Celestia Legacy Help

Post #1by tizpiz » 17.02.2023, 02:44


I am wondering which version of Celestia is known as the 'Legacy' version aka 'CelestiaApp' of Celestia.

I would require this as I need the 'spherical mirror version'.

Thank you for the help,

It sounds like you're referring to this version of Celestia for macOS.

Spherical mirror projection can be configured in celestia.cfg - look for "ProjectionMode", "ViewportEffect", and "WarpMeshFile" near the end of the file.
