Caves of Tau Ceti


Badge Awards

Another little adventure into a human colony in a far away planet.
I made the planet fully in 3D, with a custom bitmap for the land/ocean, with different highlights for each, plus two cloud layers and an atmosphere layer (a very thin one but it's there).
Hope you enjoy watching.
Rendered in Vue.

EDIT: after a comment from Malstorm about the low quality of the original palm trees, I replaced them. He was totally right. Thanks!

EDIT: wow! Thanks :iconreecito: for suggesting the DD and :iconkeremgo: for featuring it!

EDIT: the city is Atlantis from Stargate, as many of you have guessed. I changed some bits of it and re-textured it completely. I'm sorry for not having written it down since the beginning. I'm not sure where I downloaded the model from (because there are several versions of it available in several places) but I think it's from, by SGA-3D. It could also have been from Google's 3D warehouse (there are 20 versions or more there).

Thank you!
People frequently ask me for permission to use my images in YouTube videos (and some others don't ask but use it anyway...). Those that ask usually put a link to my gallery in the description.
Anyway, I'm glad you found me here. :-)

It makes me feel so good looking at this. You know, it looks like a terraformation of one of the Mar's moons, or of Mars itself. Amazing job, keep going!

I make images only as a hobby. I don't make money out of it. :)
