Hi-Res Grass Next to Runway: How?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I am unable to make the grass adjacent to runways hi-res.

 

I find that my payware airports provide excellent textures for ramps and tarmacs, and that Rex Essential does a great job with runway surfaces. But on either side of runways the turf consists of nothing more than blurry streaks. How do I make those areas look realistic?

 

Thank you so much for helping me out!

 

Best,

 

Lucky

Have you tried an Orbx regional scenery or airport?

 

Download the free Orbx PNW scenery and taxi at Bowerman airport as a test

Yes, Bert, I have ORBX Australia SP4 and EU England regions, as well as ORBX Southampton and Brisbane airports...

 

Will follow your instructions about PNW and Bowerman and post results.

 

Thanks for your advice ---

 

Best,

In the meantime I seem to have hit upon a solution of sorts... I increased the scenery texture autogen setting in FSX to "Extremely High" and am now seeing some tall grass...

 

Best,

I installed that grass file from Rex  but dont seem to notice any difference?  Is it because I have Orbx Global?  Does that overwrite it?

 

Cheers

? What did you think I was 'trying'..

 

You are correct, now that I remember, Bowerman is part of that, the 'demo' that is..

 

Later when I paid for the product, I had to download Bowerman seperately after, and it did say required PNW..

 

I wasn't 'trying' anything.. was just letting him know that PNW wasn't 'free'.. but Bowerman is...

 

and Bowerman is one of my Fav's in the NW along with 1s2 and KORS..
