Cool as a cucumber

I got my machine back a couple of days ago, now when stressed the max core temp is 52C.  That’s better.  Forty degrees better.  Also now running at 3.0 GHz instead of 2.4 GHz.  That’s better too.  What wasn’t better is that I idly checked the DX10 preview box without thinking and that screwed up textures vastly.  David Roch at AVSIM gently led me back to the light.

So back to photoscenery.  I realized that the night textures for FTX are vastly different than those in Van+ … so two different sets of night textures are needed downtown.  As you can see, FTX night textures are much darker.

Vancouver+ V3 - night - Standalone textures

Vancouver+ V3 - downtown - night - FTX versions
