It was such a simple change.  Just a couple of changes to parameters used when getting the sat-image from NASA.

Would be nice to have a choice of the normal map, showing roads ,towns etc as opposed to the sattelite image.

You'll have to wait until the closed beta has ended and v3 is released to everyone.  Sorry :(

It does look better...apart from turning ordinary civilian aircraft into 'stealth airliners' due to the clash of colours that is! ;^)

Mind you I had trouble at school when faced with deciphering those numbers disguised in circles made up of different coloured dots - remember those?

They said I was colour blind so I couldn't be a fighter pilot after all...

Those new satellite images do look good though;

I have a separate colour scheme called 'Satellite' that I select when using the satellite maps.  Just use the drop-down and I'm in business :-)

I have had to resort to bright pinks & turquoises to avoid the Stealth flights.

Thank to tarbat's suggestion, the latest RB software, Beta V3.01 downloads the coloured satellite images :-)

Just make sure that you are doing this right and not opening an existing map :-)
