Has anyone have a archive of Celestia-1.7.0?

Post #1by rl90599 » 27.09.2020, 02:44

Hello, since I've heard that Alexell (the creator of Celestia 1.7.0) has left Celestia and shut down the website hosting Celestia version 1.7.0. I, however, managed to get it before the website shut down, but I don't know where the files were originally named.

onetwothree took over Celestia development in late 2018; see the Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread. There are two ways you can get the current in-development Celestia 1.7.0 for Windows:

  • Download one of the builds from Bintray; however these are outdated.
  • Download one of the builds from Appveyor; these are just binaries so they also require the files from GitHub.
  • Also, Celestia 1.7.0 for Mac is being developed along with Mobile Celestia and can be downloaded here.

If you want Alexell's 1.7.0, I have this zip file:

How do I download the current builds? Do I need to compile them myself, because I'm not an expert on compiling programs. I also use Windows.

use the ones in appveyor.... however appveyor builds are failing.

https://ci.appveyor.com/project/375gnu/celestia/history go for the latest one labeled with a merged PR in GitHub

The code execution cannot proceed because celestia.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.
Why does it do that? I just want to see the new features Celestia 1.7.0 has!

Those DLLs are in the "celestia-dep.x86.7z" file.

Thank you! Maybe next time host a website containing those files so I don't have to come here until the files get expired.

Also, why are the names/labels not rendered here? Is this some error or I forgot to enable something? I am using the Qt version.

I'm not sure what you mean by that? You can always download the latest build from Appveyor.

Due to the amount of changes in Celestia 1.7.0, the binaries need to be used with the files from GitHub rather than the files included with Celestia 1.6.x. This specific problem is due to 1.7.0 replacing .txf fonts with .ttf fonts.

Also, there is a glitch where the ring shadows aren't rendered properly on clouds. Maybe fix that too.
