Old versions of celestia??

Post #1by Snowfall » 19.08.2016, 03:21

Hey! i know that Celestia has been kinda dead for a long time now. but i was curious if anyone could link me to the older developments of Celestia.
i started using Celestia back in 2004 ish and i would like to revisit that. and would love to see any older versions if i can, just out of curiosity.

i tried looking around on google and found this http://master.dl.sourceforge.net/project/celestia/OldFiles/celestia-1.2.5.tar.gz
but cant do anything with it.

help :help:

this is to some extent an actual version of the old Celestia
Older versions unfortunately, but is unlikely to have survived. :sad:

Old Versions Of Celestia?

I'm a Celestia cyber packrat. Besides Sourceforge, I have those programs in the following order: 1.1.4, 1.2.4, 1.2.5, 1.3.0, 1.3.1-1, 1.3.2pre8, 1.3.2pre10, and the more recent ones. I'm not sure why you would want to use those older programs. Many addons will not work, and the older the program the more difficult to use. Sourceforge has all of the ones I have, so you can get those from them, except 1.1.4. The 1.1.4 is actually not worth anyone's time. The zip file size is 11.3 MB, and it is Windows 32, and made in the Win98 era and there were many issues. As I recall, it was with relief when I upgraded to 1.2.4. It was the first version I used, so I keep it around.

you can always just clone the svn repo and have every version
pre 1.0 to just after 1.7
