This heightmap is is based on the map of Planet from Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri. For those who have the game, it's the map with the filename 'planetx.mp', and since I don't have the expansion it doesn't have any differences in the updated map it has.
I've made this through greyscaling an image of the map of Planet and editing it in gimp to improve it a little.
You'll recognize or at least be able to pick out the Freshwater Sea, Sunny Mesa, Garland Crater, Mount Planet (sort of) and Monsoon Jungle (which due to issues with the source image had to be edited into a considerably flatter region).
Obviously those names will kinda only mean something to people who've played the game.
I have however removed a few things - the ice caps, and a few small islands that crossed the edge of the map on either side.
It isn't perfect, I'll grant, but it's at the stage I'm ready to put it up for all to see and play. Don't just colonize Chiron, built the planet's transportation system too!
Available on the fruit store shortly now.

It doesn't look too bad with that grf loaded, but I don't like playing in Toyland myself.
