Remember when you said you were going to create a new version of the Swift Observatory without defects? I thought you already created a new version with textures. Not sure why you're doing it again. :think:

No worries, toutatis, I think this model looks much better than the previously untextured one. I didn't download the other one at first, since you said it had no textures. And without textures, the model doesn't look too good.

Nice model !

But I saw a problem with ssc file.
Half of the year solar panels are on wrong orientation because Tess is not in heliosynchron rotation. :cry:

Jeesh, jujuapapa! You always seem to find something you don't like about it! If you don't like it, then why don't you customize it yourself?

Jujuapapa, I'm sorry for the way I acted. Looking back, I was very immature, but that was because I had a bad day and was in a bitter mood. I apologize for my unacceptable behavior. :sad:

New spacecraft: WIND
If I'm not mistaken, I believe there is orbital data on HORIZONS.
