Hey! Such an awesome plugin, thanks so much!

How can I get different maps or potentially create them?

We're also experiencing errors while trying to use this plug-in on two of our machines.

One machine has an Intel Xeon E5 2670 v2 10-Core CPU with 2x Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards and the error message is "VC Orb failed to initialize with Error: wglCreateContext not available".

The second machine has an Intel Xeon E5 2687W v3 10-Core CPU with 2x Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards and the error message is "VC Orb failed to initialize with Error: no OpenCL platforms available".

We have no problem using the plug-in on two other machines with very similar setups: Intel Xeon Gold 6128 6-Core CPUs with 2x Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti cards.

It would be great to get this working on all of our machines, so any help would be a big help. Thanks!

hmm I used this plugin last year for a nice project.. now I want to use it again for the same project (opening an older project), but the plugin does nog work anymore with my new PC.

I have AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2950X 16core. With a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. I get an error opening the project saying: "no OpenCL platforms Available" :( .. I also have Element3D and Saber etc, and they don't have any issues with my new setup.. What can I do to let this work?

Umm..where do I find the plugin? Searching videocopilot for vc orb only brings me to this video that says to download it from videocopilot.

Hi Kevin
On Ultra 3d Earth tutorial Page on the right side bar next to the video screen you'll see at tab that says comments(should be 160 comments or so).
Right under that tab is a box that says "Tutorial Notes".
You'll find the download right under that.
