Fictional: Solar Systems, Planets, etc.:
Journey Thru Planetary Space

Summary:Illustrates Jules Verne´s 1877 novel "Off on a Comet: A Journey Through Planetary Space" for Celestia. The full version is split into two parts: the add-on itself, and a separate, optional HiRes folder. IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a Celestia 1.4+ add-on. It will not work as intended using Celestia 1.5.
Description:Jules Verne´s book was the first fictional tour of our solar system - a great adventure and an exiting popularization of what was known about it at the time.

This is a major upgrade for Off on a Comet. Hi-Res Virtual Textures, summer and winter seasons, all new - and more - location models, and a new trajectory (written by Jestr).

The eBook is illustrated solely with actual screen shots taken from the Celestia scenario, and each image is linked to the location described, so that one can read the book, click on a picture, and explore the place before going back to the text.

Too big of a file, try to make an installer rather than an entire file. Or crnch it down to size. Use Bit Torrent. Very good!

This addon is amazing. It's only real problem is the enormous size of it. Perhaps that could be remedied by allowing this to to made available for download with file-sharing software such as BitTorrent? home page
