The effect on the planet looks nice.
Do these pinkish moving spots always show up synchronously? If you make them appear and vanish randomly in time, would it look better?
Great suggestion! The bright spots occasionally comes through as a result of the surface scaling into a glowing sphere resulting it being quite uniform when it appears. Randomizing the timing is a great idea though and I’ll have to see how it fits with the current way the sphere is structured and animated - thanks!
