That is awesome Hornblower, keep going!! you are surely going to make good mods.

By the way, regarding your Apollo 11 landing site, I've found an elevation model of the 900 km2 around the landing spot if you are interested.

You can find it here, exaggerated 60 times in the Z axis.

I wish I could use this, but Cubemap doesn't support 3D models :(
BTW, the image I posted on the lander was actually Apollo 15, but I plan to make the rest of them too, and I already have Apollo 11

Well... while I'm here... more fun with hypergiants...

Just passing through...


The surface texture pic includes an Executor class ship (some 17 km long), and I think it is about 30 AU or so from the surface of the hypergiant. The camera is some 0.17 AU from the ship, and the field of view about 6 arc-seconds (from top to bottom).

Super close encounter between AURA and AQUA about 184 meters (604 feet) apart!

Just wait until you see how much scarier it is at 1x speed
