INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION
« on: February 03, 2022, 07:36:26 pm »

Initially it was a simple challenge: to be able to convert the beautiful model of the Space Station, from the NASA 3D Resource site, into something "edible" for the FBX importer of Outerra and obtain a static model that can be explored in every detail.
Then, the evidence that such a detailed model deserved something more, turned it into a real working model, which follows its real orbit and can also be piloted to explore different orbital trajectories.

Thanks to NASA for allowing the free use of the original models:
https://nasa3d.arc.nasa.gov/detail/iss
https://nasa3d.arc.nasa.gov/detail/iss-internal
https://nasa3d.arc.nasa.gov/detail/emu

Special thanks to the authors of the Satellite.js project
https://github.com/shashwatak/satellite-js
which I used to calculate the position of the ISS

and to the site "Where the ISS at?" (https://wheretheiss.at/w/developer)
which provides the TLE data of any satellite in Earth orbit, necessary for position calculations, with a simple "get" call.


The model can be downloaded at the following address:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-948hiPEh3U92lIjPGWRJDKls-BwJH1S/view?usp=sharing

For details on installation and use, read the MANUAL in the Help folder of the model.

I hope this Space Station is worthy of the magnificent world of Outerra.

Have fun !  =D

Wow ! This is incredible ! It really simulates the experience on the ISS !
Such an incredibly detailed model all explorable in a way that feels like floating in zero gravity !
..and so carefully crafted astronauts ..(all italians ...lol)
so many thanks to italian artist andfly   ;)
And not only that: the milkyway and even polar lights !...didn't get yet over cities in the night
but I will definitely make many orbits around the earth ! Its so fun, even just guessing where you are by looking at the terrain,
and it really feels like beeing in space !
Big congratulations to you andfly ! A superb mod for outerra  !
And what a surprise...a new mod from you was the last thing I was expecting ...everybody is so busy but you found the time
to give us another one of your artworks.
We'll have a lot of pleasant hours to spend in orbit now , observing our planet from above:) 

p.s. Post it also on outerra discord !

just a few screenshots:

Congratulations.

I now saw the city lights ..but at first I thought they're clouds as they are more white than yellow and quite dim.
So I changed  the IIS_EARTH.mtl  in IIS_OBJECTS/ISS_EARTH folder at the NASA_EARTH_NIGHT entry increasing the emissivity considerably and making it more yellowish..

Thanks aWac9
As always, you know how to create the "ad hoc" video for every circumstance!
Even the voices of the astronauts in the background ... nice !!!

I am happy if you like the model and enjoy it.

Good simulation!

Hi, fly77
receiving appreciation from those who contribute so continuously and always with new and exciting ideas to enrich the world of Outerra is a great pleasure.
The screenshots you made are a really good indication of what can be achieved from the simulation!
I couldn't have done better!  Thanks!

For the night lights of the cities you had a good idea.
Indeed a more yellowish cast and higher intensity give it a more realistic look.
It is certainly advisable to change the parameters of the material with those indicated by you.

I really hope this model gives you a pleasant time (maybe really hours).

Have fun!  :D :D

now everything is calm, here everything is happiness... come and see...


the International Space Station ISS, is scheduled to self-destruct around 2031, when the entire platform will head towards the planet... the remains of the modules that do not disintegrate while descending, will end up falling in the Pacific, in a known place like the spaceship graveyard. (Point Nemo). Unless unforeseeable situations occur.

come in and get ready


 ^-^

I have been observing the sky for days and since the installation of the Andfly mod, strange things are happening up there... I always see two vigilant objects, which observe threateningly... they are always there, in the perspective of the sun... no I know what it will be, if it's floating mod debris, or space junk... but I fear the worst, I think they're aliens... they've seen the Andfly mod they don't see it with good eyes...  8)

the Adfly mod and the real ISS perform the same trajectory in real time.
the integrity of the trajectory and the curvature of the earth is demonstrated. :)
