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.

RBSP A and B, in charge of studying the Van Allen belt, they have the distinction of having instruments deployed 164 feet from the body of the satellite, at the end of a cable stretched by centrifugal force.

Please excuse me

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.
Model Author: Jack Higgins


Author illustrations: NASA - MSFC-0100983 - Saturn V S-IVB (Third) Stage

ssc-file is created on the basis of a similar file for Apollo 10 S-IVB 505 (Creator: Diane Neisius (Medusa))

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)
    :movetext(-3, 10)
    :attach(SpaceRaceFrame, 2, 2+14*(gg-18), 129, 5+14*18)

SpaceRace118Box = CXBox:new()
    :init(0, 0, 0, 0)
    :movetext(-2, 10)
    :text(_("Gemini 8 stowage Agena"))
    :attach(SpaceRaceFrame, 31, 2+14*(gg-18), 2, 5+14*18)

 SpaceRace118Box.Action = (function()
            local obj = celestia:find("Gemini 8 stowage")
            if not(empty(obj)) then
               tdb_dt = celestia:utctotdb(1966, 3, 16, 16, 41, 00)
    end) ()

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


Added after 29 minutes 13 seconds:

'Agena D Gemini8' in the same file ssc que 'Gemini 8 stowage'

Added after 6 minutes 58 seconds:

attention the 2 versions are grouped in the same post

the first zip in the post is the good, the second is the bad

I start again with the good version of Gemini
because everything is mixed on the forum :boxing:

the correct modified file is called "modified Program"

we'll have to see why the "merge with last message" option reappears after a preview

Thank you! This will come in handy. :smile:

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?
Goofy :smile:

Added after 13 minutes 45 seconds:
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.
Goofy :oops:

Goofy, you are right: :clap:

504-512 are serial numbers, and not an S-IVB modification

  • S-IVB-504 Apollo 9
  • S-IVB-505 Apollo 10
  • S-IVB-506 Apollo 11
  • S-IVB-507 Apollo 12
  • S-IVB-508 Apollo 13
  • S-IVB-509 Apollo 14
  • S-IVB-510 Apollo 15
  • S-IVB-511 Apollo 16
  • S-IVB-512 Apollo 17

Model Author: Jack Higgins was wrong. :think:

Ah yes Goofy
but I think I have found another model.
I will see.
