    Default Would someone please orb three maps for me? [Completed]

    Ok, here's the deal. I'm busy creating a world called Novusvita. It's for a sci-fi novel series of mine called The Peoples of Algol Trilogy.

    I've created a rough map of Novusvita by copy-pasting parts of old maps I made using Fractal Terrains and GIMP'ing them together. To see if the coastlines and such will work on a planet orb, I want to have three versions of the map orbed over a globe before continuing.

    This is the kinda result I'm looking for with each map:



    Here are the three versions of the map I'd like orbed. The one's the not-yet-complete topographic map, the second's the shape map and the other's the rough tectonic map.

    Topographic map:



    Shape Map:



    Tectonic Map:




    Please help me out, if you can. I mainly wanna see if the poles work.


    (Note: Please excuse the horrible sizing of the pics.)

    Hi Roth, you can download Bryce 5.5 (or maybe even 6) now for free and wrap these around a sphere and render them at any angle, resolution you wish, light them how you want etc. Attached is an example from your first image.

    Thanks, but I can't download any setup files successfully. It seems to download fine, but when I try to run it it says the files are corrupt. This has happened when I tried downloading and installing Line Rider 2 Unbound, Need for Speed World and GIMP on my new PC. I use Goggle Chrome. I didn't have this issue on my old PC.

    Because of this issue, would you please complete my request?


    Edit: And if you do, please get rid on the shadow at the rim of the orb.

    Sure, no worries. Here they are. Rendered against a blue background to make them easier to see. Your poles are a bit pinched, one of our members, Su Liam has written a post somewhere (just do a search on pinched poles and you'll probably find it) about how to get rid of them.

    Thanks alot! ^^

    I'll be sure to fix the poles as soon as I can. =)

    Edit: Mainly the poles are as I intended (especially the mountain clump at the south pole) but some bits do indeed appear abit too squished. I must fix those.
