Jack's Celestia Add-ons

xyz zips contain xyz files(s), ssc to run it, and install instructions. Model zips contain model, textures and install instructions. ssc files contain the ssc, and install instructions. To see screenshots of the model before downloading, click on the link, and it will bring you directly to the page of shots of that model.

Ulysses Solar Polar Probe 71KB

The Full Ulysses Model shows Ulysses with Magnetometer and axial booms extended. (~80m wide)
The main body Ulysses model only shows the spacecraft bus itself. (Main part of the craft anyway)
The Ulysses + IUS model shows Ulysses as it would have looked when being deployed by the Shuttle Discovery in 1990

IMPORTANT: Are your Pathfinder & Sojourner models positioned correctly? Please take a few moments to read this first

Pathfinder Lander 93KB

Nozomi (Planet-B) 234KB

Like Ulysses, Nozomi (Planet-B) has four magnetometer booms extending from each side of the spacecraft. To see these in your model, download the Full Nozomi model.
If you only want to see the main spacecraft bus, and the two thicker booms, download the Main body Nozomi model.

NEAR Eros Landing Site 1KB

I also reccomend using the highly detailed version of the Eros model, it looks much better when you're close to the surface- you can download it from Selden's Resources for Celestia site. Also, ensure you have version 1.3.0 or newer of Celestia installed.

NEAR-Shoemaker 122KB

If you want to see Magellan as it would have looked in orbit around Venus, download the standard Magellan model.
If you want to see Magellan as it would have looked while being deployed by the Shuttle Atlantis in 1989, download the Magellan + IUS model.

Mariner 9 341KB

Modelled by TERRIER - crinkly foil, grills by Jack Higgins

Updated 10th August '03 with improved HGA, other minor bits.

15.

Galileo HIGH DETAIL Trajectory 4.83MB
Ignore what it says in the readme (for now) and just rename the file in the data folder to "galileo.xyz", replacing the original. You still need to do everything it says in the Galileo ssc patch file.

The "Galileo + IUS" model shows how Galileo would have looked while being deployed by the Shuttle Atlantis in 1989.
The "Galileo + Probe + HGA closed" model shows Galileo between Shuttle deployment & HGA partial opening, on the 11th April 1991.
The "Galileo + Probe" model is an update to the existing galileo model, to show how it would have looked between launch & probe deployment in 1995.
The "Galileo ssc patch" is a segment you have to add to solarsys.ssc, to be able to see the Galileo models change throughout the mission.

Vega 1 2KB

Model zip has 2 different models, and the xyz ssc reflects this also. Model 1 is of Vega with Venus lander attached, and Model 2 is of Vega after the probe release. The model changes ~2 days before closest approach to Venus, when the probe deployed.

Vega 163KB

Based on converted Vega VRML mesh from "The VSM"

Cassini "swap models" ssc 1KB

Horizons hasn't got the updated Cassini trajectory yet (taking account of the new Huygens release date) so until they have that I won't put up an xyz trajectory for Cassini.
