Earth Texture

Postby jafergon » Tue Jul 10, 2012 11:09 pm

Hi,

Recently I took a break from my large scenery project and decided to play with the Earth texture (I´m also space and astronautics enthusiast). I´ve replaced the default textures by a single large 21K map. The results are as you can see. Vehicle simulator is amazing!! In no other sim you can drive a car to your spaceship, orbit the earth and later splash on the ocean!! There's so much potential in this sim. After I'm done with my large scenery project I'll create some spaceships for orbital/suborbital flights.


(I've also been experimenting with sun textures, btw)

I've added a specular map... Here's the same scene with different sun angles...

that is the one i want in the VSF 2.5 the curve of the earth can be seen at a high altitude(maybe 70,000-60,000 lowest and 25,000,000 ft the highest :) :D )

Exactly like that! I´m also a real space stuff fan. As a matter of fact I did the default KSC and shuttle models included the first versions of Orbiter space simulator.
If vertical take off for rockets is implemented in VSF I think I'd do a KSC scenery for VSF!

I also like space, and is a bit sad Ilan have never bothered to improve this "extra dimension" of the sim. I would like to be able to travel to the moon, different planets, put objects like space stations where you can dock etc, and have full control of the craft with retro thrusters so I can stop. I have asked for this too but s far it's all been ignored.

Great work on the Earth!

Hi,

it is a great idea. I tried Space Orbiter Simulator but VSF looks better.
(I like "sci-fi" ;) )

Thanks 8-) Ferda

So I like the Idea of Space Ilan Should pay attention to these sort of Projects would be a very good improvement to the series!
