New scene! Deep underwater!

My posts have been short lately, I've been busy. But soon I'll be on winter break, and likely much less busy, so maybe I'll do some ottification stuffs to make up for it. Any requests? hats, songs, stories, dactyls, manips?

I'm also exploring Randall's new magical thingy. So far the only other related thing I've seen was a small faucet dripping out the back of the smaller space ship. It was in a very hard place to screenshot though.

prepare the skittle-trebuchet.

I Think there's still a good chance this scene is just normal nighttime, and there was just a time jump between the planetary zoom and the bridge scene. That or whoever made it didn't think about the implications of the sunlight on the 3d render. But that's heresy.
