Is there any way to render a line between two points, like a constellation?
I do not know if there is a script command that can generate such lines, but I know a very nasty hack.
You need a file called 'Constellations.cfg
' in the directory 'addons\catalogs\stars
In this file you write something like this:
// Line test
// JackDole 2019.09.18 00:51:25
//LabelPos (0.36, -71.06)
"Raven" "Black Rose"
"Black Rose" "Hiszs"
"Hiszs" "JDV 00035"
"JDV 00035" "JDV 00043"
"Raven" "JDV 00049"
The lines will only be visible when the constellations are turned on.
But all other constellations have disappeared!
If you want to keep them, you need to extract the file 'Constallations.cfg
' from the 'Catalogs.pak
' archive and attach your file to this file and then save it in 'addons\catalogs\stars
You may have to change these lines in the 'main-user.cfg
'. (The maximum value for 'ConstelLinesFadeEnd' is 1e + 06 parsec.)
ConstelLinesFadeStart 4000 // distance, at which constellation lines starts to fade out (parsecs)
ConstelLinesFadeEnd 10000 // distance, at which constellation lines ends to fade out (parsecs)
