Stephen Posted July 7, 2022 Report Share Posted July 7, 2022 NEWS! - Enhancement Package AEP v1.1 update by X-Codr "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. Changelog v1.1 Version 1.1 (July 6th 2020) New higher quality taxi lines New much higher quality ramp parking lines Replaced traffic cones with much higher quality models and replaces more traffic cone variants Retextured most ground equipment at double the resolution Improved facade attached objects Improved pavement rain textures Various normal map fixes Airport Enhancement Package has numerous features including: • Almost all airport buildings replaced with new high quality models • Majority of airport facades replaced with new high quality facades • Majority of all ground clutter replaced with new high quality models • All static ground vehicles replaced with new high quality models • All airport objects such as runways lights, beacons, and navaids replaced with new high quality models • All models feature advanced modeling techniques o All models feature UHD textures between 2 and 4 pixels per inch 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 Pavement uses large scale decals to break up repetition giving airports a realistic natural feel 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.
