Planitia Update 13

I am so glad I bit the bullet on Planitia’s design. I’ve gotten so much stuff done since then.

Planitia is coming together.

The biggest problem I’ve got right now is that my terrain textures, frankly, suck. Anybody know of a site with good free terrain textures? None of my searches have turned up anything really usable, unfortunately.

EDIT: Thank you guys for the texture links. Maybe I can hack up something from something I find. Of course, part of the problem is that everybody is into photorealism for textures and I’m looking for something a bit lighter and more fantasy-ish.

In fact, if I had my druthers, Planitia would look exactly like this:

I guess it’s kind of silly to desire art direction when I’m not an artist, huh?

Name That Game 20!

I have noticed that I tend to present screenshots from around the 1996-1997 era of PC gaming, and this one is no exception. I played this game and enjoyed it but I think what I enjoyed were the production values. The game had an excellent intro and good voice work but the actual game itself was hard. I never got anywhere near finishing it.

Hmmm...Eye of the Beholder, maybe?

Name and developer, please!
