HANG ON i think i may know whats wrong with your diffuse map alliment, i'll fix it later

Re: Aurelia, Blue Moon, and Darwin IV add-ons?

this is what I ge using your bump map. Plus there is still polar pinching, Polar pinching doesnt bug me too much. Its just the clouds and the mountains. I guess your bump map is for your lower quality textures so let me give you mine hmm no matter how hard you try to fix polar pinching in a texture...

Re: Aurelia, Blue Moon, and Darwin IV add-ons?

The stars are called Darwin A and Darwin B. The book and movie have a diffirent arrangement of the planets ...
