What happened with the Ganymede 2k-4k surface texture map?

I saw it on the Wayback Machine. But when I click the download link, it just shows Error 404. If someone has a copy of those maps, it would be appreciated.

What happened with the Ganymede 2k-4k and 8k surface texture map? (sorry for repost)

Sorry for the repost, but my question wasn't detailed enough. Saw it on the Wayback Machine right here: https://bit.ly/2NMC5U6. But when I click the download link, it just shows that the addon isn't available anymore in the Celestia Motherlode. If someone has a copy of those maps, it would be appreciated. Also, that Ganymede surface texture map I was talking about was made by John van Vliet. I doubt that the original map is a resized version of Bjorn Jonsson's Ganymede map.

There was nothing preventing you from posting in the same thread. Post merged.

I think John Van Vliet may have posted the texture you're looking for on the forum, but I'm not sure.

Yes I saw it, but it looked like Bjorn Jonsson's Ganymede map resized to 8192x4096.

I saw that the map had slight differences to Bjorn Jonsson's, and it looks ok to me. We'll never know what the original map looked like and why it was deleted.
