Re: New Halley's Comet, 5535 Annefrank, Puck & Larissa model

Fantastic !!! The craters and indentations on Puck and Larissa look superb now. Its seems a shame to get rid of the old shiny Braille model though, perhaps I could position it somewhere on Earth as a statue!!! ;-) Jack Whilst on the subject, I've downloaded anim8tor out of curiosity, and imported in...

Re: New Halley's Comet, 5535 Annefrank, Puck & Larissa model

Hello Jack Just downloaded them and not being too critical, I think all barring the Annefrank model should be smoothed out if possible? Especially the craters and indentations on Puck and Larissa where even your pictures above show them to have a blocky 'Atari' like appearance in places! It would be...

Re: Low Level Flying SSC

WARNING

I think I should mention this to advise any people suffering from epilepsy that the screen will FLASH when applying the above SSC. Especially if you set the the time greater than 1x and your earth texture is capable of specular reflections.

Take Care

Low Level Flying SSC

If anyone out there wishes to see low level flying around the earth from betwen 250m and 12km then here's the SSC code, using the space shuttle as an example; "Sub-orbital" "sol/earth" { Mesh "Columbia.3ds" # (version:94.3kb:date modified 02/02/03 18:48 with jp...

Re: NGC 7293, The Helix Nebula

CHRIS Great stuff! I thought it must have been a bug for viewing smaller sized objects. ASTROBOY The only prob now with these new settings is the nebula looks smaller if seen from earth. ie go to the space shuttle launch model (if you have it)and view the sky. Your original figures made the nebula l...

Re: NGC 7293, The Helix Nebula

Here is a quote from Leicester University Astronomy Society Website; NGC7293, The Helix Nebula The Helix Nebula is the largest and probably the closest planetary nebula. Although the Helix Nebula has a magnitude of 6.3, it is a massive 12x16 arcmins - that is half the apparent diameter of the Moon! ...

Re: UFO model

Another idea is to produce a xyz orbit for it around the solar system. I'm sure this can be done!??? I had a look at a way of doing this by going into celestia and saving different locations at different dates then going out of celestia and opening the 'favorites' file with 'notepad' and viewing the...

Re: UFO model

I think gold would be a better colour. Have you sorted out its orbit yet? You could do a lot worse than put it around the main star in the Rosetta Nebula (HIP 500000) using the following settings; "UFO" "HIP 500000" { Class "spacecraft" Mesh "ufo.3ds" Rad...

Re: New 81P/Wild 2 xyz- Jupiter gravity assists!

Nice one Jack! I also like your Braille asteroid model, which looks a bit like a modern art sculpture that could be called the 'reclining lady'! Is there anything you could possibly do to the existing Bacchus asteroid model to make it look more curvy and a little less angular? Regards TERRIER

Re: UFO Model

If anybody wants their 'close encounter' with earth to be below the cloud level then adjust the eccentricity value in your ssc data to;

0.9999291

UFO Model

If anyone is interested (and doesn't have it already!) there is a 3ds model of a UFO that is free to download at 'amazing3d.com' I have the model and a SSC file I have produced (with an unusual orbit around earth) in a zipped folder (255kb). Perhaps the best way to make it available would be for me ...

Re: IC 434 and NGC2024

Does anyone have any accurate settings for star clusters around the NGC2023 and 2024 nebulas for use in the cluster generator?


OOOPS!

Another great model Jack, keep 'em coming!!!!

How do you fancy a go at the MAGELLAN orbiter around Venus!?( see also ElPaledos question in Celestia Development).

Re: magallanes

Hello ElPeledo I think you are meaning the MAGELLAN orbiter which was launched from the space shuttle in 1989. Perhaps this is another spacecraft Jack could model for us!!!? I rekon that Venus and Mercury need to be more interesting, so a few probes and orbiters around them should do nicely! Maybe M...
