Freeware – Enhanced Airport Ground Texture

Do you want your airport in your sim as real as above?  Today, we will introduce you a FREEWARE to enhance your airport textures of your flight simulator

***********

Developed by Gamalier Padilla, these new textures for FSX enhance your default ground airport textures. This package contains all new high detailed taxiway textures, ground textures, and all new taxiway line textures. The new ground textures give a more realistic illusion of rocks, grass, etc. Autogen as well as taxiways, will now look more realistic and “in place”since they are no longer over a low resolution detail 1.bmp file. The new taxiway line textures ( or taxilines as I call them) make your default taxilines look even more realistic. Now you will see environmental weathering effects such as cracks and holes on the taxiline paint. And finally, the new taxiway textures upgrade the default FSX ones. Every detail, crack, and pebble was carefully analyzed and created with the aid of hi-res sources.
