In Celestia Origin v.7 add-on (12/30/2018) the file solarsys.ssc has specificity for the following objects:

  • Dione
  • Tethys
  • Rhea
  • Iapetus
  • Miranda
  • Ariel
  • Umbriel
  • Titania
  • Oberon
  • Proteus

Given this factor, the base of locations has been modified.
In addition, extra files have been removed from the database.
The modified database in archive form is called Locations_mod_05-01-2019.zip.
It is included in the attachment to the previous post instead of the file Locations.zip.

Additions to the basic complete LUT-5.2. Additional graphic and textual information.

In the basic configuration there is one album images_planet. Here is an example of additional information:

MoreInfo-2.jpg


In the screenshot, the red arrow shows the [MoreInfo.] To include additional information.

You can connect additional albums to the GUI:
  • galaxies illustration images_galaxy - 300
  • nebula illustrations images_nebula - 119
  • illustrations of clusters of stars images_cluster - 180
  • other illustrations images_other - 9

Installation Instructions:

  • Download Album (albums) and unzip
  • Move to folder .. \lua-applications\lua_universal_tools_v5\

Albums can be replenished with new illustrations.
Illustration management is provided in the infoImage.lua file, which is located in the .. \ lua-applications \ lua_universal_tools_v5 \ infos \ folder.
At the end of the infoImage.lua file is a sample code for a new illustration.

Additional text information is stored:
  • in English in the infoText.lua file in the folder .. \lua-applications\lua_universal_tools_v5\infos\
  • in Russian in the infoText_ru.lua file in the folder\lua-applications\lua_universal_tools_v5\locale\ru\
At the end of the infoText.lua file (infoText_ru.lua) is a sample code for new information.

Note. In the basic configuration, a typo was found in the infoText.lua file, due to which the "text information" panel was not included.
The attachment contains the revised and updated version of infoText.lua.

Installation Instructions:

  • Download infoText.zip and unzip
  • Move file infoText.lua to .. \lua-applications\lua_universal_tools_v5\infos\
