Art Blos, how did you decide which exoplanets get which textures? (Size, temperature, etc?)

In the source database there was a classification. However, we have fewer textures than there are types of exoplanets. In the future we add more.

Great news! It's almost time for the new release! (Also congratulations to me for reaching 200 posts! But I guess that means I spend too much time on the forums :biggrin: )

Added after 12 minutes 33 seconds:
Also, I tried to get it from Janus' website, but I noticed a few things that didn't seem right. For one, the archive was only 132 MB, when it should be like 3 GB. Also, when 7zip tried to open it, it said that the file is damaged or corrupted and couldn't open it.

@SpaceFanatic64

It could be that I am not done uploading yet.
I was planning on letting ArtBlos know when I was done and it could be linked.

Currently, the 7z archive is up, and a zip version is on its way.
I always get requests for a zip version, so I am doing it ahead of time this time.
You will also notice some par2 files to repair downloads for those like me with data caps or iffy connections.

Be sure to check the dates in the filename so you get the right version and year.
I will edit this after the upload has been finished and verified.

The torrent was earlier showing 3 peers (two in Russia and one in Spain) with 100% files, download was proceeding apace :) but sadly some have fallen by the wayside and there is now only one in Russia so I hope (s)he does not go to bed lol! :)

The forum is showing 50 'guests' (earlier 65), if all of them had torrent clients it would be good :)

Exciting times,,, and in just a couple of days New Horizons will be (fingers xxed) showing us a real texture for Ultima Thule :clap:

Added after 21 minutes 6 seconds:
:cry: :cry:

Argh ! 4 peers in Russia, 1 in Uk and 1 in Spain all timed out, 1 in Russia connected but 0 B/s

grrr :)

I may have to tax @Janus' server a bit :biggrin:

The current Celestia Origin files are up on my site.
Now they are safe to download.

@BorderShed

Don't worry about taxing my server, it will live.

Thank you kind Sir :) but will my rural BritishTelecom survive, that is the question :)

I like the theory of torrent (50% complete no peers!) but sadly it lacks real-life presence so ,,,,

For me, I never use torrent because with my past experience, it's just too slow for me. I've even heard a story of someone who left a torrent running for 3 years and forgot about it until it was completed!

SpaceFanatic64,

I had the same problems with torrents when I first this addon. When I was unpacking it, the program said that it was going to 10 hours it's just easy to use the .7zp or .zip file.

Yes, I have a few of those in suspenders !

This is the problem, he left it running - - but no one else did !

[OT]
Well actually there are at least two problems, (1) it has a bad reputation for being the tool of neer'do'wells circumventing copyright and (2) we are not long out of the era when being online 24/7 was costing a lot of $
Now we can (mostly) be online 24/7 but the habit still is to switch off when we are not in attendance ? ?
[/OT]

ah ha, 21% from @Janus < you have a good pipe :)

Added after 10 minutes 18 seconds:
Ha, 4 peers in Russia 'Timed out', 1 in Russia 'Remote disconnected' and 1 in the Realm of Her Britannic Majesty also timed out ! :( sum total atm 7B/s !!

I think @Janus is going to win (29% and counting ) :biggrin:

Sorry, misunderstanding, my fault I was not clear, I am now running two 'streams' one via torrent (from various peers) and the other from you.
