Hey everyone.

Since LW 2018 can add some new oompf to Earth visualisations, I've updated my little maps site with stitched maps from Blue Marble. They're pretty big but I hope it's worth something to someone.

If there's a problem with downloading the files please let me know.

That's very kind of you, many thanks.

PS I noticed a small text mistake : first Earth Color Map (80k) entry - "Cloud Map"

It's funny how often the Blue Marble maps pop up. I finally played an online race of Mario Kart the other day and what do you know...

I wanted some big maps for the new Earth tutorial that Antti made for LW 2018. Finally a zoom down to my country of origin was possible with real volumetric clouds. Just missing one thing and that is the height of the clouds - but I'll figure that out ��

Thanks for doing the stitching! Every time I try to download the big Earth color map the connection resets just after it starts downloading. The other files downloaded OK.

Thanks for letting me know. I might change the download Location to Google Drive instead and see how it goes. It's integrated into my download plugin.

I'll write when it's done.

The files are now hosted by Google on my Google Drive so there should not be any problems with aquiring the files. I've also made a RAR archive containing all the maps so you can get everything in one go.

And again if you have issues, please let me know :)
