Planet Atmosphere

Node Description and Purpose:
The Planet Atmosphere node provides all the effects of a full planetary atmosphere, including blue sky, the red of sunsets, and distance-enhancing haze. You can control many aspects of the atmosphere to fine-tune or enhance a realistic Earth-like atmosphere, or create completely alien skies. The default scene includes a Planet Atmosphere node. Note that clouds are created separately using the Cloud Layer v2.

Additional tabs for Planet Atmosphere[edit]

A single object or device in the node network which generates or modifies data and may accept input data or create output data or both, depending on its function. Nodes usually have their own settings which control the data they create or how they modify data passing through them. Nodes are connected together in a network to perform work in a network-based user interface. In Terragen 2 nodes are connected together to describe a scene.
