Artist Rendition-Accurate Exoplanets

19 Apr 2017 21:28

Title basically says it all. 
The goal of this was to emulate the look of the artist renditions of the planets, while getting as close as I can to it's ESI. I've kinda given up on the ESI aspect, but kept the looks.


Whatmough's 2018 Update
Sorry I've been away for quite some time. I've been busy with school, playing with my new pet, and other side projects. Probably another addon?
These are the first of the "few" user requests I've gotten, so lets just get straight into them.
Betelgeuse's 51 Eridani b

Spinecone's Exoplanets
TrEs-2 b

Isis/HD 189733 b

...the rest. To answer Spinecone's question, I've not heard of Whatmough's work, but i know I've seen them somewhere, especially Gliese 876 d. I wasn't sure if his artist renditions were meant to be made and all this was a massive misunderstanding, but hey, it's here in SE! The images are in order from the images sent.
Whatmough Impressions
Any more requests? I already got Kepler-90 up my sleeve.
Replace my old Exoplanets download with the one attached.

Why do you have TRAPPIST-1 g as an Ice Giant?

Awesome! But, Why TRAPPIST-1 G is a gas giant?

I tried as hard as I could to make it look like the artists impressions while still making it a solid planet, but it didn't work out.
If you're bothered by that, I'll come up with something.

kham132, there are other solutions.  You just need to change planetary surface colors and adjust the twisting of the clouds.  I could throw something together pretty quickly if you want.

kham132, It should be desert planet with venus-like striped clouds not ice giant or gas giant like as on first Trappist-1 System picture by artists

Also Trappist-1 g have 0.08 earth mass. it's too small/not enough mass to be ice giant or gas giant

This an example (striped clouds):

DoctorOfSpace, I already got something, but I'm interested in what you'd come up with!

You should make these mods into .pak files.

Doesn't look like I need to bother with it, you got it pretty good.

Create a WinRAR ZIP archive, in there, create a folder called "catalogs" and in that folder create a folder called "planets". Copy and Paste all the .sc files for planets into the planets folder, then in the WinRAR system, exit the WinRAR zip for your mod, and rename the zip archive to <Name of Mod>.pak, But make sure you are using the WinRAR zip system to rename the WinRAR.
