This little project is unique in my art history, and will seem dumb to real computer game artists! I made some free cliff textures based on rock photos for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002/2004, taking far too long to do so! The results have been downloaded a few thousand times from a number of sites (including Avsim, Aussim, FSField, FSPlanet, FSDome, Simviation and others. These links are slowly disappearing, it seems). I’m a star!
My textures (with some colour tweaks) even ended up in a project called “Vista Australis” (“VOZ”), and I became the smallest contributor to a major freeware success as a result. They claim an ‘installed base’ of over 350, 000 users! They’ve since left my textures behind in order to develop a new, much-improved payware version of their product called “Full Terrain Experience” (which I hope to enjoy one day) but my experience still gives me a buzz, as silly as that may be!
