Tired of the same old moon? This replaces some, or all, default moon textures with various other things, like space stations, planets, or other things, using 512X512 BMPs for higher resolution when zoomed in.

There are several options to installing. You can install them all and replace all the 15 moon texture with the content of the "moon_strange" folder, or you can replace only a few select moons.

  • Back up your FSX moon files in a back-up folder. These are found in the FSX "Texture" folder.
  • copy and paste the contents of the "moon_strange" into the FSX Texture folder, OR, whichever specific moon you would like. If you want the Death Star, copy-n-paste "moon12.bmp" into the FSX texture folder. All the other moons will remain default.

That's all there is to it. To view the various "moons", grab a copy of a almanac or a good calendar and set the "Time and Season" to the appropriate time and date given by the almanac or calendar.

The archive has 21 files and directories contained within it.
