Hello everyone this is Jeremiah coming at yall with a requested post. I didn’t have time to make a tutorial because work picked up, and so I am releasing the blend file instead.
Explore and edit as much as you like and post your images below. But the only real thing you need to change to make a different planet are the textures and the Atmosphere Glow.

KNOWN ISSUES WITH PRESET
All spherical meshes are not UV mapped (causes strange edge effect from certain angles and causes texture in N and S poles to be warped, can be fixed)
May not get same result on different GPUs.
Organization of layers effects visual outcome.
version of GPU driver effects visual outcome.
For lower powered GPUs blender will crash this is because the texture size it too big resizing them from 6k to 2k will fix this issue.
