This is the ground textures mod for any STOCK game. It is developed to work best along side Stock Visual Enhancements.

This mod adds ground textures to ALL celestial bodies within the STOCK SOLAR SYSTEM and makes scatter objects tangible.

 

Here are some comparative screenshots of the scaled space textures, courtesy of @RadGH

Comparative Screenshots

 

KNOWN ISSUES:

  • Clouds do not show up in main menu with Kopernicus installed. They do show up in game.

 

CHANGE LOG

2.0.2

  • Better texture compression for smaller download size
  • A couple new textures
  • DDS version for better utilization of RAM
  • PNG version for Mac and Linux users
  • Removed low resolution version after much testing and minimal performance gain reported.

Thank you to @Avera9eJoe and @Endraxial for the awesome scaled space planet textures. (that's half of this mods awesomeness!)

If you have Stock Sized Real Solar System installed, does it affect this mod?

For the planet textures: Does this pack include only the surface texture or as seen from space too?

Doe I need to get the Endraxials and Texture Replacer separately?

City lights disappear and i see this white small boxes. When i move the camera in that direction so that the sun is out of the view, the city lights come back,

Using SVE and the recommend mods.

That looks like a cloud layer not being seamless and it's probably less noticeable with scatterer.  Ill have to look at it when I get home on Tuesday

My view of Eve in the tracking station looks the same as Speadge's screen shot. Below is what it looks like from the map view while flying a vessel (i.e. with Scatterer active); the line is noticeable but I'm not even sure I would notice it if I wasn't looking for it... hopefully now I can "un-see" it! Looks great by the way, the best visual enhancement of Eve that I've seen yet!

I have to agree on the Eve thing, it IS the best visual spice-up of that wicked old ball of evil that I ever saw.

The seam was no big deal for me, but if you can fix it, well, even better.

I dont use scatterer and I still love this pack to pieces. Amazing job man. It makes the game so nice to behold. Thank you so very much for your time on this.

I'm a van-man, but you've got me tempted. I may come over to the "Mod Side'"!

Which is it: stock (red, bold, and underlined), or does it actually require a mod? I don't think we agree on the definition of stock...

He means it is stock improvements I think, not a re-imagining.

Is there a chance of some side by side images with stock and these textures?

Not meaning to disparage but I`m having trouble seeing the difference.
