Photoreal and add-ons ?

Recommended Posts

I received this letter below from a customer who has found a good configuration using UTX.Can someone please add to this information? Hi Larry,I'm really glad to hear about progress on the upgrades, especially for Texas. At least 90% of my flights are within 200 miles of Houston. The higher definition will greatly help since I use a 67" DLP as a monitor. I think I mentioned before, Sim Savvy works really well with Ultimate Terrain X. Savvy and UTX are great companion products. "Savvy by day, UTX by night!" Everything between the two line up perfectly, even the vehicle traffic on the numerous back roads. UTX corrected many FSX default object locations so, for example, major sports stadiums are placed perfectly with Savvy's parking lots, etc. I think you have cured me from Auto-Gen scenery. Now I keep Auto-Gen off even when I'm not on your photos. This allows me to crank up the object density for airport buildings etc to maximum. I switch your scenery off during night flights and let the UTX pick up from the layer below. It's hard to beat UTX night effects although the elevated UTX street lights actually will show on top of Savvy so your stuff is not totally dark at night. When it comes to water, the UTX water would align with Savvy's photos perfectly, but I have not been able to layer the UTX water on top of your photos. If that could be done, it would be a knock-out! Default FSX does not have the extensive rivers, coastlines, bayous, etc. that UTX does. You might consider nudging your resources in the direction of resolving water issues using UTX. I think the two products could really enhance each other! You have raised my FSX to a new level of realism. No longer do I worry about running off the edge of the photo world after only a hundred miles are so. Your unlimited horizon is what sets Savvy apart from xxxx-xxxxx. I look forward to your upgrades. (I'm totally happy with what I've already gotten from you!)

Could someone who has UTX installed take a few screenshots of the Mississippi Sound. Maybe about 20 miles east of KNBG - NAS New Orleans. SimSavvy is a mess in this area. This might give us a new direction to head in curing the water masking. Thanks for the post.The EFB chart has the location of athe plane when I snapped the screenshot.RayLA-MS.jpgLA-MSlocation.jpg
