Celestia is a fantastic astronomical simulation software in real time. I discovered it 7 years ago, it is a free software and you can download it on the official site : http://www.shatters.net/celestia/Celestia can be personalized according to your wish provided that you have some basic computer science knowledge. Used by the NASA, today and for me it is the best software in this field. Numerous AddOns have been created to enrich it. This website introduce my own Celestia AddOns StarWarSaga ; Back in USSR and my new project
This personal page introduces StarWarSaga the addon I realized for Celestia. It regroups most of the Georges Lucas films space vessels along with the main heros. It is a long work which has been started since several years. Today, just the first and the second episodes are finished and with the new 1.5.0 Celestia version most of the scripts are to be adapted. I hope to get some times to revise these two packs.
SLAVE ONE (Episode 2)
Most of the original vessels have been taken from the internet site scifi3d. The 3d models are not directly compatible with Celestia and a lot of transcoding are necessary to make them compatible with the most adapted 3ds format of Celestia. Then, after transcoding, some original textures are to be replaced or adapted to obtain more realistic effects... On the other side, the addon contains hundreds of vessels, locations and personages.
ATTAQUE DES X-WINGS (Episode 4)
I designed the planet textures with the Gimp under Linux, some of them are up to 16384 x 8192 high resolution dds format. Clicking on the left pictures, you will be able to look to each StarWarSaga episode status including demos files (cel scripts) which relate the saga in 3d animation.
