As some of you may know, I'm trying to get an update of the Celestia Plug-in for Safehold done prior to Manticon 2017. I've added a moon, and the ISS as a substitute for the Orbital Bombardment Platform. I also have a collage of maps that are the best I can do for an updated Texture file.

What I'm on now is a collection of pre-saved locations with Latitudes and Longitudes pointing to locations on the Texture/Map.

If you'd be willing to share some of your time, please look at the below. It's my "1.0 draft" of locations to save. Please share your own "top-ten" or "top-ninety" locations you'd like to see saved, whose position I have not already inferred.

What location are you using for 0 longitude, my guess would be Zion.

From the list Zion is at long 304.5

I'm not bothering with copying and pasting David Weber's original map just in order to trick Celestia into producing a zero on Zion.

If I did that, I'd have to have done the same thing on all five of the close-up maps, plus any future maps that DW might ever release.

So, whatever the Texture file results in is/are the numbers that I use.
