My first galaxy almost done (thanks for the advice Voekoevaka):

By the way, can someone help me make the the large and small image more transparent, because i'm getting a weird white haze around my galaxy.
Example:

Photoshop and Paint.NET
I can give you the textures of the galaxy if that is fine with you.

I see what's wrong.

On the RGB channel, the zone outside the galaxy should be black, and on the alpha channel, the surface of the galaxy should not be entirely opaque. It should show the distribution of dust in the galaxy.

I've seemed to have made problems even worse sad :

And the white haze has turned into a dark haze:

Crashman1390, as Voekoevaka said, the base texture (RGB) should have black background, not white, and for the alpha chanel you should have selected only the dust, not the whole galaxy. Also you don't have to remove the core of the galaxy on the base texture, only on the _sys map. And the textures should be power of 2 (2048*2048, 128*128).
I quickly made these, I hope it will help you to get a better idea of the process :
Exemple base (still need core)
Exemple alpha (Reaally quickly made)
Exemple "final texture" (base+alpha)

I've restarted in making my galaxy and I will be making a thread soon! (Mostly making re-textures for some procedural galaxies).

Can someone tell me how to extract the subsystems texture from the RGB texture this is my result:

There's no direct method.

In my case, I use the separate channels, and turn off the red channel. Then, I decreade the green channel, enpecially near the center.
When I see red spots on the visible light image of the galaxy, that means that there are nebulas, so I color these points on red on the subsystems map.

What i'm saying is that I am trying to get only the Blue, Green and "Alpha 1" channels by themselves.
(Sorry if I am saying what you already said but in different wordings).

Galaxy now has spaces between arms.

OK, I know this is the "Creating galaxies" thread, but there is no "creating nebulae" thread, so this is probably the most appropriate thread.

Every time I create a nebulae model, I get this blindingly bright cube of a certain color. I am going to post pictures and the galaxy model itself, if needed.

but there is no "creating nebulae" thread

Because they're pretty much the same thing. They use the same scripts. So it should tell you almost everything you need to know. Just mess with the color and brightness variables if it's too bright.
