Please make an option to exclude the Asobo detail texture.

Please make an option to exclude the Asobo detail texture.

I am referring to an previous post here: Link

I want to create my local area i Norway for VFR flights, but there is no high resolution Bing Maps in that area. But that is not a problem at all since I have access to higher resolution images and are able to create the maps needed.

So I am not complaining about Bing Maps. Not the resolution, not the color and not the building, cars or trees.

The problem is that Asobo puts some kind of marble texture on top of the aerials, that makes it look like garbage. Below is two images. One is taken from the simulator and one from Bing Maps. The Bing Map is ok. But it doesn't look good in the simulator. It looks dirty and messed up.

Below is another example from the same area.

Again the aerial looks terrible in the sim, but ok in the Bing Maps app. I find this very strange since the Bing Map i supposed to be the source for the simulator. Below is a closeup image of the detailed marble junk texture Asobo is putting on top of the aerial. On the right you can se how it looks like without the added texture.

Maybe there is a way to remove it now.

But if not, Can you please give us an option to exclude it? Since you added it, you can find a way to remove it.


Best regard

Ragnar
