Re: Drawing a better star

mmontag , Hey. Chris will not return to the project. At least that's what he told me. Of the old developers, no one particularly expressed a desire to return to the project. Now we are developing Celestia by the forces of not indifferent people on Github. We will be happy if you will help with prog...

LukeCEL, In the coming days, a new Celestia website will be launched on the same domain.

Engage in the translation of the old website does not make sense, because it will cease to exist.

Re: Concerns about the impact of file system changes

Chuft-Captain, In the future we will check your theory about the loading order. I expect a small database update in December, then release Celestia 1.7.0 beta. Checking her work, you can tell me about any problems.
