ULTRA hi-res maps avaliable!
One of the bonuses of owning the FS1 DVD is that it came with ultra hi-res textures. Being the wonderful person that I am, I decided to pack them all up and let you have them. Just make sure you have the registry fix here.

It makes me wonder why we settled for the old ones to begin with!

Beautiful stuff, this will make renderings much nicer - no more oversize pixels staring back at me....

Wait, are these the same hi-res maps that come with the original edition of FS1? Or are they something different?

The fs1 maps have always been a higher res than FS2, look at the vp files. In fs1 the ursa looks much better than is fs2 (in modview, anyway) because of the higher res maps. Compare the Medusa pofs from fs1 and 2.

Yeah, I noticed that too; I decided to use those in my FS2 campaign. But what exactly is being offered here?

I got the DVD. I think the music is much better, and the graphics, but other than that, I can't think of anything else.

EDIT: Oh yeah, the afterburner trails.
