Fictional: Solar Systems, Planets, etc.:
Future Earth

Summary:A fictional rendering of a polluted and "coruscant like" Earth without ice caps.
Description:To see it, you have to go in the Time/Reset Time and set the year 2998.
This add-on shows relative fantasy space rendering, not the real Earth image.

Some facts about the three texture map of this add-on:
-The Earth surface map shows the consequences of the greenhouse effect: entire countries, important cities (like Venice or new York) under meters of water.
-The Earth Night map shows a probable but fictional future aspect of the night side: very big cities, but recent:after the ice caps disasters, a very large number of cities will be rebuilt.
-The cloud map, based on the Stormy Earth add-on, shows the consequences of the pollution: a very big CO2-H2O cloud cap, like Venus, but a bit smaller.

Very nice add-on but I noticed Earth got 1000 km bigger in radius... Maybe you should update it and make it smaller

This is why we need to take care of the environment! Then again we probably won't live for 900 more years but still...
