X-Plane Polar Orbital Textures

Featured by Hsimulators, February, 15/2017

In the future, the X-Plane default can decide to bring the polar textures, but in the meantime we will have these textures available for free, however, it is necessary to advise that the user must copy the X-Plane originals before Install these options.

By default, X-Plane manages the textures at 3 major levels. Low flying textures, textures on high altitude flights (medium orbital textures) and high orbital textures seen from the stratosphere. You may have realized that as you enter the planet's map mode on the X-Plane, the land poles will not be seen, so X-Plane built the default scenario just above 72 degrees north. In all packages published at Hsimulators store, these texture will be installed in X-Plane default.
