As i said i dont want to sound like an ass but your making it seem like your reading time is more valuable than the time it would take anyone of us to repost all this stuff

also im sure once you have 1 set of questions answered you'll no dout have more,again most which would have no dout been answered by reading this thread in the first place!

its not that we dont want to help you out,i and everyone who posts in this thread will gladly help out any new comers to FSX but you can really expect us to keep reposting the same old stuff over and over again,if its DX10 your intrested in start at the last page and work back as DX10 wasnt added to FSX that long ago

just to also let you know these guys have been the most helpful bunch of ppl ive come across in the FSX community and dont have the holyer than thou attitude of places like AVsim if you'ed have posted there what you did here they'ed more than likly have band you!

well........... I tried scenery solutions Ultimate Terrain X USA and stuck EVERYTHING on Max.



It didnt run the best. In fact it was decidedly jerky, so that was a fail. It looked pretty nice, but the buildings still looked fairly ****e.

meh.

I think you'll find the main thing that rapes your FSP with UTX is the street lighting,even durning day time flights when there not being displayed they still drain frames!

Im not sure why there such a massive hit under UTX as i see no frame hit with street lighting in FTX's AU Blue.....maybe the UTX guys need a few lessons in code tweaking from orbx

Would be good if it is for the whole world but otherwise USA and south America would be my priorities.
Ground Environment X covers all of the USA and Canada, so that might be what you are looking for. You can also get the North America Mesh from FSGenesis to go along with it, which includes 10m mesh for USA and 20m for Canada. If you are getting GEX its best to get UTX as well.

GEX + UTX + 10m Mesh is currently the best way to go for North America.

Here's what chicago looks like with GEX + UTX. Read pages 62 through 64 of this thread for more info and comparison images.

Dam amazing sim, the screenshots rock. Anyone have a PBY Catalina model? I've looked at the Abacus one and I've seen the Aerosoft one that was in the thread.

Abacus stuff is just a step up above freeware, which means its not the stuff I would spend money on, so if you don't mind waiting a couple months go for the Aerosoft one, which will be top notch for sure. Even Alphasim makes better stuff than Abacus.

Rick Piper very kindly let my try a beta of his forthcoming BAe Hawk - I'm testing it here over the new V2 GenerationX UK Photoscenery, which now includes night lighting, water masks and an updated 5m terrain mesh...both are absolutely stunning!.

That was supposed to be fixed in one of the updates but I still saw happening.

^ The plane looks good but the scenery looks like it is from FS95.
