New scenery

HD Environment 2010 extensively enhances the visual appearance of Microsoft® Flight Simulator® 2004. It replaces the default environmental, autogen, airport and runway textures in FS2004 with ultra-sharp, ultra-realistic HD quality textures. This in turn account for a significant improvement in visual realism with no undesirable frame-rate effects.
