CEL Renderflags "partialtrajectories"

Post #1by jeffmack » 06.08.2012, 03:42

What does the "partialtrajectories" parameter of the CEL "renderflags" statement do? I can't seem to find it anywhere. Thanks.

It's one of the new features planned for 1.7. By default, an orbital path is a continuous arc going through the orbiting object and all the way around its parent object. "Partial trajectories" tells Celestia to draw only part of that path, making it look like it's trailing along behind the orbiting body.
