The VFR France scenery look very nice, from what I've seen, maybe not as good as Megascenery or GenerationX, but it would be nice to have somewhere else in Europe to fly. It's a shame thay don't have an english section on their website.

I just reinstalled the game (As you can all tell with the photo above). Anything I should also install as far as service packs?

As you're using a single core you may be best off NOT installing SP1 [or Acceleration inc.SP2], as it does seem to upset terrain loading and be an additional cause of stuttering for some people. The only trouble with that is some add-ons require SP1 to function, such as FEX...the vast majority are fine though.

You could try SP1 and if it makes things worse remove it.

Yea, some of France VFR's stuff is ported from fs2004, and isn't as high res as the megascenery stuff I have.
The south alpes pack is really nice though.
You can also check the site with google translator. The manuals come in english.

Also, making your own scenery with SbuilderX and google earth images is pretty easy, and cheaper

SP2 has been released. Its included in the Acceleration add on, but for those who do not have it this is the stand alone SP2 update.

Here's a few quick images of the new Alphasim F-86 Sabre. Its has some of the best textures I have seen, which is quite impresive comming from Alphasim. Its got the same reflective surface found on ther Cloud Dancer P-51 Racer, which looks much better in motion that in screens. The VC still sucks though. lol

Aren't these textures awesome? Other than doing a 1:1 crop I haven't modified this image at all.

I was compelled to install the France VFR Alps set after getting back from my real life trip to sharm el sheikh,on which my outbound flight from the UK to Sharm took a flight path over a large section of the alps which was stunning!

As its been noted its a patch up from FS9 and can suffer from the blurries big time in anything but RTM!

From what i can tell from posts by PT over at AVSIM this is because it uses 256x256 tiles which seems to put a massive strain no FSX's texture loader and no matter what tweaks i try (fiberframe mip bias ect ect) there always seems to be a bit of the landmass thats a blurry mess

the only way i've managed to keep it some what under control is to lock my FPS at 30 but that causes a slight sutter every 2 mins or so that i dont see under unlocked.....

Heres a few shots under DX10 (inc FEX) if you'ed like more just give a shout out

btw nice F-86 Sabre shots any chance you could post a few ****pit shots?

Lol C0ckpit is block
