Commerical Celestia

Post #1by watersb » 30.11.2010, 02:29

I just saw a web advertisement for "3D Astronomer", which is a commercial release of Celestia. They've gathered lots of add-ons and other important content. I suppose they provide tech support.

http://3dastronomer.com/
$49 and apparently Windows-only.

They certainly acknowledge that it's Celestia, which you can download for free. For their distribution, though, it's $49.

Who are John Bayer and his 3DAstronomer Team?.

Presumably some well-known fellows of this community!? :mrgreen:

Really motivating....I love it.

So what is different with this compared to the free Celestia? Besides the addons that is.

Just in case someone wants to write a little "love" letter to John Bayer. For instance complaining that the source code and the COPYRIGHTS to "The Celestia Development Team" are not made available with EVERY sold/downloaded copy of the 3DAstronomer software. Or that some add-ons are released under more restrictive licenses...
