NASA Blue Marble Next Generation textures for Earth. Textures are Level 11 worldwide, and feature seasonal variations in vegetation color, snow cover, polar caps, sea ice, and fresh water lake ice.
Two texture qualities are available:
Standard quality, about 800MB per month unzipped, 9.5GB for 12 months
High quality, about 2.1GB per month unzipped, 26.5GB for 12 months
Standard quality is recommended for normal use, but some shorelines and islands may be blurry. High quality is recommended if disk space is not an issue, and allows all shorelines, islands, and remote atolls to be visible in sharp detail.
1) Using 7-Zip or a comparable utility that supports LZMA compression, unzip the archive into the Orbiter root folder. A folder named "BMNG Earth" will be created, containing a sub-folder with the month's textures.
2) Copy the files that begin with "earth" into the Textures2 folder.
3) Open the file Config\Earth.cfg. Find the line "AtmFogParam = 5e-5 3e-5 4e3" and change it to "AtmFogParam = 5e-5 3e-5 1e4 ;4e3"
