Now i interleave this process, so that i only have to keep in memory a single planet face at a given time. I reach 200 Mb (vs 2 Gb) during the generation process.

I also implemented texture compression, and it seems to run well.

I zoomed a bit over the planet at a few hundred kilometers altitude:
