Re: Verona Planetary System (Fictional)

Absolutely, jaw-dropping beautiful! Time well spent. And to quote a little Shakespeare, "Fair Verona, where we lay our scene..."

Spectacular! For the surface shots, what did you use?

It cannot be denied that their output, shall we say, borders on excessive. Again, no offense was intended or implied. I just would like to see other works...

Second that re: the Star Wars add-on. Ambitious? Absolutely. Executed well? Not so much. Maybe smaller sections, a little at a time, and well done would have been the answer. My 2 cents...

I rather like the "biologic" look of the Babylon-5 models...incredibly well done.

Re: Post your Celestia pictures!

So John, you just put down a bump/normal map and then color the sphere as your "texture"? Here's some systems I'm working on...a system near Nunki, and a rework of the Tegmine system...a more sublime change of pace from the deluge of Star Trek stuff. (No offense...it's been all a bit too m...

Re: Celestia Add-On Builder

Will the star builder have a feature to calculate decimal degrees or will it still be up to the creator to supply that info?

Re: new moon orbits Pluto

This will be neat when New Horizons gets there...instead of 2 Kuiper Belt objects, we get to see 6. Not a full sampling of what such objects look like, but it's something.

Bump Map/Normal Map Creation

Since there has been much discussion regarding this topic and how to make them properly, I submit this. It has been repeatedly pointed out that the GIMP and PhotShop plug-ins "normal map" and "bump map" do not project onto a sphere. However, if a texture has been created that alr...

Here's a system I'm still working on. Based on Monica Hughes "Keeper of the Isis Light" novel. This is the third planet in the system, the texure based on the Air Mountains in Niger... I've been using satellite images lately for textures (mainly desert and ice worlds), and I've been pretty...

How about taking the spec texture and then placing your light patterns on your continents? Then a simple save as "whatever_night.*" and VOILA! Lazy man's night texture...
