Display custom data

Post #1by lastant » 24.02.2019, 13:57

Is it somehow possible to display somewhere custom data, for example object's current distance to Sun or its current velocity, acceleration etc? For instance in the top left or bottom left corner as text, or to color-code the orbit line.

With CELX scripting this should be possible.

lastant,

in the Lua Universal Tools GUI (Lua Edu Tools) there is a KEPLERIAN PARAMETERS tool.
Perhaps there is some data in it. Examine the tool code (version of Lua Edu Tools). Create new algorithms for new parameters.

Basically, celestia:print, but Croc provided a better variant with Lua Edu Tools.
