An Addon for Celestia has been created by Ensign Re-read and myself to display DW's recent maps of Safehold, ca 897, at high resolution. Ensign Re-read gave a presentation about the Addon at this year's Manticon.

Safehold_v2.zip Addon for Celestia (118 MB, expands to 673 MB) May, 2017

Yes, it's rather large, which is due both to the high resolutions of the maps and to giving it reasonable performance. Some additional information about the Addon is available at https://www.classe.cornell.edu/~seb/cel ... x.html#3.2

In addition to the maps, it includes a simplistic model of Rakurai, the orbital bombardment station.

That is really great! Should be made sticky or something like that.

Thanks for the kind words. :)

Maybe we're too close to it, but Ensign Re-read and myself both see lots of things that could be improved. We'd also greatly appreciate any suggestions that others could provide.
