Hi there,

I posted this same issue some months back; it had been resolved until recently. Seems to be happening again:
The Mapbuilder Overlay layer in the Google Earth Superoverlay KML isn't displaying.

Thanks in advance for looking into this.

    FYI I saw that this issue was mentioned alongside the issue with angle shading not showing in Google Earth, but didn't see that until after I opened this bug report. Feel free to close this out and/or merge with the issue Alex posted about the angle shading. Thanks.

    This bug has now been fixed- you should be able to display MapBuilder Overlay and Slope Angle Shading in Google Earth via the KML superoverlay.

    Thanks for your patience and thanks for using CalTopo!
