Jeff Smith reports that Flight One Software “….. is proud to present the latest Ground Environment X version: Ground Environment X Europe for Microsoft Flight Simulator X.
Ground Environment X brings all-new ground textures to FSX, and it boasts an incredible 1 m/pixel texture resolution, using native 1024×1024 pixel images, and includes all seasons, meticulously designed night textures, and the latest techniques in autogen placement and alignment. All this while keeping maximum Flight Simulator performance in mind during development…..”.
“…. This product represents our new approach in texture design. The 1-meter texture resolution format delivers a hi-fidelity image without using excessive disk space or processor power. Our design allows a simulation pilot to enjoy clearly defined visuals from nearly the ground level up to higher altitudes.
The easy-to-use interface will provide for easy installing the new textures, and is designed with Flight1’s “keep-it-simple yet powerful” philosophy.
