Fictional: ArcBuilder Universe:
Venus v0.1

Summary:The planet Venus during the "modern" era of the ArcBuilder setting.
Description:This add-on is meant to convey the colonized and terraformed status of Venus in 3501 CE. The atmosphere remains fairly thick, and the surface is largely covered in warm oceans. The "continents" are those regions of the surface which remain above sea level, and are moderately to heavily vegetated. Future improvements will include an updated surface texture, as well as orbiting stations and surface installations. To install, please just extract the zip file to your Celestia extras directory.

NOTE: This zip file is also put together in a strange way. It contains not only the Venus add-on, but the missing components from the ArcBuilder's Mercury add-on too. The Venus add-on itself can be installed simply by extracting all contents to any separate, temporary folder of your choice. Then, you'll have to copy the Venus folder to the extras directory in Celestia. If you have already installed the ArcBuilder Mercury add-on, you can install the missing Mercury files from THIS zip file. Simply copy the gridone_update_11_05_06 folder to the Mercury folder in your extras directory.

You both are right. Anonymous, of course because without clouds "Venus" isn't the stuff we saw out of Magellan. It's blue with islands, that's it. Winner was right because jmdollan does great in ArcBuilder.

Not everybody is a skilled texture maker, so give the guy peace. His work on the ArcBuilder fictional universe is great.

This "Venus", without clouds, is a poor and ugly imitation of Earth surface. The author should make his works with more dedication. home page
