⛱️🌴🌞<(Hello everyone!)

It is done with Blender.
You can find the interactive model here : fav.me/dcqbh92
Details: bit.ly/2z7vOdM
Did you know about the Apollo 15 Hammer feather experiment? nssdc.gsfc.nasa.gov/planetary/…

I added annotations for all Apollo missions landing sites.
Unfortunately my limited account on sketchfab did not let me add more.


Have an Excellent day, feel free to contest the locations.

Top help Todd you off those lines unless they were intentional, set your diffuse color to White and the strength to 0.

Very impressive that you bothered to shape the major valleys, craters etc.

Thank you dazinbane. Yes, When the surface is seen from an angle I don't want it to be too flat.

Still my fantasy would be a super detailed moon where you can land and explore, first person style.

It'd certainly be fun at first, but I think it would get boring before covering the whole Moon if you went totally mainstream realistic with it. On the other hand, work in some fantasy/sci-fi/conspiracy theory elements to spice things up, especially regarding what might be on the dark side, and now we're talking. The possibility of finding stuff like that is the entire reason I'd ever want to explore the Moon. Otherwise, the experience would just be at a lot of light grey rocks and craters of various sizes, broken up by even more monotonous virtually flat expanses. And I'm pretty sure the Moon has more virtually identical light grey craters than most anyone would care to see.

Hello LordDonovan i know what you mean, it feels very abandoned and grey. I learned yesterday that Apollo 17 found a patch of orange rocks. They said it was caused by ancient volcanic activity.
I imagine a high fidelity scan, that would make it possible for people to actually discover features. Since the maned mission covered very few miles.

You can fly around and check the dark side on sketchfab: fav.me/dcqbh92
The dark side is very different from the 'front', you don't have as much lava fields.
