seeing as I made that mars VT
why did NO ONE ask me ?
there is contact info all over the place
at http://celestiamotherlode.net/
at the celestia forum
http://www.shatters.net/forum/

for the CML just contact the site manager

also joining the 512 x 512 tiles is very easy , just time consuming

i would just use the vips image lib and join them as a matrix .
or ask me for the full res mars map

Hello! Which Mars texture do you mean? I took some textures from Celestia's addons site many years ago, but then replaced some of them with the original textures taken from the NASA sites (I cannot remember now which ones they were).

Anyway, you seems have good skill in making good hi-res textures for Celestia. SE community will be glad if you join us smile

old post , but....

contact info is a bit scarce
now i do NOT use Microsoft software nor a Microsoft Operating system

so almost all tools i use are Linux ( and multi OS , as in will ALSO build on windows and OSX )

for joining my VT's for celestia
it might be easier to ask for a link to the untilled image
or
use a small script to rejoin them
i would use a bash script
but a python or perl script would run on all major Operating Systems

then there is a rather nice tool for "hugin" that uses PERL to convert ( reproject ) the Simple Cylindrical maps i use into a CUBE format ( and visa versa )
it is part of "CPAN" and can be installed using cpan
Example:


and i have a nice little BASH script that uses imagemagick to cut the above cube map into the 6 tiles

Hmm, sad I didn't knwe about this cube tool 5 years ago... So I wrote my own tool on C++, it did a work much faster than ImageMagic, and also made some SE-specific work (like borders to fix seams).

I also made a small tool to join tiles, before 0.972 I updated it so now it works with any tile resolution and format (including RAW and IMG). It is useful to merge giant 2+ Gb tiles which can be found on NASA servers.

I completely forgot to share these updated tools here smile
