This model is a vast improvement over the old one both in realism and in appearance. I've been meaning to do this for a very long time, but it's impossible to compute atmosphere models on some newer GPUs (mine included) so I couldn't work on it. Finally got around to putting my old GPU in just for this, and I'm happy I did.

Screenshots:

Morning in Marineris


Foreground Phobos


Gusev Crater (compare with Spirit rover images of the rim)


Gale Crater (compare with Curiosity rover images of the rim)


Planet overview



Download (3.5 MB)


Installation

Extract the archive to models/atmospheres in your SpaceEngine directory and overwrite the original file. Make a backup of the original first if you want. The readme file contains the atmosphere model script, and optional improvements to greenhouse effect data for the solarsys.sc catalog.

Enjoy!

It looks more real, exactly like when we see photos from the Curiosity rover taken on Mars.

Look through the Curiosity thread, there are plenty of pictures there, or just do a Google search.

The image you spoilered was taken on a particularly dusty day smile Normally the atmosphere is clearer than that.

I had a momentary glitch - reinstalled, and all's well. But the glitch looked interesting:
