Quote"Foster's is Australian for beer"

Only according to Fosters.
I don't drink and even I know that Fosters is well down the list of popular beers here in Australia...........

On more important things; I'm still in love with that planet - but that ain't Australia; not even close [it's way too green, for one.......hehe]............
OK, who farted?

I have simply put the continent a bit up north so you have a bit of tropical land going forward and not just desert. No thanks necessary ;)

Just bumping up this old thread again with a new sign of life from the Procedural Planet Pack I was working on. I recently gave it another shot. While it's not final yet, it already starts to show some decent results.

Check out this 3600px wide render: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s42/sh/9823c45a-4b0a-4102-a42c-35b6a960abd4/8113e6c4e0884ee06efe599f769d4280/res/6b20ea9f-3ff7-4ca9-b693-b2ca190a93b7/skitch.jpg

I'm 100% done with the displacements (continents, mountain ranges, coasts, islands etc.)
I am half way through with the texturing and coloring and half way with the global clouds. There will be a few more layers eventually.
The climate zones work well now, too.

Thanks
Frank

New sign of life. Clouds starting to come together now. Lots to do though, still...

the 3600pix image does the justice


only issue i have with it is that sun glare on the water bugs me for some reason

great realism!
The reflection on the water also irritates me, a problem I still haven´t solved in my planetary renders. I found it hard to find good reference for the reflectivity properties of an ocean from these distances.

here's a little near orbit shot, over a large continental plate near the equator.

It has been eaten.

Nice work Frank. I would use Ray Trace Atmosphere to fix the jagged aliasing on the horizon.
