Tionisla Is Mars 8k

(Redirected from Tionisla is Mars 8k)


This OXP showcases the improvements on custom planets that were made available since version 1.89. It converts Tionisla to Mars. It uses 8192 x 4096 textures for diffuse and normal maps. This allows for high details on the surface from any distance to the planet. Obviously, with such texture size, it is recommended that you use this OXP on reasonably powerful systems. Intel graphics cards will have a hard time with it.

The diffuse map used is a reprocessed version of a texture originally from Solar System Scope. The normal map is a modified version of a texture originally by FarGetaNik of the Celestia community, used under permission (original texture here). Changes made to original include the addition of an alpha channel, a swap of red and green channels and inversion of original green channel).
