Planet Maps files are now stored on a faster, more reliable server thanks to:
As the combined Maps are approx 30MEG in size, this is extremely generous.
From here you can Download a variety of TEXTURES (the 'skin' of an object [or MESH as its better known]) as well as Bump Maps, Reflection Maps, and much more! Each TEXTURE is saved in either .jpg or .gif format, and are designed for specific use with the super rendering program 3D STUDIO MAX 2.5 although they are no doubt compatible with any other Rendering Package that uses standard images in the texturing process.
At present, I only have a selection of Planetary and StarMap textures available, but others such as starship hulls and various landscape textures will be added in the near future.
Simply select a planet or starsystem
in the menu to the left, and a list of images will appear, from
which you can select the map you want to Download. Clicking on
the YELLOW link will load the
fullsize image in a set pop-up window, and you simple need to right-click
your mouse button on the fullsize image and
select 'Save Image As...' to aquire it.
(There is a mirror link in GREY as a backup in case the image fails to load.)
Thanks to the serverspace provided by Nick Bacon, you should no longer experience dead links or time-outs, however, If you have any problems Downloading any images, please email me and let me know.
Good rendering, and should you need that little bit of helpful advice, I suggest you visit SCIFI-ART.COM as they have an excellent tutorials section, as well as a very helpful bulletin board.
