(Initial state) line names are blocked signatures # 1_ # 2_.
This file is placed in the catalogs/depot directory.

Code: Select all

#1_Galaxy "Messier 110:M 110:NGC 205:UGC 426:MCG 7-2-14" #1=
#2_Galaxy "M 110:*Мессье 110:Messier 110:NGC 205:UGC 426:MCG 7-2-14" #2=
{
        Type  "E5"
        RA            0.6728
        Dec          41.6853
        Distance   2.481e+06  # method: NED-1D average
        Radius          7035
        AbsMag         -15.5
        Axis    [ -0.2155  -0.8200   0.5303]
        Angle    110.4183
        InfoURL "http://simbad.u-strasbg.fr/sim-id.pl?Ident=M 110"
}


Example a national (in this example - Russian) localization:
  • Activation database using a text editor (not Word) is the change of the signature (or # 1_ # 2_) an empty place.
  • Create a copy of the source code.
  • Change the signature (# 2_)
  • Save without BOM
Result:

Code: Select all

#1_Galaxy "Messier 110:M 110:NGC 205:UGC 426:MCG 7-2-14" #1=
Galaxy "M 110:*Мессье 110:Messier 110:NGC 205:UGC 426:MCG 7-2-14" #2=

Next:
  • Move the database from folder "catalogs / depot" in "catalogs" folder.
  • We give consent for a replacement.
  • Start Celestia.
