Please launch a random mode too, its too interesting for templates
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. :)

Really love what you've got so far. There's still a ton of features which could be added but it's incredibly easy to use.
I'll be very happy when the exporter is ready.
Awesome, this save me many time super simple to create you own planet, i have just one question, when you make low poly planets the brush effect are slow? thanks to share with us!
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.
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?
