Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

but for these orbital parameters you need to use OrbitFrame... because, this data was taken from HORIZONS and was used the Ecliptic as the main plane of the orbit... by default Celestia use the equatorial plane of the central body as the main plane...

Oh OK...thanks @toutatis

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Thank you gironde Well, actually Dr. Martin Schweiger programmed Orbiter to work on any version of Windows a PC would like from XP to 10, yet for unknown reasons it didn't work on mine anymore...ever. Celestia works fine on the other hand :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin: . It's a bummer cause Orbiter i...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

If anyone knows Orbiter well and is able to edit the orbital parameters, it would be cool to communicate them to the community. Well, gironde I have good news and bad news: Good news is, Orbiter automatically translates and simulate them once the scenario file is loaded in the app. I'm also an Orbi...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Well, the parameters in every Orbiter addon featuring spacecraft IN SPACE will only show its relative position and velocity to its orbiting celestial body (as shown in its .SCN files when you access it through WordPad or NotePad) For Example, in Shuttle.scn: STS-101: Atlantis STATUS: Orbiting Earth ...

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hmm, why not take the orbital elements already given on those addons by accessing them to Orbiter directly? (Just a suggestion) :biggrin: :biggrin: :biggrin:

The addons I'm referring to were Orbiter's Vostok_Luna.v1.0.zip and Molniya.v1.0.zip

Re: Spacecrafts for Celestia

Hi there...new to the Celestia Forums First of all great work on creating new spacecraft addons for this program, especially when I noticed some of those ships were also addons for Orbiter itself! I wonder how you convert them to be Celestia-compatible...lolz HAHA. :biggrin: :biggrin: Anyways, when ...
