Something wonderful has arrived and its not from PMDG.

Recommended Posts

It is the latest scenery release by Earth Simulations, Guernsey/Sark & Herm, 3 of the islands which make up part of the Channel Islands in the UK near the French coast. I very rarely get excited or rave about any of the latest FSX addon releases but this is something special, something extraordinary. In my time I have used many excellent scenery addons, from the likes of Orbx/Megascenery X/Horizon VFR/AS Germany VFR/NL2000v4/Blue Sky Scenery etc. Many are excellent and do a really good job of depicting the area they cover but now something has arrived which takes scenery realism/detail and accuracy to a whole new level, Earth Simulation's Guernsey. Combining high resolution photoreal imaging, highly detailed water masking, complex mesh depicting shearing cliffs and sloping hills and hand made/hand placed custom made 3D autogen showing every structure, building, house, tree and bush! Not only that, the scenery comes in 5 different seasons (winter & hard winter) which shows off the amazing transformation of the landscape during each season. After spending several days flying and exploring this scenery I can say with full confidence that this scenery is the most realistic depiction of an area I have ever seen in FSX. In my humble opinion it is 'The Best' scenery to date for FSX, full stop. ES's Guernsey scenery is the equivalent of what PMDG's 737NGX means to all aircraft releases that have come before it, it is in a class of its own! I have made a small compilation of shots to try and show you, the viewer, why I'm raving about this scenery. The shots will hopefully convey and confirm what I have been saying so far, even I feel that my screen shots do not do this amazing scenery justice! I hope in time I can fully explore and grasp this entire scenery and show you more & better shots in the future. But for now do please enjoy a small selection of shots taken from a batch which can be fully viewed HERE Enjoy and as always, all shots are unedited apart from resized & JPG'd.

Alas that is the only downside with highly detailed scenery like this, it requires more HD space. Although it is not too bad, the entire scenery weighs in at @4.2Gb.
Flippin Stunning Soya!!! Wow :)
Thanks Tim, good to hear from you again, it has been a while since I seen you post in any screen shot sections. I miss seeing any screen shots from you but I am sure you are busy with other things. Cheers.
Soya, you're not as active on the Mcphat forums, where have you gone?LoveYour no.1 Fan ;)
Busy with real life I'm afraid, I wish I had more spare time but whenever I do, I will try to share anything new I have. Thanks for your support.
Wow, I had to laugh at your title, but this is just amazing! im%20Not%20Worthy.gif
Thank you and it is good to laugh :)

So! You have taken it upon yourself to attack PMDG have you??? Something wonderful has arrived and IT"S NOT PMDG????? I get it, sure. Apparently you have to crash our PMDG 737 NGX screenshot orgy and cast a dismal pall over the joy we simmers have been having posting PMDG 737 NGX screenshots up until now. I shall bring your post to the attention of the Sarah Palin Volunteer Commitee for UnAmerican Activities (SPVCUA). You got your own self into this boat.
Stop your offence and no politics, please!

Best regards, Steffen
