JMII_DDS_Level0-4_32K
Virtual texture 64k, at dds format. It's wonderful, awfully gorgeous. Details are very accurate.

I removed the jpg release from emule, since no one shared it. The good news is it's downloadable by web ! In dds release, replacing the jpg release, I was incredulous about the quality... but it is still better. As it is big sized, some mates from http://www.celestiamotherlode.net/ share it on web. Quickier, prettier, I don't how one could ask for more... Two links to download it completely

earth_8k_clouds-121303-8kDDS
Clouds texture 8k, at dds format. It improves a lot your cloud map, but the problem is Celestia doesn't take in charge "moving textures" of that size.

The tip to pass through this limitation is to modify the solarsys.ssc file options for the Earth :

Atmosphere {
Height 60
Lower [ 0.43 0.52 0.65 ]
Upper [ 0.26 0.47 0.84 ]
Sky [ 0.40 0.6 1.0 ]
Sunset [ 1.0 0.6 0.2 ]
# Sunset [ 0.3 1.0 0.5 ]
CloudHeight 7
CloudSpeed 65
CloudMap "earth-clouds.*"
}

You replace the row "CloudSpeed 65" by "CloudSpeed 0", that's all. Clouds won't move anymore, of course... 'til a new Celestia release. It would be easier to place a ssc file into extra folder (he would keep all its properties, without changing the main solarsys.ssc) but unfortunately, Celestia doesn't (still) manage alternatives clouds maps.

Blue Marble PNG l5-l10 addons arkones
A world exclusiveness, for all that were valient enought to try the Earth at 64k png format, some complements can be downloaded for a lot of parts of the World, as Sicilia, New York, Hawaï, and so on. These images have been converted at png format, so you could use them with you huge texture to death.

It's Arkones addons, wich include additional levels (BTW closer details). You only have to uncompress them in the same directroy as you installed the main virtual texture. Some files will be replaced, but you'll be pleased to know that are included backup images as well.

Blue Marble PNG l5-l10 addons arkones-2
Second part of additional levels, png format, complementing the Earth at 64k.

I have disjoined them in two parts because I think this one is less convincing that the previous. But keep in mind that is a very subjective opinion... In this pack, you'll find addons for north america and Portorico.

Update : this png release does not fit anymore together with dds release of Earth 64k.

EarthNormal 64k VT png John
Virtual NormalMap texture 64k, at jpg format. I believed for a long time that the previous could not ever be dethroned, but this one has details much more elaborated. It's only when you go to high resolution you'll see differences.

On the other size, the zip size get much bigger: level5 is certainly the culprit ! For willing people, you'll have to be patient.

BlueMarble JMII DDS addons jdou
Again additional levels ? That's right, but this time, we go throught a next step, the twelve level... You must own dds earth 64k, and the result is... you may see it here.

You only have to uncompress the file in the same directory you installed the main virtual texture. Some files will be replaced, but you'll be pleased to know that is included backup images as well. You'll have to have Celestia 1.4 release, the first version to show these levels.

HTML files letting to lauch Celestia straight to the new places are included too.

It is included Los Angeles, Seattle, and... a few iraqi cities. That's pretty funny to assemble them for artistic purpose :(
