Help! Problem with SSC file

Post #1by bnlsn » 19.01.2020, 18:10

Hi all! I apologize for the novice nature of this question but I have looked all over the forum and cannot find an answer. We have been assigned a project for school in which we have to make our own functioning solar system in celestia. I have written an SSC containing 8 planets and placed it in a folder in the extras folder within the program files for celestia, but when I search any of the objects in celestia itself nothing shows up. If anyone could help me identify/fix this issue it would be greatly appreciated!!!

Here is my code:

Code: Select all

"Dropout" "HIP 56452"

Did you follow the instructions on how to create an SSC file? There may be some bits of code that is typed wrong that it prevents your system from being rendered. Other than that, I'd recommend to you fyr02 to help you out on this, because he knows how to create planetary systems

You have a typo - ElipticalOrbit should be EllipticalOrbit (add a second "l"). Also, "Yeezus" is missing a closing bracket.

So Celestia is still being used in schools then? That's nice to hear. Out of curiosity, where is your school? (No need to reply if your teacher's name is Frank Gregorio. :wink:)
