Does anyone know of a somewhat recent tutorial on how to texture a planet? Thanks.
If you’re aiming to apply a world texture to a standard UVsphere, I’d recommend Greybeard’s handy LSCM UV mapping tute, downloadable from his site ( http://www.ibiblio.org/bvidtute/ ).
If you’re aiming to apply textures to a landscape, you might want to look at an open source landscape-generating program called terragen ( http://www.planetside.co.uk/terragen/ ) before watching Greybeard’s tute.
Hope this helps .
Thanks alot for the replies guys! I’m gonna try these out as soon as I can.
