Lovely Andromeda Raising on Mars...

Post #1by t00fri » 03.04.2005, 19:19

Hi all,


while testing my new 32k (gigantic) texture tiles for Mars, I
happened to "come across" this lovely scene: M31 (Andromeda
galaxy) raising on Mars...

Enjoy,

Bye Fridger

That first image you posted is spectacular. Not to say the others don't have their merits but the first one stands out.

Yeah, the first one looks great. You should enter it in the April 2005 Screenshot Competition (the March 2005 one is closed) as the April one has been getting little attention.

I thought you might like that one ;-) ...

NO, I am not in favor of the image contest for a variety of
reasons. For one, I also deeply oppose books being judged
at Amazon.com by anonymous illiterates ;-)

Of course that "smiling crater" is long known to me and with
my 32k monster tiles is about 40cm (!) in diameter on my
1600x1200 screen...

It was just a "clin d'oeil" to the Michael post cause I was quite sure of your opinion on the contest...

To my opinion, the shots contest is not really negative, just another way to communicate, I really don't take it seriously...

ElChristou,

indeed, I seem to remember that we exchanged some views about this in PM's (with reference to refereeing add-ons at the MotherLode...)

t00fri, very cool pics but of course these are not very realistic. You could never see andromeda with such a bright planet before you
Just do what makes you happy provided you do not infringe on another's happiness for there is no point in living if you do not have happiness.
[tex]Happiness = \[\int_a^b \int_c^d \int_e^f \int_g^h U(x,y,z,t)\,dx dy dz dt\] = 42[/tex]
If only we knew U!
