Hey, nice list!

Do you know where can I find free decent planet textures of at least the 9 planets of our solar system?

Celestia

Celestia is a free real-time space simulation that lets you experience our universe in three dimensions. Unlike most planetarium software, Celestia doesn't confine you to the surface of the Earth. You can travel throughout the solar system, to any of over 100,000 stars, or even beyond the galaxy. All travel in Celestia is seamless; the exponential zoom feature lets you explore space across a huge range of scales, from galaxy clusters down to spacecraft only a few meters across. A 'point-and-goto' interface makes it simple to navigate through the universe to the object you want to visit.

I dont have any links right now, but I like this idea for a thread, and I'd just like to suggest that if you're planning to update the original post with the additional links that you somehow mark the latest additions to save people reading through the whole list to find the new links.

One link: Astronomy Picture Of The Day. I've amassed such a large number of great images just from this page over the last 5 years that I'll never need other art sources :)

(Note: images credited to NASA are OK to use in commercial games as is, but most others aren't.. so check the credits)

The listing for:

"A list of space-based games.. commercial or not:"

Is a link to "Space and Technology Generators" at this present time.

Joystick Required has a list of Joystick-enabled Space sims that you could use, though. I don't know where such a list is "findable", though I've thought about making one before.

Is that a typo, or did the link change?

Anyway, I've thought about making this a "project", and this may give me the excuse.
