Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated August 30, 2019

In addition, I made a couple of Uranus maps from Hubble data. You might want to take a look and see if they are good for the project.

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated August 30, 2019

Wow. This is GREAT! Titan and Galilean moon VTs are on point, and the topgraphic maps are good. There are a few things I suggest you fix for this update: 1. Ganymede's normal map is misaligned with the texture in a few places 2. Io and the normal map are severely misaligned in some places. 3. Add th...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

A separate, single Celestia 1.7 installation file would be nice! Is it possible to have a new 2 million stars data file in the installation from the new GAIA data set?

Since AstroDB development is not finished, no.

Re: Celestia Location Distribution

Lafuente_Astronomy, Thanks for telling me this! gironde was put on the user list as No. 57 but I believe I may have accidentally deleted him. It will be fixed. Edit: gironde is already on the list as No. 9. It's just that he and Péji happen to be extremely close together. In this case I still don't...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated April 30, 2019

After testing the Ganymede texture provided by Askaniy on DeviantArt and using the normal map from the current CO release, I found that the normal map and the surface map are misaligned on some parts. Checking the Ganymede map with the official USGS found no inconsistencies, so I believe the problem...

Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

Completely unrelated to scripting or the current situation, but just something random that popped into my head. Celestia Splash design contest! Once AstroDB is integrated it might be a good idea to redesign the splash for Celestia. We may hold a contest to see what the new splash will be. It would p...

Re: 1K and 2K textures. Is it necessary nowadays?

For moons, definitely keep 1K. The amount of textures that need to be rendered in that case justifies keeping 1K. For single bodies/important bodies (Mercury, Venus, Earth-Moon, Pluto, Mars) lowest resolution can be 2K. For textures that are low resolution to begin with (Uranus, Neptune) keep 1K. Fo...

2K should be kept. 1K is really up to you.

Re: fyr02's Fictional System

Added Asodreus orbiting around Koradeon.

Asodreus is a gas giant 87 times more massive than Earth. It sits in Koradeon's Habitable Zone, but as a gas giant it is inhospitable. However, one of its moons, Koleo, has the conditions just right to support life.
