How can i displace earth continents on a UV sphere?

when i use the displace modifier it gives me low detail upon displacing the continents even at level 6, nothing seem to work. i even tried triangulate the polys. any ideas?


Not image resolution determines displacement result, displaced face amount is. Your ‘face resolution’ is too low.

I could guess your Subsurf modifier comes AFTER the Displacement mod if you say you’ve tried to increase “level”. This however is left out on your posted image.

thank you for the help :slight_smile:
