When adding or subtracting solar days, the default is Earth's mean 24-hour
solar day. But if I'm viewing from Mars, for example, a mean 24-hour Earth
solar day advancement isn't of much use. It would be cool to have an option to
advanced by "mean sols" based on the planet you're viewing from.
You seem to have CSS turned off.
Please don't fill out this field.
Yes, of course. Can you fill feature request in our bug's tracker on
launchpad.net - https://bugs.launchpad.net/stellarium?
I received the "fixed released" notification in the bug tracker a few weeks ago;
[see https://bugs.launchpad.net/stellarium/+bug/1035635 ]
but only got around to installing the latest version of Stellarium today, ver 0.12.0 (so my apologies for the delay with this follow-up.)
Anyway, just some FYI—
The "add 1 solar day" function does not seem to work properly on any given planet. On whatever planet I'm viewing from, the "add 1 solar day" feature advances just less than 1 solar day (i.e., the sun will appear to "move" eastward with each "plus 1 solar day" button push.)
At first I thought maybe it was an equation-of-time issue, but that doesn't seem to be the case. That is, if we're talking mean solar days, then a rapid advancement (read: simply holding the button down) should show the sun make an analemma in the sky (or if using apparent solar days, then a rapid advancement should show the sun move north-to-south [and back] while remaining on its current meridian.) But that's not happening at all.
Please try 0.12.1beta2 - I'm fixed my stupid errors in solar and sidereal days.
