Good. It was a cool project.

Within the past year we disabled shading with texture maps,
so that satellite image displays would be brighter. You should
be able to restore the gray shading by disabling texture, as in:

  GraphicsModeControl mode = display.getGraphicsModeControl();
  mode.setTextureEnable(false);
