Celestia

Chat and discussion not related to either Marathon or Aleph One. Please keep things at least mildly interesting, though.

This Program is amazing. Everyone Check it out. It also has an add-on feature, so if you want, you can throw in 3D models of whatever you want (i.e The Marathon), and make a pretty cool title screen. The graphics are pretty good, but the orbit view is spectacular. Here's a link.

Yours seems to be more hi-res but is it customizable? Could you put a spaceship in there if you wanted to?

As long it has some deep astronomical study element.

If a space sim is what you want, I highly recommend Orbiter. Not for Linux or Mac unfortunately. Stellarium is a good program, I use it pretty regularly. It is just a nice little planetarium program, great for backyard astronomy enthusiast. It will even display in red and black for bringing out your laptop with your telescope.

I don't really care about regular space, I use celestia because if I wanted to, I could throw in a orange planet next to the ringworld in alpha centauri delta.

I wouldn't want to customize the universe! That throws off the balance of individual science!

...

Can you make a Marathon universe from scratch?

You could put a Celestia Star Wars environment in your Star Wars scenario thingy. That would be impressive; in Battlefront II they nearly always had a global view of the planet you're on.

No, it's not as simple as that.

Sure, you could pass off Mygeeto or Polis Massa as a giant rock but more decorated planets like Naboo or Felucia need color- especially Felucia.

Hey, bro. I read those quoted post and they just didn't make any sense. After all, there are exactly four detectable celestial bodies in the Mararthon universe: Earth, Lh'owon, Lh'owon's sun, and K'lia. (Supposedly there's a Pfhor Prime somewhere, but where?) A model of the Mararthon universe would be just a vast void -- and if you had the extremely fortune to know exactly where you were going, you might be able to find a pinprick of a planet.

But then someone else suggested a much more reasonable alternative to that interpretation (I had never downloaded the program, so I didn't realize this was part of it): maybe he meant the thing you fly around in should be modeled as the Mararthon. -- At least that seems slightly less ridiculous until you remember what the Marathon "ship" was: a rock with jets.

Lay off, bro.

Oh, sorry there. I must have misinterpreted your post. I tend to do that.

Thermo is wrong, its the regular galaxy with those added in. what about mars and demios, which had to be converted into the marathon? what about Tau ceti and everything else?

"and everything else!" what else is mentioned? how do we know all those familiar stars exist? they are NOT CANON.
