Well, this morning went all to hell in a variety of different ways, so I switched which tutorial I intended to do in favor of blowing up a planet. This is the tutorial I am doing instead.
Alright. I actually did this tutorial three times, and I don’t know if I’m using a different version or what, but I got somewhat different results. My results?
His planet is darker than mine with a far better and more realistic looking color spread and results. I don’t know if the difference was our starting settings, me misunderstanding a step, random chance, or what. I will play around with this a little more, because I think the technique has some potential for other projects I’m planning.
Also, I made a world explode. That’s always fun.
