Minmus' Celestia Improvements

Post #1by The Minmus Derp » 24.07.2020, 14:05

Hello! This is a little "addon" that vastly improves star textures, and some other minor improvements.
please read the readme for how to properly install it, as it is not simply a "put it in the extras folder". Got that? good.
heeeeere we go!
What it does
Vastly improves textures for all star types (except white dwarfs halp pls, and R & N stars and I doubt those really ever happen in celestia anyways)
makes rings and shadows look a bit better (coming soon)
Download link
@Trolligi112477-ww for the C, S, WC, WN, and WO star textures
@nussun for the main inspiration
@FarGetaNik for O, B, A, F, G, K, M, L, and T star textures
@MrSpace43 for the White Dwarf and Neutronstar textures

All objects in this addon
