First things first I love this program, keep up the good work.
Right I want to be able to make the sun disappear when I want it to and come back again at another time, I can turn the atmosphere off but the sun doesn't go and I need it to.
I am running it on Windows any ideas how I can do this.
Secondly I was wondering if there is a way of making the constellation lines a little thicker?
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
Try to remove the line containing 'halo.png' from the suns configuration in ssystem.ini.
You mistake the atmosphere for the sun itself. Turn off the atmosphere when standing on Io or Europa.
When you watch a lunar eclipse from earth you will see the rendering of earths shadow.
Ok, I try to ask you more simple, maybe I was misunderstandable:
How do I make the yellow part on the moon black? How do I turn off the yellow part? Which line shall I modify in config.ini?
If you don't like the lunar eclipse coloration you can modify the textures/earth-shadow.png image.
Thank you for your reply.
When selecting a different planet as the Earth as homplanet, like Europa, the Sun won't disappear behind the Jupiter. I know it is hard to model all the 3D elements, like shadowing, but this will do good to the program.
Btw: In case of a lunar eclipse, how do I set the program, that the shadowed part of the moon should not beeing shown, or just shadowed. Is there some kind of way to do so?
You may change the constellation lines color in config.ini and make it brigther. Perhaps this is what you want.
Is this a correct orbit?
