Alright. We can just look for some interested addon makers who would like to create spacecraft

It's alright. Maybe you can at least suggest spacecraft to add

With the help of pedro_jg, I've made an addon for CHEOPS: cheops.zip

Small update to add the full orbital parameters; please re-download if you downloaded the addon in the last ~hour.

Good beginning, I hope that the model could be updated with a next version...
To compare here is the real model at Kourou (french Guyana).

Being frustrated by models with lots of materials, I've made something simpler - a fictional "solar sail" spacecraft. The model was taken from Gaia Sky. Feel free to use in fictional addons. Download: solarsail.zip

Here is an add-on for SMART-1. 3D model (and textures) is from the ESA Science Satellite Fleet downloads page, and orbital parameters are from this page.

I already had the model lying around for some time, all that was left was writing the data for it.

a new spacecraft in this post, it's been a long time. I am happy other subscribers are also getting started.
bravo pedro_jg and SevenSpheres and soon jujuapapa.

:smile: :smile: :smile:

Added after 15 minutes 41 seconds:
For my part, I reused the SohO model for SolO (Solar Orbiter). The Esa site model is not viable.
The data for the orbit comes from the Horizons site.

Hello there!
I'm glad that little by little, we are reviving the most popular topic of Celestian history
Do you know some techniques in making spacecraft and their trajectories? I'm sure some would like to know

Say hi to my first spacecraft addon:
ExoMars TGO

The ExoMars TGO spacecraft

Thanks to pedro_jg and SevenSpheres for helping me in the making of this addon.

UPDATE: Inverted the colors of the spec texture to fit the solar panels.
UPDATE 2: Increased the brightness of the model.

It works for me. Check your nearstars.stc, that should be where the SSB (Solar System Barycenter) is defined.
