Render Whole Planets in Real-Time ? No Problem!

Hello

Perhaps something like this can be introduced to make Oolite planets more realistic, but Im not sure if there are any copyright issues or if this would really increase the sge of the game and slow it down.

Impressive! It is very pretty, but I think it would slow down OOlite on most systems. One of its charms is that you can run it on somewhat stale hardware and still enjoy it. In any case, the PC port people are working on planet rendering, and Giles has it on his list for the master codebase.

Best wishes,
Oscar
