Model of the earth, with cloud cover, stars, and glow effect. The image of the earth is 34K, which allows for photo realistic rendering.
There are six models included in the scene:
-Earth (With color and specular maps, as well as a bump texture) -Cloud (On top of the earth model, with a cloud texture) -Stars (With high resolution image for allowing movement of stars on z axis, as desired) -Atmosphere sphere (Adds specularity to the edge of the earth model) -Planetary glow (A volumetric model, to add a glow effect to the scene) -Sun Shadow (This is parented to the sun lamp, and insures that light doesn't illuminate the part of the earth that is in the shadow)
Also, multiple files are available for just the model of the earth, including:
OBJ (with MTL) DAE 3DS FBX PLY X3D
The four textures for this model include: CloudMap.png EarthMap.png EarthSpecularMap.png StarMap.png
All texture maps are unwrapped in equirectangular layouts.
