the water planet have a topo surface. or the earth is plagued with craters??
- Read the top line on the page: "This is the planetary data as stored in the source code." SvdB might be able to elucidate a bit more since he's more familiar with the code than I. The Water worlds are similar to the telluric worlds which are also "cratered". And if you look closely at other water worlds, you do see some craters (they might be there on the earth, but the shield makes it hard to see). --Fyzixfighter 11:02, 26 August 2006 (CEST)
- Ah, I see you were well intended. I will unblock your other IP address. My apologies. But the original article is correct; random water planets are generated with the "cratered" algorithm. Earth is a special case as it uses a picture of the real Earth, instead of being randomly generated. — SvdB 14:53, 26 August 2006 (CEST)
