Thanks toutatis! I didn't notice any visual defects at first.

Added after 8 hours 53 minutes:
Also, speaking of ICESat, a different model I found on the NASA 3D Resource.

Hi guys... Currently I working with ICON spacecraft model... want to ask you, which foil is better to use... silver or gold or?

Toutatis, I suggest using silver foil because that's how it's depicted on it's website.

Toutatis, if you have the 2 textures, you have to put them both. Everyone will be able to choose what he believes to be the right one.

Okay, SpaceFanatic64... thanks...

Okay, Gironde... thanks... but there is no textures in original model... the most of textures for the most models (especially for models from NASA resourse) I made by myself... but I will prepare... ok

BepiColombo add-on by Toutatis... the model and textures from ESA... I corrected something in CMODVIEW only... XYZV- file by Toutatis by the data from HORIZONS(NASA)... trajectory step 3 hours for interplanetary cruise... and step 10 minutes when spacecraft near the Earth, Venus and Mercury (flyby)... SSC-file by Toutatis...

Thanks Toutatis!


BTW - Croc, can you make a zip file for all crafts as of now?

Gurren Lagann, I don't think that will be possible. The file size might be too large to post.

My collection of spacecraft published on 09/29/2018.

After that I did not update the collection, as I was updating the guidebooks.

Gurren Lagann, You can add to collection of spacecraft, new items, published after 09/29/2018. :smile:

According to the images that we can see on the official website, it seems that the silver texture is more realistic.

We are only 25 days from the landing of the Insight probe on Mars.
@Toutatis Is it possible from your model to make a separation of the different phases of the landing?

Yes, Diigg... it's possible... but currently I building the GAIA model... and... I finished work with ICON model and add-on two days ago...

OK thanks @toutatis
The two new models look very good. :clap:
