Selden,
jpg images do not work in cmodview unlike png.
but they work apparently with the use of the cmod in Celestia.
It's a design problem because you work blindly.

The J002E3 Apollo remnant. Initially reported as a new asteroid, and was discovered by Bill Yeung on September 3, 2002. Further examination revealed that the object was not an asteroid but the S-IVB third stage of the Apollo 12 Saturn V rocket.

Hello,

I redid the 3D files of Gemini7 and 8 as well as the upper stage Agena D used on the rocket Thor and Atlas.
In 1966, the mission of Gemini 8 was to dock with a target floor Agena D.
The crew of Gemini 8 was Neil Armstrong and David Scott.

The new ssc files are organized and renamed to organize this space rendezvous on March 16, 1966 16h41mn02s until March 17, 1966 3h32mn28s.

For users of LUT5, you need to edit SpaceRaceBox and rename the texts and targets for Gemini 8 that I called Gemini 8 stowage Agena for the button and Gemini 8 stowage for the target.
in the old add-on, Agena was declared with a "component" class that does not exist; I replaced it with "spacecraft".

example :

Code: Select all

-- ====================
SpaceRace018Box = CXBox:new()
    :init(0, 0, 0, 0)
    :bordercolor(cbubordoff)
    :textfont(smallfont)
    :textcolor(cbutextoff)
    :textpos("left")
    :movetext(-3, 10)
    :text(_("USA"))
    :movable(false)
    :active(false)
    :attach(SpaceRaceFrame, 2, 2+14*(gg-18), 129, 5+14*18)

SpaceRace118Box = CXBox:new()
    :init(0, 0, 0, 0)
    :bordercolor(cbubordoff)
    :textfont(smallfont)
    :textcolor(specificAddon)
    :textpos("left")
    :movetext(-2, 10)
    :text(_("Gemini 8 stowage Agena"))
    :movable(false)
    :active(true)
    :attach(SpaceRaceFrame, 31, 2+14*(gg-18), 2, 5+14*18)

 SpaceRace118Box.Action = (function()
    return
        function()
            local obj = celestia:find("Gemini 8 stowage")
            celestia:select(obj)
            if not(empty(obj)) then
               tdb_dt = celestia:utctotdb(1966, 3, 16, 16, 41, 00)
               celestia:settime(tdb_dt)
               obs:chase(obj)
               obs:goto(obj)
               celestia:settimescale(25)
             end
        end
    end) ()


For others, you'll have to manipulate Celestia's clock to be on the right date and time, and see this appointment.

mysteries of modeling!


I wanted to change the appearance of S-IVB 507 from Croc through a cmod file.


attached, a real photo, a screenshot of Croc, a screenshot of me and a screenshot of cmodview


Croc use :
Mesh "j002e3.3ds"
Texture "j002e3.bmp"


Me use :
Mesh "j002e3.cmod"
# Texture "j002e3.bmp"

the texture is in cmod (see photo cmodview)
the result is the same, black band down to the link of being at the top

Hi Gironde.
As I told I know nothing about 3d modelling, but I like to check what I can, so I ruotated 180° the Apollo bmp texture, checked it in cmodview, and it was ruotated 180° as it has not to be really.
So I opened the Apollo 12 in Celestia and the result is OK now:

Apollo 12 Mod.JPG
Now it looks OK...


Just a thought, may be the texture is wrongly ruotated 180° in the original 3d file?
Bye.
Goofy :smile:

Added after 13 minutes 45 seconds:
Hi.
Anyway, about Apollo S-IVB stage, the model is wrong, because the real thing had a single J-2 engine, not two like in this model, as shown too in Croc's image.
Sorry, but is is so.
My two cents.
