i have had some requests to do Uranus itself. i fell in love with the rings and had to make this. ;p

Even though it is an addon for space engine, the Uranus texture is still in here to be used in Celestia etc. (just don't go posting it around without even giving me credit geez)

This addon modifies the atmosphere, rings, and cloud map of Uranus.

I modified the rings to include as many rings as we know of, such as the new outer rings and some faint dust bands. though i am sure it is not perfect. this addon also includes the back lighting effect that voyager 2 saw. as lovely as it is, i tried my best to make it as close as possible to the photos.

im not entirely sure how the polar hoods and weather on Uranus change with the seasons. but i am fairly sure this texture does not represent Uranus throughout its year fully. seasonal textures would be required for that in SE.

just simply drop the "addons" folder into SE and that should just work. cheers = )

Your textures of Uranus and Neptune are used in Space Engine: Steam Edition. Is your texture based on Voyager or Hubble?

indeed = )


They are based on Uranus and Neptune actually. no specific spacecraft images. just general knowledge of both worlds. if that helps!

Finally got around to looking at this in SE. I tweaked the atmosphere script and also tweaked the contrast and slightly tweaked the hue of the texture and got this i.imgur.com/IgAAZT2.jpg (screenshot taken in latest 0.9.8.1 beta) Magnificent!
