Re: Project "Celestia Origin"

Oh my. Just check out Snowfalls originals: https://snowfall-the-cat.deviantart.com/gallery/ This time I will compare everything carefully. Concerining color, I do not trust any color images of Uranian moons around the internet, since Voyager didn't image the moons with the necessary color filters. ...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin"

The images of a gray Ariel are grayscale. Ariel, in reality, has a reddish-brown color. In each of those comparison images above, there is a Celestia image (left) and a Voyager 2 image (right). Wikipedia is writing " The surface of Ariel is generally neutral in color " with reference to t...

I do not advise using it anywhere, except for our Moon.

Re: Iapetus cmod

By the way, I would also not refuse the format .obj. Then we can independently reduce the number of polygons.

it is already as 244615 verts and 244620 faces , but it is UV mapped
I am guided by the number of polygons. Now 489 240, and I ask to reduce to 300 000. For a very detailed model this is optimal. Is it really not clear that I want to increase productivity? :insane:

Re: Project "Celestia Origin"

For Uranus itself or its moons? I do not see anything suitable for the moons. So I'm interested in Uranus. Other Uranus maps are more focused on details that are not present in visible light One of your infrared textures is already in use, as an alternative (see attachment). Maybe I missed somethin...

Re: Iapetus cmod

John Van Vliet < I have no experience with these utilities. You are better at this than me. You can simply reduce the number of polygons to 300,000 so that I can include Iapetus in "Celestia Origin"?

Re: Iapetus cmod

Is it possible to reduce the number of polygons to 256 or 300 thousand? To reduce the load on the system.

Re: Project "Celestia Origin"

Well it includes fictional details for sure, but it gíves much more realistic renders than any photographic maps. But that's personal taste I guess. There are too many fictitious details. The truth is more precious to me than beauty. :wink: If you refer to the image by Calvin J. Hamilton you posted...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin"

Here is an addon for all major moons of Uranus: https://fargetanik.deviantart.com/art/Uranus-Project-Missing-Data-Celestia-Addon-690191377 Credit goes to Snowfall These textures are precisely from that category, which destroy the naturalness. :fie: I also made some Uranus textures, as well as other...

If you look closely, the photo also has barely noticeable stripes.

Re: Project "Celestia Origin"

Ah well...these 2k textures will do until there are better textures available. Also, If you want a 3d model of Iapetus, Fenerit has made a model, but it only includes the equatorial ridge, and it cannot have both a texture and a normalmap. You can find it here: https://celestiaproject.net/forum/vie...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin"

Your 2k textures of Ariel, Umbriel, Titania, and Oberon are probably my favorite part of this addon. Would it be possible to make the textures 4k? Sources were is 2k. More qualitative specimens that would not destroy the naturalness, I did not come across. The current textures are also far from ide...

Re: Project "Celestia Origin"

A Uranus Surface Texture of at least 2k (If possible) It's possible, but does it make sense? Uranus is almost without noticeable details. A 3d Iapetus model (again, if possible) I very much want this model myself! But unfortunately so far NASA has not provided anything. Make it by yourself will be ...
