Methone and Rhea

Post #1by AurturoJane » 06.08.2019, 08:23

Can someone make a unique texture for Saturn's moon Methone? It's in hydrostatic equilibrium, not a bumpy asteroid moon, and is very smooth. Smoother than Europa, going from the Cassini images. Can someone make a texture to show Methone as it really looks like? Also, I'd like an addon for Rhea's hypothetical rings, every time I try adding them to the files, everything after it vanishes from Celestia due to an error.

Rings of Rhea already in Celestia Origin.

But we also need the texture of Methone. :think:

I believe I made a texture for Methone based off of the Cassini images in the Solar System Objects for Celestia tab. However the orientation may be wrong (this was before I started using Snowfall's Sphere Painter) I believe the current map is equator at top while the correct orientation should be north pole at top.
I have my messed up origins; I can't control my mind. Also, did you know that cashews grow on top of apples?

The texture is definitely wrong. I modeled a photograph.
