    Wip Jan/Feb '23 Lite Challenge: Into the Unknown

    Here's the my first stab at what might be a bit of an unconventional starting location: a dying planet. This is very rough and I will probably redo the texturing completely.

    Thanks Bogie! I made some progress on texturing the blighted planet. Next will be the setting for the planet.

    Very interesting. I like it when people go for out of the ordinary challenges. Will, be looking forward to this one developing.

    (Just a side note, there is a big texture slip in the northern part with the clouds.)

    Thanks! Looks like it got distorted when I warped the clouds to globe. I'll make sure to fix that in the next version.

    Fleeing a poisonous blight that has cursed their home planet, the remnant people of Ruin set off on their generation ship into the unknown. Where should they go? Will the curse follow them?

    Trying to decide what other details to add. Open to suggestions.

    Great entry Turambar. Maybe you could add the space ships they are going to use. Or something related to the misterious curse.

    I'm imagining this as like a point crawl adventure, so maybe you could add some other points of interest along the way. "Abandoned generation spaceship" "sparkling asteroid" "salivating asteroid" "dark sun" etc.

    I like the planet, looks great zoomed in.

    Good idea on the ships, I have added them in this latest WIP.

    Thanks Tiana! More good ideas to think about adding.

    For the planet, I generated a world using Songs of Eons and then ran the heightmap through Wilbur. I then took the heightmap into GIMP and created the relief and used it as the basis to paint the rest of the map (I also mapped it to a globe in GIMP).
