Hi Maxim,

you have ringshadows in celestia to. Goto Saturn and press Ctrl+V to switch the shadermode. If your graphiccard a GeForce or a ATI you can see the ringshadows.

Re: New Protostar/protodisc add-on available for review

I`m sorry to hear that, mike. No, i can not make the texture as a JPG, because the texture has a alpha-layer and JPG-Files do not have one. Another question: have you Deep Exploration installt on your PC or any other 3d-design-program? If so i can make a little step-by-step. If not, you can download...

I experiment with the mesh to get the best result without puting a second mesh on the scene. I have still the problem that by some user the Disc...
