Nice work with the Cassini model. I assuming your creating this rerelease because I noticed some parts that looked like they needed to be smoothed out.

Also with new, better looking textures. Woohoo! :smile:

Fantastic models!. Thank you :clap:

A doubt. I saw that your model of the probe "Wind" does not include the xyz data that published @gironde, although on the other hand, it extends until the year 2030.

Want to see the new model of the Cassini probe. It looks very good!.
Currently I have installed the repack that made @Gironde. The new model is only for the Cassini probe or also for all phases of the mission?

Greetings and thank you for your effort and share it with us.

for all phases... 3 models...

Greetings and thank you for your effort and share it with us.
You are welcome Diigg...

but about WIND... I still think...

I put you back in download the WIND addon which includes the last model of Toutatis and my ssc file
xyz file: from 17-11-1994 to 13-12-2018
data LOCATOR mass center Earth
delay between 2 readings: 1 day

I added a Timeline for the post-file period xyz until 01-01-2030


Added after 7 minutes 14 seconds:

Added after 27 minutes 36 seconds:
Some views of BepiColombo.
Launch may be on 19-10-2018

I am waiting for the opinion of SpaceFanatica64 because it is he who discovered the 3D files.
Maybe he is preparing his addon!

orbite red : mass center Earth
orbite yellow : mass center Sun
the data of HORIZONS are the same, just the mass center is modified in the 2 extractions on the site.

2 ssc files: BepiColombo MCS (sun) and BepiColombo MCS (earth)

Thanks @Gironde

Edited the repack of @gironde with the new models of @Toutatis. Wonderful!

Diigg, in order for the Cassini addon to work, you must download the older one listed on the forum earlier. Then replace the textures and models with the new ones.

Thank you. @toutatis for Cassini model, but
No .ssc file, no data files?...

Gironde, can you release the BepiColombo addon above? For my version, I'm going to use the orbit in yellow because it looks far less crazy than the red one.

Here is the addon on BepiColombo whose flight is precise.

3D files are extracted from the Cosmographia packs. I converted them to cmod. The data files come from HORIZONS with a step of 1 days. They are well on predictable coordinates and not real data because the machine is not gone yet.

There are 2 models ssc: 1 with the Earth as mass center and 1 other with Le Soleil as mass center. As the names of the spacecraft is different in each, you can use either one or the other or the 2.

The version (earth) draws a trajectory seen from the Earth as the passage of time. The positions in space are exactly the same in both cases. the orbit rotates like the Earth as time passes and finally the position of the satellite follows the trajectory with the Sun as a mass center. There are 2 different colors of orbit according to the version which makes it possible to follow them more easily.

But it is certain that the orbit (sun) will remain the orbit of reference.

For MPO and MMO, their elliptical orbit around Mercury is calculated based on the PericenterDistance predicted by mission scientists. The actual date of their final orbit will only be known in 7 years. The value of eccentricity is purely fictional.

The MTM carrier's orbit is not known and will not be known until MMO and MPO are released. So the BepiColombo mission is a business to follow.

If there are no delays, then BepiColombo should be launching tomorrow!
