Linuxman, the model is not that cool for Celestia. I'm presently building one that will be a bit more accurate and much lighter. The good point of this model are the textures, and particularly the normal maps... (if you see what I mean!
On my computer it run between 25 to 30FPS with very 85MBdds texture for for earth, moon , mars and clouds.
For the texture i don't resize them for the moment, some of them have a 1600 x 800 resolution.
Original texture for the master solar panels are very good if you have a closed view i will try to map the reverse side
They furnished bumbmap, reflective map and specular map, can theese map be used in celestia?
I try to associate bumpmap and normalmap with gimp ( for node 1 and columbus as you see in the last picture )
I have not have a look for optimisation of theeses model, for the moment i try to assemble them corectly.
If there is million of polygon to delete, i will not have this courage...
Waiting for your model as Bob
That is one detailed model. I downloaded Linuxman's version just to
see what it would do on my system, and it displays itself just fine on
my Vista machine. It does take a while for all of the textures and
model components to load into Celestia, but the end result is beautiful.
Looking forward to Christophe's optimized version.
Thanks very much for this add-on. Very cool.
Take care, Bob
Hello bob !
These next days i have to do and place corectly the separate meshes for ISS ,and if my friend Gilles could finish some calculation for my Gagarine pad and will try a first pack for this other addon.
I'am searching information on the canadian iss armcause i'am in total confusion about this if someone can help ..
I like to make a good texture for white tissue covering some of the elements assembled iss.
the textures are all messed up on your model. The model itself runs fine on my system, but the textures are badly mapped.
Mapping texture is not my speciality, i just change the name of the original texture to be corect for the moment i have just map the ATV model with esa texture and the JEM.
Thank tou to have testing this model, do you use cmod model ?
