Very Happy Can anyone suggest me a decent grass improving add-on for the airports? Confused This green think around runways is far from reality...

Thanks in advance. Wink

This is a grass texture that I found on avsim.
I used it as you see below, it's much more realistic than the default.
Easy to install (even though the directions are in French) and please back up your World Texture folder.

The VOZ airport grass is the best IMO.

It blends in perfectly with the landclass depending what region you are using (dry/wet/farms etc) so that big urgly textues blocks surrounding airports dont stick out like sore thumbs Wink

Well i try a second view and finally i choose Wing-Man's suggestion...It seems a little better than the rest according to my taste... Wink




Although if you view from some distance the textures are separated to squares.The closer to craft are high detailed and the further ones no...This is the only problem.Im referring only to grass textures..The rest are fine.

It is not a standalone grass download, you will need to get the whole 109mb package from here.
