Hi, everybody! I've noticed that a lot of you are wondering where to find additional or how to make your own textures, as was I. I searched the internet for a few days and I found a few resources that are either completely free, or they offer a free trial version. They are:

Solar Textures - https://www.solarsystemscope.com/textures/

Planet Pixel Emporium - https://planetpixelemporium.com/planets.html

Maps of Fictional Worlds - https://sites.google.com/site/mapsandsuch/maps-of-fictional-worlds

Land Planet Tutorial - https://www.deviantart.com/ucd/art/Land-Planet-Tutorial-4586548

Textures for Planets - https://www.texturesforplanets.com/

Materialize - https://boundingboxsoftware.com/materialize/

PixPlant Trial - https://www.pixplant.com/index.php

Experilous Planet Generator - https://experilous.com/1/planet-generator/2015-04-07/version-2

Hopefully, you can find one that works for you. Good luck, and have fun!

It works! great. I just wanted make Universal Studio intro movie with this result, so I tried to use element 3d, but seeming camera work doesn't really matching with this two plug-in, I hope you can explain how to make them work together on next tutorial. I'm so excited to see your move! Thank you!

im not to sure what the issue is but when i map a diffuse layer the orb just vanishes. if i make the diffuse blend 0.00 the white orb is still there. im guessing its not reading the texture right due to some setting possabily but cant seem o find the issue

Does anyone else have the issue that the shading isn't staying in the same place? When I rotate the earth the dark side goes with it.
