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.
