I was thinking, while sketching out the Orbiter Enclosure I want to build, if I emulated the interior of something akin to a roomier Gemini without windows, it might be beneficial not to show what's outside but to have a less "pretty" visualization on board so the pilot can rotate and change views based on position information (essentially what Orbiter already does). What I would like then, is to have a different set of earth textures that aren't photorealistic (or specularly reflective) but with useful information like Lat/Lon lines, Political borders, etc...

So does anyone have an alternate set of earth textures that aren't photorealistic?

lat lon lines

How bout instead of actually putting the lines on Earth, instead you have a HUD that puts the lines on the screen as such that they ''look'' like they're on the surface, but really aren't.

I can't say I've ever seen one done for Orbiter, but it'd be really easy to pull one off the web and use it....
