Blue Marble 1972

The Apollo 17 Blue Marble as a cloud map, with the rest of the planet filled in with 2002 Blue Marble clouds. I couldn't find a copy of the original Blue Marble with enough detail to blend into the 2002 map, so instead I stitched together several zoomed-in photos taken just before the Blue Marble. T...

Re: A new Addon Repository concept (Formerly called "Should we make a new Motherlode?")

I went to the Celestia Motherlode website and... it feels like time has stopped and I'm back in the 2000s somewhere. The design's good. But it's... it's outdated too. Besides, it's very inconvenient to view this site from a mobile device. Sorry to necro, but imo, web design in general has been goin...

Re: Star textures

Here's a brighter version of my star textures... stars1-brighter.png stars2-brighter.png Download (8K) Download (4K) ...and a set of lens flares to go with them. You'll have to add these manually to every star you want them on; I've included some examples. You could also hack the model to add colors...

I'm well aware of that, but that's the highest GD would let me set the noise scale. That scale also lets me tweak the granule noise without having to re-bake the texture every time, as GD only shows a low-res preview while you're editing.

Re: Need instructions on how to use "The Gimp" to create planets

If you're using these, just be aware that they're ripped from Half-Life 2. (specifically the leaked beta, I believe) You may want to give Valve some credit.

Red Vortex

Red Vortex is a 3.3-solar mass black hole in M83, orbited by a frozen volcanic super-earth named Bluelight for its bright blue aurorae. Props to anyone who can guess where I actually lifted the names from. Addon only works in 1.7.0 due to distance. Consider this addon CC-BY. I've included the .blend...

Re: Electric Universe Theory

So that setup happens to look like a black hole and its accretion disk. There's no lensing ( which has been observed ). It doesn't look like it's generating an attractive, inward force that would keep stars in orbit, as it's not visibly stressing the rig which clearly isn't designed to withstand suc...
