Your right the old iradiated is now inferno. I think I renamed the jpg on my website. And I dont know how to edit my previous post so here it is anew.
Also a suggestion for building depiction
1. Depiction of Buildings
The artwork myself and others are producing of planet surfaces don’t really lend themselves to this. (But I really like them and hope they make it to the game.)
Moo2’s way is the only way I can see working at this stage. Where there is a controlled camera angle, field of view and controlled terrain so that building can be super imposed over the top.
Here’s my suggestion. Have two pictures on the colony screen,
1.the planet in its natural state. Maybe a thumbnail that can be clicked on by the player and enlarged for viewing pleasure.
2.A depiction of the type of colony, its state of development, atmosphere and general type of terrain. As illustrated.
This was rendered as a whole hence the nice shadow and lighting.
There are quite a few challanges and problems to this idea. So Mui, Tyreth ,Aquatine if you think the ideas worthwhile exploring ill post a new thread.
