Ideas: Surface rocks, Atmosphere distortion, better nebulae

Hi guys,

First, let me tell you that I'm really amazed by this piece of software. And I got happier when I heard that it could be turn into a noctis-style game. I loved that game and I still play it anyway, I have some suggestions:

When you land on a planet with a thick atmosphere in noctis, there's an effect that distorts the looks of the star. I found that pretty clever, and think it might look good on space engine

Second: procedural rocks in the surface would look awesome. I know vegetation its a little more difficult, as it would look very different from earth's

One more thing: i think the procedural nebulas look unnatural. I have only found planetary nebulas and they're all round. I guess they could be a little different from one another, like, irregular in shape

ps: sorry about the broken english

Is there any way to use orion nebula model with different colours instead of current planetary nebula one?
Maybe changing some data files or something?

That's an interesting point you noticed. I miss rocks when I explore worlds. Maybe it is possible with procedural rocks to have a similar result :

Sorry to resurrect this post
but I came up with a good idea (so I think)
you could mix or blend colors in parts of the sandy and rocky planets procedural.
looked something like this really cool site
