Gene Art - Earth-like planet by JiFish Gene Art - Earth-like planet by JiFish
Genetically generated Earth-like planet. Created using Jerry Huxtable's awesome Java genetic art applet.

Bear in mind, all I did is click on the picture I thought looked most like a planet!

Worked out looking better than I thought it would. I had the idea of an earth-looking planet from the start, as I thought this should be quite achievable given the limitations of the applet. It took maybe 20-30 clicks just to get a circle! The full thing probably took 150-200 clicks. (I wish I had kept some on the in-between images, now.) It's a shame it doesn't give you control over the mutation rates. Without fine control, it probably would have taken thousands of clicks to get a star-field in the background.

Here is one progress picture.

Anyone can do it, give it a go.
