Planet texture, again

Sign in to follow this  


Not much time today, so i'll be short. You can view a full 2048x2048 planet texture generated with my algorithm here. By the way, if you are wondering why the corners seem "distorted", that's because it's a single face of a cube that is going to be applied to a sphere, so the deformation is taken into account when generating the texture.

It doesn't appear to tile. I assume thats planned?

Nice job though, I'm impressed.

It takes 135 seconds to generate the six textures (so about 22 seconds per view), running at 20% of a 2 Ghz CPU.

It does not tile, but that's normal, it's applied onto a cube. I could show the other 5 textures and you'd see that their seams all match perfectly.

that seems quite slow to generate, whats taking the time the perlin noise?, the texture generation dependant on terrain factors? etc
did u try the new perlin noise its quicker for 3d noise
theres a nice implementation in the glsl forums at www.opengl.org
(not that im advocating perlin noise for terrains though it looks crap :) )
