Modeling an Ice giant.

Recommended Posts

I have decided that I want to model a planet to my liking to add to KSP.. May I present to you.. Herrous!

No promises for a DL link, I'm not even sure if I can get it to work, but we'll see what happens.

I would love to learn how to make KSP planets, that would be too awesome.

Can you load this in the game? I wouldn't even know where to start.

Do you intend to import the sphere?

I'm not sure how you want to integrate it into the game, but a mesh is not needed(in many if not all cases for celestials).

You should concentrate on the materials.(ie. diffuse,bump).

In case you don't want to completely rely on noiseshaders:

Here are some nice planetary textures you can use as a base or reference: http://freebitmaps.blogspot.de/2010/12/srgb-planet-trantor.html

examples:

And here is a procedural Sci-Fi world generator which is useful for creating bases: http://donjon.bin.sh/scifi/world/

I thought planets were made with PQS and height maps and not actual models? Sort of like how Planet Factory and Kopernicus works.

Hoth is also available there if you want to go with a similar style.

Edit: even more maps http://flatplanet.sourceforge.net/maps/alien.html

NASA Stuff: http://nasa3d.arc.nasa.gov/

NASA visible earth: http://visibleearth.nasa.gov/ (if you want to create a cloudmap)
