Hello,

For my part, I made these addons.
3D sources have the same origin as toutatis
The orbital data come from e.wikipedia.

I also completed the Cluster II FM6 Salsa addon

Good discovery

I still have a problem. My cmod files do not report textures in celestia, be it an ascii or binary file.

I first positioned the textures in / textures / lores. It does not work, I put them directly with the cmod file, it still does not work in Celestia, but cmodviewer finds them and applies them.

Does somebody have an idea ?

Textures should be in "medres" folder and only in it.

Thank you Art Blos
I will try like this and then I saw the confirmation on the length of the names of textures: 8 characters maximum. (I already noticed that 3ds2cmod truncated texture names)

Toutatis, it seems to me that SoHo is in orbit around the point of Lagrange L1
In Celestia, it's Earth-L1.
It is in this orbit from 14-02-1996.

Beginning "1996 02 14"

Yes Gironde... I know... and these orbital elements from HORIZONS, for geocentric orbit... but sure, everyone can correct it how they wish... :smile:
