Came across Celestia only a couple of weeks ago and could not believe what a wonderful tool it was. I ran the built-in demo and then tried a few examples such as the solar system tour in amazement. However I have so far failed to install a single add-on.
When I installed the latest version of Celestia, two empty directories ("extras" and "scripts") were created in:

/Library/Application Support/CelestiaResources

I have followed the instructions of every add-on and placed its files and directories
where I was told to no avail -- they are simply ignored.

The program itself runs fine and faithfully displays all the built-in textures. I would be very grateful of someone could provide me with a step-by-step example.

Is there a forum that deals with Mac issues only?

Many thanks in advance

Ben

Hi Ben... you will have to put your add ons in the applications resources folder.

On my mac it's Applications/Celestia 1.6.0/Celestia.app - show package contents/Contents/Resources/CelestiaResources/extras-standard

Most of the add-ons will unzip to a folder which you put in here.
regards...bh.
