For your amusement and consideration.
Might make a neat texture trade out for earth.

Thought I would share something I found interesting.

Okay, now the next step is find a way to use celx to change the texture of a planet.

Then animate it, change the texture every minute or so.

Might be fun to play with.

If you guys are still interested, I created an addon which uses all the maps as alternate surfaces. I personally tested it myself to make sure the textures wrap around the earth, and they did. If there is anything you'd like me to change about the addon, PM me.

Ancient earth texture toy.
