Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Some NASA website templates are difficult to convert with the usual 3D software. Why not use excellent Toutatis' model ? https://celestia.space/forum/viewtopic.php?p=140519#p140519 :hi: This model is better then NASA 3D source.

Re: Alexell's Celestia 1.7 version should remain downloadable

In my opinion Alexell's Celestia 1.7 version should remain downloadable. https://celestia.alexell.ru//1.7.0/x64/ I'm using it, and it is perfect for me. Because I use extensive 3D cmod buildings (several hundreds of megabytes) on some planetary surfaces, I cannot run Celestia 1.6 anymore, I need a ...

vesta-topo8k is the texture AltSurface "topography" which corresponds to it AltSurface "Topography" "Sol/4 Vesta" { Texture "vesta-topo8k.jpg" } :hi: Ups, my mistake. Long=0 is in the center. Sorry :oops: Source: https://astrogeology.usgs.gov/search/map/Vesta...

Re: Convert 3d file into cmod with texture

Thank you very much for you answer! The model looks fine! However I would like to ask you if the mesh model you use to create this cmod file is the same as I suggested, because that 3d model is full of details! Regars! Alejandro Yes, this is model from your suggestion https://nasa3d.arc.nasa.gov/de...

It's a shame not to have orbital data for the entire mission. Hopefully someday.

Here is orbital data for Vikings orbiters
