This Solar System HD addon contains high-resolution maps of some planets, moons and asteroids in the Solar System. It increases level of detail of some Solar System worlds many times compared to the default SpaceEngine installation (see comparison gifs below), or replaces the default low-quality jpeg textures with hi-quality png ones.
For terrestrial worlds (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon and Mars), there are even more detailed textures available – the Solar System Ultra addon. Note that it requires this Solar System HD addon to be installed for it to work properly.
To get information about resolution, sources and credits, please read this pdf document.
These textures will not make the level of surface details on Earth or other worlds similar to those of a procedural planet. They have a limited resolution (up to 200 meters per pixel), and this will be the maximum level of detail for these Solar System worlds.
