More comets for Celestia

Hello, Here is a ssc file which brings 227 additionnal comets to Celestia. The data come from the IAU Minor Planet Center http://www.minorplanetcenter.net The limited goal of this file is to provide the position of each comet. I have no information about the size or the rotation of each comet. So th...

Re: C/2013 A1 (mars)

  it does not seem to get very close with this orbit, though. I get only about a third of one AU Yes. For me it is because SemiMajorAxis is not relevant for hyperbolic orbits. just comment out the corresponding line like this # SemiMajorAxis -3613.3711384783 #Hyperbolic orbit (or just delete it) :!:...

Should work! models and textures are already present in Celestia at the right place. Don't bother with that.

Re: How to get a list of stars around some target?

Hi,

Have a look here
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Celestia/C ... stia#stars

In the given example stars are selected by spectral type but you can choose the distance from a target or any creterion you want.

Re: Navigation tools - NEW: TRUE 3D cockpits

.
As announced in the last post, the English documentation is now available.

The original English manual is also provided if you want to help for the translation.
By the way there is also a little update to do with the locale_cockpits_xx.lua in the locale directory.

Re: Navigation tools - NEW: TRUE 3D cockpits

Hi, Thank you for the Russian translation of the manual. :) It is now on-line in the forum. I made some improvements to the 3D version (which is now 3D-1) The improvements concern mainly the 3D cockpits. It is now possible to move relative to the cockpit as it is moving. This is especially useful wh...

Re: Navigation tools - NEW: TRUE 3D cockpits

  3D cockpits usage You can use a 3D cockpit as any other simple cockpit. If fact you can use the model alone, without any plug-in at all. It is not the cockpits pluging that allows the model to follow the pilot but the scripted orbit. However, the navigation tool offers additional options. By defau...

Re: Navigation tools - NEW: TRUE 3D cockpits

I thought the last version was the final version, but some time ago, Fungun gave me a 3D model to make a new multipanel cockpit. This model is beautiful and it was a shame to reduce it to some flat images. That is why I looked for a way to use it as a true 3D cockpit. I have read the discussion betw...
