Generic exoplanet textures

Post #1by cubicApoc » 08.06.2021, 13:54

Just a set of replacements for the stock exoplanet textures and asteroid.jpg. I've also included a generic desert world. For best results, dump all the textures in Celestia/textures/hires, and then find and replace all instances of "asteroid.*" in your exoplanet catalogue with "desert.*".

CC-BY 4.0, do something cool with them, with credit of course.

You can use Notepad's find and replace feature (Edit >> Replace...)

Now Art Blos' Celestia Origin has great exoplanet textures too along with atmospheres on such planets in the exoplanets file (which's used for the folder of the same name placed in the extras).

I guess this's good for users without Celestia Origin (for any such reasons) or those desiring to make addons with them.

To be fair cubic, these could be best added into version 1.7.0 for its final release (when it actually happens) to replace the current defaults.

Yeah and they might also need to be part of such a project as well.

I'm perfectly ok with this, fwiw. Those exoplanets have needed an upgrade for quite a while now. The default planet textures could also use a resolution boost, while we're at it.

A lot of base textures need a resolution boost.

finally we have a spacific texture for rocky planets, so they don't need to use asteroid.jpg, and asteroid.jpg finaly has a good replacement

Nice work, the default textures could definitely use an update! (Saying this as the person who made the current set back in the Pleistocene or whenever...)

If you're intending to release these as CC-BY, it would be useful to specify which version of the license you intend to be using (the current one is CC-BY 4.0), and put an appropriate LICENSE file in the archive. E.g for CC-BY 4.0 the text would be:

(for other CC licenses, there's a "use the license" link at the bottom of the page, the relevant text is under the "add this text" link under the "Offline work?" section)
