SSC help

Post #1by PlasticMan » 06.04.2007, 00:37

Just wondering if anyone would be willing to make me a SSC file for a fictional solarsystem. Last time I tryed making a solarsystem was on version 1.2.5 so im a little out of touch with how celestia works now. Not looking for anything super, (Im not real good at this anyway) I just enjoy playing on photoshop with textures! Thanks!

The basics of describing a planetary system have not changed since before v1.2.4. There are lots of new parameters one can play with, but they're all optional.

You might take a look at
http://www.lepp.cornell.edu/~seb/celest ... intro.html

The very first example there describes a very simple planetary system (sun + planet). You should be able to augment it relatively easily.

That said, there are several fictional planetary systems available on the Motherlode. You might consider downloading one of them and modifying it.
