If you find any Alderaan & Death Star textures, just replace the standard one and it should work :)

Nice!

Only one problem:

Moon should have rotation to oposite side :-)

Moon makes one turn for one rotation around the Earth so we can see only one half of its surface from the Earth.

Thanks everyone :)

@Zedna

You're right but the script isn't made for real world simulation anyway, the problem is that the rotation around earth and rotation around itself is not calculated in the same way.

Edit: Eh, it's not that much work, I fix it >_<

@AdmiralAlkex

The clock evolved into this. Thought it looked cooler :idiot:

Edit2: It now takes the moon one lap around the earth to rotate around itself.

@monoceres; moon does not turn, rotate around itself

I haven't looked at the new version, but if I'm not mistaken the moon also rotates around the earth in the same direction the earth revolves.

I tried to find a Star Destroyer texture from the SWG .tre files and failed. The only textures labeled "Star Destryoer" were like the sides of the thing :)

Awesome job on the script!

Wouldn't you be looking for Death Star? A Star Destroyer texture wouldn't work. Come on now get your Star Wars terms right >_<

Nice but I think the moon is spinning the wrong way??

Yes but the wrong way!

If you change to this

$mrot = (1-Mod($time,2*$PI)/(2*$PI))*$moontexturew
    $mrot2 = (1-Mod($time,2*$PI)/(2*$PI))*$moontexturew-$moontexturew

it will make Zedna happy (and me).

But who cares, it looks fantastic.

I'm not native English speaker and this was quite difficult to translate for me :)

Obviously me neither, if I wasn't understood.

monoceress moon was not moving right after update as a response to your post (still isn't as I can see).

I was trying to simplify things.
