Constellations Drawings

Hi,  I was wondering if there is a way to add some kind of equirectangular texture with constellations drawings (such as Hevelius and from other cultures) as in Stellarium.  I saw a parameter in main-user.cfg such as  ShowConstelDrawings     false // constellation drawings Of course I immediately tr...

Is there a way to program orbit of a ship to L2?

Thank you for that. I had tried that putting the object directly in that orbit but somehow Space Engine recalculated the orbit and since period is 1 year it was calculating semimajor axis to be 1 UA and was putting the JWST inside Earth, as you mentionned in a Keplerian way.  But you gave me a great...

Is there a way to program orbit of a ship to L2?

Hi,  I'm working on a mod of JWST. I already got the 3D model but I'm wondering how to put orbit parameter so that it stays close to L2 lagrangian point, Orbital parameters are generally defined with one gravitational reference and works fine in most cases but L2 is just one of these point where the...

New Horizons

Updated the link here and the workshop project. I updated the textures of the gold foil to make it more shiny/reflective. It also now lies in  the Real pack which already contains other spacecrafts instead of Probes.

Camera path editor addition ?

OK, that's right. Sorry, I just got confused by the fact that the points counter doesn't reinitialize when you click start recording, only after you click add point again does it get back to 1. So I had the impression I was still adding points to the anterior path.  Nevertheless I believe a "de...

Well, in this case, the ISS is a single huge module, you can select the edit module option and resize the whole station as you wish.

Camera path editor addition ?

I'm having quite some trouble with the camera path editor, the most annoying part is that I can't seem to find a way to delete my path and start over, other that closing and opening SE. I think a button next to the add point button to reset/delete the path or to remove the last point added would be ...

Mods and Addons - Requests, suggestions and ideas

Well, thanks for sharing the .sss file, as I'm pretty sure that's part of the problem. If you read carefully the manual for " creating a ship " you need 2 folders in your addon:  models/ and textures/. The link to the .cfg file in your .sss file doesn't include the models/ fol...

The cupola is definitely a goodie to have so I'll try to modify the "hi-res" model to have the shutter open and be able to use it. 
Here are some views form the cupola.

ISS Mod

Thanks fot that Doctor of Space, I think this version was on the old forum but had not been reposted here. I've tested it in 0.990 and it does work fine. The HST is a great  addition too. I remember I had these on 0.980 but after a hard drive failure and reinstall, I lost it and never found it again...

ISS Mod

Sorry, it is not a model I did, I just imported the 3D model from NASA  . I'm not that good at modelling. There's this other model  which is lighter in size, but it is in lightwave format, I'm currently importing models from blender, so IF i'm importing this lighter model, it'll have to wait until I...

You already can do that, not directly from the .blend archive but carefully exporting to .obj first. I've done already several addons (spacecrafts, the ISS) from blender models, check the manual section on "creating a ship" so you can see how to import .obj into space engine
