Methone and Rhea

Mod edit: Spam post copied from here. Poster banned and topic locked.

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.

Rhea's rings are already in the Celestia Origin.
Methone texture have already been tried to create, but to no avail. The available textures do not match the photo.

i do have a real-data methone texture

i also have this fictional one (made from photos with fictional stuff added on)... but it needs some work on alliment...

the vanishing from error you can't seem to find is annoying like crazy

Added after 11 minutes 5 seconds:
and how can a such of a small object like methone be so smooth, in theory it should be all lumby and stuff because its gravity is not strong enough to crush that all down to a sphere (other then its oblant shape due to rotation and other outside forces)

Added after 15 minutes 11 seconds:
there fixed the alliment of the known side

this should be close to the photos other then some spots then and there
