Inertia is that cool spinning of the globe effect in Microsoft Virtual Earth 3D. Well, it’s actually turned OFF by default so you wouldn’t necessarily know that inertia is available in Virtual Earth but it is. Go figure. Here’s how to enable it:
- Click on the “3D settings” button
- Click on the “Preferences” tab
- Check the box (the only box) for “Continue Earth motion after dragging.”
And that takes care of that. Now you will have the fluid motion of flying over the Earth and spinning the globe with complete disregard for senseless behavior.
