A planet generator that can create terrestrial looking planets either spherical, as a map or as cylindrical equal-area projection.It is best to use this filter with manual controls. Some controls are very sensitive and might go over board if changed too much so it's best to handle these carefully (e.g. the shadow controls).I don't consider this filter to be finished, there is still a lot of fine-tuning work required and especially the clouds look horrible as they are now. But as I have no time currently to continue working on this filter I decided it's better to release it instead of let it rot on my harddisk.Special credits go to Sjeiti for his Terraformer II filter which served as a basis to create this filter.
