PPP Team proudly announces the conclusion of the PPP scenery. Version 2.2 closes the imediate cycle that the team intended to do. It's the effort of more than 2 year's work although in a non-continuous manner. It's the first global Continental Portugal freeware scenery since 1998. Euro 2004 is starting and Portugal is now a realistic, thrilling and challenging destination. But, most of all is FREEWARE.
One of the biggest frustrations for those that are flight simulation software enthusiasts is the fact that many times the planes look great, but the ground textures look absolutely terrible. This can really break the sense of immersion that you have when using a flight simulator.
The juxtaposition between the high quality model of the plane and the muddy and blurry textures applied to the ground just looks bad. However, thanks to the PPP team and their Perfect Portugal Project Scenery pack for Flight Simulator 2004. Essentially, this pack recreates the entirety of continental Portugal in glorious high resolution textures. Unlike many packs, this add-on also contains 3D models of several iconic Portugese locations, such as Vasco da Gama tower. Along with 3d models, the pack also contains accurate roads and even fully accurate rivers and other bodies of water that flow in from the ocean.
This pack also contains textures for the ground that are fully accurate for the particular time of year in the country of Portugal that the simulator is rendering, meaning that there will not be snow covered mountains in the middle of the summer heat and vice versa. This pack even displays the beautiful green water that the Algarve region is known for.
The pack also corrects the incorrect placement of airfields in the stock Flight Simulator 2004 package. It makes for a more accurate and realistic flying experience. Along with the correction of airfield placements, the package is also compatible with a number of other add ons for the Flight Simulator 2004 software. Also, another great aspect of this pack is the ease of installation.
The download comes packaged with a setup.exe file that makes installing the entire package to Flight Simulator 2004 a real breeze. Uninstalling the packages is made just as easy by the setup utility. So, all in all, this texture package is a really great addition to the great Flight Simulator 2004 package.
