Exo-planets with no textures

Post #1by Mariusz Kuźmiński » 20.07.2012, 18:24

Unfortunately, surfaces of all exo-planets I can see only as gray (star light coloured) spheres. All other textures - solar planets, moon, stars etc. are normally visible :? I'm using NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M on Win7 HP and 4 GB RAM. Please help!

Try selecting the alternate surface texture "Normal".

Right-mouse-button-click on a grey planet, move the cursor down to the menu entry "Alternate Surfaces..." then select "Normal". I suspect that, by default, the "limit of knowledge" entry is enabled since, after all, we really don't know what they actually look like.
