Celestial Bodies Motion - Part 4/4 - v2.0.0 2015-07-01


CeBoMo accurately simulates the motion of 60 bodies in the Solar System (Sun, planets, dwarf planets, Sedna, 39 satellites and 6 asteroids) from the year 1987 to 2077. For the Sun, Earth, Moon, Jupiter, Saturn and Venus the coverage window starts from the year 1965 to cover the Apollo missions with the relevant celestial bodies located in the expected position with sub-meter accuracy.
CeBoMo includes: 1 DLL to handle all the bodies, data files, configuration files for Pluto and Charon and a program to automate the installation process and to update .cfg files.
CeBoMo does not include neither textures nor meshes.
Part #1 includes the dll to handle all the bodies, the configurator, runtime libraries and data files for the default bodies.
Part #2 includes the data files for the new bodies (excluding Naiad and Thalassa) and the configuration files for Pluto and Charon.
Part #3 includes only the data files for Naiad and Thalassa.
Part #4 includes only the manual, this way you don’t need to download more than 100 MB to read detailed information about CeBoMo. Moreover, the chapter “Accuracy” could be of some interest even if CeBoMo is not installed.
Warning: v1.0.0 .dat files are not compatible with this version.
