Lua Universal Tools LUT-5. Update the guides of the SPACE EXPLORATION series.

Post #1by Croc » 05.06.2018, 20:38

New edition 9.09.2018

Toutatis and Gironde created dozens of add-ons with new space vehicles.
The guides for the SPACE EXPLORATION series have lost relevance. It requires fast update of the guides of the SPACE EXPLORATION series.
The update can be made by the user himself, without reinstalling the entire graphical interface or Celestia itself.
====
First, I recall the procedure for working with the Guides. If you have Lua Universal Tools v5.0 beta (LUT-5) installed, then when you turn on Celestia, the LUT-5 graphical interface is located in the upper right corner in a compact form:

Image

The green arrow indicates the [>] button, which visualizes the mini-buttons that include themed guides. Click it (step 1).
On the mini-buttons are inscriptions of 1-4 characters, indicating the theme of the guidebooks. For an inexperienced user these symbols may not be clear.
Press the [Guide] button (step 2), an information panel will appear with the decryption of the symbols on the mini-buttons.

Choose a thematic guide, for example, The Road to Space. Click on the mini [Te1] (step 3). The Road to Space guide appears: it's an interactive panel:

Guides_Step1-2-3.jpg


When you press a key, for example [Appolo-Soyuze-19], the following spacecraft will appear:

Apollo.jpg


UPDATE:

1. Copy and Unpack guidesBox.zip
2. Replace in the folder ..\lua-applications\lua_universal_tools_v5\tools file guidesBox.lua
3. Copy and Unpack config.zip (new edition 09.09.2018)
4. Replace in the folder ..\lua-applications\lua_universal_tools_v5 file config.lua
5. Restart Celestia

To be continued...

Note:
For the correct work of the Guide for the mission, the Cassini Huygens Mission install attached addons:
  • Cassini-Huygens in Solar System (NASA-ESA).zip
  • Cassini_Huygens_Landed_CMOD.zip
Other similar versions of the Cassini Huigens mission should be removed.

Note:
The guidebook uses the acceleration mode of time. To neutralize the side effect - accelerate the rotation of the model around its own axis - it is recommended to install (in the extras folder) the file ModifySpaceCrafts.ssc.

On September 28, 2013, a modification of the Guides of the Spacecraft series was completed.

The purpose of the modification is modifying the * Box.Action modules, in which the old links are replaced by references like celestia: seturl ("cel: // .....")
For more information, https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Celestia/Celx_Scrip ... a_Methods/Celx_celestia#seturl

The existing links are highlighted in blue font.

A total of 16 Travel Guides ~ 360 working links. See the screenshots:
