Planet Thera

NOTE: This planet was originally created with a custom cloud layer, but at the time of this posting it's currently not possible to mod custom cloud textures. The custom clouds were shown in the images because once Keen implements cloud modding I will update this to include them. In the meantime I have modified it to use Keens earthlike clouds.

This is planet Thera. It's a special one for me because it's the planet that I learned how to make planets with. This is an earthlike planet (Biomes, Gravity and O2 levels are the same as the Keen Earthlike planet). Some of its unique features include:

- Custom terrain (heightmaps) hand-drawn by me.
- Huge cliff faces so big they can be seen from space.
- Epic ore deposits so big they can also be seen from space. Maybe even too much ore.
- Huge ice oceans that separate the land into three continents (and several small islands)
- Sparse forests (they do get a bit thick in some places, but mostly they're pretty sparse)

Update (2/2/16):
Since I first published this mod Keen has made a few changes that caused the cloud layers to become much more intense than intended. The clouds should be a bit less intense now. Also added Platinum ore to the planet definition so there should be platinum in the ground now.

How big is this supposed to be ?

It looks like all the various textures on this amazing planet suddenly turned old grass and ice. I think a Keen update broke this. :(

From what I've been seeing from other modded planets, you can now have custom cloud layors for modded planets.

Can you update your mod with custom clouds because now custom clouds textures work.
Thanks and always beautiful mod.

Hi DaveC9000, I love the Hightmap and atmosphere of this planet but was wondering if I could customize the environments?

Not sure you are active or monitoring this mod but if it is OK with you please let me know (If I ever did post it on the workshop I would be giving you full credit for your work).

Also I had a look what I could find of the files themselves and I am not seeing anything like what is described in Keens guide to modifying planetary environments…if anyone can point me in the direction of whatever it is that I am missing I would be most grateful. Thanks!
