well, the release of my solar system is two years ago but since last month I'm working on some new textures for the planets. Inspirated by the fantastic images of the Cassini space probe I decided to start a updating of the sol system, including LOW and MEDIUM object files for better game play and of course new textures. You know me, I wanna do the most detailed an good looking system ever :) :)

At least some pictures of the updated planets, enjoy

old textures
with new textures and new body, jupiter is no more a perfect sphere

jupiter,and maybe saturn had a problem with the LOD models reverting to stock at certain distances,really kinda made the new scenery little...uggy

other than that tho,your systems are hip spiffy

What I also recommend is to add a gas atmosphere to the saturn.

Planets only get one "terrain " attribute, so it's either the rings or an atmosphere. Although someone proposed the idea of having two planets in the same spot, one smaller (like a core) with the rings, the other with the atmo. Bit of a targeting problem, though...
