Here are a few WIP maps for my planned Traveller Campaign

Map 1: Community Sector Map for a RPG board (Pretty much DOA now) :(

Map 2: Sector Map for my Sol centric Traveller Campaign (based on the Usborn map of local stars)

Map 3: Test map for creating a system level map

The first three were created in Autorealm with backgrounds pulled from various NASA websites.

Map 4: Attempt to create an earth-like planet in Paint Shop Pro X2 using the cloud render filter.

There's some nice tuts floating around that shows you how to create really nice planets. They're often for PS, but translating to PSP shouldn't be a prob.

Nice job with the starmaps!
Let's se if the astro-types lets them pass

Wow great stuff. Shame your just a few weeks too late to enter our little monthly challenge. Last month was a star chart. Here were the entries.

Thanks, these are basically preliminary maps to try and figure out what can be done with the programs I have on hand. My next project is going to be to try and make a surface map.

I downloaded the Flaming Pear 30 day trial of Lunar Cell and with just a few clicks it really blows away the planets I have made so far.

You should check out Ascension's planet making tutorial for PS, definitely worth a look.
