    I used that tut too geamon. I just couldn't get the script to run so I had to make the planet base myself.

    It's interesting how everyone has gone 'SF' on this challenge (which is the natural thought). No steampunk, no fantasy (refreshing!) although it would be hard to see how you could do a fantasy planetary survey unless... it was some planet as seen through the crystal ball of a wizard or such like.

    Hmm, I have a bit of an idea. Though I don't know if I can pull it off. It is VERY different from the "picture of a planet with some info boxes" entries we've had so far. I'll do a bit of digging and experimenting and post it if it looks likely to work.

    If anyone wants a hint, one of my recent posts relates to it.

    I had an interesting idea, although time is now short, and I'm not sure if I'm capable of pulling it off. I'll have to do a bit of experimentation and see if it's doable.

    Assuming I stick with fantasy cartography, I'd like to become a World Builder, laying out not only a realistic topography, but also the geopolitical boundaries and at least rough descriptions of the countries and societies.

    Any ideas why it won't let me upload my initial WIP? It just sits there and pretends its doing something...
