Re: Very old nightsky

This discussion suggests a question. If the radiation in any form (ie. light or energy in any form) which travels a the speed of light or a fraction of it is just reaching us now, it suggests that the universe is expanding at a rate that is higher than the speed of light. Now, we know that this is n...

Re: cmodview: 3D mesh file utility for Celestia

Chris, Look at how nicely these J-antennas cast their shadows on the multi-faceted surface of the vostok1.cmod file. I was able to reproduce what appears to be diffraction rings apparent in Fenerit's example. These artefacts appear on all .3ds files viewed with cmodview. For computer equipment, plea...

http://img148.imageshack.us/img148/8472/cmodview.th.jpg This is cmod's view representation of the underside of body.cmod from JRB_Freedom7/models in my extras folder. The only setting changed from the default values in cmodview is in the render style menu where I have checked the shadows option. My...

Re: Lua Edu Tools v1.2 beta

Vincent, Thank you very much for looking so quickly into this glitch and coming up with the solution. You are the man! That means that I have more time to learn how to code in lua. I was trying to figure out why the bottom of the "nextButton" box would not come up with a change in image. Y...

Re: Lua Edu Tools v1.2 beta

Hi Vincent I have found a small problem with the lua edu tools. If you declare and install two images for the same object in infoImage.lua that are not the same vertical size (ie.: 256 x 256 and 256 x 512) you will get a strange artefact where the image switching buttons are located when you select ...

It works well on my system which includes Windows XP with all updates, Nvidia GeForce 8800 GT graphics card with the most recent software drivers. I run the program on a 1280 x 768 screen. My Celestia ver...

Re: New "plug-in" for Celestia

Thank you all for the positive responses. Vincent, I opted for the separate file for the "picture_obj.lua" where I can organize everything neatly and it works very nicely. Fortunately or unfortunately, I can't reproduce the program faillure for the time being but I will keep an eye on it a...

Re: New "plug-in" for Celestia

Cham, thank you for the welcome and the answer. The available method works as it is. It's just that I was wondering if it would make it any easier. The picture is 512 x 512. Although it does not show it, the image you see in the example was superimposed on a black background of 512 x 512. By the way...

Re: New "plug-in" for Celestia

Hi Cham, Vincent and anyone who has ever contributed to making this program what it is and also all those who follow its development on a regular basis. I have been using it and have been reading postings to this forum for quite a while but only recently registered. After downloading the lua_plugins...
