NASA Blue Marble Next Generation textures for Earth.  Textures are Level 11 worldwide.  Features 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.

Installation:
1) Unzip 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"

Most of the files in the archive were compressed with LZMA compression algorithm. To extract you need a decompressor which supports it (e.g 7-zip).

Thanks for the heads up, Orb. After reading of the same problem in the other thread, I re-tried my test on a computer without 7-Zip, and this time I was unable to unpack the archive.

I chose LZMA because otherwise the file size would end up greater than 350MB, which wouldn't have fit on Orbithangar.

For people who haven,t got the disk space, can they just use 1 month for example, July, or perhaps a summer and winter set to chose from.

No problem, everything is seperate. I'll stay with January for now and use the default texture for summer, my disk is exploding.
