In order to run texture sizes of 1024 or higher, you will need to download and install the High-Resolution Texture package from our download page. The 2048 option effects the cockpit only. All exterior textures are a maximum size of 1024.

NOTE: You need a video card with, at least. 512MB of dedicated video RAM on it (shared memory does not count), in order to make full use of the 1024 or 2048 size textures.
