    Good question. I've never done that in vue. Maybe create a sphere and size it up to encompass the planet. I haven't worked too much with the material editor but it seems have most of the settings you would be looking for. Transparency, specularity and so on. I might also look at fuzzy materials for clouds.

    Hey that's pretty cool. I think it would be cool to be on a planet like that. If all those trees were fruit trees, I had my computer, dog, and wife, I would be happy as a clown. LOL I'm an introvert as you can tell.

    Well, I'd like to see the results! I was thinking it could be cool to try and add a river or something like that...

    I'm curious are the plants an eco system? If so do you paint them on or, is it an eco system material? Or are they all i individual instances that are hand placed?

    Looks like you have to populate the top half of the sphere and then copy and rotate 180 degrees and then copy the second half of the sphere.

    Nope, it is half a sphere and I positioned the camera directly above. Yep, you can't easily get an ecosystem to grow in the underside of anything. I think your method would work though.

    I'm wanting to animate the globe slowly rotating though so I'll need to populate the whole things. Two halves should work.

    Yes you have to populate then rotate. Add a second eco and populate. Ecos will not populate on the underside, hope they can remedy this in Vue7.
