there's a 30 days trial of photoshop somewhere on the net, don't know if it's still active

There is a 30 days trial on the Adobe site (if it is still there)

Is anyone working on some sort of template we can fill in, say with some pre-made planets in a variety of colours for those of us without photoshop.

Just post a text(like the others), image of your creature. And physical detailed explanation of your planet. And then if this things i aroll, it could be implemented. It's easy to change the colours, and sizes and such of a planet, and a completely new one is also done in a whim so.

Ok then.

Planet name: ViSta
Planet description: Climatically metastable.
Surface temperature varies by around 5 degrees only across entire planet surface. Average temperature: 17C

Atmospheric composition in order if abundance: Nitrogen, Oxygen, water vapour, Carbon Dioxide, Xenon. Planet has very large cloud cover and has a misty atmosphere.

Surface topography: Flat plains eroded by rainfall, oceans cover 80% of surface. No mountains or rough terrain.

Civilisation name: ViS administration
CiV bio: The ViS evolved as complex creatures. the baren nature of their planet's land caused them to strive for simplicity above all else. When they achieved a sufficient level of technology they built new, simplified bodies for themselves and gave over the running of their empire to a colossal AI they designed. The ViS are found throughout the galaxy filling white collar administrative positions and running colonies on barren planets. They hold a secret respect and longing for the sea of their home planet.

 
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Wow, this is a fantastic idea.  Gives me the feeling of the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

Pardon only showing the eye of the Condranid, I'm still working on texturing and the method I used there only works for small shots like that.

Edit: Whoops, mislabled the Library Tab.

As in remake the planet using the technique in this thread or do you mean place your already constructed planet into a library file?

Sam, I'm not too good at cloud cover, but is this kind of what you were looking for?



Edit: Fixed Cloud Cover a bit

Hydro, I tried to pull off a Nauceanica. This look good enough to start work on the rest of the file or would you like me to go back and tweak things?

Something like this then? I came up with a slightly better method for cloud cover.
