New (fictious) galaxy addon

Post #1by Cham » 02.10.2011, 19:42

I'm now releasing the galaxy (with stars) shown on this thread :

http://www.celestiaproject.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=16645

Here are some previews (the planets aren't included in this addon). Click on the two pictures below to get a very large version (2560 X 1600) :

Create your own Space Art cosmic sceneries by adding planets to the numerous Main Sequence stars included in this addon ! If you do use this addon, post some pictures here !

Download link :

Read the included readme.txt file for some instructions, and don't forget to use the included CELX script to cycle through the seven rendering states of the galaxy !

Enjoy ! :)

Easy ! You didn't followed the instructions in the readme file ! You need to put the template PNG file in your base models folder before launching Celestia.

Unfortunately, Celestia doesn't recognize the extras/models folder to draw custom galaxies !

As I said in the first post, the planets aren't included in this addon. You need to add your own planets to make your personnal Space Art, cosmic sceneries, etc...

EDIT : This addon is just the "decor" for fictious planetary systems, with a LARGE reservoir of stars to choose from. We can make all sorts of cool stuff, using this decor : an entire galaxy full of stars !

More pictures of the addon published in the first post (again, the planet isn't part of the addon). I reduced the opacity of one of the sprites models.

A lot of the main sequence stars are over-bright for their class. Is this what you meant when you said "semi-realistic" in the readme?

Anyways, here's a screenshot from me:

404. :( I was going to make an addon for this galaxy now that I have a new computer; hopefully I have a copy on a flash drive or something.

EDIT: It's back.

He withdrew his addons from the site, as far as I can tell. Archive.org 's "wayback machine" couldn't find them either.

Sorry. :(
