The Blue Marble by Gannaingh32 The Blue Marble by Gannaingh32
We've all seen the Blue Marble pictures from NASA; they're pretty sweet. I wanted to make as realistic looking an Earth as possible and this is the result.

All textures are from [link]

Rendered in Terragen 2.

Could you elaborate more about the problems you're having? I'd love to help, I'll need a some more detail first.

basically, I need some general help with the heightmaps

and secondly, how to assign colors (ocean, greenstuff, deserts etc)

The heightmap should just be a single image map shader set to spherical projection with its location being the center of the planet. The colors in mine are also just an image map set up the same way as the heightmap, so I'm not really controlling where they show up.

This came out nice. How did you wrap the cloud map around the sphere?

The image map masking cloud layer is projected spherically, obviously using an image map shader, with the same center point location as the planet.
