3D Grass?

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,This seems about the most appropriate forum for this inquiry. I am hoping to find information about how I can change the default grass textures for airports in FSX. Specifically, 3D grass like that in the FS2004 FlightScenery Portland release is preferred. Is this a particular texture file or a group of texture files? I have downloaded a "detail1.bmp" upgrade here at Avsim, but this just doesn't have the appearance I was hoping for. Whatever the third party developers are doing with scenery these days is quite amazing, and I would like to think that this can be incorporated into default FSX airports. (I hope!) If there is a payware product out there that accomplishes this, I am willing to shell out money for it. Thanks for any info.Scott______________________________________________________________System Specs:Gigabyte 965P-DS3 MotherboardIntel Core 2 Duo E6420 2.13ghz OC'd @ 3.04ghzZalman 7700 CPU CoolingEVGA e-GeForce 320mb 8800GTS2 X 1gb G.Skill Memory, Dual ChannelSeagate Barracuda 320gb Hard Drive, Perpendicular RecordingCorsair HX520W Modular Power SupplyWindows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit

IIUC in FS9 detail1 did a pseudo-random dithering of the terrain texture in the near-field. Don't know if that changed in FSX. I think the approach of FS portland is to layer ground-level objects on the terrain. Doing that in FSX seems to be a bit of a chore.scott s..

It is definitely strange, Scott. That file must have a composition of something important, because as a test I found a grass texture on the net, resized it, and named it "detail1.bmp." The effect worked, but it basically overtook the sim world by making everything that color and effect. Weird. I hope someone, somehow, figures out how to release something that will enhance grass textures at airports.______________________________________________________________System Specs:Gigabyte 965P-DS3 MotherboardIntel Core 2 Duo E6420 2.13ghz OC'd @ 3.04ghzZalman 7700 CPU CoolingEVGA e-GeForce 320mb 8800GTS2 X 1gb G.Skill Memory, Dual ChannelSeagate Barracuda 320gb Hard Drive, Perpendicular RecordingCorsair HX520W Modular Power SupplyWindows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit
