I love the different look and detailing of these textures, but at least with my current graphics settings some of the colors used seem a bit off. Others may feel differently though, but here's a list of the things i noticed:

 

For summer textures:

- there's too much of a blueish shade in the green color of the grass, fields and trees

- trees are too dark in general

 

For autumn textures:

- trees are too orange/red, contrasting with the grass color

- i really like the fields colors and detailing

 

I attached 2 images to show my issues with tree colors.

 

Anyway, this is great work, thanks a lot Starway !

I agree. Autumn is fantastic in general, but the in other two seasons (winter is all white anyway so it doesn't really matter what mod if any you're using) the colors are not realistic. To the point I went back to using another mod. Also, things like grey grass covering concrete textures are a bit of a let down from ground level.

its really just the greens in the spring and summer seasons... a little bit too neon... and the trees in autumn are a just a bit too brown/red.... other than that,... insanely beautiful detail!!! Thank You Starway!!!:thumbup:

Those complaining about colours : are you using reshade? and first of all , have you set up your monitors colors profiles properly?

 

 

this mod is MANDATORY for DCS now !

no reshade... my monitors are both color corrected via Datacolor Spyder 5 Pro.. for me, the greens are slightly neon... and the trees during fall season look a bit too red.. however, the greens in the fall season look more accurate.. Spring and Summer greens seem to be the main complaint.. and i do concur.. either way the detail does look incredible!!!..

My monitor has been calibrates by my eyes :lol: And no reshade.

 

The ground in spring and summer looks almost like in old photo scenery products for FSX.

 

But don't get me wrong. I appreciate Starway's work and as I said, what he's done to the terrain is incredible. I just wish those damn greens were a bit more realistic cause that's not how that (any?) part of the world looks and you can verify that with Google Earth / images. The autumn though...

 

edit: Just gave it another go and a lot depends on the time of the day. Autumn looks fabulous any time but for summer and spring I find early morning and possibly late evening hours to look best, but not ideal. At any other time the ground looks too "cold" and bright for me. Autumn has those lovely warm colors and that's why it looks so much better IMO. I might just limit my flying to autumn and early summer/spring mornings though cause it looks so interesting to fly over :D

Starway mate are you planning to updated this mod on a "regular" bais maybe by implementig the aiports infrastructure textures, runnways, to get a more modern "caucasusa era" ?

 

 

Your previous work for 1.5 was a complete game changer for all of us, now that you're back we have new hope for the Caucasus map to survive the years and get the proper attention it deserves!!

 

 

New and more modern airports, runnways , towers, would be awesome!! and I woul be personaly proud to donate as well.

yes I tend to agree the trees colours should be adjusted, anyway overall speaking this mod needs some attention imho from the whole DCS community as it is simply superb.

Thanks Starway, I'm currently trying to decide between your textures and Mustang's and it's very difficult because they're both magnificent and I assume you both went through a lot of work to produce them.

 

So, again, thank you for your dedication, along with Mustang.

I know its impossible to satisfy everybodys taste but I really liked the subtile blueish style of the previous version 2.5.4. It looked more hazy and misty. Like thicker and moister air absorbs more light. Kinda atmospheric.

Still an awesome mod.

Hey Starway! Thanks a lot for textures! I like them a lot, though I think trees in Summer/Spring are just a tad too dark. City base textures are a little wierd in some cases... Otherwise, I'm loving the change! :joystick:

Thank you!!

 

Amazing work! Thank you for creating this terrain mod. I felt that the current terrain felt bland and mundane. So much that I went as far as dare to say that the 1.5.x terrain looked better! Now you've given my eyes such a relief. :)

This mod brings new life to DCS, but it doesnt get the proper attention it deserves.
