About Celestia Image Quality

Post #1by LBV 2012-26 » 16.04.2019, 13:47

Celestia EP developed by Alexell adds very beautiful vision star flare and new orbit style. :clap: This is a huge improvement in Celestia's image quality. And the screenshots of Celestia EP are also used on the homepage of Celestia's website. Why not keep it in the new version? (Attach some very beautify screenshots of some plugins made by Celestia friends)

Well, I think they did put it in there but somehow, my computer renders it as this:

Unless I have a different or weak graphics card, it could be the problem that you mentioned: That it's not properly there in 1.7.0

Original EP patch is lost I suppose. We plan to implement a better way but we need a texture.

I also keep the patch for Celestia EP.
I don't find any texture of star flare from Celestia EP.exe and Celestia's folder. It seems like program generates.

Added after 3 minutes 49 seconds:

My HD 3000 graphics card runs Celestia EP, the star flare will turn into a white square, I think this problem may be similar to your problem.

Oh I had that same problem too, if you switch "Star Type" to dots, and not add opengl32.dl into your file

Could you share it with me?

Chris proposed a better and faster way to do the same but using a texture.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to download from any of that links as they require Baidu registration. Could you attach only the patch here?

Very sorry. :sad: I'm useing iPhone, its operating system is iOS. As a result, I was unable to upload the file. I may wait until I use the computer before I can try to upload the attachment directly.

I'm wondering if the star rendering can be added - it's been a long time, but those stars still look amazing.

On another note I did manage to find the patch torrent for Celestia EP.

I would like to see the return of the diffraction grating.
Much more visually appealing - could be toggled on/off, similar to how it toggled with the "Points" mode in Alexell's 1.7.
