Star Citizen trailer shows procedurally-generated planets

Star Citizen has been busy just prior to the holidays, recently kicking off its Alpha 2.0. However, Cloud Imperium Games isn't done. As part of its Holiday Live Stream, the studio released the game's latest trailer, this time highlighting its procedurally generated planet system.

Planets are constructed from the ground-up, down to its terrain and its atmosphere. The video walks viewers through what goes into constructing each individual planet, noting that because planets of this level of detail cannot fit in memory, CIG has opted for the procedurally-generated route.

The video below is constructed with full in-engine footage.
