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

Thank you !
I have finded it in nearstar.stc but his definition was :
Barycenter "Solar System Barycenter:SSB"

In ExoMars, I have modified :
OrbitFrame { EclipticJ2000 { Center "Solar System Barycenter" } }

and now it works !

:smile: :hi:

Added after 7 minutes 7 seconds:
an other subject : my addon "Glonass GPS System.ssc"

I discovered an error:
"Cosmos 2443: 2008-046C" "Sol / Earth"
it is necessary to put :
"Cosmos 2444: 2008-046C" "Sol / Earth"
otherwise there are 2 Cosmos 2443

:smile:

Added after 9 minutes 27 seconds:
Bravo to Gurren Lagann for ExoMars TGO

your model is really clearer.

Hey all, great to see you again! I've gotten the CMOD program to work (it's been so long that I don't even remember the name), so hopefully now I can create addons and contribute.

Hi,

Hi there! I'm MrSpace43, though I also go by Planetkid32. I've been into Astronomy since I was 5 or 6 and have started making planetary textures back in late 2016. I'm also a 3D animator who makes high quality animations in Cinema 4D. I'm even currently working on a fictional planetary system called the "Onis System."

OMG, kids haven't humor... :razz:
Quick for the next spacecrafts well done with real textures...

Your life is beginning for learning all good things... :biggrin:

to complete my previous topic, here are the fleet of satellites:
NAVSTAR (US GPS) 34 objects
Starlink (from SpaceX) - 1st fleet -- 59 objects
GSAT (Indian communication) 21 objects

To the .ssc files I attach to the archive the .cmod file which is a generic and to put in Celestia / models. And also the lua tables for these satellites.
In lua tables, I have other parameters than Croc because I use another version of Vidiba, but the list of objects remains compatible. The Vidiba module of Croc will not read the new parameters but only the objects.

The 8 files uploaded bring 537 satellites into play. SpaceX plans 12,000 satellites by 2025. We can understand the opinion of scientists who talk about pollution of space. What about observations by terrestrial telescopes? Currently there are about 2000 satellites in orbit.

I also made the fleet of satellites for the Web: Oneweb, and I took over the NOAA meteorological satellites by adding the n ° 1 to 13 and the last, the 20. These satellites had a fairly short useful life are still in orbit.

Vidiba :
in Vidiba, adding lines in the box has the effect of shortening the box cursor. To remedy this effect, you can enlarge the box by modifying its number of lines displayed in config.lua section Vidiba
ViDiBa_list_nlines
Currently, I have 138 lines in the box and my ViDiBa_list_nlines parameter is at 30. We would have to find how to make the cursor height fixed regardless of the number of lines but it is a fairly complex module to understand. :think:

The first custom spacecraft of mine:
The HAMS spacecraft!
HAMS, or the High-Altitude Mars Surveyor, is a custom spacecraft i came up, with a launch date in 2013.
After cruising towards Mars, the HAMS spacecraft inserts itself into a initial, low Mars orbit, for a total of 1 week. This orbit will serve as a test phase for the Outer Martian Moon Twin Search Cameras (the OMMO-TiSCs), which will attempt to detect any outer Martian moons at an altitude of over 50 thousand km.
After the 1 week testing period has passed, the spacecraft will cruise towards periapsis, and do an Holmann Transfer burn, using the Steven Hawking Ion Propulsion (SHIP) engine. HAMS will insert itself into a near-circular orbit, and will orbit Mars between 600 and 1200 Mm (600 thousand to 1.2 million km) above its surface, for 10 years. Just after the transfer burns had finished, the Martian Magnetometer (MarMag) will activate, observing, studying, and analysing the distant parts of Mars's magnetic field.
HAMS would had detected, at least, 5-10 outer Martian moons during the 10 year period.
After the 10-year period has passed, in the mid-2020s, HAMS will insert itself into a high inclination, even more distant, and unstable orbit around Mars, going up to 3 million km from Mars. Its orbital lifespan is a little less than 3 years, so to avoid space debris, in mid-2027, over 13 years and a half years after the mission began, and 2.5 years after entering the unstable orbit, HAMS will execute one last burn, and destroy itself in the Martian atmosphere, while narrowly avoiding the Martian surface, to avoid contaminating any possible life in the red planet.

interesting work but the .xyzv file must be too large because the execution of celestia is enormously slowed down.

Sorry if I'm a bit late with this reply, but I've only just discovered this...and it is fantastic!
I created the Mariner 10 model many years ago using anim8or, but I had no orbital data for the spacecraft except for fly-by dates and distances.
I decided to use the orbit of Mercury and alter it to use for Mariner 10. After a lot of trial and error I managed to get one fairly accurate fly-by of Mercury. :biggrin:
It's great to see the model has now got the trajectory it deserved.
Many thanks Toutatis for your great work.

Hello Bob

Hope you're keeping well during these coronavirus times.

Had to get an install of Celestia on my new laptop...and it's great to see so many new and updated add-ons.

It's going to take me a while to sort through them all....but I mustn't forget the space shuttle missions :biggrin:
