    Hi @Shyam,

    The satellite view of our maps is the one that comes from MapBox that AFAIK doesn't use Google Satellite as the source for the background layers.

    If needed, you can add custom base map styles on Heavy Immerse to use other sources for the layers; you can find some helpful information in this documentation section.

    While technically it's trivial to add Google Satellite, I'm not sure if using Google Imagery with Mapbox API is legal and if it doesn't break any agreement with Mapbox and us.

    Here the result of customization image|690x307

    I'll collect some info about that before sharing the server.json file.

    Regards, Candido
