Change airport grass color?

Recommended Posts

I have searched this topic, but did not find a conclusive answer...

 

Does anyone know which texture(s) controls the airport grass color?  In my setup, the airport grass is usually much lighter and yellower than the surrounding vegetation.  (Not realistic.)  But to make matters worse, the runway color gets lost until you are very close to the airport.  (Frustrating.)

I'd like to alter the color if I could figure out which texture to play with.

Thanks!

Hi Ron,

 

I don't remember the exact texture because I'm not at my sim computer.  But, if you are not already aware, I believe Global ORBX fixes this and you get very nice replacement texture for all other land classes.

Thanks, Ken.  I'd appreciate any info you could find later.

I am using another texture package, which I am generally very happy with.  It's just the darn grass.

If you're on the lazy side, just download the Drzewiecki Design freeware Grass X:

 

http://www.drzewiecki-design.net/prodDD_GrassX.htm

 

It works with any airport and includes 4096 textures for both grass and snow for the airport mask map. The installer can also reverse the process back to the default textures. It is compatible with all flavors of FSX and P3d, but then again these days, what isn't?

Thanks, Jay.

I think this replaces the grass texture / roughness - which is what most of the Google searches refer to also.

Still looks like an interesting package.

In order to make it  look like real world grass, one has to do what ORBX does with their airports. They superimpose grass-like simobjects on top of the main grass texture.

I fully agree, the default grass is WAY too light in color and needs to be changed. Hopefully LM will address this in the next point release.

Just wondering if you know of the textures that you referenced in your earlier post. Thanks.

Ah - good ol' Luis.  I think this thread may help if LM hasn't rearranged things too much.

Thank you, Ken!
