This really is the best thing I've ever seen on TurboSquid. I'm used to downloading rediculously triangulated models and getting cheap texture-mapped details. They're also typically impossible to modify in any way. This moon model is the best moon surface I could imagine. Everything is procedural and the craters are moveable so you can change anything you want. The incredibly complex and detailed Vray textures render perfectly and the whole scene renders at a good speed given the Vray displ
This is a tools for modeling of a Lunar Surface based on Craters.

Originally created with 3ds Max 2014.

The model is fully completed for Hi-Res rendering and is suitable for use in high-res film close-ups, advertising, etc.

Both from afar, and from up close you will get a maximally detailed and integral rendering.

The scene is procedural. You can change it or create a unique model on its basis. The scene contains preset instruments with which, creating any crater or canyon shape of any size, depth, or position you can easily model a unique surface necessary for your scene. Having confirmed a model for your unique surface, you can bake it, freeing the system resources and speeding up the rendering process many times. Afterwards, you can export your surface into other program packages such as Maya, C4D, etc. for further visualization.

All instruments and technologies by means of which the scene is created allow changing the level of surface detail over a broad range, which allows subtle scene optimization with any computational resources, and its setup for various purposes, such as 1080p animation sequence, or 16k stillframe. A manual with additional information and recommendations for rendering optimization and setup is included in the download. The document contains 12 pages of detailed information.

This model contains 4 separate objects:
“MOON_SURFACE” - Plane (Standard Primitive)
“HiRes_Area” - Cylinder (Standard Primitive)
“Sun” - Target Direction Light (Light)
“Camera” - VRayPhysicalCamera (Camera)

This model contains 15096 polygons with TurboSmooth OFF, and 59868 polygons with TurboSmooth ON (set to 1 iterations.)

Number of quads and tris, depending on the setting of the scene. The algorithm eliminates ngons.

And 2 separate textures: 768 ? 768px JPG (craters-diffusion, craters-bump).

Texture are created from original drawing.

This product includes 3ds Max versions with V-Ray materials only.

Preview Images are rendered using the 2.40 version of the VRay renderer. If you render this file using 1.50, or later version of VRay (but not older), you may have the same results as you see on the thumbnails.

No Photoshop or compositing used, Product is ready to render out-of-the-box. LIghts and cameras are included in the file.

Included with this download is a file that lists the render settings needed to produce images that match the thumbnails. This file includes information on lighting placement, exposure control and render settings.

No Photoshop or compositing used. Product is ready to render.

Lights and cameras are included in the file.

Model is not built into the actual dimensions, as its size relative.

No third-party renderer or plug-ins needed.

Image of Planet Earth is not included in the scene.

Model represents 60 of days of 3D work.
