Artist Rendition-Accurate Exoplanets

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.

Some sneak peeks:
Kepler-452 (left=artists rendition, right=SE)
Image


TRAPPIST-1 (top=artists rendition, bottom=SE)
Image

Kepler-62 (top=artists rendition, bottom=SE)
Image
There's a LOT more that I didn't show in these screenshots, and I'll probably add even more based on new discoveries and requests.

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.
