Rover -> NASA mesh, you can download it. You can convert it with my tutorial (Method number 3). Use Anim8tor.

Texture -> use the highest resolution Opportunity image, so you can have a 8192x8192 pixels soil texture. Use the NASA map for the landing site.

Cmod landing site -> use Blender to create a square mesh. Export it as an obj file and convert it to cmod. Use the tutorial to add a texture to the mesh.

Perseverance - the scale of things. The yellowish texture in the background has a 256k resolution, which is clearly not enough even to see the details of the landing site.

i think it would look nicer if you gave it glowing molten lava
thats a lot of heat to blow up a moon that big

Trappist, that is an edited model from the motherlode, the original texture that came with this model didn't even have lava on it. Plus, who knows how long john71 wanted this to take place after such collision event.

by the time that moon cooled down it would have reshaped it self into a sphere
so looking at that that occurred shortly after the collision

i also think the "asteroids" shooting out of the moon would be red hot too

I have several additional problems. Where is the other object from the impact? Where is the matter from the other object, if the Moon is missing a lot of matter? Where is the lava on the surface of Earth, caused by gravitational effects? How can there be electricity on the surface of Earth after this catastrophe?

There is also the points john171 mentioned, this addon really isn't scientifically accurate.
