Awesome HD Planets - 3d model 3D model

High definition and) extremely real Earth, Sun, moon and planets shader set for 3ds max 9 and later versions (Scanline renderer) with very high resolution textures (up to 12,2k).

Note: The zipped file is about 70 MB because it already contains the huge map textures.

Also note that some images here do not resemble great quality because the website system takes quality from them to make things faster. You can easily see the compression traces. I was disappointed when I saw this.


Complete Earth with rocky core and oceans, clouds layer and volumetric atmosphere.

Easy Material settings in material editor.

Night lights in the dark side of Earth. The night lights appear as the day light disappears by rotating Earth´s atmospheric gizmo. The magic of exclusions and transparencies.

Highly - realistic models with volumetric atmosphere.

Venus with cloud layer

Ready-to-render setup and environment with default renderer, no external renderers required.

Possibility of extreme close-ups and low altitude shots.


A high resolution model of Earth´s ocean ground - This bonus is hidden. Simply unhide it at the display panel.

A unique model of jupiter with its gaseous clouds moving - this can be seen by simply moving the animation bar - This bonus is hidden. Simply unhide it at the display panel.

A super real model of a meteor coming - in a separate file, inside the main zipped file.

The planets in order and moving around their eliptic orbits. But I can teach you how in case you don´t know.

Only Earth doesn´t do that because that could be difficult for you when trying to animate Earth around its axis only. But I can teach you how in case you don´t know.

You also have an extremely realistic and panoramic Starfield, achieved with real space photos.

And last but not least, 6 extra high resolution map variations of Earth´s clouds that you can replace by the current one (Australia – cloudy and hazy everywhere except Australia and New Zealand):

Fair weather – relatively few clouds over land

Storm warning – same as above, plus a cyclone, typhoon, and two hurricanes

Africa – cloudy and hazy everywhere except Africa and Middle East

Asia – cloudy and hazy everywhere except South and East Asia

Europe – cloudy and hazy everywhere except Western Europe

North America – cloudy and hazy everywhere except North America
