Great, but it fails when loading under Linux because of textures' filenames (uppercase/lowercase): just rename some of them this way (LITERALLY): BHJETS.PNG, conic04.PNG, conical5.PNG, CONICAL.PNG, CONICAL2.PNG, CONICALA.PNG, CONICALB.PNG
(that's all, enjoy)

this is cool. Observe this whilst listening to cygnus x-1 by Rush. By the way, cool ship, on par with the black hole, well done.

It's not a quasar, silly! At least I don't see any resemblences to one. It's a highly detailed model of a black hole, though. "Black" does not do it any justice.

actually it is not a black hole but a quasar. Yes... it has a black hole for a center but it is still a quasar. Nice... thanks for the quasar

This blackhole is, from far, the greatest one I've ever tried in Celestia. This is a must to have.

Oh, this is very nice! The little surprise in the center is well worth it!
