HD earth and saturn textures

I have downloaded the 36 gb torrent and I still find the res insufficient for my needs, I have installed the textures in the addons folder file path "C:\SpaceEngine\SpaceEngine 0.974\addons\textures\planets" so I know I installed the files correctly. Unless the way I did is incorrect if so please feel free to correct me. Anyways like I was saying the textures felt insufficient for my needs and I long for super high res saturn and earth textures, As both are my favorite planets <3. I am willing to download massive files to achieve this (more than 100 gigabytes), So I just want to know where these files may be available at? Also space engineer, Are you working on getting procedural solar system planets implemented? Or is it not a priority right now?

Did you see any increase in quality at all with the HD textures installed? For 2x better quality it would be roughly 4x the file size. If you want super high res imagery of Earth, Mars, or our Moon, you might as well use Google Earth (zoom all the way out for Mars and Moon). There aren't many high res maps of Saturn because it is a gas giant and the upper cloud deck changes appearance constantly.

Jupiter does this as well.

I made two comparison images. This is the so-called 'Eye of the Sahara'.
I think there is a certain difference.

It's not brown, it's green and blue dry

In Google Earth it looks not quite so colorful.

Well, it depends and it could vary with the source of the images, from a satellite or from the ISS, but the images are usually color enhanced or filtered in order to exalt different terrain compositions, or the presence of vegetation.
Generally speaking there's always some sort of filter applied specially if the target is seen from ground-based telescopes.
