I agree with Snail, it's the best looking rendition thus far put forth in my opinion.  
Me want see moar be done this with.  :D

Also, Aard, I want to reiterate my desire to see you try this out with a Mars texture.

Like Terragen?
Terragen 2 is completely procedural IIRC...

Actually, you could probably knock up a renderman shader without too much hassle, micropolygon rendering+displacement FTW

Will experiment.

Here's a screenshot from a realtime thing I made using GLSL... crummier atmosphere, and a funky outline. And no AA. Hm bleh.



And also the cubemap for that ugly thing.

It can't make continents, seas, or bland planets in different shades of brown. It's not making the texture, it's rendering the planet. I made the texture myself... although I did add a few utility functions to make it easier to modify cubemap textures without introducing significant distortion.

OH! I thought it was a procedural texture generator AND renderer. My bad.
