I'm afraid I'm out of ideas regarding your issue, since it seems all perfectly fine. Having unabridged versions of .sc files attached here could help, as JackDole suggested.

The error is probably some missing or misplaced parenthesis.
It is possible that the bug is in a completely different script.
If you have more addons, from other authors, the mistake can be anywhere. But probably the mistake is in one of your own scripts.

I think you have not set uv map coordinates in blender but the generated or object coordinates, so you see one thing on blender but another on SE that use only UVmaps coordinates... there are a lot of tutorials about base texturing on youtube...
maybe this can be useful:

You do not have to use those options. you must use the UV map editor, create a cube projection of faces and adjust as you like...

Since we can't edit nebulae in 0.9.8.0, is there a way to find out which model file a procedural nebula uses?
Edit: Never mind, I see you can get it by pressing *.

kham132, have you tried to export the script for the ice world to see if there are additional color statements, like plants, that may be affecting the cracks?

It looks like Rodrigo's mod builds the blue color into the tg_selena_color shader:
if (cracksFreq <0.6)
{
surf.color = mix(vec4(0.75, 0.87, 0.9, 0.00), vec4(1.0), vary);
}
else
{
surf.color *= mix(vec4(0.7, 0.58, 0.36, 0.00), vec4(1.0), vary);
}

The first case generates Enceladus-like colors, and the second generates Europa-like colors. There doesn't seem to be any way to change those colors in a planet script, unless you want to modify the shader yourself.

I'll upload it to google drive.. I believe my problem is somewhere in building a material path or something to the textures for the default shuttle. Because the boosters show up with color and what not but the default shuttle has textures, and that has to be where I am doing something wrong.

Ok please let me know if the link works, I put together what I made and then what I did path wise separate, so that you can import but also maybe see what I am doing wrong and included a text explaining. Let me know if the link works

OK, so I finally retrieved my Celestia installation from my old hard drive. I have some questions regarding converting Celestia addons over to Space Engine.

Are there any tools which convert .ssc files into .sc files? If not, are there are any guides for converting them manually?

What can Space Engine do that Celestia can't, and vice versa?
