Does anybody remember that thread a few years back we had about properly modeling and texturing Earth? I'm searching but haven't found it yet. It had a bunch of us submitting pics and procedures for getting the atmosphere right. It was big, but not so much as to need infinimap. Anyway, can anyone find this?

Ah, there's a guy who had a great tutorial. Dean Scott, I believe. A google search should reveal it.

I have poured over this tutorial as well and and made many Earths.... no very well executed I might add..... still learning..... HOWEVER.... I have been looking through all the treads and can't find how to display the "Earth At Night" bitmap on the Dark Side of the Earth. Can someone direct me to the thread or link that describes how to do that in Lightwave 9.6..... Once I get this process down, I can use it for other planets with molten rock and such.... anyone?? -Bill
