BC Coriolis

(1/2) > >>

bioconcave:
I'm working on an addon for Celestia, and as it involves quite a bit of assembly in Anim8or, I thought I should post a short video preview here.

In the future, when humanity has finally got around to colonizing the solar system, a diverse transportation system will enable travel between Earth and the Colonies. This may include large interplanetary cruise-ships like the "BC Coriolis" ... 

See the video: HERE

(A work in progress)

selden:
Looks great!

The ship design looks a little familiar ;)

bioconcave:
Thanks Selden,
... although it's veracity as a Celestia addon has been challenged!
Considering that it has involved hundreds of hours of work so far (as you no doubt can appreciate), that is somewhat disappointing.

selden:
To be accepted for publishing on the Celestia MotherLode, Celestia Addons do have to work in all of the environments where Celestia runs. Is that the problem? Usually the fixes are straight forward but can be time consuming.

The usual problem is that an Addon author has to make sure all the file names are spelled correctly. Windows doesn't care about capitalization, but Linux does. Since Windows is case in-sensitive, both "A.b" and "a.B" are names for the same file. Under Linux, however, file specifications are case sensitive. The names "A.b" and "a.B" specify two completely separate files. As a result, an Addon which specifies the file "A.b" won't find the file named "a.B" and will fail under Linux.

Selden,
Thanks for the advice.
That's not the problem as I haven't yet, and probably won't attempt to publish the addon on the Motherlode. I am pretty much aware of the differences between Windows and Linux, although that's not to say that it will definitely work under all environs ... that would be the aim however.
All I've published so far in fact is a preview video rather than the addon itself (which is still a work in progress).
I've since put up a second very short clip with Celestia's telemetry displayed, which in theory should satisfy the doubters. ;-)
