New Sagittarius A* Stars

Post #1by TheLostProbe » 31.01.2021, 02:17

A while ago, we discovered a few more stars around Sagittarius A*, and I started making an addon for that. I then forgot about Celestia and the addon and all of my other Celestia addons have just been sitting there, in my extras-indev folder, untouched for months.
But now I'm back! And I've completed (kind of) the addon.
There is just 1 problem which is the textures don't work, I will seek help with fixing this and when I do fix it I will release that. But for now you just get the version with no textures, which means all you get is some bright white cue balls whizzing around a black hole.

Looking at Celestia's log (which appears when ~ is pressed), the textures do load; the stars look like white cueballs because the textures are bright and mostly featureless.

Anyway, good work on this, hopefully Vision will add these stars to his Milky Way center addon. (also 500th post!)
