New to FSX - Scenery Add-On Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Folks,

 

I'm new to FSX, and currently have it and FS Global Ultimate for North America and Europe/Africa installed. Much of my flying will be with the PMDG 737NGX, and would appreciate some advice on what other scenery packages and weather packages I should get for the best visual experience.

 

Thanks in advance for any advice!

 

-Will

Welcome to FSX. Suggest browsing this and other forums for the information you seek. I'm sure you will find good recommendations based on the type of flying you prefer.

Well for starters, try FTX.... those guys are the creators of Orbx. They did a fantastic job with the Pacific Northwest Scenery and the Colorado Rockies. Then take a look at FSdreamteam, Flightbeam Studios, Drzewiecki Design, and Aerosoft for the airports and surrounding cities.

 

.....and be prepared to fill your harddrive.

Strange... Noone yet mentioned FlyTampa. They've done some great sceneries (St.Marteen and Kai Tak are my favorites).

Not essential at all if you only fly in areas where there is good quality scenery. For e.g. - I have Orbx - OZ, NA and NZ. Avsim members have posted before that UTX and GEX would not add anything where you have Orbx installed.
