The Orion's Arm Universe Project Forums

I have been interested in virtual worlds since reading the Traveller books way back last century. Since then I have been exploring some techniques for procedurally assisted generation of planetary surfaces and how to render them.

A few years back I came across OA when looking for Stanford Torus articles, and first discovered Iain Banks (Banks Orbital). Anyway, I have some bits of software that can make reasonable planets - mostly using gimp to generate the source and a fractal etch process to scramble the images.

This one is a guess at what his Fire Planet (Player of Games) might look like. The polar caps turned out quite nicely.
