  1. Yet more fun diverting myself while we wait for KSP 2. Beginning to create a few of the shots from the release announcement trailer and thought the moon surface part would be fun to get started on. Need to add a bunch of random rocks and features to the surface but I like the direction this is taking. Also need to change the default GIMP lens flare to something closer to the video and then finally render it all in a larger format.
  2. More fun tweaking the planet generator.
  3. Refining the planet generator that started from a tutorial and steadily grown and morphed into what I have here. Finally added the ability to color distinct zones on the landmasses so desert,grass/tree areas, and snow topped mountains can be tweaked. Next I get to add the atmosphere with correct coloring as well as the various cloud layers. Craters are included but need some further tweaking as well. So close to done! The ability to add rings would be nice..... Fully procedural and adjustable. A few tiny tweaks and a Duna like planet begins to appear. Or a moon Would be kind of fun to bake out the textures and pop them into KSP!
  4. More random moon fun. Having my usual fun making simple moons in Blender.
  5. Older stuff I found laying around. Crafts were all downloaded from these forums. (Sorry for the crazy spacing, not sure why it gets all messed up) Planets and such Random crafts and whatnot Kerbals
  6. After seeing the jaw dropping announcement for KSP 2, I thought it might be fun to start a new thread for some KSP Blender related artwork. Planet ideas, basic craft renders, and all sorts of diversions to keep me sane while I eagerly await KSP 2. Taking some inspiration from a frame in the announcement video I threw together this quick probe flyby of a lava fractured moon. More fun with procedural texturing
  7. No, this is all just some fun in the node editor with a tiny bit of nudging in the compositor for some blur to the atmosphere.
  8. Thanks!! The node tree looks like a spaghetti mess but it works. Basic breakdown: To the very left is the workhorse of it all that generates the planetary noise. It uses a few sliders to adjust the land size and the amount of 'water' goes into ocean areas, it also serves as the main mask between water and land. Now as we stack things up in the center portion we add various parts to the planets. More land and sea controls at the bottom. Above that is where we can add 'rivers' or cracks in the planet that we can constrain to only land areas. Next comes craters, icecaps, and finally the ability to add city lights to the dark side areas. Colors, roughness and bump information sits in the center section. All that gets plugged into some basic shaders on the right and finally to the material output. shew! This would be the Mk 1 version of the node tree that I created by following along with a tutorial. My newer one is a vast improvement as I've fixed the craters to be more prominent if I want them to be and added more biomes to the land areas. How they did the night light masking is a bit dated and I updated that to work for animation in case I want to have fun with my planetary creator in the future. To do : Set this all up to bake textures out of the procedural portion. Just need to add some image textures plugged into various points and I'll be able to pump out diffuse, glossy, height, normal, and roughness maps of every planet. Would be fun to see some of these creations show up as planets in KSP. edit: clouds and atmosphere are on separate layers.
  9. My Kepler-186f made from a procedural planet generator I'm tinkering with.
  10. Messing around with @RocketSquid's rocket a bit. Still working on it but had some fun doing a static animation.
  11. A work in progress for @RealKerbal3x. Having fun with Photoshop filters.
  12. A belated welcome to Korbin from Jeb!
  13. Had a bit of fun with @oAsAo 's parachuting Kerbal.
  14. Had some fun with @aval5 's artwork posted above. Animated: https://i.imgur.com/XPdHm3a.gifv Static:
  15. Found this floating about and thought you'd be interested. https://venturebeat.com/2018/04/26/kerbal-space-programs-build-fly-dream-trailer-turns-5-and-gets-a-sequel/ Spreading the Kebal Love
  16. I remember sharing the original with several of my friends as part of my pitch to get them into the game. It worked! I'm sure people will be passing this one around as well.
  17. Not sure when or why I did these but here you go, some photoshop fun.
  18. When you first open the blend file it should open with the text editor opened to some instructions. They should help you but in a nutshell, you simply have to point the texture to the proper image. Fairly sure they are included but if they are not you can cruise over to textures.com (used to be cgtextures) and find two files. You'll need: PlasterWhiteDirty0160 for the helmet. FabricPlain0028 for the straps on his suit. Anything close to those in color/style should work. Have fun! edit: textures.com is free but you have to register.
  19. Been busy but I'm playing around with a few things. Here are a few low res stills from a Fomalgaut B animation I've been working on.
  20. For Halloween Jeb went as his favorite crime fighter from yesteryear... Had some fun with Photoshop and Blender.
  21. Your completely random Photoshop fun for the day.
  22. Took a try at a Blender version of pixel art.
  23. A completely random icy planet/moon I made.
