Thank you for making this. I was skeptical at first, but after testing it out, I nearly cried tears of joy. Your program allows me to overcome my greatest obstacle, the creation of a spherical 3D planet, that can be edited on Cinema4D.
A downloadable tool for Windows, macOS, and Linux
Planet Painter is a tool that allows you to create and edit nice little spherical planets.
- Lots of options for heightmap and color painting of planet surfaces, including procedural brushes
- Wide range of detail levels, from hundreds to millions of polygons per planet
- Stylized low poly / flat shaded look
- Terraced terrain style
- Export to 3D model, map projection and voxel formats
- Tessellated icosahedrons
What's planned (though plans might change):
- Randomly generated planets
- Export to more formats
- More terrain styles
- Object placement: trees, buildings
Disclaimer: this is an early prototype and work in progress. It has bugs and probably doesn't even work on some systems. Use at your own risk and don't say I didn't warn you. :)

Love the terraced style worl
could you create a flat version
Wow this is great! I have been trying to find a low poly terrain art tool and I think I have found it! As an artist and a fan of space this is just the best of both worlds for me. Thank you! Reminds me of Astroneer! ;) Also did you use Planet Painter in your hot air balloon game you're currently developing?
Thanks, glad to hear you like it! :) In that particular video with the air balloons the planet was randomly generated, but hand-made planets from Planet Painter could also be used.
thats exactly what i need :D
when does you add the function to export the planets?
Hi! Sorry, can't promise anything more specific than Blizzard-style "when it's ready". :) Not too much free time at the moment. Soon, I hope!
Very, very interesting! :D Fun to mess around with. You say you're planning to add exporting to other formats. Will this include 3D formats that could be imported to 3D applications such as Blender?
