NICE!!!! No more blurry earth now! \o/ Probably we should also improve the stars background. The stars look a bit "blocky".(Someone minecrafted stars? ;D)

AFAIR the problem with the stars is that those are mapped on a cube & it simply does not look very nice when some 'milky way' gfx is used there...

But we should look @ improving those also, I agree 100%.

Well iam sure a improved background like this would be enough. Dont need any nebula background. ;)

Did you test this background - Here I get gfx errors when using it  ???
Maybe x & y size should be the same...

I tried it with GLSL but without postprocessing (ATI poroblems).
The night light are awesome (and if I am seeing correctly, now the desert shines under the sun) but i didn't experience any resolution improvement nor other effects (such as bump mapping). They're postprocessing, right?ù

Wait perhaps some bump mapping at the highest cliffs (himalaya) during Dawn...

Kaslak_CG, could you please post your ufoconsole.log ?

The globe with high-res textures enabled should look like this:

You should probably check if you set the textures res to the maximum in the options

The game doesn't allow me to do so... it stays on "high"
