Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated December 30, 2017

I remember seeing that the whole of the release is around 4.3G in size...Whatever happened to the extra gigabyte of stuff? Also, what do you do with these so-called par2 files once you have them?

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated December 30, 2017

Awesome! Now I just have to wait for Janus to release it outside the torrent file.

Celestia Origin has some neat addons indeed. It is very up to date, and I would love to add as many as possible, though it would be tedious to add them all to my already heavily modified Celestia installation.

Re: More Detail for Minor Moons

Hey! This give me the envy of returning to Celestia modeling! :eh: Well why don't you? It would be awesome to have you! :biggrin: The model looks cool, but the texture you are using makes it look...fictitious. Here is a view of the model used in Celestia with a more realistic texture: PanNewInfo.PN...

Re: More Detail for Minor Moons

LukeCEL, your models actually don't look too bad. Though I will probably end up waiting for Art Blos' improved version...I'm guessing they'll come out in the December 30th release.

More Detail for Minor Moons

I've taken a look at the minor moons in Celestia and have recognized that most of them need improvement, especially the minor moons of Saturn, which have been photographed in detail already. I am looking for methods to add detail to the minor moons to make them look more photo-realistic. Does anyone...

Huh...the last time I checked you didn't like the LunarLambert parameter...apparently that's changed.

[Request] Spacecraft that Lack an Addon

Hello, I would like to request that someone try to make addons for these spacecraft that currently have no addon for Celestia. 1. Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory 2.

Re: Heights and models

you'll need to post the original model, the cmod version, all of the texture files you're trying to apply to it and the SSC you're using to try to display it. I can do that. Here I have posted all the files you will need to find out what is wrong. The iapetustest5.cmod is the model that has no norm...

Re: Heights and models

John Van Vliet , would it be possible to not use Blender, because I cannot find out how to use that program to UV map meshes... I was looking for a method involving cmodview only. I already have the UV mapped mesh, just when I add the normal map and run it in Celestia, the normal map doesn't render...

I have another question for you: Would it be possible to use a model, normal map, AND surface texture all at once?

Re: A wish list

I would also love to see the ability to alternate cloud maps, for I would like to be able to alternate between normal and terraformed versions of both the surfaces and the clouds of planets/moons.

Re: New 1.7 11.17 version does not run - Chapter 2.

Janus , what I've been using is a virtually unmodified Celestia 1.6.1 installation, except with the new files put where they needed to be, and a huge amount of extras and addons, as well as a modified solarsys.ssc file and some other minor modifications to a few of the other main SSC files.

Re: New 1.7 11.17 version does not run - Chapter 2.

For some very strange reason, Celestia keeps crashing on the splash screen. It loads until the "loading data files" counter reaches 100%. Once it reaches 100%, it freezes and then comes up with the Windows "A problem caused the program to stop working correctly" error. I may have...
