    Default 3D Satellite Sytle Realistic Earth Tutorial - c/o BlenderGuru

    I recently discovered this tutorial by Andrew Price the creator of the blenderguru website and was amazed at the cool effects he managed to attain within blender while designing a "view from space" of a realistic earth.

    This got me to thinking provided you had a good resolution to your map and had gone to the trouble of generating a height map this same effect could be done on the scale of any of our fantasy maps. Currently im working under and NDA for a game project, but I would love to see if you guys come up with something cool.

    Blender is a free program so its available to all.

    Here is the link to "How to Create a Realistic Earth" in blender

    Enjoy and feel free to post your awesome looking maps if you get the chance to complete this!!

    Bookmarked the thread for future review. I'm not up to trying to learn Blender just yet - I still want to get a lot better at world building first.

    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.
