I revisited an old idea of Triton having a liquid water ocean on it's surface shortly after Neptune captured it. Tidal forses during Triton's capture would have generated enough heat in it's core to melt water ice on it's surface. It would also have a thich atmosphere back then. After Triton setled into a more stable orbit around Neptune tidal forses diminished and the heat sourse faded away refreezing it's surface back into an icy wasteland we can see today. I did not pursued realism while working on this painting, just wanted to keep my original vision intact.

I have an idea : here's my post...
Can you do it ? First, I'm making my map, for the game eventually, and you should help. Nothing is mandatory, of course, if you accept, that would be great !
