Toutatis, do you have any preview pictures of Gaia in Celestia? I'm curious as to how it looks.

DaveBowman2001,

There must be a problem in the ssc file for Gemini.
Indeed, Gemini 10,11 and 12 remain invisible while GATV-5005, GATV-5006 and GATV-5001A are clearly visible.

Is there no mistake in the path of Gemini and with Center and Observer?

@gironde, that's because I put the last three Gemini missions' (plus Gemini 8) OrbitFrames addressed to their Agena Target Vehicles, so that I could dock them easily in the .SSC, and in the purpose of having the ATVs continue orbiting the Earth long after the Geminis have concluded their missions :biggrin: :biggrin:

As for the Center and Observer, they are all based with existing orbital parameters from NASA

Not in Celestia yet... still working with texture for GAIA model... (original model with textures from ORBITER)

Added after 8 minutes 2 seconds:
I think that I will make modernization of this model... sometimes I don"t like the quality of models from ORBITER... remember what I made with models of VIKING...

Well most pre-2010 Orbiter models have that kind of quality you saw @toutatis...but it has improved significantly from 2010 onwards. An example of this is the Skylab from Orbiter is way more superior in graphics than that of Celestia (but since its creator intended his model for animations, the mesh is on its launch configuration)

I'll provide comparison pictures later :biggrin: :biggrin:

Project Apollo (Part 1).zip
Apollo 7-8, 11, and Skylab 1-4 (Requires Croc's "Space Race Collection" and "Moon Collection")
(4.33 KiB) Downloaded 5 times

Thanks for the contributions.
Could you give more instructions about the correct installation of these addons?
They have to go inside the folder "Space Race Collection" or "Moon Collection"?
You only say that this contribution is needed (which I have downloaded) but you do not say which is the correct way for everything to work well.
Thank you

Sorry for the confusion, anyways here's how to install Project Apollo (Part 1).zip:

Installation:
1. Open the SpaceRace.ssc and DELETE EVERY SINGLE CODE representing the Apollo 11/Skylab missions to prevent viewing conflicts

PS. Also delete there the "Gemini+Agena" and "Agena" thread to prevent conflict with Project Gemini (Missions) addon


2. Place all SSC files to the EC-Apollo folder found inside the Moon Collection

3. For Skylab and Lunar Surface ops, move all these files from the Space Race Collection into EC-Apollo:
MODELS
- crater.3ds
- skylab.3ds
- astro1.cmod
- astro2.cmod
- usflag.cmod

TEXTURES/MEDRES
- _auto_1.jpg
- _auto_13.jpg
- _auto_30.jpg
- _auto_32.jpg
- _auto_33.jpg
- _auto_35.jpg
- 4__Defau.jpg
- mon.jpg


I'll provide a proper folder in the next update with the currently missing missions :biggrin:
- AS-201
- AS-202
- AS-203
- Apollo 4
- Apollo 5
- Apollo 6
- Apollo 9
- Apollo 10
- Apollo 12
- Apollo 13 (will attempt to create an .XYZV trajectory)
- Apollo 14
- Apollo 15
- Apollo 16
- Apollo 17

I modified GAIA model, but still have not finished it... Today I prepared GAIA add-on... with two versions of orbit... You can use version you want...

Added after 4 minutes:
With time I will finish work with this model...

Thanks admin! but I still work with this model to make it better... :smile: :smile: :smile:

These days I trying to make a custom orbits in Celestia using XYZV-files... I guess I will make an own XYZV-trajectories for spacecrafts in Celestia soon... right now I can make an eleptical orbits only... where the Sun or the planets is the central body... I want to launch the spacecrafts at an orbits around the Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune... Venus, Mercury, Pluto, Ceres and Makemake... :biggrin:

Hello,

For the Russian program, Luna, we have mainly models of landers, but few models of satellite carriers. Is it possible to find addons of these?

@toutatis have unreleased models of Luna 1/2, Luna 3, Luna 9 (cruise), and Luna 10 already in the past few months, and I am attempting to create trajectories of them to Celestia (no data available anywhere online)

As of now, I'm only successful with Luna 10

I have no Luna cruiser but Luna lander or crash site (URSS flag).
maybe some landers was both the cruiser
