I thought it would be nice to start a thread with some inspiration for the devs. Nice pictures of nature and landscapes that we think Outerra should eventually look like :)

Here's one:

Multiple high quality pictures from space, shared by NASA :

I better understand why Cameni said he have difficulties to make a multi-level world cloud coverage, in real time. This is so much massive and full of details...

How about this? Its the hugest color map of earth I've ever seen. I had fun zooming in trying to resolve it to individual pixels. Files are absolutely Ginormous!  :o

Largest file is nearly 400 megs!

http://www.naturalearthdata.com/downloads/10m-raster-data/10m-cross-blend-hypso/

In the downloads section you will also find road data, train data, border data.......
It's a treasure trove!

Those arctic pilots have my respect there - not much a safe airspace up there. Also, that Syuz photo has a something special, that would be nice in OT - those half-planet stretched cloud shadows in combination with atmospheric effects of the near downed sun. Remember to seeing one short vid (newer seen it again afterwards - was a long time ago too) where some russian craft in space was crossing to the dark side of earth and showed, how before it gone there, crossed an cloud-shadow - that is really THE EPIC lighting effect.

Well, at least we still have our trusty space destroyer Burke, patrolling the cosmic ocean

Right next to the Space Battleship Yamato..........

Maybe Outerra will have massive space battles one day. (And we need caves to fly through!!!)

I downloaded the free version of Vue and played a bit with it. Extremely slow, but quite amazing results. Of course nothing realtime, but for inspiration :) Vue uses procedural terrain and "ecosystems" that populate areas with plants et.c. I guess that's a bit like Outerra works.
(This is not my work, just a sample someone uploaded to youtube)
