Celestia - Explore the universe
Authored by: area51 on Nov 08, '05 01:14:45PM

When I go to the International Space Station (ISS) in Celestia, the Earth rendering looks really bad.. I know there are ways to fix this by downloading higher resolution Earth textures but I have no idea how to go about doing this in Celestia. Has anyone done this (in particular the blue marble NASA textures)?

To get more textures (greater resolution, night, clouds, etc) you can go to the Celestia Motherlode site as pointed in the original posting. Plenty of textures, 3D models, ships (some are truly amazing), even whole systems lies there. Some files are purely fantasy while others are based on newly discovered celestial bodies and stuff and are made by very serious people.

I installed the 2001 "discovery" package. Any idea how to find the ship? I _think_ I did everything right...

Oh, I forgot. To get the earth to show "nicely" when viewed from ISS, you'll have to put an amazingly high texture on the earth that will probably put your Mac to a crawl. These textures exists put you have been warned :)

But, by all means, feel free to experiment. ;)

Yeah it would be cool to see this in action. :)
