A copy of Celestia-1.6.1-ED without additional addons and scripts (virtual textures, spacecraft, etc.)

Post #1by rl90599 » 08.05.2020, 02:14

Hello, does anyone have a copy of Celestia-1.6.1-ED, but without additional addons and scripts? I'm looking for it because it has a better sound feature than Celestia 1.7.0's sound feature, which is basically broken for me.

I could send you a copy with the extra stuff removed if you want.

Just to note, the current builds of Celestia 1.7.0 do not have sound, although it will probably be re-implemented eventually.

Thanks, but what is the file size limit in this fourm? I think there is a file size limit here. If you can upload it to some file-sharing website, I'll appreciate it.

I don't actually know; I should...

Hmm, it's actually still kinda big (838 MB), should I see if I can cut the size down more?

Seems to be an Earth clouds VT which is in the main textures directory for some reason. If I remove it, you'll need to edit solarsys.ssc for Earth to have clouds. (I didn't remove the sound files so they may contribute as well.)

Edit: actually for Celestia-ED it's "solarsys-educational.ssc"

That's okay. I will replace the current .ssc files with Celestia's original .ssc files.

The forum went down for a few minutes; here is the link to the 838 MB file, I'm currently uploading a version without the Earth clouds VT or sound files which is 331 MB.

Thanks. It's ok about the file size, I have a ~8 gb flash drive that I download to.

Added after 1 minute 21 seconds:
Anyway, where will the size-reduced version of the file be at?
