Nice Try. Unfortunately you did not separate Portugal from the rest of Spain, rendering this 150 $ a useless investion in my case.

Very Clean Model
Easy to use, with a lot of options and very well organized (by name).
Apparently missing plugin message has absolutely no effects on the renders

Way too many of these files are in ancient formats and should be removed

Good, but as per previous comments not perfect, although you can cut Portugal or Northern Ireland separate with Boolean or Procutter etc.

Description
Highly Detailed Geopolitical 3d Globe Mesh (171 separated countries) + Continental 3d Globe Mesh + 2 planispheres meshes (2 types) + 1 planisphere path (illustrator format)

High definition and very clean models

Simple and comprehensive nomenclature (see the summary info provided below)

The Package includes 3 .Max files, 5 .3ds files and 1 illustrator7 file

Geopolitical Globe : 171 countries flat meshes ready for customized extrusions (each country comes with his own UVW coordinate system)

Geopolitical Globe : 171 countries extruded (each country comes with his own UVW coordinate system) front faces, Sides faces and back faces for each country comes with differents materials ID so you can adjust colors, visibility or whatever easily

Continents flat meshes ready for customized extrusions with global cylindrical UVW coordinates compatible with geographical map you can find on internet (see example)

Continents extruded with global UVW coordinates compatible with geographical map you can find on internet (see example)

Accurate Lattitudes and longitudes meshes with differents materials ID for inside and outside (objets separated in 3ds file)

• Globe Sea

• All the materials used in the previews : Multisubobject shader
for continents and countries (front, side and back faces) , wire frame shader, ink and Paint shader for outline look, longitude and lattitude , Multisubobject shader (outside and inside faces)

Planisphere continents (flat globe) extruded and non extruded versions TYPE I

Planisphere continents (flat globe) extruded and non extruded versions TYPE II (with grid meshe inside)

Planisphere continents path (illustrator 7 format)

------- Polycount -------

* 3D Globe-geopolitical meshe (total, Continents & separated countries both flat & extruded): 255994 Vertices 307123 Faces (for details, download the summary info.txt provided)
* 3D Globe-continents meshe (total, flat and extruded): 219703 Vertices 173344 Faces
* 2D flat map type I : 23440 Vertices 46288 Faces
* 2D flat map type II: 36194 Vertices 32011 Faces

----------------------------------------------------

I / MAX version polygonal comes with differents materials ID (front faces, Sides faces and back faces) so you can adjust colors, visibility or whatever for each part

II / 3DS version (separated in 3 parts for .3ds format export : 64k poly maximum per objet...):

A/ extruded continents : 'FrontFaces' + 'SideFaces' + 'BackFaces' = the 3 differents materials ID are converted to 3 separated meshes (for easy materials changes)
B/ extruded continents : 'Ground-Z1' + 'Ground-Z2' + 'Ground-Z3'

III / OBJ version share the same carateristics as the 3ds version except that it uses quad poly (must be prefered over .3ds file if you don't use .MAX)

--------------------------------------------------------
For customized extrusions on the flats meshes, use :

- Solidify plugin for Max 4 and Max 5 : Solidify-r4.zip findable on the web
- standard Shell plugin on 3dsmax 6,7,8,9,2008

The Globe meshe without separated countries is also available ( product ID: 231069 )
