    Is it possible to find/extract the game screen "planet" texture map from the XXL game files?

    Thank you MrX2.
    I haven't explored Pak/UnPak very much. I should have realized that it is for all things XL/XXL.
    Now I am a little curious about the "city-import/export" functions.

    That's a cube map, but not the texture you see on the planet in planet mode. The planet uses a composite shader (several diffuse textures and masks)
    The higher resolution textures are stored in \data\gfx\planet\textures
