Ooh. Do you you have the whole glove in Vue?

I may need to do an earth fly-in soon and have been wondering whether to do any of it in XStream and whether the join to the LW portion of the animation will be problematic.

That's very nice - how did you go about making the image?

I love this level of realism reached. I love the the starbase1 images too.

How to reach this level of realism?
And what should i do to use different surfaces to draw other type of planets?:confused:

I've made my model available - see my Earth Mk 2 thread.

For other planets, it is interesting... Mars and the satellites of Jupiter are the only credible targets I suppose. I am planning to revisit my Mars model when I have done the highest res Earth model - the use of normal maps and breaking into sections will certainly help. There are no clouds worth speaking of, but there is excellent height data, beter than for Earth. The colour maps are generally not flat lit which can cause problems...
