Emphasis there on not the best. I don't know if I just looked at the wrong files, but they certainly don't look like 4k maps. Seems to me, they've produced ~1.5k maps, upscaled them (badly) and JPEG'd them to hell and back.

is this using my cloud map on a earth texture or is from the link john VV sent?
