Re: Asteroid 231937

Regarding models appearing all black in cmodview, this is actually a phenomenon I have faced regularly since I created Progress. As for the models not showing in Celestia, I have also seen this occur with my Starship addon. Only the difference with Starship is that it is only occurring on the iOS ve...

Happy 20th Anniversary Celestia!!!

Though I was too young to know of Celestia early on, I am so glad to have discovered in its entirety. Shortly after Arecibo collapsed, I was feeling a bit down as I personally knew how significant the telescope was to the scientific community. At the same time, I was also looking for a way to make b...

Some very old, but very interesting models for Russian spacecraft designs: http://buran.ru/htm/3d-model.htm http://buran.ru/htm/vrml.htm If someone is ever willing to convert these to .obj, that would be fantastic btw.

Progress, Starship & Gironde

UPDATE REGARDING PROGRESS: I don’t think my progress addon needs to be updated after all from a lighting perspective. Turns out that simply activating eclipse shadows eliminated 99.9% of this overbrightness issue. So unless this is really becoming a problem for other users, I think I’m going to leav...

ROSCOSMOS Progress Cargo Spacecraft

Releasing this instead of the Cygnus or Cargo Dragon for the time being. Hopefully I can get those two to work properly in the near future. Note: Be on the lookout for an updated version of this spacecraft as I very likely will be changing the albedo, (or whatever it is called), so that it is not so...

Re: fun with Blender2.91

These look incredible!!! I especially like landmasses on both of them as they have a really nice surface texturing too them. Makes it feel all the more realistic to an actual exoplanet. Great job! :clap:

Error in .ssc file (Line 2): object name expected

So I was able to get a hold of a Windows device in order to continue developing add ons for Celestia. However, I'm now running into a new problem when creating my add ons. Using my SNC Dream Chaser .ssc file as a template for my future add ons, I am now ending up with none of my add ons loading in C...

Re: Unable to get either .3ds or .cmod files to load more than one texture

The problem is not so much getting Anim8tor to run, but rather that the entire time it is running, I cannot click on any of the controls within the Anim8tor window. :sad: I'm going to hold off on making any further add ons for Celestia. I'll continue to share on the forum links to any 3d models I fi...

Re: Unable to get either .3ds or .cmod files to load more than one texture

I'm on MacOS 10.14.6 Mojave. When I run Anim8tor through Wine, all I get are endless graphical glitches, and a completely unresponsive Anim8tor user interface. :sad: I have no doubt that Anim8tor is fantastic, but I don't think it is the best way forward here. :think:

Re: Unable to get either .3ds or .cmod files to load more than one texture

Thanks for the recommendation, though I'm unable to do this as I work on a Mac, and I don't currently have access to a Windows device. So unless there a Mac version of Anim8tor that I'm unaware of, I don't think this method will work for me.

Unable to get either .3ds or .cmod files to load more than one texture

Having had a boost of confidence from my first addon, I decided go ahead and begin working on my next addon. However, I seem be to be unable to get either a .cmod version or .3ds version of my model file from using more than a single texture file. Is there a way to solve this issue? I've heard that ...

Sierra Nevada Corporation Dream Chaser

My first ever add on for Celestia, and hopefully not the last. An indirect descendant of the HL-20 spacecraft project by NASA, Dream Chaser is one of several spacecraft being developed by various companies as part of the Commercial Crew Development Program created by NASA back in 2011. Though it has...

Re: Model showing parts that shouldn't be visible

Will give that a try. I'm currently running it with .dds files, though I don't know if that may also be part of the problem.

Added after 28 minutes 17 seconds:
Looks to be all fixed! Appreciate the help! Now to try and reorient the darn thing! :smile:

Model showing parts that shouldn't be visible

So after fiddling around a bit with various models, I did manage to this model of Dream Chaser to load, (almost), correctly in Celestia. However, I currently am finding that right now, when in Celestia, the model displays, but parts such as the landing gear are visible when the should not be visible...

Create an official .cmod plugin for Blender and other applications

Recently, I posted a link to an ISS model from NASA, which had a very nice SpaceX Cargo Dragon model docked to one of the ports. Having managed to extract it from the original model in Blender 2.9. I have now had to deal with essentially back porting it from the newest version of Blender, down to 2....
