After testing the Ganymede texture provided by Askaniy on DeviantArt and using the normal map from the current CO release, I found that the normal map and the surface map are misaligned on some parts. Checking the Ganymede map with the official USGS found no inconsistencies, so I believe the problem is the normal map. Maybe there is a way to fix this? However if you guys updated the Ganymede normal map then I might be wrong then.

I have my messed up origins; I can't control my mind. Also, did you know that cashews grow on top of apples?

We know about this problem, but not the fact that we will have time to solve it before the release.

On the subject of new object names from a while ago, I can suggest that those minor planets be also updated:

For example, 471143 Dziewanna (2010 EK139) and 514107 Kaʻepaokaʻawela (2015 BZ509). Furthermore, the following objects have been assigned new numbers: (523671) 2013 FZ27, (528381) 2008 ST291 and (532037) 2013 FY27.

No problem, just take as much time as you want. There have been already some pretty nice updates so far since the last version.
Thank you for your attention, and I can't wait for the next release!

This release will not have exoplanets from Sirius_Alpha and the new LUT interface from Gironde. But I will try to add everything by the end of this year. I know that you are all a little upset after this message. Hope for understanding. Sometimes I don’t have enough time for everything. :sad:

It's alright. I'll wait for the December 30 release.

It's quite alright! The extra time will permit me to improve the exoplanets addon and increase its quality.
