Please John, all 4k. 2k is way too low these days. Even my old 6 years computer can handle 4k without troubles.

John,

the "spikes" on those pictures are too strong. They feel unatural. You should add more "smooth" variations in altitude of the various "large" features of the base texture, and very few "spikes".

These maps are beautiful, John. True realism, imho.

imagebox has a 10 meg limit so 2k images 4k's tend to be 9 to 14 meg

Thanks a lot John. This world is superb !

The specular is too strong, I reduced it for something more subtle (this is easy to customize). I added a cloud texture, and this world is ready to find a home star somewhere in the Andromeda's galaxy (one of the thousand sun-like stars I defined there) :
