Re: Addons I'm working on: Gaea, Alliance/Union, Orion's Arm

Maybe we should really analyse the usefulness of Celestia. For example Celestia is perfect for: - creating photorealistic astronomy simulations - creating educational materials - exploring the Universe - understanding the real scale and internal structure of the Universe - creating sci-fi models and...

Re: Addons I'm working on: Gaea, Alliance/Union, Orion's Arm

OK, you are right of course, but I hope you can see what I mean: a lot of people simply don't realise the full potential of Celestia. It takes months or maybe years for some people to learn it.

Those wormhole routes... :clap:

I wish it would be a standard feature in Celestia...

Celestia is now like the best word processor ever but without the ability to edit the text after loading it...:insane:

Re: How can Celestia handle 20GB Gaia star data?

Can we use 5 or 6 4GB data chunks to simulate a 20GB 64 bit addressing somehow?

Re: How can Celestia handle 20GB Gaia star data?

Thank you for your answer!

Whoa. Does that mean we have to rearrange the GAIA data in a specific way and Celestia can use it right away?

How can Celestia handle 20GB Gaia star data?

There were an interesting topic on the Space Engine forum (I copied it down below). It is about handling very large data in Space Engine. Is it possible to develop something similar in Celestia? How much work is it? Can it be borrowed from Space Engine? :wink: *** http://en.spaceengine.org/forum/8-3...

Re: Welcome to restored Celestia Forums

Alexell: I think it depends on us. I my opinion it is 90% ready and perfect, but needs some development. Can't be that hard to implement some changes. I personally can't believe that NO ONE seems to be excited about the Gaia star data...I mean, this is the most important new challenge for Celestia. ...
