Re: Hypothetical Bodies

You know what would be cool? Moons for the Fifth Giant. I do agree that it would be cool, and it is suspected that the fifth giant having an encounter with Saturn is the cause for the weird inclination of the Iapetan orbit. I even suggested that the fifth giant be named "Vortex" after a g...

Re: Project Sisyphus - Texturing/painting every exoplanet known

Also Joey, i will only accept real names/catalog IDs for stars, and any fan-made names will be excluded I know, they're part of my own worldbuilding project, but I plan to get a PhD (though my family cannot afford it) and get names from DP and FOP suggested. They're neptune sized actually. Seems li...

Re: Project Sisyphus - Texturing/painting every exoplanet known

There are two unconfirmed exoplanets orbiting Luyten 726-8; all are about the size of Jupiter. Even though they aren't confirmed, why not give them a try?

Fictional Neutron Star near the Sun with Surface Features

Here is the code for a .stc file for a fictional neutron star near the Sun (separated from it by a distance of 250 AU). You may recognize this neutron star from my previous addons. This time, I used an old mstar texture by FarGetaNik and edited it to give it a more neutron star-typical blue hue, and...

Re: Pictures from Celestia

Just like what MrSpace43 did with FarGetaNik's textures (M and L), I've decided to edit them for white dwarfs and neutron stars, the latter here. The texture has a poor quality but I'm okay with that. Daniel.jpg I might make a version with labeled surface features soon. Update: In this thread is the...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated April 30, 2020

I’m trying to understand why you don’t want to download. One - it is way too large for downloading - I tried downloading the textures just now but it takes 16 hours; Two - the first application I installed on this was Celestia 1.6.1ED and, for nostalgic reasons, would I'd like to keep it that way -...

What I mean is that I'm not downloading this project anymore. But just because I'm not doesn't mean I don't like it. I still do and I think it's good.

Re: A new Addon Repository concept (Formerly called "Should we make a new Motherlode?")

Yes, as long as it's scientifically sound. It is. I have edited it to include any "fanon". i passed it , there was only one issue with it I too would like to upload addons since you are still active at the Motherlode. Currently, I have uploaded a "Large Stars" addon that include...

Oh, great.

I just now uploaded an addon based on your Largest Stars one (with you being attributed). Is that fine with you? If not, then just alert John Van Vliet not to accept it.

It's not a youth protest! I'm just suggesting a way for this project to get more downloads, because it's an amazing one and deserves way more attention. It's a compliment.

Re: Project "Celestia Origin", release dated April 30, 2020

Are you going to attempt to upload this to the Motherlode? You should because that's where most people go for addons anyway. Even though I stopped downloading this, I think it is a great project and more people should download it.

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

I've made a list of Largest Stars values with sources; the values in green and blue are the most accurate, the non-highlighted ones I would not suggest changing. Just posting this for resourcefulness and a possible radius edit. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LmzrfDEwzv9ldTofTgu4iOxGCw9SlOC...
