I would like to start this topic because a lot of older links are dead or they are a little bit chaotic.

Do not forget Seldens List of Resources, it's a wealth of information.

But a lot of its links are obsolete :( Someday I'll have to locate one of those "broken links" utilities and try to update it.

Great Idea!

  • CMOD export script for anim8or:

  • t00fri's texture tools (Normal Maps and Virtual Textures):

"cmodview" in the source builds just fine
-- my fork
https://github.com/JohnVV/MyCelestiaBuild/tree/master/celestia/src/tools/cmod

it also imports UV maped obj meshes ( including spacecraft ) , so there is no real need for the very old anam8tor or even older blender 2.49 plugin
