Interesting enhancements for Microsoft Flight Simulator X:
- FSX European Ground Textures Package by Adam Mills
Intended to solve three common complaints with European textures: the "desert" problem, winter textures and autumn textures. These modified textures reduce or eliminate the barren brown color of the default textures and improved the drab washed out fall and winter colors too.
