    Cool Some real working answers

    okay that "Need Help" subject I replied to, wont exactly make you look... lol

    Gravity Simulation: c
    Focal len and user defined star size: S,s
    Random StarGate. Warps to the stars: 5
    StarGate: 6

    Code that answers many questions - got to know at least this much about the Matrix.
    not exactly a newbie - misnomer, hah

    More features:

    Visual effect hint, enter Sge 09 (14,000 lightyrs), tab twice(key focus),
    hit key '6', select Sun target, Set button, Mode CameraView.
    Rotationrate and tilt in one glMultMatrixd
    Draw oRbit lines: r

    To do:
    Constellation boundary lines
    Galaxy lib
    Rings are horrible - redo

    I expected loads of interest and teamwork with this glorious open source local universe -
    for improvements and new ideas on star draw, orbit lines and ring shading -
    you guys are no help! lol guess I'm on my own. That's nothing new.

    But for beginners, here's where you learn 3D math - by working example - the only way.
    Want 3D? Here's a giant leap forward with all the prebuilt functions - peace and success to u.

    opengl.org search for 3ds = Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.

    VBulletin is pretty decent for forum posting and management. But I would agree that its built-in search capability leaves something to be desired. Which is why I never use it, but instead...

    Use a web search engine to search the opengl.org site. For instance:


    If you want to search just the discussion_boards (or just the wiki), that's an easy modification

    apparently need Assimp and Blender, and perhaps starting with loading .obj files

    also I found this : http://www.open3mod.com/
    zip file was not enough, required more libraries.
    I ran the setup and now have a model viewer - loaded SB42.obj

    found some models here https://www.trekmeshes.ch/fulllist.php

    I had all these, -- er still have them on old drives -- star trek fleet
    http://news.povray.org/povray.binari...3E/fleet05.png
    all the LEGO pieces for POV -- if I ever get old data back online, doh!

    previous years of POV
    http://trueinnerbeing.x10host.com/pov/

    get the latest GL planets, with way fewer UI conflicts as of today -- soon may have working-obj-support example

    thanks for the info photon vader

    need a 2D map of this stuff.
    https://i.ytimg.com/vi/j8CzTZonARs/maxresdefault.jpg
    wouldn't be that hard if my old puter was setup.
    need opengl effects guru. come on people, lets do cool stuff.
    so much to learn, so little time.

    In a real world, there'd be this web site,
    with every example routine ever devised and run, free for all.
    promoting an explosion of creativity - the real stuff.
    If only the world weren't disappointingly self-centered.

    RIP Carlin
