What kind of procedural planet are you talking about? Something like Minecraft? Terraria? Crashlands?

The basic principals are to use perlin noise.

i want somthing like Nomansky, but smaller.

This guy made a very good example

There is no tutorial but there are a few projects you can look up like this one:
Planet generator
Source code
If you are using the mesh sphere Godot creates it uses an equirectangular UV mapping, there is an explanation here about creating a cube map using perlin noise and converting it to equirectangular UV mapping.
I made a little test but not created the textures procedurally.

I found this tutorial that seems to be a nice start.

Note: In the tutorial he uses a Perlin noise shader that I couldn't find, I used this instead.
