User Reviews

  • Superb tool for planetary rendering (especially Earth). I recommend experimenting with the included config files and startup scripts first to get a handle on Xplanet's myriad options. Afterwards, there are several GUI tools and script collections available from other projects to automate downloading updated imagery and marker files.

  • it is great!!!
