GE Pro and UT Terrain USA/Canada

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a question with Ultimate Terrain. I have GE Pro on my system and love the textures, If I purchase Ultimate Terrain for USA and Canada/Alaska, will my GE Pro textures go away? Will it just overwrite my GE Pro textures? Which is better Ge Pro or UT?Thanks,Bill

Hi Bill,I have GE Pro and UT USA installed and they work perfectly in tandem.UT wont overwrite your GE Pro textures it basically adds roads rivers rail tracks and align's your autogen properly also it adds some outstanding night lighting effects,and you can also create your own custom textures with GE Pro to work side by side with Active Sky too.I cant imagine FS9 without them both installed.Regards,Martin.

Is there any sequence necessary to install these? I have UT (Can/Ak & USA) already- can GE Pro be installed on top?If GE Pro is as good as UT, then it's on my Xmas list for sure. (Re the query on FPS- I could see no real hit with UT turned on full blast- & this on my old AMD 1.8 with triple monitors.)Alex Reid CYYJ

Martin and others;I wanted to ask if any spec order is needed to install the add on's. I.E. At this point in my re-install (I Erased my Hard drive and have re-installed FS9 and the other mentioned) I first installed all of the FSG Mesh then theUT for both USA and AK/CAN. If I now purchase and install the GE Pro on top (or after) the above mentioned re-install steps of all FSG Mesh then UT USA and UT AK/CAN will this work out or must any steps be performed in any particular order.Thank you.Mark.System:OS:MS Windows XP Professional, Ver 2002 Service Pack 2 Hardware:Intel Pentium® 4 CPU 2.802.84 GHz, 3.00 GB of RAM Radeon X1600 Pro 512MB running a 21/19.6 Sony Flat Screen Tubed Monitorand a 17/16 NEC/Mitsubishi Tubed MonitorGeForce FX 5200 128MB running a NEC/Mitsubishi 18 Flat Panel.

Hi Bill,If I remember correctly you can disable the night lights in UT if you wish to.Theres various settings regarding the lights to choose from.I have the night lighting on because when your on approach into a busy airport city the lights seem to project from the ground as real lighting would and it really does add realism to the sim at night.Regards,Martin.

MartinI want to say thanks for your imput with the results you have had. I wanted to ask if you also use any Mesh. I have All of the FSG mesh and just want to understand if the FSG mesh then the UT USA, UT AK and CAN then the install of GE pro will be ok .

Thanks for your time Martin.My more specific question should be FSG, UT (can, AK and USA) and then GE pro.If I hear you correct it looks OK. I can not point to any reason for the order of Install, I guess I have been reading too much or not the whole post, Ha Ha..Thank You.
