Fictional: ArcBuilder Universe:
Mercury V0.1

Summary:The planet Mercury during the "modern" era of the ArcBuilder setting.
Description:This add-on is meant to convey the heavily colonized status of Mercury in 3501 CE. The surface is covered by energy-gathering solar collectors, while the lights from subterranean cities outline surface craters. The orbiting solar power satellite was created by Jestr. Thanks to him for his excellent work! Please note that this add-on will modify how your current version of Mercury is displayed. To install, simply extract the zip file to your Celestia\extras directory. To view, simply (G)o to Mercury. To view the Station Daedalus, just use Celestia's built-in Solar System Browser under the Navigation Menu.

Additional NOTE: Please download the ArcBuilder Venus add-on to get the missing pieces of this add-on. For some reason, they have been included in THAT add-on, rather than here.

Never mind. I found the missing pieces for this Mercury add-on located in the ArcBuilder Venus add-on. Download THAT add-on too if you wish to find all of the pieces for Mercury. Shaking my head... ;-)

Just a note for John... The 3DS model is not built correctly. It cannot locate a number of the textures it needs, even though the textures ARE included in the Mercury\textures\medres folder. You may wish to modify this file, since the grid and the ring world pictures you show here are NOT illustrated in Celestia 1.5.1 Final. Just FYI. home page
