Default Asphalt Runway Foil?

I've recently been planning out a GA airport I would make, and it has a black asphalt runway - was wondering if there were any asphalt foils, without markings...

This is the airport and the asphalt I'm trying to find:

I've kinda realized that this post might be useless - could I just use a plain black background instead?

I was trying to find something with cracks in the asphalt for more realism...

Not sure how to delete a thread, but this was quite useless (sorry!) and I resolved my problem really quickly.

I'm not sure if this answers your question, but from my understanding you are looking at how to make a plain asphalt foil look realistic, right?

Digitally, you can simply make a dark grey layer and add a noise layer to it. It looks good enough that way imo, you can adjust the opacity to your liking.

With a real one, I tried spray painting a foil with clear spray and it has some decent rough textures as a result. Maybe you can use a cutter to cut some grids to make the ramp/runway look 'paneled'. Using a matte spray may give better results.

Hope this helps!
