Geopolitical 3D globe with extruded, beveled countries and differerent texture options, current as of january 2016.
When buying a political globe you should check if it shows the current political state of the world. For example, South Sudan became independent in 2011, but many available globe still do not show it as a separate country.
There are two versions: - All countries as one mesh, with material ids for the colors - All countries as separate meshes for easier manipulation
The globe and grid are separate meshes.
Standard 3ds max materials are used, all preview renderings use the scanline renderer.
The countries are uv-mapped, allowing different colors for back and front side.
The texture sources are included as a layered Photoshop file with resolution 4094 x 4094.
Some Notes: - South Sudan is included as a separate country - Somaliland is shown as a separate country, according to its de-facto state - Alaska, Hawaii and French Guiana, which are far away of their main lands, are shown as separate items to allow easier manipulation - the Crimea is shown according to UN resolution 68/262 as part of Ukraine.

Wavefront .obj and files may need new texture assignments.
