Re: Using change distance command in a cel script

I don't see any way to do that with only one changedistance instruction.
The simplest way is the one that Selden proposes : cut out the journey into several parts and display a text for each part.

Re: Using change distance command in a cel script

Your script is almost correct. - You must follow the object before the changedistance command. In the print command the text is displayed duration seconds but the next command is processed immediately. You just have to invoque the printcommand before the changedistance command and specify the same d...

Re: How to display Arabic word using print method?

Hi, It looks like arabic fonts in .txf format are missing in the celestia\fonts directories. Maybe you can rebuild them following the method described here. https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Celestia/Internationalization (see "Building .txf font texture files" ) Change the "font_bold.ttf&...

Re: Separating geosynchronous satellites

For a geostationary orbit, the simplest is to define the orbit with a fixed position relative to the planet. To do this you must define - A reference frame centered on the planet - A fixed position indicating longitude, latitude and altitude of the satellite. The corresponding instructions in the ss...

Re: From the GUI Lua Edu Tools v1.2 beta 9 to Lua Universal Tools v4.0

:hi: I wonder if it is wise to add so many addons in your revamped version of Lua Edu Tools. :weirdface: Some of them are really useful. Particularly the HELP panel is a very good idea that was missing in the original interface. But some of your choices are questionable. for example Addon Space Lift...

Re: How to create a file-clone "addBox.lua" for ViDiBa?

As I had guessed, the problem was primarily a conflict between program variables. Lua edu Tools and more LUT handle a considerable number of variables and it is impossible to retain all. Except for variables that require communication between modules, all other variables should always be declared as...

Re: How to create a file-clone "addBox.lua" for ViDiBa?

I think I understand your problem but I don't really have a solution for you. You try to make another program from a previous one with the same structure. There are many reasons why two program can conflict together. Your bug description is not precise enough to figure out where does the problem com...
