The amazing bit is that this is FS2004! While pottering around with some repaints I found that I can get FS2004 to display HD 2048 x 2048 pixel and UHD 4096 x 4096 pixel resolution textures, which was definitely a surprise to me since it is widely assumed that there is a hard barrier in FS9 at 1024 x 1024 resolution. In fact, I also managed to insert HD 2048 runway and taxiway textures to my sim.

For close-ups, comparisons between resolutions and more examples please go to - sorry, there are too many images for a post here.

Repainters wanting to learn more about this and help me test this further, please just send me a PM! I would really like to see if this is reproducable before I start gushing about the potential this adds to the sim.

Well Sascha, have you not maybe invented FS9.6? 🙂

If the texture barrier can be broken, I for one would go back and have a serious look at the sim...

HD 2048 works for some ground textures too. A quick and dirty taxi- and runway textures conversion to HD 2048, using some of my EVO textures.kxP0PEI.jpg
