No.1 This project has been archieved, you can open it via File—>Open scene,Do not drag .mb file into maya ui,otherwise textures can not been rendered normally.
No.2 Please have a look at 'other files' to make sure whether I have uploaded the latest file in upper-right corner of this product page,if I have done,please download and use it
—Every texture is 43200×21600,there are five textures for this model,they are diffuse color,bump,specular,night light and cloud respectively
—Do not worry that your computer can not render it,all of textures will not cause crash,I have optimized every textures,the result is that this scene is very stable and every texture can be rendered normally
—No need to wait several minutes for loading textures,just wait two secends,then you can see the earth,and you can know which continents and countries you are looking at without rendering it
—I have made twelve earths for each month, they are different in diffuse color and sun angle,you can preview my other earthe to choose your favor
—Night light and Morning/Evening ray automaticaly appear in right areas, which depends on the brightness of the areas,and you can adjust.
—I had made several parameters, you can use them to make your favor effect, you can adjust color value, saturation, RGB value, bump value, specular eccentricity, specular roll off, transition between day and night, morning/evening ray, cloud color, cloud bump, atomsphere glow color and so on.you can download Readme.pdf (in the upper-right of product page)for more information
