What is the "best value" in photo real scenery

Recommended Posts

i'm on a budget and don't have $200 to spend on Switzerland pro X. wish i did! At about 7,000 to 10,000 ft what is the best value? Doesn't have to be a whole country even. I'd probably prefer Europe but other regions would also be fine. Not Canada or Australia since i already have Orbx. thanks...................Bill

MegaSceneryX. Even the 2004 versions will work in FSX. About $40 for areas as large as Southern California. I don't fly in Europe so not sure about what's available there so will leave that to others. Best regards,Jim

NL2000 v4 - complete freeware photoscenery of the Netherlands. Well worth checking out.Liguria & Tuscany North Photoreal - freeware photoscenery of parts of Italy. Get it from OzX downloads. There is also photoscenery of the Grand Canyon available from OzX.Someone also mentioned that there is freeware photoscenery of Spain available - not sure where though.You may also want to check out Real Earth X who have some freeware photoreal areas of the Alps. Payware there is VFR Germany, VFR UK, VFR Poland and VFR France. Also a number of islands have been done like Bornholm; Maderia; Ibiza; Mallorca & Majorca; Earth Simulations Guernsey & Isles of Scilly etc. MegasceneryX Hawaii is still holding up well after all these years + there is some freeware available of Kauai and Niihau (by Ironhand at Lockon Files I think). Apprently there is also an Austria Pro Photoreal under development but news is scarce on this one. There is more of course but that's about it off the top of my head.

For $200 your best bet would be SimSavvy USA. It covers the entire country, and comes on a USB 3.0 500GB Hard Drive. They just released a HD version at 50cm for $49 dollars more. Not a bad deal if you like Photoreal scenery, considering you get an External Hard Drive with it. http://www.sim-savvy.com/ Edit: Misread your post, thought it said your budget is $200. Sorry! Still this is a good deal!!

There are some excellent freeware photoreals of Hawaiian islands Kauai and Niihau by Ironhand available from Lockonfiles. Team these with MegasceneryX Hawaii and you will have some stunning scenery. Ironhand's stuff is some of the best photoreal I've seen and Hawaii is spectacular. http://www.lockonfiles.com/index.php/files/category/28-fsx-scenery-packs/ http://www.megascenery.com/MegaSceneryXHawaii.htm Another freeware photoreal is Death Valley with mesh by Holger available at OzX http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/files/file/525-death-valley-holgermesh/ Cheers, Noel.

You can get a state or almost all of a state for free from simsavvy just for the asking. Instructions at the conclusion of this avsim review. http://www.avsim.com...mSavvy/USA.html Enjoy. Ray
A lot of the files are missing from avsim. megaupload is tough on you if you don't have an account. Is there any other way?

You e-mail SS. They send you a flash drive with your state loaded. You transfer the files to your computer. You send the flash drive back to SS. You do not download any files from anywhere.

I don't know what happened, but I was referring to bluesky.
