1

Since Celestia is now a sandboxed application, modification to the data folder inside the application bundle is disallowed (for example, adding additional plugins, textures), instead one should resort to the option "Change Configuration File" in the Celestia menu in menubar to change the ...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 for OS X available here

I'm not new to Celestia; I used it for years, and loved it! But I uninstalled Celestia from my Mac a few years ago. Recently, I updated my computer, and now it runs 10.15 Catalina with 64-bit software, with no major issues. Except that I can't get Celestia 1.7.0 to install! I've tried the instructi...

Re: Question about the splash screen

I think it should be allowed to be covered by other windows too, in fact the Mac version of Celestia has always been like that

Re: New bugfix release 1.6.2-beta1

I just tested the new version for Mac, it works fine :) First thing noticeable, the app settings are reset and the bookmarks lost (No biggies, but it should be mentioned somewhere, maybe when starting 1.6.2 the app should check if old 1.6.1 files exists and copy them to the new location ?) Small bu...

Re: Celestia Origin for Linux & Mac OS X

it should be trivial to write a shell script for macOS, however, different versions of Celestia needs to be handled differently (between 1.6.1 and oncoming 1.6.2, 1.7.0 etc). I didn't test 1.6.1 since 32bit applications don't run on my Mac now. I have fixed some bugs on 1.6.x branch on GitHub, so it...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

I really doubt if any individual would still be using jiangmin anti virus, probably not updated since like 2013... as far as I know, some Chinese gov departments still use it because of cooperation earlier.

Re: Is Celestia available for IPAD pro ios 12 ?

I think it's still easier to the revamp the render engine to support mobile platforms(OpenGL ES), which is ongoing in the Celestia git repo. I have a personal project compiling the Celestia source files on the Mac and created shim with Objective-C which the Mac UI can just can call and display the s...

Re: Is Celestia available for IPAD pro ios 12 ?

Well, the main issue stopping this from happening has to do with the render engine, currently Celestia only runs on OpenGL, whilst iOS/Android supports only OpenGLES, Metal, Vulkan etc.

An experimental native macOS Celestia

Hi, everyone. I've been working on an experimental version of Celestia on macOS modeled after the original version but rewritten. Most of the functions have been implemented, but its's still very buggy. the moon textures aren't showing etc. Not ready to share the source code yet, but I feel like if ...
