Chris Jones SolSystem or Kobayashi Maru 0.9.x

Technical Details
----------------- This is the second of a three package series to upgrade the textures of the Solar System.
I separated this in several packages so that everyone can choose himself what he like or PC can handle.
I've tested the 2048 textures on a 1.7GHz, 256MB, ATI9200 system and the frame counter just only dropped one frame per second against the old 512 texture !!!
With the 2048x package the earth is now good enough to recognise the river Nil when being in orbit 8-)

The included screenshots show:
