Scarl - not ours - from a Library

Serendip - not ours - from a Library

Sheol - not ours - from a Library

Song - not ours - from a Library.
We may use this for Orienta ( formerly Quoneeria ) - a barren planet rich in Diamonds.

Wow, that's a lot! I've updated some of them now, and will do the rest of them tomorrow, but right now I have to sleep!

Trask - not ours - from a Library

Tsu Ni - not ours - from a Library

Tundria - Dannica II - a Colony of the Attican Republic - a bit like Earth in the Ice Age, but with its own subtlely different native eco-system.  Our "frontier world".

Venus - Terraformed - VENUS as it Will Be in 2138 - in Sol, Sol Dominion

@ Fiahowl

I was not trying to start a Competion - but just going along with the Spirit of the Thread.

Making all the Textures which I have - available to all.

I was also limited by the max. size of individual attachments - and the limit of four per Post.

I have three other Textures - also got from a Library source, which are too big for this Site to accept me downloading them .

Still - NVM - and any or all should be available to all who wish to use them.

Aye - True

If yours are going for Free - some of them I could really use.
For Planet Textrues and also Planet Maps ( in Mercator's ).
They are VERY good indeed.

I realise now that I REALLY need to do more Texture / Maps for lots of my Planets.

The problem I have is that the Sci Fi Game which this is all part of ( for me ) is on a Site where -
you have to load Pics into an Album, before you can Post them -
And, there is a definite max. total limit to the number fo Pics you can put into all of your Pics Albums.
That is all rather limiting - Lol.

Still - the Game has been running since Feb. 2011, I have been G.M. since April -
we have around 14 Players,
and I have things in the pipeline for the Game, for the next 5 or 6 months at least.

Karakris, is it okay for you if I download all of the textures and make them into one zip file, then upload them to my server? Would be a lot easier than to link to all your forum posts!

you can use all my textures. they actually are all from celestia motherlode. i just compiled them so you did not have to extract 240 MB of SSC files and notes along with the textures.


and what Sci-fi game to you play?

I Downloaded Textures from some Texture Libraries from the Web

These are already in Reactangular Format - see the "Planet Texture Generator" Thread
for Links to these Free Libraries.

The other ones - which I created - are from some Texture Creation Programs.

These are to be found in the "Planet Texture Generator" Thread - on here
They automatically do the distortion for a reactangular plot - like a Mercator's Projection Map - and the Map is then the right shape to use as a Tecture.
You just have to convert them to .png format - save in your texture library area. Then they can be selected for any Planet you choose - type the "Name" in, instead of say "Earth" or "Random1" etc.

http://donjon.bin.sh/scifi/world/
For this one you have to select the Option for Generating a Planet - and select Square then Create.

This is the one I use most often -

http://www.gharat.net/pages/planetgen.html

But here there are lots of Parameters to set - tricky but VERY useful.

This one is a bit more wierd

http://orbithangar.com/searchid.php?ID=2542

This one for creating Gas Giants

http://bruckner.50megs.com/Download/Program/planet_texture_generator_v2/

Also - Try Reading all the entries in that Thread - some Advice there as well

You can also go "raiding" - I download any Pics I find - from wherever, unless of course they are Locked in some way.

Thank You Very Much  :) :)

I am G.M. of a Play-By-Post Sci Fi Game, or Sci Fi Wargame - on a Forum Site called Armchair Generals.
Humanity ( and now some Friendly Alien Allies ), against the Galaxy Wide Empire of the evil Zetans, who breathe Ammonia. We are also Colonising and expanding - discovering New Systems and New Worlds - Building Colonies, Cities, Bases, Defensive Bases, Shipyards, Bio-Domes / Thermadomes.
Onwards and Upwards  :)
This started in February ( Stardate 2130 ) - and it is now September 2137.

Usually it is one week RL to 1 Month Game Time - I speeded it up during April, when I became G.M. - but now it is running more slowly, actually during the summer"vacation" period is is a bit slower than this, about ten days to the Month.

This is our "Krissyverse" - our "Local Area" in the Milky Way.

Can I do that ??

I thought as it is only saved in MY SIMULATIONS - it was not possible to do that.

There does not seem to be an Option to Save My Simulation to the "Community".

Something I wish we had - then Maybe, just Maybe -
Someone a lot cleverer than me could do me a BIG favour and do some of the Systems for me.

One of our Players did do a Sim for the Gamma System, which is his Dominion in the Game - New Byzantium.
He  was the peroson who put me onto the Steam Version of Uni Sand - but no other Players seem to have this Package, and I don't think that Player ever joined in the Forums here.

BTW - I only ever use these as STATIC ( Paused ) Sims - to do Views of "What Is" for the Sci Fi Game.

I am now gonna TRY to Upload the Uni Sand ( Ubox ) File.

OKAY - This Seems to have Worked - Whoopie !!

Added - A Comment

BTW - Why can I not write longer Messages properly in the Post Box here - Am I missing something obvious ??

Re: The Krissyverse.

I would have preferred to have used the "Known Stars" view, with all the knonw and existing Stars in it - that is Stars in the known Constellattions.
But this was full of "silly" lines joining up the Stars, which are meaningless in a Real situation - and look silly.
So - I went from the "Our Local Systems" and zoomed into our Galaxy.
No Real Stars were shown though, except Sol.
So - I turned it around 180 degrees, to put Sol at the "top" of the picture, with a "flat" view of The Milky Way.

Then - I just added Stars in, as we "discovered" them, from the Scout / Survey trips of our Ships - mostly the Attican Scout Force.  Attica Dominion is the most keen and avid colonising Dominion as well.

The Nasty Aliens were first met at Pandora System ( originally Zeta System ), so they have always been called the Zetans.

Their "Empire" extends from nearer the Galactic Core ( below the Pic ) - Outwards ( upwards ) to below Pandora System - so their Star Systems and Planets are below the picture, "off stage" as it were.
They are supposed to have conquired some 60% of this Galaxy.

Oh Damn !!

I asked in here how to do that - a while back.

I got no answer - So I gave up.

It has all been done now -
Not sure if I want to try to fit all of our "fictional" Colony Systems
into the existing REAL Galaxy - even if I could turn the lines off.

There does not seem any way to Copy one load of stuff from a Simulation
into another one.
So - I would have to start all over again -
Hmmm - LOADS of work.
I actually have X, Y, Z dimensional locations for all the "fictional" Stars -
But ATM Uni Sand ( UBox ) only gives us useable information on the Radial ( say X )
locations of Stars, relative to Galactic Centre.
The rest I have to "guesstimate", and Z dimensions would not show in a Flat view.

Hmmm - yeh could be - for another Game

Well - when or if this one Finishes.

Maybe in Five Years time - but this could Run for a lot longer.
As Players get bored. or leave - I just get more Players.
I have been G.M. since April - and it just keeps getting bigger and better.

ME - This is MY Universe, the Krissyverse, and it is just the way I like it -
So I have no Plans to leave it.

I guess - given enough time - I could Rebuild the whole of "our" Star Systems,
into the real Milky Way view.
