Is the SD vs HD textures for aircraft only or also the way the maps look?

This is the way it's designed. 

 

It may be a bit annoying, but it actually makes things a little less confusing. If someone were to have a computer with a 32-bit OS, regardless of the hardware in the system the HD version will not run. It is easy enough to change the HD back to SD via the menu in the launcher.

 

...but...but...the extra 10GB burden does not go when you use SD client after installing HD textures...

 

Might as well run in HD if you already install it and able to run it...

the maps to be sure look better.  i would go further and say the game as a whole looks HD.  planes, maps, explosions, etc...

Pack your own chute.

Yep, I'm putting together a 1.4 preview video for tomorrow. It will show the F2G in the hangar, side-by-side. The HD version has a more natural "matte" finish instead of the usual ultra-shiny polished look.

I read the patch notes again...SD client will be installed for Personal setting.

 

...so, no matter how high you go with personal setting, it will still install SD...I guess.

I see a major difference between the 2.  My monitors are cheep Acers, but my tower is a juggernaut.  The GPU is a GTX780, i have 16 gig o ram.. no special storage as of yet.  My processor i think might be the key, ( i7-4820) i am downloading the HD on my lower set up to see if the diff is much less. (GTX 650ti with a strong i3 pushing it all...   

Your systems similiar to mine and I run the game maxed out and my fan speed stays at about 10% even if overclocked with GPU tweak.

But aren't any settings that are manually changed considered personal?

I think HD will only install on preset high/very high settings, and not manually, individually, cranked up ones.

 

My computer is a bit too ghetto to test it out, though.
