Planet Textures and Cloud Map Suggestions

29 Sep 2017 22:06

I found a cool cloud map texture for Venus that works really well in the game. It has a higher resolution (2048 × 1024) and is more visible in-game.
It would be great if this could be implemented into SpaceEngine.

Venus's Atmosphere looks better if the colour is slightly less saturated.

Nice. I agree less saturation is better for Venus, it is naturally a pretty bland looking planet.

Here are a few other textures for Venus, I just hope they post at proper resolutions and sizes. They are all various sizes. I'm also wondering if it would work to use two or three layers of clouds, moving at different speeds, and slightly transparent to create a swirling muddy look.

Here are some false colored images of Venus recently taken by Japan's space probe named Akatsuki.
 Just a reference for cloud patterns.

Yes you can post different layers, at various speeds. Have you tried this yet with Venus?? And thanks for the textures... I am going to try to download a few, if not now soon... Try your idea out and let me know what it looks like.

Your pics are coming up in different sizes. You should correct it and post a link to download each one at proper size unless you found them all on the same page..The one I really liked was smaller than the rest lol go figure.
