Default Looking for someone to do pics for me....

Hey all I am looking for some new planet pics for my mod. I could do the old se4 stuff sort of. But these new 3d stuff not at all. So could some one run me up like a few of each size that look like crystals and some that looke like there are big plants. Of all the atom typs.


This would be of great help.

Hi,

Making planets and textures is easy if you have Paint Shop Pro, or Photoshop. Just go to Flamingpear.com and download Lunarcel. Take it a step further and get Gliteretto and solarcel at the same time.

Lunarcel is the main plugin for makin planets, you can even export a 'map' which is suitable for texture maping.

I hope this little info helps, Cheers!

Here is the sample process..

Make a lunarcel planet..


export the topographical map...


then take the map and apply it to a 3D Sphere and render it....


You will notice that the 3D render lacks an atmosphere but that's how the game would render them so I left that effect out.

Hope this gives you an idea on the process to make planets for se5.

Cheers!
