This was an exercise to something I want to do in my Sci Fi TTRPG. I want to make pictures of all of the planets in my setting's solar system for my players. It makes for a really cool play aide and really gets them immersed into the game. I plan on posting more of these in the future. What I'm trying to find is a way to convert my texture map into one of the dymaxion maps you see in Traveller/CE. G-Projector doesn't do that sadly.
In addition, I'm setting forth a challenge to myself. I want to do thirty posts for every day this week, ending on the 31st, when I turn thirty. I think it'll be a good challenge and I look forward to trying it out. Thirty to thirty!
