We’re all enjoying 3D buildings and GSE at airports around the world, and I think we can all agree the developers have done a great job implementing this great feature! However, I wanted to point out two instances where I’d like to see a small fix to GSE present in-sim.
The change itself concerns the airport pallet loader and the small fuel truck, as these two pieces of equipment have much lower-quality textures than the other GSE. All vehicles have a slight grainy texture when you zoom up close, which I would assume is due to rendering efficiency. However, the pallet loader and fuel truck are much more noticeable in this regard, and from further away. Therefore, this feature request is to have the textures of these two GSE updated to better match the other GSE.
What would be the benefits, you might ask?
- General aesthetics as you admire your plane sitting in the gate.
- Later, as you walk around the ramp and explore the airport, it feels much more realistic, as opposed to getting reminded this is just a computer program.
- After you explore, when taking screenshots from the ramp, textures are much clearer and better suited for those 4K screenshot captures!
I’m not asking for perfect crystal clear 4K textures (although I really hope we can see those one day!) This is just for the two pieces of GSE that look much lower quality than the rest of the airport.
Having been here for 6 years, I know that a feature category post can really only have one photo. Because of the specific nature of the request, and to better illustrate my point, I’ve included three photos below. If the moderators insist on just one, I will make the necessary adjustments, but hopefully it’s understood this is to illustrate my point.
