Thanks to @Barf for providing the data to rebuild these tiles. The UHD versions of selected areas are now available to torrent.
Source data provided by LINZ.
These packs are simple drag and drop replacements for the standard tiles.

You will notice that loading time is longer, and if you accelerate time there is a bit of ‘chug’ when it starts loading in the hefty tiles. Overall though, the experience flying over the Coromandel, or other ranges is much better.
You may want to keep a back up of the previous tiles in case you wish to revert for some reason. No imagery has been updated, however there are some masks differences between these sets. If you simply drop the UHD data in without copying in the texture folder, the sim will crash and say that some texture dds files are missing. So best not to mix and match the files between the versions.
Let me know how you get on!
