Some of the paints I've seen are more weathered. There's a ton of liveries with it, and the bump maps are quite good when the light is right.

I have to say the autogen in your last series of images looks awesome. GenX with full autogen would be better than FTX I would have to think. Swiss Pro is about the closest thing to photo scenery with full autogen, but its only 2m. Hopefully that will be out in a few weeks.

How big do your autogen files total? I can probably make available 50MB of FTP space, so I could give you the password and you could upload the agn files, that way everybody here can grab them without the need to send out CD's.
