Jeff Smith of Flight1 reports that “….. McPhat Studios and Flight One Software have released a second set of Ultra High Definition textures. This time for our steam gauged and cone tail equipped Super 80 fans. This release is for the Flight1/Coolsky Super 80 Classic Edition.Â With a pixel per meter ratio of 253, these are possibly the most detailed aircraft textures in history of Flight Simulator. They are four times as detailed as the stock Super 80 Classic textures….”.
“….. Making HD textures is not about blowing up the existing ones, times four. They are build from the ground up, not only for the diffuse map, but also for the specular and bump maps. This allows a rivet looks like a rivet, scratches look like scratches, soot that looks like soot, and decals are fully readable. The textures have to be meticulously designed with the tiniest details in mind.
We believe you will be amazed by these new textures. The product is available now for download purchase for $19.90, and includes and automatic installer for the 10 new liveries.
