Uranus Project Missing Data - Miranda by Snowfall-The-Cat Uranus Project Missing Data - Miranda by Snowfall-The-Cat

appears to not work properly in Space engine 9.7.4 Patch 09 beta


Simply go to the "Solarsys.sc" and under each moon make sure the nombers are set right like i show below:

        BumpTileSize    258
        BumpTileBorder  1
        DiffTileSize    258
        DiffTileBorder  1

Well here is Miranda! its surface is totally messed up for sure, and hopefully the unseen side is just as interestingly messed up to fit this little world! i even have it so its slightly nut shaped in Space engine like the voyager photos.

These amazing worlds are just waiting there full of secrets still very unexplored. Maybe I can inspire people to appreciate this amazing planet and its moons somehow idk.

I tried my best to fit the known areas in with the rest. it fits very well with the known Voyager 2 photos and continues nice i think to the unseen hemisphere. but don't expect it to be perfect, its an artist's impression really. I'm not going to spend all my life getting everything perfect.

Also wow. You really get to know a world when you paint it and see how it flows and feels. each little part is unique and special. its kinda like i discovered and explored an entirely new world for the first time or something all over again using a brush. If you really want to learn something, build it all over again.

Though just a note: the albedo brightness is a bit off. its a bit to bright right now i think. but its the brightest moon anyway in the Uranus system. if the addons don't all work please let me know.



welp.. 2 down, 3 more moons to go i guess. next will be Oberon. but for now I'm off to sleep.

=============================================================================

Painted and made in Blender 3D. Edited in GIMP.

And guess what. Use this all you like. i want it to be public for everyone to use however they like. so have fun!
Credit to me would be nice though <3 but whatever. just dont call it your own originally geez.

When will you do Umbriel, Titania, and Oberon?

i want to do them eventually too don't worry. but lately ive been a bit lazzy with them sadly. my work on Oberon isn't working the way i had wanted and it looks ugly i might have to redo it. its a lot of tedious work doing each crater and canyon.

Wow. Well done.:clap:
I would really love to see a video of an example of your basic workflow in making these.

Cool. Are you using CamStudio or something? That would be great if you do that. I really haven't done much texture painting, at least in awhile, so I'll have to brush up on that.

ive never herd of CamStudio = o i am trying a program called Open Broadcaster. but i should give CamStudio a try, certainly if it is free.
so you need to brush up on painting? hehe sounds like a pun to me! =3

Well, CamStudio is nice, I used to use it, but the picture quality isn't always the best. Artifacts from previous frames and stuff from what I remember.
Oh!!! How 'bout that, made a pun without even trying. XD

Fargetanik also made a map of Miranda. Maybe you and cirax can share your takes on Uranus' moons together. And Fargetanik already made a new texture of Uranus (looks just like JohnVV's), to go with his texture of Neptune (which uses Bjorn Jonsson's texture). I'd like to see all of those textures in future versions of Space Engine.

One of the contributors to Space Engine. His takes on Uranus' moons (he did not make a better texture of Miranda) are [[here|en.spaceengine.org/forum/17-21…

ok cool. I think ive seen these maps. looks like he just copied parts of the north to continue the rest of the Uranus moons. i am completely hand painting mine from scratch and adding new unique never seen parts to the south. Along with bump maps that follow the craters and canyons.

cool = ) though i don't know how well oceans would work on such a small frozen airless moon o.0

Beautiful! Good Work! Ok some places here and there are not 100% realistic, I get what you mean, but as a whole it just looks great!
I tested the Celestia addon, it works fine. LunarLambert gives it a nice look. And btw, funny troll Wink/Razz 
Also, I always wandered there must be a way to convert a bump texture into a mesh. Do you know how?

thank you! ^^ it looks well compared to the voyager photos so i'm happy ^^ its all i wanted plus the continued side.
lol I'm glad you liked my silly little comment about landing. ;p

i wish i knew how to make it 3D. The only way i know how is to do it in Space Engine and for Orbiter Space Flight Simulator. i take my screenshots of it mainly in Space Engine like you see above and here fav.me/d9qtrqp same with the other moons maps.
