This detailed earth includes only two spheres,earth sphere and atmosphere sphere.It is easy to use ,you can transform it by modify the three-circles.
·This file which you will download is a project folder, all textures and images rendered included.
·Topos and UVs have been optimized,you can not see textures(earth and atmosphere) distorted in the Antarctica and Arctic.
·The transition from day to night is soft and convincing
·The specular on sea surface, none on lands,because the surfaces of continents and islands are rough
·Clouds can cast shadows on sea,consistent with the actual,if you do not like these shadows, you can modify them
·Night lights from cities appear automatically, it is not animation,night lights are controlled by the luminance of the earth(use some maya nodes),more lights casted on the surface, less night city lights will appear.Therefore, days can transition to nights seamlessly
·I did not test vray for this scene,I responsibly tell you that mentalray can successfuly render this scene and you should not use software render to render this scene, because every texture has towered the software dimension limit(10000*10000).If you like,you d better test vray to render this scene

Note: the texture are very large, if your computer is poor performance,you d better scale textures to small dimensions!!If you like to use software render ,you must scale textures to the size not larger than 10000*10000
