You have a cone on the Earth. John's test modes are simple, without colors or anything else. But they are visible.

Not on my system. I haven't tried the win build. This is linux qt version.

Just grabbed the 18sco dyson sphere.
Using with current personal build of commit 5475, greeking disabled & asterisms brightened, no other changes.

I put the ssc in extras.
The 3ds in models.
The textures in textures/medres.
Here is what I see when I go to 18 Sco

Once inside the diameter there is a light source, but no texture, and nothing except white and the star visible.
A single off center light source is present, which I believe is aligned with rotation.

I don't get what's your problem, you have a cone, exactly as in 1.6.1.

I don't know either. I downloaded john71's problem files to test if they were visible. A black cone is visible, What is it supposed to look like. I guess you got a cone also with a test on 1.6.1.

cartrite, The cone and the sphere should be BLACK, because it has no texture at all.

The original problem was that the cmod files were totally transparent or invisible.

If you see anything, even a black silhouette, it is good. It works then.

This post has nothing to do with your current discussion but concerns version 1.7.0 in progress.

In 1.6.1, the contextual menu of the stars (right click) makes it possible to see and go towards the planets which revolve around the star; it's the same thing between a planet and its moons. I regret that there is not a reverse command of the same type to the 'parent' object: from a planet to its star, from a moon to its planet, ...
The planets of the Solar System, we know them, at least I hope so, but the exoplanets are called all b, c, d, or e and after a while we do not know where we are. A simple command back to the star would be really nice.

Sounds reasonable and easy to implement. https://github.com/CelestiaProject/Celestia/issues/279

Considering the old bugs: the new build works just fine! :clap:

New bug: in the qt version (64 bit) partial trajectories are not working...

In the vanilla VS version fading orbits work.

This is from a three hour old vanilla build of commit 5482 I just did.

Do I need to look at a toggle to turn fading orbits on and off in the non qt version?


Janus.

EDIT: Just grabbed celestia-bin-win32_1.7.0~git20190503+06ca2c5.7z from https://dl.bintray.com/celestia/celestia-builds/ and tried it out.
Fading orbits are working in it.
Note: that archive is just the x86 executables, you will need to copy config and data files to use it.

EDIT2: 64-bit works as well.

Hmm, I have misunderstood you. Actually Qt version should work at least they work in GNU/Linux, I'll try to check what's wrong.

I've checked both native and qt versions under wine and fading orbits are working.

New database is generally implemented. But to work it need a working octree. And octree is still somewhat not working...

Lafuente_Astronomy, I will continue to update the database when I have time and when other Celestia Origin members can help me. I'm busy now...
