Ignore this post if you are, but for your bodies with liquid seas/oceans are you including a Land Mask in your Alpha Channel of the main colour map texture (land as solid black, liquid as solid white)?

I don't exactly have masks for colormaps themselves (or maybe I do and I just don't know that exact term)

but yes, the lands have no alpha and only oceans have alpha, so if viewed directly from a image viewer, lands will be all black.

I’m confused by this. You WANT your lands to be black?

You want your land masses in your textures to have transparency while your ocean is completely opaque, resulting in shiny oceans and matte land masses when seen in KSP. That’s what poodmund is trying to say.

Well... that is what I'm trying to say

But the background of my image viewer is black so I mistook that as the color, and the landmasses are actually transparent

Rolling out all the moons of Shima in a while...

Here are the first two:

Pooh - a forest world, except that there are no terrain scatters right now so no actual trees...

Cranell - a sub-habitable world with a cool symbol shaped on it

except that this symbol serves nothing but a unique biome because it's just a cool photoshop brush I found

That formation... ALIENS!

Also "sub-habitable"

Looks like someone's read the Habitability Index I wrote on the KSS Wiki :D

I confess that I go to the KSS wiki at least once every two days...

Oh wow, some new pages have been added... Good... This pleases me

The rest two moons of Shima are done!

Porter - one of the few places in the Traverse system without Oxygen

really like how this one turned out

Young - this would be impossible to make without NASA's super high definition terrains

A small update:

The submoon of Young - Perry

A slightly larger update:

This mod is turning into spaceplane heaven now, is it? Literally a treasure trove of habitable planets

That should be common knowledge already. :wink: There are so many Kerbin-like bodies it should be cause for concern.

It would be a cause  for concern to me if it was at the cost of worse non-habitable planets, but... Just look at this adorable, pastel navball floating through space :3

This planet pack already has almost as many habitable bodies as KSS, and KSS has a lot of habitable bodies. :P

That's sort of the point the Traverse System exists :wink:

So I can eventually make a storyline that is a poorly disguised excuse on why there are so many Kerbin-like/Terra/Habitable/Friendly/Whateveryoucallit worlds

Now for something not so different

Brynhildr - the first of the continental worlds cluster

So now I'll have to think about making the rest 10+ Kerbin-like planets stand out...

Being extremely indecisive, I just completely remade Nyarlathotep

In other news, I don't expect a lot of screenshots to be made, as I'm planning to get all the heightmaps of the rest 10+ bodies done before applying color...

Annnnnd... that's the last one...

All 83 heightmaps are finally finished!

and only about 20 of them need to be colored!...

if you squint really hard you might be able to image what they look like

I can barely see them, but I did notice you made the height maps with the white polar caps still there? Won’t your polar caps now be super tall on the surface? :/  I did that once and it turned out pretty awful and yours are very bright. I suspect they are really tall.

hmmm... that's a good point that I somehow didn't take into consideration...

But it doesn't seems to be that catastrophic and I should be able to fix them without a lot of changes.

That will be done, and thank you for pointing it out!
