How about 30cm Oahu with 5m mesh? Only $15 if you pre-order...

No autogen but if you have magascenery you can apparently use the autogen files from that.

So far so good... Now that I have the F/A-18 I'm less excited about this one, but I might get it just for another flight model to play with. The burner can sure look awesome, but it probably won't be out for a good 6 months.

Aerosoft gets to me becuase they have been advertising the F-16 in PC pilot and Computer Pilot magazines as if it is available, and they have been doing that for over a year, despite the fact is not even close to being ready. If you ask them why they advertise products that are not available they blame it on the advertiser and claim they have no control of it.

Well... I managed to get banned from Avsim. I made a post which contained video links and a single pic of the up comming Shockwave Boeing 377, and they banned me!

I guess the video below is appropriate. lol Make sure you have your sound turned on for full effect.

I'm not keen on avsim TBH - It is big, and there is a lot of useful stuff to be had there, but I find the way the forums are moderated to be petty, and the rules and regs totally OTT.

Nvidia and DX10: The way it's meant to be gayed.

Flashing textures, dysfunctional AA, and broken vsync. Meanwhile the driver team spends all it's time optimizing for canned benchmarks and .5 more fps in Crisis and futuremark.



8800GTX/Vista x64/FSX Acceleration DX10.

On a side note, GEX enhanced has now been released free to all previous GEX customers. http://www.simforums.com/forums/foru....asp?TID=24993

And UTX Europe is to be released this week. http://www.simforums.com/forums/foru....asp?TID=24937

I'm looking at UTX and GEX for USA. Does anybody have an opinion on which one to get?

Would be nice to see my city as it actually is. Its about 150,000 so from what I've read UTX will have data for it, but would GEX have any data for it?

From what I see UTX provides lots of accurate data and GEX provides the best visuals. Is that about right? Can both be used at the same time?

I use both Utx-Usa and Gex Usa-Canada. They coexist well together, even enhance one another imo.

Gex is just a straight up ground texture replacement, it includes no landclass. Imo the textures look much better than default. Especialy the new enhanced textures which were just released this week. Every texture was tweaked and a new 1.7gb version is up for DL.

UTX includes landclass for urban population centers. It also includes coastlines, roads, railroads/yards, water bodies, rivers, streams, cemetaries, 3d bridges, beaches, glaciers, industrial centers, etc, which are all derived from the best currently available real world data. It also includes night lighting for street lights, and intersections. It features much more ai ground traffic than default because it even fills the smaller roads with traffic. It has a nice interface so you can easily configure what options to use or not.

UTX doesn't include landclass for rural areas. For that you can use the default fsx landclass, or you can layer in whatever landclass you prefer between UTX's urban and vegetation layers.

More utx/gex info in this thread.

I have FSGenesis Usa landclass layered in, mostly because it came free with their mesh package. For the rest of the world I have purchased X-Class landclass which I think is a nice product and I like the price. I might buy Xclass-Usa landclass just to check it out.

One thing that's cool, Justin from FSGenesis has figured out how to get rid of the airport platau's seen when using higher than default res mesh. He is recompiling all his mesh as we speak. As soon as it's all done I'm gonna refly all the missions.

I personaly can't wait to get my hands on UTX Europe because most of Europe is very vague in FSX. Especialy the type of things corrected by UTX, like roads-coastlines-water bodies-bridges', etc. For instance Europe has some deep ravines that are traversed by very high bridges. UTX adds them, which has to improve the experience. Check out this thread. Look at some of the coastline pics, such as Greece. And some of the high bridges I mentioned.

As far as which one to get, I'd say both. But if you have to have just one, I think UTX does things I really like. When I fly over an area I like to see the geographic shape of the coastlines, rivers, and other features. I took the Acceleration F18 and flew the east coast from KMIA to KPHL, it took roughly 2 hours give or take. Imo it was nice to finaly get an idea of just how the land is laid out. Things like the Outer Banks and back bays look a bit different from the air. Seeing as how the fsx world is such a huge place, and some parts I may visit only once, I'd like everthing to be as geographicaly correct as possible. Especialy since I may never see those places in real life myself, much less from the air.
