Planet Appearance
« on: May 24, 2019, 02:54:56 PM »
Just an idea, but could the albedo be linked to the combined luminosity (HLS colour model) and reflectivity of a planet's water, land and atmosphere? This results in a planet with 0 albedo to appear black, with a matte solid surface, and a planet with 1 albedo appears white, with a gloss surface.

And what about linking the air density to the opacity of the atmosphere? This would result in being able to observe how the atmosphere of Venus gradually becomes clearer with lower air pressure. I think that it would also be good to add a disable button for people who like to have it their way.

Does any one else think that these are good ideas?
