Update 29

Planetscaping is a powerful new tool to design and shape planets to your whims. Surface Lock, which gives a clear, stationary, and illuminated view of the surface of a rotating object, has been enabled to better observe how an object’s surface is changing.

Planetscaping (Surface Editing)

Create continents, freeze oceans, flood planets, and more with Planetscaping. Watch the realistic consequences of your actions unfold as you alter the face of planets. Learn more in our Planetscaping guide:

Surface Lock

We’ve made it easier to view how the surface of an object is changing by improving and enabling Surface Lock. This gives a clear, stationary, and illuminated view of the surface of a rotating object when you zoom close to it.

More Highlights
  • We’ve added a Blank Planet, like a blank canvas for Planetscaping, to the Add panel

  • Collisions have been further improved with updated frictional forces



  • We’ve exposed the Elevation Span, the distance between the lowest and the highest elevation point of an object, to better assist with Planetscaping

This update includes 5+ additions and 18+ fixes and improvements.
