Hi Toutatis and Gironde. In order to obtain maximum from the launch vehicles you already added and/or will add to Celestia, if I can I suggest you to try to add Launch locations, as you have done with the Proton-M model. :clap:
I see that in "Orbiter addons" there are practically all the launch complexes used worlwide.

Just for an example, here is the Delta IV Launch Complex 37

or Shuttle's LC39A+B Launch Pads

OK, this is a huge (82.43 MB) model, but it looks like the real thing, doesn't it?
I think this could be a real challenge for anyone, anyway....
I know nothing about 3D modelling, so I don't know if this is possible or if it's a too complex and difficult task, but I hope it could be done by you... :help:
Thank you for all your work, appreciated.
Bye

Hi,

Great work for space probes. :clap:

Sorry, but I dont' see the interest to make rockets which never go into space... with celestia :sad:

Goofy,

All the files found on this kind of site are not necessarily usable. There is a lot of 3D format and not all 3D software is able to import them. On 3D Warehouse there are Sketchup, Colloda, KMZ Google files, ... on Orbiter they are .msh files. Apart from .dae (Colloda) which is importable into Blender, the others I do not know how to do.

Hi Goofy... Yes, it's possible... I can convert all .msh files from "Orbiter" to 3ds files which are supported in Celestia... but need to combine separated parts of models and make texturing them to create a ready model for Celestia... so just need a time and desire to work... See... I made Delta-4Heavy.. Titan-4B... Hayabusa-2 ... Formosat-5 from the separated files I taken from "Orbiter"... :wink:

and I do not use Blender... Wings 3D and converters only... :smile:

Hi Toutatis.
Thank you for your positive reply about my request for Launch pads from Orbiter, and I believe it's not an easy task, but if I can help you with textures (sorry, I'm unable to help in modelling), I'm here.
Bye.

I do not have confidence that the updated model corresponds to the original.
I did not see the original ... :think:

I'm working on:

Atlas SLV-3 Agena-D
Atlas LV3B (Mercury-Atlas 6 Friendship 7)
Mercury-Redstone MR3

I set the orientation before uploading

As I can not straighten rockets, I still submit the addons. Maybe someone will arrive at something acceptable.

I think there should be a landmark well positioned on the ground with a horizontal and a vertical surface.
The orientation function only works on one axis and I do not think we can put the function twice with a different axis.

:sad: :help:

Here is the Kaguya (Selene) satellite launched by Japan on 14-09-2007 with a H-IIA 2022 F13 rocket towards the Moon. For 2 years he flew over the Moon and crashed on 10-06-2009 at 18:25 at E80.4, S65.5.
The ssc file describes its main orbit around the moon. On 01-02-2009 the orbit has been lowered to 50km.

Kaguya was carrying 2 other satellites: OKINA relay satellite and VRAD satellite. They were dropped at the beginning of lunar insertion. Okina served as relay to the Kaguya transmission.
