Default Procedural Planet

This is and is not a WIP so... I was updating my bussards for preTOS ships and threw them on the Horatio. I also added a very quick procedural planet. I need to fine tune it some (the planet) and tweak the lighting - but it looks nice.

The planet looks a bit splotchy. I think it's because of the clouds. Besides that, looks pretty good. There appear to be shadows cast by the clouds on the surface. Very cool.

Oh, and the bussards look sweet, also. That's an area that needs a lot of work on my version.

Thanks.

Yeah, the planet is a little splotchy even without the clouds. I did put it together in about 5 minutes so I think it came out pretty good. I have since gone back to it and I can only seem to make it look worse.

I need to work on the surface procedurals more and then just make a better set of masks (instead of using procedural masks). The clouds would be a mask too and they do cast shadows (very happy about that).
