Earth: Surface Map Textures:
64K Jestr Earth Mark I DDS

Summary:64K Earth, color saturated DDS Virtual Texture.
Description:You can use levels 0-5 as a standalone 64K virtual texture. Each tile is a 1K piece of the map, which was based largely on the images found at the Blue Marble web site. To install, simply follow Jestr's instructions which can be found in his ReadMe.txt file which is included in this package. Please note that Jestr's installation instructions (and SSC/CTX files) refer to JPG files in their names, but this add-on contains DDS files, and it works fine when installed according to Jestr's instructions.

This map is great and also works with "Night Map 32K Earth Mark II".
But on the Taymyr Peninsula (northern Siberia) an error occurs by two reversed images at level 5. It's easy to fix: The names of the images tx_49_2 and tx_50_2 must be reversed.

@ Rich Try downloading it again. Sometimes the file doesn't finish downloading and you get the '.part' problem. Windows thinks it's a part since it's incomplete.

Couldn't extract VT DDS levels6-10, the computer is thinking it's part of a multi-part zip file....
