Welcome to Elysiun!

First, try to create a more helpful topic title next time, as you will get the help you require faster.

  1. I have not seen any real tutorial for static particles, but there are .blend files floating around that use them. You can study them as an example. One can be found here: https://blenderartists.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=41356&highlight=particle+static+blend.

  2. This is the online documentation: http://www.blender3d.org/documentation/htmlI/. Check it for how-to’s. Here, from blender3d.com, is an eye tutorial which covers your question: http://blenderchar.weirdhat.com/eyetute/.

3, 4, 5, 6) You get the idea from the other two ^. Use the search function here at Elysiun and the tutorial section on the Blender website. All of these things are covered somewhere.

THANKS. :smiley:

Now to Another Question i would like to know the ansa to

HOW DO I ADD ATMOSPHERES!!! Ive been trying for days now and i still cant get what i want. :frowning:

can some1 PLEASE!! send me to a tutorial or wright one for me PLEASE!!!

You really couldn’t find one with the search? :o

Ok, then. You have several options. Ramp shaders, halos, and meshes seem to be the most popular choice.

A video tutorial for ramp shaders can be found here (the second one): http://blender3d.com/cms/Model_Material_Light.397.0.html. After you learn ramp shaders, which are very simple, you would make a light blue-ish (assuming you want an Earth like atmosphere) that would only effect the edges of the mesh.

For halos, you have two options. One is to add a single vertex, in a different object, at the center of the planet. Add a halo material and play around with the size, add, and other stuff until it looks right. The other option is to duplicate the planet mesh and leave it on top of the origional, then add the halo material to the new mesh.

Here, env wrote a tutorial using a mesh: http://www.enricovalenza.com/realplan.html.

Hope this helps.
