A temperate titan would just be an oceana as well its crust would melt.

You could have a "temperate titan" in the form of a carbon planet, a type of planet that is hypothesized to form in a solar system that's a lot more carbon-rich than ours. You wind up with a crust made of silicon carbide and other carbides, rather than water ice, and oceans of hydrocarbons much like you'd see on a Titan. The atmosphere would contain hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide, and carbon monoxide. There could also be layers of graphite and diamond in the crust.

Here's the Wikipedia article.

you cant do it, all the oceans of methane and Ethane etc will be gases again

Veny nice screens !

What will be the difference between hot Jupiters and other gas giants, as it appears in SE ?

Last version, you was talking about titans fully covered by hydrocarbon ? How is this going ?





Want some music of mine ? Please go here !

There are heavier hydrocarbons that are liquid under Earthlike conditions. Our own crude oil is a good example. Carbon planets could have oceans of oil and tar.

THAT WOULD BE SO COOL!

Apparently, games developed using the old SDK for DK1 oculus rift won't work with DK2... sad

Hey, when the lava flow intersects a crater it doesn't fill it up, like a flowing liquid should. Just pointing out a minor detail there, but damn this is pretty.

This is almost impossible to achieve in a single-pass fractal noise function. Keep in mind that all you know is a position of a point. Only 3-dimensional coordinate - and you must generate realistically looking landscape with it! The better you can do is a function like this:

craterHeight = ...
lavaHeight = ...
height = max(craterHeight, lavaHeihgt)

This is work only on a slopes of a volcano and near it, at far distances height of a "volcano function" is significantly lower than height of other terrain functions, so lava with "go under ground". I made lava flows color/emission ignore this to make them visible from space.

Actually you might save somewhere (?) the position and the radius of near craters (but I don't think it's possible), and taking account of it while generating the lava flows, but I guess it would still need many unuserful iterations...

Anyway, SpaceEngineer, did you managed to improve their look?:)

Maybe trying to find different kinds of interpolations for each kind of landscape will be useful...

But what's sure is that those latest works on the new planets (lava worlds, ice terras and hot jupiters) are amazing. I'll be glad to see more screenshots of it !

By the way, why not adding some colored layers on the gas planets with life, and the ability to create biomes like palettes ?

SpaceEngineer, the frozen terra will be new type of planet right? how its will be call? frozen terra? icy terra? smile tongue
(icy terra with life tongue )

Actually I can't. Shader processor don't work like usual CPU. It is impossible to simply "save something somewhere" and use it later.

No, I work on other features.

No, it is not a new type of planet. It is just terra with low temperature (cold and frozen by SE classification).
