I have downloaded the file about 2 days ago (Europe Mirror 1).
My link is really bad, but the downloaded file works fine for me (in my case the download took about 5 hours with "stops and go").

However, you could check the downloaded file's MD5 checksum, as explained by Martin here:
http://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/mirro...ml#tex_install

Another idea, but I don't think it helps:
What kind of filesystem are you using ? NTFS ? Fat32 ?

This should be not an issue with this file, because I don't think it has any files larger than 2 GB within the archive.
But just for testing, I would make sure to extract the archive from NTFS to NTFS filesystem. (i.e. external USB disks are still formatted with Fat32 (for compatibility reasons)).

Hello "turtle91"

I download from "Europe Mirror 1" and I put about 20 minutes to download the file is its size (846816250) is identical to that given on the site.
http://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/mirro...ex_mirror.html

There is no link "torrent" so I download in "http"

I do not understand.

I used HTTP, too.
The reason for the very low download-speed is on my side (my poor 3G internet connection).
I just wanted to show, that the file on the server seems to be ok. So the problem must be on your side.

MD5-checksum is a way to test the integrity of a file(..or "data" in general....).
You can download the MD5-tool here:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/...rifier-utility

The tool should show the exact same MD5-sum, as showed at Martin's download-page for this package. (0e51845ebf66c4ca81e13c3f78a626fd)
If the sum is different, you have a corrupt file (even if file-size might be the same, but the contents are different...corrupted).

However, you mentioned it allready, but make 100 precent sure, that you really use 7zip.
I.e. if I try to extact the file using RAR, I got the same errors.

But as a first quick check, I would use the MD5-tool to make sure, that the downloaded file is ok.

So after downloading the tool (fciv.exe), all you need todo is just run on the command-line(cmd.exe):

"fciv.exe antelope_scn.zip"

The output should show the correct MD5-sum of: 0e51845ebf66c4ca81e13c3f78a626fd

Not sure how to fix this other than re-painting the markings by hand. Which could end up looking fake.

Looking at Google Earth historical imagery, it looks like the lakebed markings were washed out in Oct 2012 and redone in Sep 2015. Any imagery from then or later should be much, much better.

Just a heads-up to say it didn't (yet).

Clicking on "Download" from the Homepage one has 4 mirrors available.
Of those 4, only 2 have HiRes textures, but there's no link to Antelope Valley.

So, either one knows the link
http://orbit.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/mirro...ex_mirror.html

or he/she can't download those textures.

And thank you

Of course, also make sure you downloaded the file from a reliable source, there are quite a few alternative distributions around, that could not be working at all or even be harmful.

AFAIR, the internals of 7-zip did not change much over the past 5 years.

No idea, I don't know this domain. But I prefer getting such software from an official website:

http://www.7-zip.org/

You should always download software from its official website like this one for 7-Zip: http://www.7-zip.org/. Downloading software from other sources opens you up to downloading software with hidden payloads (IE malware). So stay away from "collection websites" as they could unknowingly be hosting infected files.
