Updated: Adjusted the shape of Haumea and texture features to suit the real dimensions shown on Wikipedia. This update includes a ring texture and the .blend file as well for the best renders = ) the texture maps also include features caused by ring material and cracks on the outer lobes. i did my best to predict what Haumea could be like, and this is nearly as good as i can get without a flyby. enjoy~

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. ^^

you use gimp!?

is it possible to make a tutorial on how you make such good textures and height maps?

Haumea is such an interesting world... i hope in the next decades scientists can find more informations about all TNOs :)

me too <3 i hope the next generations of space telescopes can resulve more surface features, moons, and atmospheres. not to mention entirely new objects

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.

Well, it's a nice texture of Haumea. I'm gonna do a texture of Pluto.

Used your Pluto texture map for the base.

I like that equatorial ridge from the ring material, very nice

we do not have a lot of examples of rockey worlds with rings, and how that interacts with the surface. still a fun idea to play around with ^^ glad you like the idea.

hi, can you convert the .blend file to a .3ds file and upload it pls?
Snowfall-The-Cat's avatar
I can try. though 3Ds may have limitations at this polygone count. so i may have to try another file format like Obj or something ells that accepts textures.
any other file format sugestions?

no, it's a 3D model format that I first discovered on nasa's website

If you do Celestia i recommend .cmod

I'm using SemiAxes [ 970 770 495 ] on Celestia.
Snowfall-The-Cat's avatar
looks like i used
    SemiAxes [ 1160 898 589 ]



wikipidia says Haumea has a size of:

Dimensions 2,322 × 1,704 × 1,138 km[8]
1,920 × 1,540 × 990 km[9]
