We are three students working on our first year project in a french
computer science school.
It is a planet-sized landscape generator based on dynamic libraries.
The goal is to allow the user to load some libraries (for example, a
ground, a sea, a clouds, a town, or a cow library : who knows) to
create an earth-like planet and to be able to walk through.
We provide to the libraries a Perlin noise function and some other
useful data, and we just call it thanks to our 3d engine.
To test the tools we provide to the libraries, we've made a Sun-surface
library and a Sun-atmosphere library : this is the result.
Other snapshots, some doc, and the source code can be found at
