Description
This is a model of the earth with semi-realistic shaders assigned. Night lights are realistically diffused when the model doesn't recieve enough illumination from light sources. For those with commercial bitmaps or higher quality ones, the model can easily be re-mapped, with all realism generated by the shading network maintained. Most material elements have names describing their purposes. The model is composed of 3 NURBS spheres, to increase the detail of the model, simply up the amount of section spans in U and V per object of the Earth. Four NURBS objects total: Earth Ground, Clouds, Clouds Glow, Atmosphere Volume.

The zip archive contains the model in the file format 'mb'. The archive includes all source bitmaps used in the creation process as well: Earth Diffuse, Earth Cloud Map, Earth Region Mask, Earth Night Lights, and Earth Topology Bump Map. It may be necessary to reload the bitmaps when loading the scene in Maya. Bitmaps are JPG 4096x2048.

A few simple attributes are attached to the Earth Ground transform node, allowing editing of a few common attributes without having to dig through the shading network. A directional light with all default settings was put into the scene to render these preview images, then deleted. Rendered with the Maya Software renderer.
