Re: Charon 2k texture.Where or when?

Actually the US congress recently cut New Horizons' budget by 50%... :roll: I don't think it'll ever actually get off the ground. :( Okay, so I'll just have to wait until 2024 then... :( That's okay, I *might* still be alive, and I'll certainly still have an interest in seeing the moon. :lol: Thank...

Re: Charon 2k texture.Where or when?

Daniel, Have been unable to find good Charon texture. It seems that even the Hubble telescope can get only poor quality pictures of the moon. Cheer up though... I read somewhere on one of NASA's sites that they intend to send an imaging probe to Pluto somewhere around the year 2012. Good news, yes? ...

Re: Great new (at least to me) Comet Texture

if you are talking about the Comet3.jpg ? I made that texture by combining my Asteroid tetxture with part of a 2k Europa texture. Also you don't have to replace your Asteroid texture to use it. just find the Comets in your ssc files, and edit them to use the Comet texture. otherwise all your Astero...

Great new (at least to me) Comet Texture

Don't know if the following has been around or not, but the following comet texture - i.e. "comet3.jpg" can be found at the following site. http://exp.arc.nasa.gov/downloads/celestia/textures/medres/ When applied to Hale-Bopp, Halley or any other comet, it makes a vast improvement in the display. I ...

Charon 2k texture. Where or when?

Daniel,

Sorry, I'm having the same problem. If I find a good medres texture, I'll let you know. Thus far, however, no luck.

Take care, Bob

Ultra fast DDS viewer

Hi all... Would just like to verify that Irfanview does indeed read and convert DDS files as of the latest release (provided also that you have downloaded all of the plugins.) My Windows XP machine can now view DDS files after their conversion to PNG files. Simply open the DDS file, then use the "Sa...

Re: Preliminary .CEL Scripting Guide Updated

Don, Just wanted to thank you for the resource. It's hard enough to find information concerning Celestia's commands, SSC's, DSC's, STC's, textures, models, and all the other features without some guidance. I *really* appreciate the scripting guide. It makes it one heckuva lot easier to understand wh...

My First script for use in displaying Galactic Treasures.

The following is a large script, only because it's use is to display some (a lot) of the great galactic treasures you people have made available to me via the net. Since I don't have a URL for use in downloading the script, I just thought I'd copy it here and let you criticize it, copy it, modify it...
