Fictional: Craft and Stations:
Ringworld

Summary:The scenario that lets the user visit and examine Larry Niven's Ringworld in full 3-D.
Description:Requires Celestia 1.5.0 or later!

Runar did limit the scenario to a few key scenes from the first book, to keep it light enough to be within the rendering abilities of most modern computers. One can visit the Ring from all angles, dive beneath the clouds and see the Great Oval Ocean, the Fist-Of-God mountain and the Maps of Known Space. Or lock on to the Lying Bastard for a flight through the star system, or to any of the four protagonists for a trip through the Ringworld┬┤s skies...

The Lo-Res version is limited to just a couple of locations, the models are simplified, and all texture-mapping is scaled down considerably, as it is optimized for a low-end computer system.

Wow, looks great! You should just call it the halo ring (like out of the halo game) and added all thoses areas, its pretty much the same anyway.

Don't change it! I love it the way it is!
