Re: Preferred Method of System Creation

You know, the second I started this thread I had the feeling I put it in the wrong department! :lol: I'll move my recommendations there. As far as a tutorial goes, I don't think I'm the guy for it. I'm just getting the hang of what I'm doing, and basically just fiddle with settings until I see somet...

Re: Preferred Method of System Creation

I have a link for it on the first page of this thread... :wink: -M- While I do like the SSC generator, I find I have to hit "generate" a lot...it takes a while to get something I like. I also find I have to go back through and fix stuff. If anyone knows some ways to tweak this a little bet...

Re: Preferred Method of System Creation

My cheat on AstroSynth is this: Generate a Sector Report. It makes an HTML of the star(s), the planets in the system (not just stats, but orbital info and any textures), moons, etc. Then you can just visit it when you need it. Sounds too simple, I suppose, but it works. I use AstroSynth when I'm wan...

Re: Genetica

I've been getting very good results with it lately after much tinkering...While LunarCell is good, and I know a lot of people here use it, I found I like Genetica a smidge more. (The other reason being my lunarcell demo expired and I can't render anything. :lol: ) Although one does have to do a litt...

Re: Preferred Method of System Creation

Is that Celestia-friendly mode for StarGen only online, or is the home version capable of it?

Re: Preferred Method of System Creation

Do you know of any system generators that would reflect the modern understandings of solar system formation? Or do you just type it out from scratch?

By the way, POV looks rather slick!!! Got any samples of planetary textures you care to show?

Re: Preferred Method of System Creation

Sorry. I apologize for my dumbness.

I also forgot Rassilon's SSC Generator http://home.arcor.de/christianlenz/ssc.html (Crossing fingers, hoping this works...)

Preferred Method of System Creation

Long, pretentious subject, I know. But I'm curious to know what programs everyone is using when making their fictional systems. I have yet to find the "do-it-all" program, though I'm sure it exists (somewhere.) For example, here's what I'll use...(say I'm starting from scratch) StarGen htt...

Re: Anne McCaffrey's Pern

You know, at first, I wasn't too sure about the green. But now, I am inclined to agree. Green-blue it is! Thanks for the input. Any tips on spec maps? The one I have made is ok, but I keep getting dark flecks where I don't want them. I suppose the easiest thing would be to go through the map with a ...

Re: Anne McCaffrey's Pern

Which one, the blue or the green water? I like both equally well. IF I release this one, I want it to be as perfect as possible, simply because there's a pretty devoted McCaffrey fanbase out there, and I wouldn't want to needlessly tick them off. :lol: Also, while the other planets are represented, ...

Re: Anne McCaffrey's Pern

Here's some altered shots. I would need to fix some areas of shallow water and my spec map is giving me fits. But, what's here should give the general impression...

Re: Anne McCaffrey's Pern

A couple more. I know what's here may not be perfect, and it is still subject to a little more clean-up, but I'm pretty happy with it.

Anne McCaffrey's Pern

I know some people have expressed an interest in this one, but there has been one glaring problem...the real Rukbat is not a "golden G-type star" as described in the "Dragonriders of Pern" series. Recently, I've seen the concession made that the star referred to in the series is ...

Re: My First Add-On

Sorry for not replying sooner. I'm reworking said add-on, ie, fixing some textures that I thought were good at the time. Since then, I've come to appreciate I am quite capable of much better. The original is available on the Motherlode. I'm not sure when I'll get the update together, but it will be ...
