Re: Moving my old add-ons

Like I said, at the outset of this thread, I've been away from Celestia for a few years, so I've probably forgotten how to do quite a bit...my texture making & worldbuilding has improved, but making .ssc's? A smidge out of practice.

-M-

Thanks again!

Re: Current project: Modified Stargen (a solar system generator)

Do I download each file separately, or is there a single package?

Re: Moving my old add-ons

yeah. Everything is where it needs to be. Although, I just went through the normal means, not checking via terminal...which I don't know how to do. Check your Celestia's console (press tilde ~) to see debug messages and errors. How would I do that, exactly? I know how to do some things with Linux te...

Re: Current project: Modified Stargen (a solar system generator)

Ok, I was able to get Selden's version up & running (many thanks, sir!) I was hoping I could do the same with Omega13's version, but I don't see any of the C files in any of the folders, just .dll files. I've tried the directions to build his version for linux, but my terminal looks at me funny....

New wrinkle; my old addons work well, and I even was able to edit one of them. Still works fine. SO, I tried made a new add-on from my notebook of systems.

Re: A humble tool for creating Celestia systems

I keep getting an error about extraction. It keeps saying "Parsing Filters is unsupported." I'm running on linux if it helps. I was hoping to find something like this. All I have is the VERY old System Maker (which was once on CM, but vanished a long time ago.) For some reason, I can't get...

It happens to binaries that are already in the program. Not just what I've added in.

Binaries Just "Sit There"

So I've been able to incorporate my old add-ons, and everything checks out (I think) on some of my binary .stc files. I go in to check how they look/function/etc, and my binary systems are quite motionless. The orbits are shown when you click on each individual star, but not both, and the stars do n...

Re: Moving my old add-ons

It's the 1.61 version. Not super proficient with the terminal commands, but I am GREAT at following well-written instructions.
As far as accessing the root, I'm not even sure how to do that. "Open as root" is not an option on my file manager.


Thanks

Moving my old add-ons

First, it's nice to see that someone has picked up the baton and has continued running with Celestia. I haven't done too much with it for a while, rather, just focusing on adulting with odd bits of worldbuilding to pass the time. That said, I recently got Celestia working for my laptop, which is run...

Re: Recovering lost stargen seeds?

IF you didn't alter the .ssc, it's possible that you could have the info in the first few lines...I haven't used the original StarGen for some time, so I can't remember how it displays info for its .ssc's. A bit of a long shot, but maybe??? -M- PS..OK, I just took a peek at it...the prognosis is not...
