Default Orbiter beta texture issues

Since the new texture format, including high-resolution coverage and elevation support, is a major segment of the 2015 beta, it may be a good idea to have a dedicated thread to discuss planet-texture related problems.

I've spruced up the download page at http://mirror.orbiter-radio.co.uk/or...turepacks.html a bit. Let me know if anything is unclear or could be designed better.

I don't see a link for Earth_Cloud.zip on the Earth Map tiles page.

It is actually at http://www.alteaaerospace.com/users/...217/earth.html (when you click on "Earth" on the menu bar).

Ah... I see. I didn't notice that Earth / Moon / Mars were also clickable.

South America has been processed
I hope to see Northern Europe in high res... (Finland, Estonia, Latvia). It's just a couple of tiles.
Every other heavily populated areas are included, but not Scandinavia or Baltic states...
Beginning to realize how far to the north I live.

Default New Earth Hi-res dimensions

I downloaded the latest textures from the site http://www.alteaaerospace.com/users/.../earthtex.html. The size of the zipped files are different, particularly Earth.7z.003 is about 100Mb smaller than the others. It's correct or do I have to download it again?

Working on it. Transfer of the updated files from Altea to my server has been very slow.

Sorry, I'm afraid you will have to try again. The sizes and checksums should be as listed on the web page.

Default Ok for Earth Hi res textures dimensions

I downloaded again Earth.7z.003; it has the same dimensions of others files. Only Earth.7z.006 is 1,2 Gb, as declared. Thanks to all! A good new year!!

Just downloaded Earth.7z.001 (file shows 4GB) but I cannot unzip the file. I am using 7Zip as recommended and I get an "uknown error" messege...
I re-downloaded it but experiencing the same problem...

You need the other parts. It's a split multi-part archive.

Earth is about 20+GB to download, lucky I am still using the textures from the previous Beta from April + the recent overwrite so I didn't have to download a lot again.
