Lua Edu Tools and Celestia Patch 3

Post #1by zeraeiro » 19.01.2007, 14:52

What are the differences between Lua Edu Tools and Celestia Patch 3? Is one based on the other?

I'd like to translate them both. I've already understood how to do it with Lua Edu Tools but I'm not sure about Patch 3.

Thanks in advance,

Jos?© Raeiro

Jos?©,

To build Celestia patch, I had to modify the source code of Celestia 1.4.1, whereas the Lua Edu Tools are developped as an addon to place in the extras folder of Celestia 1.5. That means that the Lua Tools are easily customable without having to recompile the whole source code. This is by far a most evolutional solution.

However, some Celestia patch features (like the possibility to play sound) have not been included in The Lua Tools, yet...
