Updated: improved colour and bump map. please note that this map is best used on a 3 axis sphere.
i will make a space engine addon available once it finally has that ability..
I love Haumea. got to wonder how such a fast rotation would affect how the surface and internal structure would work. affter working so much on the textures for my WIP solar systems, Pluto, and Charon i wanted to make some artists concept textures of how i imagine how Haumea might look. all we know about it right now is that it is egg shaped from rotating so fast, and it has a red area on its surface. I don't know if it is as red as i have it here though. but who knows.
If i had to pick, a visit to Haumea would definitely be on my list of worlds to see in my lifetime. too bad the focus is on Pluto and mars so much. I bet Haumea it looks completely different then how i have it depicted. i would love to be proven wrong by the real thing!
Use the maps all you like. just Credit me if you can. ^^

True, but like New Horizons they should also send more space probes into the transneptunian space. It always takes a while until they are there and is very expensive, but in return we get a lot of new insights every time.
ABSOLUTELY!! hope the next TNO flyby is of Haumea. everyone is crazy for a return to Pluto. but the others need to be looked at first. who knows what ells is out there other then the popular name. as much as any spacecraft would be amazing either way.
any other file format sugestions?
