In a previous news post about Shadowing, we showed and explained the basic implementation of Shadow maps. InfinityAdmin has been improving the shadowing for Infinity and has done a lot of experimenting.

New Shadows part2

Betelgeuze is working on improving his textures for the planetary terrain engine. Every planet type gets its own texture pack and those can be mixed to get a lot of variation.
Here are some examples:

PlanetTextures 4 PlanetTextures 3

The shots above were mapped onto a plane and displayed in ASEToBin, so it's not the texture itself. It's a plane with the textures assigned (diffuse, bump, spec) and the shader. Plus each of them is seen with a slight camera perspective.
