Updating exoplanet textures

I mean, for a start, for ocean planets you just need a blue background and some spec+clouds. Second, well i mean we don't have many artists. Not that many active artists anyway. Snowfall did Haumea and Kexitt did Celestia Origin's exoclass textures - problem is they're not active (Snowfall SE'd and ...

Re: Extrasolar Planets (updated catalogue)

According to Sirius_Alpha there's a paper somewhere that effectively deconfirmed Dagon and characterized it as some dust cloud or smth.

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 for OS X available here

Hi, currently 1.7.0 is the in-development version.
The latest stable release is 1.6.1, however this does not work on Catalina, so you will have to use beta-1.6.2, under the announcements section on the forums.

SevenSpheres,
I don't mind if he posts stuff here. This thread could also be for suggestions on the project and I quite like MrSpace43's texture.

Re: Project Echoes (Celestia Content Rework) - Release 0.1

SevenSpheres, Dysnomia and Vesta definetly should be changed. Charon is debatable but that's an argument for another time. Wikipedia also says about Salacia that "Salacia is large enough that it is unlikely to have a significant porosity and is likely differentiated." of course the one you...

Re: New bugfix release 1.6.2-beta1

Nice! I fell like 1.6.2 should be updated on the Celestia website as "Celestia Classic" once 1.7 is out.

Re: Extrasolar Planets (updated catalogue)

Suggestion:
WD 1145+017 b should be classified as a dwarf planet since it is only ~1700 km in size and is actively vaporizing.

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Although I would like for this to be implemented, I'd imagine there would be serious technical issues. Meanwhile, I have another suggestion: Make it so we can name the default surface of an object. Since we can name Altsurfaces to anything we want, such as "1996 (Hubble)", why can't we nam...
