About This File
This is a simple 512X512 tile resize of Rends /Stary's 1024X1024 Germany tile set.
All artistic credit goes to Rends and Stary for creating these beautiful tiles,I simply resized them.
These are tiles only... you will need rends full terrain to make this conversion work correctly.

Purpose of this mod?
My SF2 settings are set to maximize Eye candy, and immersion at the expense of frames per second. I run detail mesh settings at 16 to 24 and in some patch levels I run increased horizon draw distances of up to 200000.0----- I have struck a careful balance that keeps my frame rates just in the playable range. Rends awesome, highly detailed Germany pushed the frame rates into the unplayable range with these settings, so I undertook some experimentation to increase fps.
Thru tightening my RAM speed settings and using these resized tiles I have seen a small improvement that puts the FPS back into the playable range. However takeoffs at certain airbases can still be a bit choppy.
I believe that RAM speed is very important with this terrain and its high object density.
These resized tiles may be of benefit to those who have older computers, or those who run high detail mesh sizes.
