POSKY 747 Ver 3 - widely varying file sizes?

Recommended Posts

Could somebody tell me why the files sizes for various repaints of this aircraft vary so greatly -- from 1.6 megs up to 5.6 megs.Thanks Barry

Hi Barry,most likely it's the texture sizes - have you ever tinkered with Photoshop and seen what a .gif image of a couple kb size can turn into? Basically, the more detailed, the bigger it gets - 32bit textures look much nicer, but also take up a lot more space.Cheers,Gosta.

As Gosta said, some of us save as 32bit, some as DXT3. Depending on format and if anyone has included screenshots sizes may vary.

Well at least it's not mostly more than 4 MB of the last version any more, which is good for modem users like me :-)Kitty MercuryCathay Pacific Virtual Pilot (CX252)
