Thanks. No problem in shrinking them down, I'm not a fan of screenshots over 1024 anyway.

Here's what the default island looks like. It pretty much has an autogen object for every object on the texture, which is the way to do it. It beleive the default is at 1m but it might be higher. Certainly the airports have more detail in the add on but the default island is hard to beat.
