Re: Planet b around proxima centauri !

Here's the details for the planet that I could find: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxima_Centauri#Planetary_system

Unfortunately, it doesn't include inclination and mean longitude and the radius is a guess based on the assumption its composition is similar to the Earth...

Re: Planet b around proxima centauri !

I already posted about this in the Physics/Astronomy forum but I agree, someone needs to make this add-on ASAP.

Planet found around Proxima Centauri!

The good news is its a little bigger than the Earth and in the habitable zone. The bad news is, Proxima Centauri is a flare star.

Re: Does anyone know of updated Pluto textures.

I found some semi-fictional textures of Pluto that are based on the photos by New Horizon. Semi-fictional as in the northern hemisphere is real but the southern is not. http://www.fedtrek.com/staff/omega13a/celestia/omega_galaxy/textures/medres/pluto4.jpg http://www.fedtrek.com/staff/omega13a/celest...

Re: Welcome to restored Celestia Forums

Wow. I found this while searching for an add-on I've mostly lost. I had given up hope at ever seeing the forums... Anyways, I'd love to help with updating the planet catalogues for a new version of Celestia.

Re: Verona Planetary System (Fictional)

The download link for this add-on no longer works. :cry: I was hoping to re-download it because I lost the SSC file (though I still have the textures in my collection).

Re: Current project: Modified Stargen (a solar system genera

That is very odd and I can't see how that is possible even though I'm able to recreate it... I was able to fix the problem (hopefully I'll have new binaries this evening) but I don't understand the cause of it. Getting that error message is like tossing a ball at the ground and it flying up and hitt...

Well, I don't have any equations to calculate the radius of brown dwarfs so I wouldn't trust any radius it gives a brown dwarf. :wink:

Re: Current project: Modified Stargen (a solar system genera

I finally got it to work after putting the temps AFTER the spectral type, rather than before; I'm a bit brain-dead myself, as I tend to do my commands in the same order as what the -help option shows. I don't know why it would make a difference what order they are in... I tested to see if that's an...

Re: Current project: Modified Stargen (a solar system genera

I think it might be time to update that readme. :P I do believe a detailed, in-depth explanation as to what works, what doesn't, what combos are good, which combos are bad, etc. might be a good idea. :) I didn't have time today to do that so I just reworded some things and added a few examples. The...

Re: Current project: Modified Stargen (a solar system genera

I corrected the few typos you pointed out and fixed the other problems. Also, when making a custom star, you need to specify a spectral type and/or temperature or the program won't work. I made it a little more clear as to why the -b and -B arguments are listed as optional. Usage: stargen [options] ...

Re: Current project: Modified Stargen (a solar system genera

My hunch was right. It was something I forgot. I included the wrong version of cygwin1.dll in the zip package. I put the one I had for the 2013 version of stargen instead of the one that was in the cygwin installation of the windows computer I compiled it on... Anyways, download it again. Same locat...

Re: Current project: Modified Stargen (a solar system genera

I noticed that I forgot to add some chemicals for atmospheres from the 2013 version into the 2014 version. I've re-added them as well as clean up the output for the -Z option and fixed some typos. You can download binaries of it for Linux at http://www.fedtrek.com/staff/omega13a/celestia/stargen_201...

Took me a little longer than I expected but after much testing, I think I got support for circumbinary systems to work.
