Due to frequent questions regarding the "Mie" settings within the .ssc's I list here some thematic websites (as well as some tips and hints).
Please note that I am also just a self-taught learner in these things. But I think I should share my little knowledge with you (while I'm still pixeling and puzzling at the phobos map...).
And everyone who has a more extensive knowledge on this topic is welcome here.
So, at first read this:
http://forum.celestialmatters.org/viewtopic.php?t=116&start=0 (particularly look at page 6)
In principle here - and the links within these pages - everything - important for our "Celestia"-work - is explained. (Oh yes, I know, my english is wunderfull, isn't it?)
other Mie - related sites
=> All that was mentioned in these pages already, I will not repeat here.
The biggest obstacle at this work is probably the most common start of the program to check the changed values.
So, let's begin;
I start with these values: Mie and MieScaleHeight. Until the height of the atmosphere is right, transparent enough and makes no display problems.
At this stage, the colour has a minor aspect.
For the colour of the atmosphere give a "#" in front of the "Absorption"-line. Then choose the colours for your atmospheric composition ("Rayleigh").
Note: the higher the values the higer the (colour-)density. (I assume that the chemical composition of the atmosphere is known to you...)
Now, delete "#" and change the "Absorption" values.
("0.0" means there is no absorption.) Then customize the "MieAsymmetry"-value (between 1 and -1).
That's all for now. It's not much, but I hope it helps a bit...
All tutorials about Celestia go in here. For Celestia itself, add-ons, textures, scripting, etc.
