Re: the 1.4prev9 bug report thread

To my report, I add that it is Earth's oceans that is white in the OpenGL 2.0 render path when the clouds are on. When the clouds are off, Earth is totally white. On Pluto and Charon, the areas where the specular maps are white become white on the planet, and the correspondence is rough. It looks li...

Re: the 1.4prev9 bug report thread

My new Windows XP system has an ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 card and I got the lastest drivers from the ATI site and prerelease 9 of Celesita. In the OpenGL 2.0 render path, Earth's oceans are white where the specular map is white. For Iapetus, it is totally white. Pluto and Charon are also white where th...

Re: Chloride oceans --> chlorine gas?

I loved that book. Stephen Gillett wrote it and Ben Bova edited it. Apparently, it's part of a worldbuilding series.

Re: models not appearing in Celestia

Do the ISS model filename and the filename specified in the ssc file have the same cases of letters?

Re: New Celestia-1.4.0pre-FT1 (galaxies) for Testing

I looked on http://www.freewarehome.com/, which has lots of free Windows stuff, and found some such as this http://www.jrsoftware.org/isinfo.php I didn't try any of them before. Celesita is linked to from the freeware site too. 8)

Re: New Celestia-1.4.0pre-FT1 (galaxies) for Testing

I fixed the problem. Near the $(INTDIR)\execution.obj \ line in engine.mak, there is a tab character there in the list of obj files. Remove that. I also removed the other whitespace I saw in the list. :wink:

Re: Send Your Name to Pluto - Deadline soon!

I added my name. What speed will New Horizons be at when it is going into interstellar space? I read that it'll be at 11 km/s at closest encounter with Pluto. At that speed, it would take over 20,000 years to reach the inner Oort cloud at 50,000 AU away and over 40,000 years to get to the outer edge...

Re: Latest cvs build is crashing when I cycle through rendering

I sent Frank a celestia.exe that is from cvs as of July 12, so it has the old galaxy rendering, plus the code I copied from later sources for the --config option. If anyone else needs it, I'll post it.

Re: Default fov

Oh, I thought the middle button still changed the fov to the standard value. Now that it goes back to the default fov, the | key can be saved for something else.

Default fov

Where is the default field of view of 25 something degrees set? I looked in start.cel, celestiacore.cpp, observer.cpp, simulation.cpp and render.cpp and only found numbers for a 45 degree fov. I'll use this to set up '|' to reset the fov to the default value so I won't need to take a long time to zo...
