Normal Map for Triton?

Post #1by CM1215 » 08.01.2018, 19:10

Hello,

Ever since I learned how to apply normal maps to CMOD models, I've gone crazy about them, trying to use them as much as possible. Here is Ceres for an example:

Now, I wish to find a normal map for Neptune's moon Triton, but do not know where to get one, if one exists, that is...
Does anyone here happen to have a normal map for Triton?

Thanks,
CM1215

Well there is no proper topography data of Triton avalible to my knowledge. Since its surface is very flat and the Voyager data somewhat limited I believe creating a DEM will be quite difficult (but maybe locally possible). That in mind, the best thing you can hope for is an artist's concept and I actually know one such fictional texture: https://kexitt.deviantart.com/art/Triton-maps-673821587

Ah yes, I do remember seeing that normal map...

I was looking for a normal map that would have the same 14k resolution as the highest resolution Triton texture available, though that may be asking too much.

I guess we'll simply have to wait until a new space probe is sent to the Neptunian system...
