|Summary:||Model of Earth with land and sea floor to scale.|
|Description:||This add-on provides a CMOD model of the Earth using 518,400 triangles. The Earth model 1x was created from data contained in the ETOPO2 database. The sea floor and land are shown to scale, with no exaggeration. Please be aware that a NEW database is now available, and has been created since this add-on was first packaged for use on the Motherlode. The ETOPO2v2 database can be viewed or downloaded HERE. To install this add-on, please read the author's README.txt file which is included in this package. To view in Celestia, use the Solar System Browser (in the Navigation Menu) to look for Earth_1x.|

I suggest you should dress this up with either version of Adirondack's "Earth without water" add-on. Because either texture fits perfectly with this model.
Excellent addon, indeed... The *ideal* thing, however, would be to also provide a second model, in which the seafloor is (intentionally) raised at sealevel. Then we could "dress up" that model with any regular Earth surface map.
