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
