Toutatis-2 got a Sampled Trajectory in Celestia... yersterday, I made my first own XYZV-orbit in Celestia... Now it possible to try to make an orbits (using XYZV-file...) for some Soviet space missions to Moon, Venus, Mars... and of course for the Space missions which the data no in HORIZONS for others countries... So I was busy to learn how to make these kind of orbits in Celestia... Big thanks to Brianj and the ORBITER...

@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 think that it's not a problem now... I can create these models and XYZV-trajectories for these spacecrafts...
I have a book called "The mechanics of space flight" it's will help with info...

Project Apollo recompiled to simplify installation...Credit goes to all its Original Authors and Croc (see ReadMe.txt)
Set retrograde orbits to lunar missions to properly simulate Earthrise
Added missions Apollo 4, 5, and 9 (beta)

Thanks @DaveBowman2001

I have tried to do an installation from install notes and it still seems terribly confusing.
First, I can not find the "Moon Collections" addon. I downloaded "Moon missions" addon, but I do not know if you are referring to it, since it does not contain the "EC-Apollo" folder, for example.

I tend to be tenacious and I hope that with patience, I will achieve it, but Not it be more practical to create a complete package with everything necessary ?, as it is done with other addons.

It's time to update InSight, MarCO-A and MarCO-B :think:

I have InSight in Spice orbit format. I will try to add two MarCOs spacecraft. They are in Horizons/JPL so it is to do ;)

Here is InSight (SPICE orbit) and MarCO-A and MarCO-B (xyzv orbits) (models by me :wink: )

Also I add a second texture (landing_sites.jpg) made I think by Emily Lakdawalla

To work, please download de436.bsp from ftp://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/eph/planets/bsp/
and put to data folder.
new spk orbital data to InSight are in:
https://naif.jpl.nasa.gov/pub/naif/INSIGHT/kernels/spk

It's don't work in Celestia 1.7 x64 systems but in Windows 32 bit is OK!

So "Moon missions" is its name :biggrin: :biggrin:

@Diigg, I was thinking that recompiling older addons is illegal unless I have the permission of the original creators, but since it seemed that most of them are no longer active for a long time, that would be impossible, plus like you said, maybe installation of Part 1 is very complicated.

The .SSC files inside are the only ones created by myself

Anyways, thanks for the suggestions! I'll do it for next old refurbished addons that are too complicated to install :biggrin: :biggrin:

Okay...

EC left under a cloud a while ago and (I think) withdrew his models...

There may be an issue with permissions.

Best to look out, thats all.

Uff I made it conversion to cmod :)


OSIRIS-REx Arrival to Bennu (3-18 Dec 2018)

I use SPICE (bsp,bc,tsc,tpc,tf) files from NAIF/NASA
Model of OREX is from NASA 3D models converted to cmod.

Soft is Celestia 1.7 64bit

Some NASA website templates are difficult to convert with the usual 3D software.

Why not use excellent Toutatis' model ?

I appeal to the developers of spacecraft in this thread. Put all your current creations in one place, for example on Google Drive. Now it is VERY UNCOMFORTABLE to find latest version from the heap of versions. Or to search for a specific spacecraft. Let administrator publish general link in the first message.
