Default GROUND TEXTURES MOD by Barthek

G R O U N D T E X T U R E S M O D 6.0









Hello everyone,

I am extremely happy to be able to share with you something I have been working on over last few months. The development of this mod included learning the graphic editing software from scratch, deciphering how the DCS graphic engine works, replacing my beloved computer mouse wich died in the process with a new one and a countless amount of DCS restarts in order to see the new changes applied. After all, I think I have become an addict because I still firmly believe that one can do something better and better with each subsequent attempt. Alright. Less talking, more walking. Here are the instructions. Please read them carefully to avoid any mistakes.


INSTALLATION GUIDE


1. If you're using any terrain mods, please deactivate them to avoid potential complications.
2. Download and install the great Forests without shadows mod by Mustang. This step is not obligatory but highly recommended!
3. Download the MOD in JSGME-ready package from here
4. Unzip the content to your JSGME mods folder within your DCS main folder.
5. Activate the mod in JSGME. You can find a great tutorial on how to do that here - thanks Ebs!
6. Download these four missions to test the textures. I have prepared them for you so that you can test all 4 seasons in the blink of an eye. There are a couple of aircrafts flying in different parts of the map - you can toggle them by pressing the F2 key. If the mod looks exactly as on these screenshots, than congratulations - you have installed GTM successfully!


SOME FINAL THOUGHTS

1. When creating a mission, MAKE SURE the season is adequate with the month. You don't want to fly in WINTER and set JUNE as the month - the colours of the textures will look very unnatural.
2. For WINTER you should use mostly December and January. February might have too bright textures in some scenarios.
3. This is not the end. I'll have a short break now and then I'll start working on buildings and airports.
4. Last but not least - NRG-Vampire, as promised - your autumn trees. Sorry, I couldn't find the spring ones.





Happy flying,
Bartek
