Maia real time planet rendering

Needed to get this rendering in realtime as a backdrop for the main menu. Has little flashes of light as meteors strike the planet. :D

Aaaaand this is the kind of attention to detail that pushes a game from good to GREAT. Is it impacting the gameplay or anything like that at all? No. Does it enrich the entire game experience, and give a big wink to more discerning players that the devs care about aesthetic depth and attention to material? Absolutely!

Yeah I want meteor impacts to be one of the danger events like earthquakes and solar flares.

I love the music in the video you sent via the kickstarter e-mail. It feels very much like the 1970s/1980s sci-fi horror game it's supposed to be. I kept expecting an alien to attack the base or something :shock: ! I can't wait to play it!
