NEWS! - Enhancement Package AEP v1.1 update by X-Codr

 

Enhancement Package AEP v1.1 update.jpg

 

"Airport Enhancement Package" replaces the vast majority of all default airport assets in order to provide more detailed models, higher resolution textures, new technology such as PBR normal maps, and new features such as weather effects, seasonal effects, and regionalization to give different areas of the world a unique feel. From ground textures to buildings to trees, Airport Enhancement Package dramatically improves it all to bring every default airport to a new level of realism. And here is a major update to the AEP package.

    o    All models feature advanced PBR normal maps for small details and realistic reflections
    o    All models feature advanced LODs to maximize detail while maintaining great performance
    o    Most models feature lite interiors to provide an added sense of depth and realism without the performance cost
• All airport vegetation replaced with new high performance 3d vegetation
    o    Advanced LOD techniques used to create detailed 3d trees with minimal performance impact
    o    Vegetation automatically switches based on region, for example, tropical areas may have palm trees while mountains may have pine trees.
• All pavement textures replaced with new high-quality textures
    o    All pavement textures feature ultra high resolution for great detail
    o    All polygon pavement textures feature PBR normal maps for maximum realism and detail

    o    All airport terrain textures feature normal maps and decals for maximum detail and realism with minimal repetition
    o    All markings replaced with new high quality markings
• Limited Regionalization gives airports a unique feel
    o    In rural areas more damaged pavement is randomly mixed in with normal pavement
    o    In more rural and tropical areas more worn hangars are mixed in with the newer hangars found elsewhere
    o    Vegetation dynamically changes based on the location.
• Dynamic weather and seasons
    o    Polygon pavement features rain effects
    o    All pavement features snow effects
    o    Vegetation dynamically changes with the season. See brown and gold trees in the fall, and trees with no leaves in the winter
• All models match the default style as closely as possible, ensuring you see exactly what the author intended except in a much higher quality.

Interesting timing in releasing this now ahead of 12 but if you read the developers thread in the forums payware section he does explain how that is covered. My biggest issue is that the package does change some of the native Xplane files which I am generally cautious about, although again the developer makes it clear that changing them back is no big deal.
