That looks really awesome, John! Any chance of a 16k/32k texture/VT of Phobos and Deimos, as well as a 64k texture/VT of Bennu?

I think virtual textures are not working currently with mesh moons.

8k is the best I can do right now:

Did your memory usage increase after rising the scale to 128K and if yes, by how much?

PS: Amazing textures as always! :clap:

Thanks. 64 bit Celestia has no RAM problems in my experience. Only the loading time can increase, after that it is flawless.
