Great thread many thx for the tweaks and info/cfg's ect ect ect

Gotta say i just got the MegaSceneryX - Hawaii addon & i love it




Only thing is it after flying around Hawaii with that much detail it makes
the rest of (non-modded) FSX look a little crappy

Nice shot!

Here's a cool product. For $10 its intalls into all twenty one of the default aircraft, and can be added to any 3rd party add ons as well.

Well, I did it. Lol. After reading day after day of you guys having fun with it I bought it again. I wanted to wait until I upgraded my PC but who knows how long that will be. Also, I figured since SP1 came out and with the tweaks mentioned in here I can get some good performance out of it on my system.

Sun setting over Exmoor - in one of my favorite planes the 'Tiger Moth' by Just Flight, with VFR scenery by Horizon Simulations - full Engalnd and Wales scenery if your looking for somewhere else to fly with the same quality of Hawaii omzig.

Cheers and those Vegas shot are stunning too - I havn't done that flight for ages or much else outside of the uk since getting GenerationX uk scenery...I did however pick up Hawaii after seeing Sillyeagles shots and thats great too, and such a cheap download.

If you get the UK VFR scenery just make sure you get the Horizon Simulations pack and NOT Just Flights, it is so much better. Over the next few weeks they're releasing night lighting and inland water masks, which look amazing.

Check out the Horizon forums [need to register to access some parts of the forum] for a sneak peak of that and their London project.

Thx for the heads up & link

Just checked at play.com and yes they are the Horizon packs at 17.99 each which is almost half of what there priced at in horizons own store!


Just had a quick poke around the non member threads of the horizon forums and came across these






Horizon VFR + Flight Environment X

more shots here

I thought ASX looked good but the clouds in FEX look stunning!

At this rate I think i'll have to add a new hdd+trackIR to my FSX shopping list aswell hehe

Stunning shots by Vox'tm from the Horizon forums - he is BETA testing FEX and it looks to be better than ASX. I'm glad I didn't get ASX now [came close] as I'm most certainly putting this on the shopping list.

You could spend an absolute fortune on FSX if you wanted to..I've spent over 150 and that is nothing in this hobby.

Play.com's offer is outstanding - snap-em-up!

Be sure, if you do, to download the latest installer from the Horizon download section...also register each volume and get the updates/patches for each one and install them straight away.

Oh and don't forget to join the horizon forums - a great knowledge base and very friendly.

Aweosme shots. I wonder what kind of rig it would take to run the game looking like that though.
