Does this require any at this stage?
We will only require
new art if Aquitaine or Tyreth decides that the v0.3 design needs changing to include some new planet types.
However, feel free to make and post more redundant art for existing planet types...
However however, it might not be worth
spending much time on this if we're going to eventually switch to 3D textured spheres for planets, which will require distorted square wraparound textures, rather than spherical one-sided images...
All the Tundra picts Ive done. There are 5 so far. (only 2 have been posted) have looked extremely cold and frozen.
I think Tundra is supposed to be extremely cold and frozen... why do you want to change that...? The name "Tundra" isn't terribly great, which is why we've been suggesting alternatives... I don't think we'd retain "Tundra" in addition to "Glacial" or "Frozen". (I prefer "Glacial" incedentally...)
And I already have 3 Tundra planet images... So... were only two of those made by you...? (I assume you're talking about the from space sidepanel images, not the surface images)
Jungle worlds - Primordial
IMO, "jungle worlds" are a subset of Terran worlds... How would these look any different from space? Perhaps jungle would be slightly darker green coloured...? In any case, I don't see the need for a separate planet type. You could make some more varied art for the current Terran type though...
"Acidic", rather than "Acid", IMO is fine to replace the current Toxic
I'm not sure about having both "Acidic" and "Toxic" though... it's not clear what the difference is...
And I don't really like "Toxic" to begin with, as "toxic" the word essentially means hostile to life, which isn't erally true in this context, as some type of life might like this kind of planet. Unnecessary human-centricism, I suppose.
I'm not a fan of "Swamp" in general either, but at least it sounds rather different from "Acidic", and isn't "biased". We do need something else between Methanic and Inferno though... having two extremes of temperature with only one environment type between them doesn't really work. So "Swamp" works there, I suppose...
Then again, "Ammonial" is nice, because it doesn't have a clear temperature connotation, but is clearly appropriate as "weird chemically" between Methanic and Acidic... It would also have a nice bright green (not foliage-like, but chemical-ish) planet image that would be quite distinct from the bluish Methanic and Yellowish Acidic (presumably...)
Also, it seems that "Barren" could be removed from the wheel, and placed off it like Gas Giants, Gaia and asteroids. Doing this would give a nice symmetry to the wheel, with Terran, Methanic and Inferno all being separated by two intermediate environment types:
Code: Select all
Acidic - Ammonial
Barren | Asteroids | Gas Giant
