Recently we have made some good progress on the exoplanet system for Earthsim so I put together this video to show some of the results we are beginning to get. The terrain is clearly bonkers, i.e. non-physical but it shows what you can do.

Everything in this video is done with some very basic settings. The very first version of the planet editor will let you change the simple things you see in this video

Later as we further develop the planetary weather and geological model we will have more interesting planets and effects.

The surface details you see as bold colours in this video are all sensitive to both temperature and precipitation so the detail system can be used for planting vegetation once the weather of a planet has stabilised.
