These are higher resolution images for the default moon textures. The default moons are 64X64 BMPs. I've replaced them with 512X512 BMPs, and replaced the Alpha channel with higher resolution images. By Roy Altholz.

  • Create a backup folder for the original moonX.bmp's found in the FSX "Texture" folder,, cut or copy the original moon bmps into the backup folder, then keep the folder in a safe place,
  • Copy the contents of the downloaded "Textures" folder into the FSX "Texture" folder. If you "copied" the original moon textures to the backup folder, you will be asked if you want to overwrite, say "yes".

That's all there is to it.
