What HD clouds do you use?

I have this mod for clouds:
Clouds BIG V2.1a

In the load.ini line, for 'HighClouds= xxxx.tga'
I have several clouds texture files. They look like negative images of clouds when view.

Clouds_UUFF256.tga
Clouds256.tga
Clouds259.tga
Clouds267.tga
Clouds267_2.tga
Clouds269.tga
Clouds269_2.tga
Clouds269_3.tga

I picked these up from other maps and made some of my own.

hi guys
if it might help anyone, i've also resized the bumpH files to 1024 and uploaded it to my mediafire account, which so far hasn't seen any restrictions on downloads (let's hope it stays that way!)
here's the link: http://www.mediafire.com/?xddb911kzzb57m0
bear in mind, i haven't renamed them, so they still mostly have the 2048 naming structure, but they are all now 1024 size.
hope it might help someone with the loading times, and so forth.
i am personally unable to fully utilise the 2048 map textures, as i probably need to upgrade some components on my machine first. maybe someone else is in a similar boat, and hopefully for them, this'll also help a bit. :D

thanks, Gerhard - i really have a hard time running my game with high-res map textures - the same scene that runs in regular size at a steady 50+ fps, will run in single digit fps with high-res textures, and the slightly better-looking textures are definitely not worth the drastic drop in performance.
with a new GPU, and possibly upping my RAM from 4GB to 8GB, i'm sure things will go better, but for now, regular size is the only way to go for me, realistically.

WOW man, I still downloading this map after 40 minutes  :P
Must be HUGE.
Although I have a much more modern PC with a good graphics card and 16Mb memory I hope to
run this with not much problem,I hope.
I like a smooth running game with many airplanes flying.

I remember times where I was proud to have a brandnew
state-of-the -art PC with a 20MB Harddisk!  ???

The 2048 textures are large and so are the attending BumpH files for these ... my machine is quite old already, some 4 years at least and so it's certainly not the latest. Yet it runs this map quite well. I can have 20-25 planes in one mission and concentrated in one area so they are all in play, and there is no problem with that.

Yet even so, it may be necessary to hold off on using the BumpH files. they are in a separate directory and will not be loaded unless you move them into the textures folder. Maybe it's best to try without them first ...

AAAAHAHA ROFL  :D I made a silly. What I meant was 16 gigabytes.
Anyway, my download went bad. It stopped all of a sudden.
I will have to download it again. No problem.

agracier, not sure if you spotted my earlier link for 1024 sized BumpH files. you're welcome to add it to your first post, if it'll be of any help. ;)
