is there anyway to disable the warp bubble on a ship or at least make it small enough to not see?

I saw this picture and thought it would be cool to do some thing similar.

Of course it is possible, but you need to have some basic skills at Photoshop/Gimp and you need a lot of patience to place the lights exactly where you want them to be on your planet.
If you want you can start from earth's and took inspiration from it.

I have Gimp, but I'm not sure where the planet textures are. So
data, textures, planets (Planets Tex09890.pak) right?
what would be a program that opens a .pak file?
Sorry guys I'm new to this stuff.

A .pak file is only a renamed .zip file. If you rename a copy of the file in .zip, you can open it with any program that can open .zip files. Among other things also with Windows Explorer.

If you simply copied the script from the manual, you will have wrong quotes around the name of your star !
For example, you have:
Star    Mono

but must have:
Star    "Mono"

(Normally the character above the '2' on the keyboard.)

I am going to go out on a limb and say this is not possible but thought I might ask anyways, but can you create mods (3D models more preciously for ships) in something like Blender and import that into SE? Or will it only work as a pak file where everything is still based on pics?

Start here:

And a .pak file is nothing more than a .zip file with a renamed extension.

Hello, can someone please send me a link where I can find high quality textures of Earth? I tried going to this link: https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/Features/BlueMarble/ but I can´t find anything...

And another question, what do you recommend me when I make bump maps?, they always look bad...
