YPPF Parafield Airport and Adelaide City Photoreal
Version 1.1 Update
Mar 09, 2013
The International Scenery Development Group (ISDG)
- Made city replacement terrain files "less green" by tightening the shrub overlay textures.
- Added night _LIT textures to the city; hence nighttime flying now looks like XP9 rather than completely dark.
- Fixed an over-sized DDS Texture - This scenery now loads in XP9 via the Compatibility Library.
XP9 Users, you can download : http://forums.x-pilot.com/index.php/files/file/327-x-plane-10-compatibility-library-for-x-plane-9/
- X-Plane 10.20 or better
- OpensceneryX 2.0 (http://opensceneryx.com/)
- A Modern Video Card with minimum 512 Mb VRAM, 1 Gb is highly recommended
- Ability to run at "Very High" texture resolutions (with compression enabled), else the effect is lost.
- X-Plane 64-bit and a 2 Gb VRAM Video card is recommended for the Highest Texture resolutions.
(No... We're not kidding... we will use every ounce of VRAM you have!)
Unzip and place folder "YPPF Parafield Airport and Adelaide City Photoreal" in your X-Plane/Custom Scenery/ folder.
- If VOZ is installed, then "YPPF Parafield Airport and Adelaide City Photoreal" must come before VOZ in the "scenery_packs.ini" file.
- If you are installing this for the first time, this scenery will automatically be placed first (which is correct, and will work immediately)
Delete the "YPPF Parafield Airport and Adelaide City Photoreal" directory from your X-Plane/Custom Scenery/ folder.
