I'm going to work on this tonight before i go out.
I hope i will have something to post tomorrow. if not, its not going to happen as i have other things i want to get on with.
my plan is to instance a low poly version of this and a modified version and have them leaving in an sort of exodus from their dying planet. the planet i have textured is a turquoise colour for the icy cold look.
...as i said hopefully it will get done. i've not forgotten about it, just not worked on it.
all the other entries are looking great and its good that more are entering this time around.
