Modified Ground Textures for Europe - Part 1 to 8.
This is all of the parts combined in one easy to download file.
With these textures I have tried to solve three problems, in the first place, to deal with the 'desert' problem that so many people have complained of, secondly, to deal with the winter textures and thirdly and finally to deal with the autumn textures. With regard to the 'desert' problem, I have modified the default textures in tone and colour to try, so far as is possible, to reduce or eliminate the barren brown color of the default textures. The result is that mountainous areas now no longer look as if they are covered with sand! In addition, since I found the drab washed-out fawn color of the winter textures utterly unrealistic I modified those in an attempt to make winter look more like winter! Finally, I thought that many of the autumn textures were too orange as well as suggesting that the entire European countryside was given over to wheat fields, again I have tried to correct this.
I have endeavored to modify the textures in such a way as to increase the verisimilitude of the simulated world. As I have already said, for the most part I have modified only the autumn and winter textures but in some cases I have been obliged to modify whole seasonal sets. It is for this reason that I have not divided the texture sets by seasons.
The texture set comes in 8 parts (respecting the file size limitation that AVSIM have imposed on uploads to their library). Because all the textures blend with one another I think it probably best to install them all rather than do it piecemeal one part at a time.
Parts 1 to 3 comprise the field textures
Parts 4 to 6 comprise the non-field textures
Parts 7 and 8 comprise the town textures.
Before installing these textures please backup your original textures should you wish to restore them.
Simply unpack the files into a folder of your choice and then move them into the FsX (or whatever you have called the root simulator folder)SceneryWorldTexture folder - that's it.
I have also modified the textures covering the USA which, if the European textures prove satisfactory, I will upload at a later time.
