Project TNO

fyr02 checking in, with my new project: Project TNO!

The goal of Project TNO is to make fictional textures of all large TNOs with proper color data and such.
This project originally started as a DeviantArt-exclusive project, but I felt the need to post it here as the main place where I will post updates, as I feel like more people will actually care about this sort of thing.

Here's all of the completed TNOs so far:
(307261) 2002 MS4

471143 Dziewanna

(208996) 2003 AZ84 and its (lost) moon

229762 G!kunII'homdima and its moon G!o'e !Hu

(532037) 2013 FY27 and its moon

The moon of 20000 Varuna
Varuna and bumps by MrSpace43.

(84922) 2003 VS2

(84522) 2002 TC302
Nebulae in the background are by Celestia Origin.

Version 0.4.2_01 (09-17-2019)
{113.3 MB}
Version 0.4.2 (09-16-2019)
{113.0 MB}

The only difference is that ver 0.4.2_01 has the model of 2003 AZ84's moon.
They are links because uploading them takes too long...

These are good. Looks like we have another good Celestia project worth taking. Keep up the good work, man!

Seems like something good for Celestia Origin itself.

Version 5.0.0 has been released! This time a fully prepared add-on.
Here are some of the new additions:
Added color and bumps for Pluto and Charon.

Eris and Dysnomia color and bumps have been added. For the Eridian atmosphere I used the Celestia Origin one.

8K maps of Haumea + bumps by Snowfall have been added. Ring texture used the Celestia Origin one.

Makemake has been added as well.

Kexitt's 2007 OR10 has been added with realistic atmosphere
In this screenshot, the surface color is wrong, but in the actual addon it should be fine.

Sedna by Kexitt was added. I am not sure about the color though.

2004 GV9 got a new texture.

Textures of 2002 UX25 and its moon were added.

Textures of 2012 VP113 and 2018 VG18 were added based off of jcpag2010's

MrSpace43, this thread is for fyr02's addon. You can make another thread for your textures.

If I recall correctly Sedna's color is similar to Mars, but I might be wrong.

I don't mind if he posts stuff here. This thread could also be for suggestions on the project and I quite like MrSpace43's texture.

Okay. MrSpace43, could you provide a download link for the texture?

Here they are:

Lunar Ambient should be set to 0.5, and there should be no meshes, and no blend texture.

No it's the textures that make the files so large.
