A brief introduction: I'm part of the dev team of a mod for Homeworld Remastered who uses Space Engine to generate backgrounds. We've put together a custom galaxy with a few set star systems in it, to better hit what the mod needs for skyboxes and to have important locations persist through space engine version changes. That's led me down a rabbit hole to doing custom textures for a planet in one of those systems, not so much because the mod needs it as because it's an interesting challenge.



Practically speaking there's an unlimited amount of time I could pour into refining things, as the surface of a planet is a vast canvas, but for now I've decided to call it done and move on.

While this galaxy was made for internal use, if you want to it out I've made the current version available for download. Be warned, it removes the milky way galaxy.

Named systems present in the addon to date include Higaara, Kharak, Kostenki, and Nirgal. These systems are largely procedural in nature, save for Nirgal, which is the planet with the custom textures.

There's really no limit to how much work I could put into this thing, it is a whole world after all, but I think the diffuse texture is getting close to me being done with it. I captured a day or so of it in animation form, including one of the stars eclipsing the other.

Dug this project back up after a moderate length break. Going to try packing and uploading it somewhere soon. The planet has lots of room for improvement, but has met my immediate goals.

A look at the current state can be had here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R108krWyrAg

I've made the current version of the add-on publicly available, in the edited first post.
