See the original idea from our mate Barf here: :)

For the more techies, the planets are using rim lightning over a subtractive layer of diagonal shade. Nothing is baked on the texture.

The water uses a new animated displacement map and some visual tweaks.

haha :)

The differences are notable. I think that a more stylized look is more appealing that the metallic shining we had before.

Compare with the planets shown here:

What do you think, guys? Is it a step in the right direction? :)
We're eager for feedback here. ;P

That's super high quality- it took me a minute to realize that those were in game models, rather than images. :P

It would be good to see an image of just the water, though.

Probably we have to tweak them a bit to use the material color.
What do you think? :)

I've put a quick mash-up of shots with the latest graphic additions I wanted to share with all of you.

A brand new planet shader I've made today, which finished like an hour ago, and the last week's waving water that includes better reflections, real waves and tinting, as shown in the screeny of Kamino on here. So... fresh news for all of you.

Surprisingly the new pixel and vertex effects are even faster than the ones from the vanilla game. Props to my mate Barf/Scruples who originally had the idea for the planets.
