Why are my planets all blurry and limited specially earth?

Hello guys. I have a problem (is it really one?). Everytime I visit a planet, especially earth, I get no high definition detail as I see in the videos.

This is the best I will get on Earth (see attachment)

Why is this happening? My specs are as follow:

- NVidia Geforce GT 630 M
     Video RAM 2.6 GB
     Hardware T&L Yes
     Pixel Shader version 5.0
     Vertex Shader version 5.0

- Ram 4gb

Is it really something that needs fixing or is it just the way the program is build and I must download some extensions or addons?

Thank you!

The planets inside the Solar System are mapped using satellite images, not procedural generation. Go to another star system, and look at the planets there, with the LOD at 2.

Your graphics card is not the best for running SE, so don't expect very fast generation of the landscape.

Sorry if I sound blunt, but why didn't you just read the FAQ? If you did, you would've known that the textures of solar system planets are blurry since they aren 't procedural. Go to any procedurally generated world and the detail will be much higher(if your LOD is 0 or higher, the detail is fantastic in my experience) .

Yes, you are right. I read it right after this post and I felt like a total idiot. I am sorry.

Please lock this thread. I am currently downloading some add-ons for our solar system. smile
