As mentioned in `bad frame rate' thread.. have some Screen Caps
(cap'ers) of a beautiful Piedmont repaint by Kerry G. (Not the sax-
ophone player). Imagine what state-of -the-art hardware and
the latest version of MSFS can do!!

There are many tricks that the Sim enthusiast can play to enhance
performance. Example below has ALL the day-textures converted to
DXT1 (all-white alpha channel) and reduced to 512x512. The result..
each BMP is only 129k in size. :)

Here's another close-up view of the Piedmont.
