Portable Celestia 1.4.1

#1 Post by alpanix »

Great job to everyone, here!
Thanks for everything.

I have searched for Shatter's Celestia Planetarium on this website, and did not find anything about it.
I have tryied to give it some sort of portability using the last Universal Extractor and it seems it works well. Also I have downloaded some add-ons from The Celestia Motherlode website and put them in the extras and models folders, and they have been added to the star/deep space catalogue just like using the software after a normal installation.
The executable file Celestia.exe, once the setup exe has been extracted, is in the folder [apps] and just double clicking on it the application is loaded and well working.

Hope this is welcome.
Thanks again

Celestia Portable - the portable space simulator.


Unlike most planetarium software, Celestia doesn't confine you to the surface of the Earth. You can travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond the galaxy. All movement in Celestia is seamless; the exponential zoom feature lets you explore space across a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to spacecraft only a few meters across. A 'point-and-goto' interface makes it simple to navigate through the universe to the object you want to visit. Celestia is expandable. Celestia comes with a large catalog of stars, galaxies, planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and spacecraft. If that's not enough, you can download dozens of easy to install add-ons with more objects.
