Hello folks,

I am currently developing my first OpenGL programs and successfully displayed 2D Lissajous, etc.  My goal is now developing space flight simulator like Orbiter and Space Engine.  I searched for learning books about terrain and virtual globe and found two books called "3D Engine Design for Virtual Globes" and "Real-Time 3D Terrain Engines Using C++ and DirectX 9" so far.  I have both in my handy.  However, I want to learn similar in OpenGL/Java programming.

Does anyone know any tutorials about how to texture an ellipsoid by using planet bitmap or terrain generation with heightmap data? How about procedural planet tutorials?

Thanks!

Thanks.  I googled them again and finally found them now.  I finally found XNA procedural planet source code that I was looking for many days since I discovered that on YouTube.  I now have to port C# code to Java and OpenGL.

The easiest way is to use cube-maps.
