|Summary:||8K/16K Virtual Textures for some of Saturn's moons.|
|Description:||These add-ons contain varying high resolution virtual textures for some of Saturn's moons. You may follow John's installation instructions which have been included with each add-on package. Please note, however, that the Enceladus package is MISSING its Enceladus.ctx file. In order to repair this, simply create the file using Notepad or its equivalent, and then save it to your Celestia\textures\hires directory. Copy the following into the new file, than save it as was just described:|
Please note that ALL of these packages include PNG files for their texture images, and that John suggests that to install these packages, you should unzip each into your Celestia directory, and then start Celestia.
NOTE from Brain-Dead Bob: Not everyone sets up and uses their VT's in the same manner, so you may wish to use another approach in order to establish these textures as Alternative Textures for each of these add-ons. On my Vista system, for example, I have used the following code in order to use John's simply excellent VT for Dione as an alternative texture. Please note that John does NOT recommend this, but I am offering this advice simply for others who may prefer this approach to using VT's. Please see the code below for Dione:
Modify "Dione" "Sol/Saturn"
SpecularColor [ 0.11 0.1 0.1 ]
AltSurface "High Resolution" "Sol/Saturn/Dione"
You would simply save this code as your new Dione.ssc file in your Celestia\extras\Dione folder, and then you'd have the opportunity to right-click on Dione while running Celestia in order to select either the "Normal" texture, or the "High Resolution" texture.
