For FS9. Just got the program.1. If I take snapshots that include ground textures with different shades of GEPRO, will the program use those or will it be necessary to also press the GEPRO button?2. Does the program use water textures in the snapshot? REX allows for darker thru lighter shades of water. Can those be used as well for different weather patterns?3. How long does it take for a snapshot to load?4. Can a snapshot be loaded after FS9 is running?Thank you.

Hi,1. No, snapshots include environment textures only, not ground textures.2. Yes, water is included in snapshots.3. About 1 minute.4. No, FS needs to be closed to install textures including snapshots.

Hi Damian,Just a quick query about what the snapshots include. With regard to REX within the 'theme creation' page, you can change:
  • the sky theme
  • water/tropical water
  • wave animation
  • runways / taxiways
  • airport environment
  • the sun / lighting (lens flare, lightning, landing lights, aircraft strobe and runway lights)

If possible could you please specify specifically which of the above variables are saved in an ASE Snapshot, as "environment textures only" could be interpreted in different ways.Thanks,Jack

Hi Jack,Those are all included in snapshots. We'll make it a point moving forward to more clearly indicate what is being saved.... But yes, any sky/clouds/water/airport runway/taxiway/parking spot/sun/moon/etc as typical of any environment graphics add-on including ASG, XG, FEX, REX, FE, etc...
