Earth with and without the atmospheric extinction. If the yellow and red tinting were a thin line along the horizon, I'd be okay with this, but here, it doesn't seem like this is correct unless the atmosphere is really dusty.

You're not right. For example, which is the color of the Moon? You may say it's orange near the horizon and yellow at high altitudes, and you'd be right. But near the zenith it becomes almost grey. From space it is grey too. So the atmospheric extinction is very noticeable on Earth. I'm not saying on a planet with 10 atm pressure, there the extinction must be extremely high. SE uses Eric Bruneton's atmosphere model, which is highly accurate. The Earth's atmosphere model in SE uses the default parameters, as in his article. So the Earth atmosphere model should be considered as "precise". "Improving" as you say, means refusing realism in favor of the subjective aspect of how stars should look like from a planet surface.

Well, city/suburb dweller here, lol.

I just thought that maybe it was a bit thick for Earth or it seemed to be dustier than typical (local conditions would vary of course), but yeah, nighttime screenshots are probably better on planets with atmospheres closer to that of Earth.

Holy crap, really? That is really great! Does the planet type, orientation, spin, star type, and atmosphere affect the magnetic field and colors yet? (for example green aurorae is from mollecular oxygen in the atmosphere)

Maybe that's how you find comfort terras with life, from basking in their green glow. wink

(magnetic field to retain atmosphere, green glow of oxygen consuming/emitting life)

Not yet. I made basic rendering just now. It was just one day of work (well, one night smile ). Be patient.

Also, will they be animated? Or at least 'rotate' to give the impression of moving?
