Additional Information / Images / External Link in Celestia

Post #1by TutliQ » 09.04.2010, 01:58

Well... I think my question won't be original and probably there are a lot of discussions about this matter already, but I didn't find answer so I want ask some questions about additional information and images in Celestia :)

I often use Celestia in places where no any Internet communications available. So I should download articles from Wikipedia or create a web-document to show graphics, diagrams, images with a big amount of information. I use web-documents because file 'InfoText' from Lua Edu Tools doesn't satisfy me. This is a simple text file without any formatting, fonts, italicized words, symbols, etc. I tried to use slideshow that has been discussed in appropriate threads somewhere on the forum but it didn't satisfy my inquiries as well. Only web-documents (HTML) can provide everything I need. There's a line in ssc-file called "InfoURL" but unfornunately I can't use local paths like "../info/ISS.html" there! Celestia allows only Internet adresses like "http://examplesite.stations.ISS.su" or something like that.

So I've got the next qustions:
- Is it possible that I do something wrong with ssc-file if I can't use local paths? I use Windows, not Linux, and I'm afraid there's a difference betwen '/' and '\' in these OS when you want to write a path to a file..
- Or is it a Celestia's feature?
- Is there any addon that may resolve my problem? For example, is it possible to use some kind of Lua Edu Tools elements like boxes to put there a proper link and open html-file from there?

- Andrew

Last evening I found solution, it seems.
The line should contain the next string: file://C:/Celestia/extras/my/info/ISS.html
Sometimes I hate Linux-makers for such things :) It's an absolute path, not relative, unfortunately. But it's better than anything.
