Yes, the size will double and there is a 150MB limit on a dream file.


I thought as much. I understand the balancing act you faced and I think the outcome was great. I commend you for having the patience it took to create this one. It looks really awesome with the Quest blind in blue.

An outstanding creation! However, I would really love to be able to change the rotation speed in a future version. Thanks.

If your asking if there are clouds in this dream. The yes, there are clouds. The screenshot does not show many clouds but if you watch the video preview you will see many more of them.

However, I would really love to be able to change the rotation speed in a future version.

Perhaps one feature to ask of StarDock and DeskScapes is a way to adjust video playback speed?

Couldn't you do that by making it a Dynamic Dream?

Dynamic Dreams are DirectX applications, this is a prerendered video.

A very nice dream, very smooth running and low on resources, but sorry, it is far too fast MB. It's like being on a roller coaster ride and that's a real shame. But I'm not complaining for the price.

I have a number of 3D Earth simulators and they are rendered in 3D DX9. Would a 3D rendered version allow for user control over the speed and also be a much smaller download too?

You'd be up against some really good competition for making a rotating Earth. Two of the best are 3D Earth http://www.3planesoft.com/pages/earth.html and my favourite http://www.fpsoftlab.com/earth3d.htm?

It would be really good if you were able to make something like this as a dream.

Yes and yes

I've actually tried my hand at programming 3D and it's not for me. While I can program utilities and tools, I can't seem to code graphic applications.

That would be nice. Also a way to fast forward to a certain point in a large mpg.

One...Great Job
Two...It spins as fast on my machine as the sample video show..maybe that because I have a strong graphics card...dont know
Three...clouds...i think the guy was asking if the clouds are dynamic and change over time or are they just a static image

Anyway to slow it down to a realistic rotation?

Master Baron, i have one quick question. I want to buy this dream, i really do, but i have had problems with some of your dreams not running well on my computer, brining my cpu through the roof. Is there any sort of refund policy if the dream simply does not work on some ones computer?

The dream should be taking two minutes to complete one rotation. The video preview takes only one minute. Please let me know if this is not the case!

Three...clouds...i think the guy was asking if the clouds are dynamic and change over time or are they just a static image

Clouds are static

Anyway to slow it down to a realistic rotation?

Wouldn't a realistic rotation be 24 hours

When you click purchase you will be taken to the shopping cart page. On this page is a Return Policy link. Give that a read.
