Cheers omzig - The water is a new theme I uploaded today [The British Sea Greens2], it shows more greens, and is perhaps even better for British waters...give it a try and let me know what you think. I find making the water quite hard, as it's difficult to get the different elements to balance.

If I were in your position I would wait for the 1gb card I think - when beta testing the FEX SHD clouds I monitored VRAM use, and there are times with I've exceed my cards 512mb, which causes nasty anomalies - the reason for this was because I was using a couple of other high res products [TreeX & Picnic grass] and very dense Autogen. Without them I max-out at about 400mb, which is well within the limit...but if you have any thoughts of adding some 'extra's' then it might be worth having the extra 512mb.

Run Rivatuners 'performance monitor', and see how much your using currently.

Interesting stuff on the engine, though PT says it will be 2010 at least before the next instalment of the FS franchise - so we have a bit of a wait to see what they come up with.

That cam looks brilliant - I love EZ walk, a great little tool.
