Procedural planets update
Working on a more complex noises to generate more realistic terrain.
Earth-like planet, noises: Fbm + distorted Fbm. Level of detail is up to 10 meters on surface. Detail textures are no applied yet.

On the surface of the lunar mare, the vague contours of "ghost craters" are visible - those are ancient craters flooded with lava. The detail level at surface is also 10 meters.
Same planet types, but with another coloration scheme:
