Where can I find color aerial or satellite photos for use with Terrabuilder? Free is better, but I'd pay too.Failing that, can someone tell me where I could download texture files for use with Terrascene. I thought I could convert the targa file it outputs and use that.Epi

Free is better, but I'd pay too.The best free spurces are TerraServer and USGS GlobeExplorerhttp://terraserver.homeadvisor.msn.com/http://edcsns17.cr.usgs.gov/EarthExplorer/There is a good New Zealand free database at http://www.linz.govt.nz/rcs/linz/pub/web/r...exmap/index.jspUnfortunately, coverage for the most of the Earth is scarce if non-existant. You might find payware sites if you scour internet.>Failing that, can someone tell me where I could download>texture files for use with Terrascene.

Thanks for your response. They have some color, but mostly b/w. I did find one really neat site in the coming soon section of terraserver. It's at http://imageatlas.globexplorer.com/ or replace the first part with www. I'm not sure. They do seem pricey even for downloads. Also, you can't just save, or at least unless you know how to remove their name from the images. They're really nice though. I think I might purchase at least one download.Epi

Could be. I mainly just looked at my own area (around or just SE of Richmond, VA). It didn't do that there.Epi

I only looked at it real quick after seeing your post. Can the programs be used for building scenery? I assume the Terrabuilder on there is a different Terrabuilder.Epi

This is a different application and it cannot be used to build Microsoft Flight Simulation Scenery.
