Re: New Mercury place names

Thanks. I'm surprised they haven't yet named the two new big rayed craters except for names like 'North Giant Crater' and 'South Giant Crater' for reference with radar studies like here: http://www331.jpl.nasa.gov/group8/mercvla.html I went to Earth, zoomed in on Mercury with the ambient level up an...

MNG and APNG are two formats. There are some examples of APNG images at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/APNG. It works in the new Firefox and Opera browsers and displays the first frame in IE and Safari.

Re: Celestia Venus Upside down? or is it me?

Yeah, that picture shows the hemisphere that Maxwell Montes is not on. Compare the orientation of the Y feature of the clouds to Celestia. The Y opens towards the direction of rotation.

Re: Ariel, Miranda and Titania by Uranus-shine

I use Steve Alber's Ariel map that incorporates the planetshine. I followed Voyager 2 by in 1986 with SVN Celestia and could see the big white spot. 8O

I also made a new lok texture to not cover that area.

Re: 150 unresolved externals

Re: 150 unresolved externals

I made my paths the same as your VC++ 2008 ones and still get the same 26 unresolved externals. Guess something is missing. :?

Re: 150 unresolved externals

Thanks! I installed the 2005 SDK and followed your instructions in the other post plus changed adxres.h to Windows.h because I didn't find the first one. There wasn't a mfc subdirectory. I'm not sure which SDK you installed but I have the one found here and it works fine. The file AFXRES.h is found...

Re: best way to store sky background

The stars are individual objects you can go to. They are rendered with some kind of culling mechanism, either a BSP or octree. Some others here would know.
