Ground textures USA (and Europe)

Recommended Posts

Hi,I think I probably owe people an apology for making available these modified textures while failing to accompany them with any pictures. Part of my reason for not doing so was that I am not very good at taking flattering screenshots and also I suppose I had hoped that the textures would speak for themselves (a rather silly thought I realise now in retrospect). Anyway to remedy the situation for the US textures at least I have attached to this note five sceenshots. They were all taken at midday with visibility set to 50 miles. With the exception of the shot of the mountains east of Seattle all the others were taken from an altitude of 5000 ft. These are the modified default textures without my using any landclass products or any re-naming of files.Adam Mills.

>I think I probably owe people an apology for making available>these modified textures while failing to accompany them with>any pictures. No need to apologize in my opinion. I downloaded the textures backed up my old textures and installed your textures so I could view them. BTW I am impressed with your textures and love them. Keep uo the great work!

no worries, mate. be warned though, it seems that SP1 will update textures ... and might overwrite yours. maybe you can check SP1 when it comes out and advise your users as to the proper course of action

Hello Adam,at first, thank you very much for your textures and all the work you invested in it!I certainly do not think that you owe anybody an apology. To do so anyway, seems very remarkable to me, especially as your work is freeware. I have been one of the persons looking for screenshots (and hopefully I did this kindly enough) and I am happy that you provide some in retrospect. I did not expect you to do so, for me this is just great service, so let me thank you again, for your remarkable work and the follow-up service :)Happy flyingAlex

Adam,Thank you so much for the textures, they work quite well for me. I have installed them along with XClass from Cloud 9 in Europe and US and they make a fine combination. Ignore those who putdown your efforts. All many ever create is negative posts.Your contributions are always welcome here.

If someone should apologize it's IMO those who downloaded them, said "waow!" like many of us and didn't take the time to thank you for your fantastic work and the great improvement you just offered to the FSX community :-)again, thanks a lot Adamwith gratitude,David Roch

FSX, Service Pack 1. It's been announced by the Aces team as the next release we should expect from them. They seem to be targeting improving overall FSX performance, along with fixing some of the bugs that slipped through the cracks in the initial release.

I would express my thanks but the library seems quite slow at the moment so I'm going to wait to download them.

Ditto,Thanks for your efforts Adam, I'm itching to try them as well. No doubt that took some work.The great thing about FSX is having hi-res texture sets. The bad thing about FSX is trying to download new hi-res texture sets !!Garett

Thank you again. I posted on another post, but it got buried. I installed the textures and am very happy with them. When you backup your files, it is easy to go back if you want to. Try them out. I do not think you will be disappointed.

Still quite keen to check these out, but please can the entire USA log off so I can get a decent speed :) Great work though Adam.

John,Are you saying that XClass and Adam's textures work well together?I wasn't sure if one would override the other or cause a conflict. I have Cloud 9 XClass textures and I would like to use Adam's, but I'm concerned about conflicts and files being overwritten.

A very good work, but I see some desert near the italian runaway, I think that perhaps we need a SP1 of your incredible textures

Cloud9 XClass packages are landclass updates and don't modify any of the actual texture files. Adam's packages are texture updates and don't modify any of the underlying landclass files. So, there are no conflicts and the two can be used together quite happily.

Adam,Thanks for the improved textures.... great work.Stan, These textures ( as any textures ) will work with landclass as all landclass does is tell the sim exactly which texture file to use at each location. This texture file is then placed on top of the mesh.Martin,I am sure i read somewhere that this is a landclass problem.. when no LC data is available for a particular area ( in the LC file ) it draws these textures.Cheers,Paul

Interesting observation on this...Having recently purchased a new computer, I reinstalled FS2004 as well as FSX. Unfortunately (as it turns out) I sold off my FS Global and FScene enhancement packs thinking they wouldn't be needed as I wouldn't be using FS2004 or so I thought...('nuff said). So flying in FS2004 is over the default terrain textures and landscape.Thus on creating and loading a flight from Inverness to Birmingham (UK) I was quite startled to see that the default textures for the UK in winter exhibit the same brown/yellow desert like appearance that people (including myself) are moaning about in FSX.The moral being that while FSX certainly has issues and, in the overall view of things this is a relatively minor one, FS2004 out the box ain't exactly perfect either...

FS9 out of the box was dreadful. It's by comparing it to FS9+addons that FSX looks like such a small step forward. People have short memories :)

I've just got round to downloading the textures and I see that, for Europe, some of the files are duplicated. Is that correct? Do I just overwrite with the newer files?
