Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi Gironde and Croc. As you told, the compared dimensions between N-1 launch Pad and Proton-M rocket are wrong, so I tried a simple solution, i.e. I modified the Proton-M radius, and at the same time I increased the height above ground, to compensate for increased size. This was simple, just two lin...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi Gironde. As I told I know nothing about 3d modelling, but I like to check what I can, so I ruotated 180° the Apollo bmp texture, checked it in cmodview, and it was ruotated 180° as it has not to be really. So I opened the Apollo 12 in Celestia and the result is OK now: Apollo 12 Mod.JPG Just a th...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi. :hi:
I wished to compare old and new Mars Odissey models, and here the result.

Old-New Mars Odissey.jpg
Outstanding!


The new model improvement is really big, thanks a lot for making it.

Hi Gironde.
Sorry but Curiosity body looks to be transparent, showing both rear wheel suspension systems. :sad:
Bye.

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi Toutatis. About MAVEN, I had some doubt about the front solar panels color, shown golden in this #1 image from Celestia Origin last release: 1-MAVEN front in Celestia Origin.jpg and back solar panels color, shown flat silver in #2 image here: 2-MAVEN back in Celestia Origin.jpg so I made a search...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi Toutatis and Gironde. I'm appreciating a lot what you are doing with spacecraft models, very nice and precious job, but (there is aolways a "but", alas!) I find just a small defect in all of them: they look too much "new", just like kids new plastic toys. :weirdface: IMHO they...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi Toutatis. After checking a bit on Goddard pages, I found that the right solution is that it should not rotate. It's an imaging satellite, so it must be fixed along its orbit, not rotating, to obtain not-blurred exposures. So I think orientation shoud be 0, but I'm not sure at all. Ready to change...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi Toutatis. I just tested your TESS model, very nice, but it has a bit cahotic rotation. So I checked the ssc file, and I found that Orientation is "[ 250 1 0 0 ]" instead of "270 1 0 0" that produces a rotation around TESS longitudinal axis. What is the correct axis angle, 250 ...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi Toutatis.
Can you please upload TESS ssc file?
And, just curious, why this one is 3DS only while your previous one was cmod too?
Thanks a lot.

Re: Where is VY Canis Majoris?

Hi Gurren Lagann and Danny Lorraine II. Just an opinion. I'm sincerely tired to read on many threads (why not only one?) questions regarding what is the bigger star and so on, or why xxx isn't in Celestia data. Well all the questions have been replied many times (with even too much patience, IMHO), ...

Re: Celestia 1.7 Installation

Hi Janus. No, nothing in the file menu bar "Render" window, and if I click Alt+R I can only read the actual texture resolution (Low-Medium-High), while in the 1.6.1 version it is correctly in the "Render" window. Can it be fixed? :help: And, I repeat, please can the toolbar be vi...

Re: Celestia 1.7 Installation

Hi. I made a check of the starting time for Celestia 1.6.1 as installed, and the 1.7.0-112818, both with no addons or extras. Here the results: 1.6.1: Earth shown in 8.53 seconds, 1.7.0: Earth shown in 13.24 seconds. A notable 55% starting time increase. Is it normal? Moreover I cannot find the scre...
