Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

had an experience to build a such kind of trajectories before Origin start to use it... So I did not understand the previous message. I thought you discovered this data for the first time. And they have revised the data in 19 September... Data is updated frequently. But this will not affect the gen...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

but see in pic below that I found this today in night at HORIZONS for Hayabusa 2... and that is great... :smile: :smile: :smile: I think that Mr. Jon.D.Giorgini visit our forum sometimes.... What? Data for Hayabusa 2 has long been there. Otherwise, how could I build a trajectory for the Origin? How...

Yes, I already know. A significant number of objects have already accumulated, which I will rename in the next release.

Re: 2I/Borisov - first interstellar comet

The comet has been officially assigned an interstellar object index! I updated the trajectory and refined the current size estimate.

Important message for Linux and MacOS users.

Try installing the Celestia Origin v.9 on your systems without Wine, using script from attachment. Report the OS version and installation results. Than more information, that better. Thank you for any help. :smile:

At the moment, I'm based only on version 1.6.1. I will focus on later ones after the official release.

Re: Celestia Origin for Linux & Mac OS X

Indeed. But it's some strange old format. I'll start to experimenting with Arch Linux format, and ask page admin to post packages mainained by onetwothree. Yes, it is necessary. Because otherwise You have to mess with existing data, which, at least on most Linux distros, will conflicts with package...

Re: Celestia Origin for Linux & Mac OS X

there is no "official GNU/Linux builds", that autopackage file referenced on the site is just for quick evaluation, and I doubt that it will work because of the way autopackage files are created. The usual way for GNU/Linux or *BSD users to get an application is to install it from their O...

Can't it be altered via REPLACE or MODIFY disposition in coresponding .ssc, .stc or .dsc files? Why duplicate the objects code? I am not at all in favor of using the "Modify" and "Replace" functions where I can get by without it. In any case, these functions do not solve all the...

Re: Celestia Origin for Linux & Mac OS X

I always usedCelestia on (Arch) Linux and never see other version than 1.6.1. I was very surprised seeing 1.5 as last official build for Linux. For me surprise is opposite.:biggrin: So need to upload version 1.6.1 to the official website. This will solve many problems. The second surprise was to se...

Celestia Origin for Linux & Mac OS X

Dear community. I already repeatedly get questions related to the work of "Celestia Origin" in the Linux family systems. It is known for certain that with the help of Wine, the collection starts up without problems, but not everyone is happy with this approach. There are two obstacles to o...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated August 30, 2019

Well, if ever you'll want to make more nebulae in future releases of Celestia, aside from the Lemon Slice, perhaps the Veil Nebula, the Tarantula Nebula and several other nebulae ought to be included. And improvements in the design of other nebulae can be included as well. In addition, perhaps a mo...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated August 30, 2019

1. IC 3568/Lemon Slice Nebula. It has a relatively simple shape and should be easy to do. Now nebulae are not included in our plans. 2. The texture of Vesta needs to be seriously updated. Overall the color is not correct and should be a little more brownish. I believe FarGetaNix made one a while ba...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated August 30, 2019

I wanted to take some screenshots of certain nebulae so I enabled the "Nebulae" addons, and even my view options has "Nebulae" enabled. But when I came to the Nebula itself, I see nothing. Is this a bug or did I fail to do something to make it visible? Very strange. I have not c...
