The Grand Tour Overlay of all bodies in the Solar System that I am working on contains many overlays that are over 8K on resolution (or 8192 pixels by 4096 pixels). Not all computers can handle overlays of up to 16K (16384 by 8192 pixels) and some older computers can't handle overlays larger than 4K (4096/2048 pixels). To see what size layers Google Earth can support on your computer, go to "Help", "About Google Earth" "Maximum Texture Size" I whipped up a lower resolution version of the Grand tour over the past few days with textures of all spherical objects in the Solar System with textures up to 4K for computers that are unable to handle 16K textures.
The Grand Tour Lite contains overlays of: Sun Mercury Venus Ceres Jupiter - Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto Saturn - Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan, Iapetus Uranus - Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania, Oberon Neptune - Triton Pluto - Charon
Venus 4K, The makers of some of these textures did an exquisite job cramming details despite their resolution.
Venus and Titan have multiple maps with topography, clouds, and surface being the map choices.
While most of these overlays look amazing from a distance as with Io here, zooming in so the sphere covers more than half the screen begins to show their pixelation. They are mainly more for fun viewing than education. Simple overlays like this were common in the days of the classic GEC forum when everyone had less capable computers. The main grand tour overlay has textures so detailed one can make the sphere cover the whole screen before becoming notably pixelated, as if it was an actual Google Globe.
sandbubba: TEK: Amazing! I have been going crazy trying to fix this problem. I followed your instructions and 1st try: English! I thank you very much and kinda wonder how lucky was I to find somebody who speaks Finnish and is tech savvy. Much thanks!

sandbubba: Therefore, I don't understand the language to follow simple instructions to go default English. I uninstall and re-installed GEPro and it does not reset. Any suggestions as to how to tackle this dilemma? I'm at a loss. Is this the right place for that ?

sandbubba: OK...might as well get into it. I was over in the Philippines (virtually) and some how, changed the entire language from English to (i think) Finnish.
