Hi everybody. Silly question probably but does anbody know of any DXT3 textures for Milton's Spartan? They all seem to be 32bit. I'm flying with lousy hardware and I can't see my scenery textures. Any paintscheme will do. Any info much appreciated. Smile Cheers, Aad.

You know what? I'd really encourage you to try converting a set with Martin Wright's DXTBMP tool to see if this will help. Do a google search and download it from his site. I say this because I don't know of any, and usually, repainters tend to follow whatever trend is set by the original textures anyway.

A thought!

Hi guys. Thanks a lot for your answers. Found the pidgeon on my doorstep this morning. Poor thing was exhausted. So I released it from it's duties. Twisted Evil Tasted quite nice actually with that bottle of Rioja I had left. Cheers Aad.

Hi guys. Don't really like squirrels mate. The local ones taste like s***. Not a lot of meat on them either. Would have to empty the whole bloody tree just to get lunch. Never tried a red one though. Laughing By the way, downloaded DXTBMP just now. Gonna go and experiment some. See ya, Aad.

The Spartan package was released with DXT3 textures available as a download. You can get them at my Spartan website here:
www.flightsimonline.co...nloads.htm

Sorry that I was late picking up on this thread as I have been immersed in a Sim-Outhouse team project helping to build an A-26B Invader. Should be done soon.

Post subject: Re: Spartan DXT3 textures

I use a program and go through all the aircraft in my sim and convert all textures to DXT3. Fled has it too. Its kind of nice as I can also convert them to BMPs for repainting too if needed. I don't do much of that, so I haven't really used that part yet, but having that ability is handy for those folks that do their own repaints.
