Complete high-resolution pack (optional)

This section contains the entire Orbiter 2015 Mars tileset (resolution levels 1-11) as a single 7z archive. The archive has been split into multiple file fragments for ease of downloading.

All fragments must be downloaded before unpacking the dataset.

You need an extraction tool that understands the 7z archive format, such as 7-zip. Move the file fragments into your Orbiter root directory and extract them there. Allow the extractor to overwrite files if prompted.
