I bought FTX before work and started the download, which was very fast. It only took a couple minutes for 775MB. I'll install it when I get home tonight and let you know what I think.

Cool i look forward to your reading your views

Mangos shots look good but i really have to take anything he posts with a pinch of salt...just look at the fanfare he made about DX10 on the fsworld forums then look at the reality....

Holy sht that looks good. Hurry up with those screenies.

I wonder if those are cherry picked screenies, 'cause if they aren't this looks better than GEX.

Those shots where cherry picked by me, but there are a hundred more just like them. I'll post my own later but until then here's some more from Mango....

Woohoo! Despite Avsim blocking my three IP addresses I managed to get back in with my sillyeagle account! My ISP assigns IPs based upon MAC, so all I had to do was log into my router and change the MAC, and I got a new IP. Take that AVSIM!!!!

FTX screens to come....

When I first fired up I was getting horrible performance with my normal settings. I averaged 20fps, and would get as low at 10 in Sydney. It was a big dissapointment, but when I fired it up the second time and stepped autogen down to dense I was surprised. I was now averaging 30fps and getting as high as 50. Even when setting it back to very dense performance is still acceptable, which is quite impressive.

Its by far the best looking scenery product flight sim has ever seen, without question. This is the ultimate product for low and slow, and because the autogen is scaled better(smaller) you get a much better sense of speed down low. It really adds to the feel of being there.

Here's a few shots to show what you get. The ones with wider zoom are around .4, and the tigher shots are with my most used setting of .60 zoom.

The brown texures are summer, the green ones which I like better are spring.

Oh and here's the freeware Australia mesh referenced in the user manual.

These are running around 28fps, and I'm on my 3.0GHz Quad.

Looks very good indeed Silly. I'm very impressed with the autogen, which is much better due to it being in scale, which is my biggest issue with using it over my photosceney - houses and trees can be over twice the size they should be..

Is there an "airshow" map or airport that we can select in FSX?
