Have a look at the Midnight Pack that just came out. It has planet glows. snapshot001yj9.th.jpg snapshot006of3.th.jpg snapshot011zs0.th.jpg In the first two pics I posted you can see them around the planets. The third pic you can see them in the background. All pictures from Yesteryears.

Yacuzza said that it wasen't possible to assign them to the planet directly, he was doing it via adding that glow as a seperate object in the map editor.

yeah the spr files mention planet nimbus but like you all said,no matter how ya try it just wont apply.i even went as far as editing mdmoon with the planet texture set..it lost the glow function.

Thats how I got them ingame. You need to use the map editor and align the planet over the glow.
