I downloaded from the celestia motherload the model for a imperial star destroyer and a X-wing. When i opened the .zip files inside the readme files said that i needed to download and install Thomas Guilpain's 'Star Wars' addon first. I downloaded it and istalled it, but i still cannot see anything in celestia ( no x-wing :P ). What have i done wrong?

I use version 1.4.1 of celestia, is this the problem? Maybe the "star wars addon" needs a earlier version?

Hi Lothar,you need to make sure that star HD 143761 is visible in Celestia,I'm pretty sure its in the version you have.To find it press enter/return than type in HD 143761 (including the middle space) then press enter again.You should now see HD 143761 in the top left of your screen.Press g to goto this star,then use the navigation menu to find the planets and spaceships,cheers,Jestr

Thanks a lot! :D :D

Allow me to add that ive downloaded your earth texture ( mark I ) and although it runs a bit slowly ( the HD works frantically when i zoom into earth ... i suppose its time to improve my PC :) ) it looks fantastic! Thanks a lot again :D

Hi jestr,

I cannot find the HD 143761 in my Celestia. Version 1.6.1 (Prerelease) for macOS.

Is there a catalog that I should first download and install so that HD 143761 appears in my Celestia? Thank you!
