MSE Florida 2.0- West of Lake Okeechobee

Recommended Posts

Guys, a bit of off topic question (sorry). On this new MSE 2.0, is it strictly photo scenes, or can you actually see hills and mountains rise at lower altitudes ?

No problem here....

 

 

Best regard,

I think he's talking about the colorization of the textures, in which your shot shows the same issue! Blue-greenish land textures vs the greener texture of the satellite photo and the goldish-brown water.

I don't think so Tom. I have no land mass in the water like he has. Mine is simply the goldish-brown water. My picture is upside down too. He has a lot of land in the water.

It's not flat except where the world is flat. Lots of hills and valleys to explore.

Problem almost solved if UT Exclusions For Default Scenery from Ultimate Terrain X USA is not activated :

The marshland at the western portion is pretty visible in real life (brownish as apposed to the deep blue/green of the lake itself) and looks like a solid piece of land until you fly lower enough over the area to see the water in between the sawgrass. I'm not an owner of Florida 2.0 but based on the screencaps i'd say the one showing the brownish area on the western edge is more accurate to reality than the screenie that doesnt show it.

 

I have a few pics from a flight I did over the area I'd like to attatch but can't seem to find a means to do so.

Since though the land mass exists on the satellite image, then that would mean the problem would be with your installation, not his? Lake Okeechobee water levels has been at historic lows, which would account for the extra land mass in the lake.

I have the previous versions for entire CA, Arizona, Utah, Las Vegas and NewMexico...They look awesome. I wonder if the new version looks better?

I have been eyeing Florida. I was wondering, are there any clouds on the imagery, or is it clean? previous version had some problems in that department...

I'm interested in getting this as well.

 

Does using this photo scenery automatically wipe out "all" auto-gen from appearing? How about vehicle traffic?

 

Thanks!

Can't speak directly as to MSE FL but I do know that vehicular traffic in MSE VA, NC, & WV is alive and well

I am looking at this too and will be interested to find out about traffic and addon areas.

 

I have never used a Mega Earth so not sure how it works. I do have Miami, FlyTampa, and creating my local airports. Looking at Fort Lauderdale too.

 

So does this interfere with any of these things?

Don't think vehicular traffic in MSE works if you don't have UTX.

 

I do not have UTX installed (own it though) and I have lots of car traffic.

Ok, that lake in the screenshots is watermasked, hence FSX will use whatever texture or color you have set (if using REX for example) for inland lakes/rivers.... So the actual color of that lake can be changed by REX or another product that can modify your textures. As for those land textures missing, I don't see those either. Perhaps another UTX/GEX type addon is interfering there?

Yes of course you can see hills and mountains :) And they generally look really good in MegaSceneryEarth too because they are textured just like they are in real life. The MSE 2.0 textures simply overlay on top of your terrain mesh. Take a look at some of our MSE 2.0 videos on YouTube which show how the mountains look (check out the Vermont/New Hampshire videos in particular) - http://www.youtube.com/user/pcaviatoraustralia

I haven't check the whole state (yet), but yes there are some clouds here are there. They are very sparse in number and quite isolated. Most all of the state is pretty clear really, but yes, you will come across the odd cloud in Florida.

Vehicular traffic does work in MSE 2.0 without UTX - It shows the default road traffic on major highways/roads etc.

Some of the videos on the site mentioned above show the traffic on roads with MSE 2.0.

Look at the videos on the page mentioned above, and you can see exactly how it looks in FSX. Regarding other airport scenery products, generally these will work with few or no problems with MegaSceneryEarth 2.0. You just need to make sure the airport scenery is layered higher in the Scenery Library.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll probably buy it sometime in the future... Too many other expenses right now to be able to get anything for FSX.

What a great guy for taking the time to answer everyone's questions!

Thank you for your answers, PCpilot.

 

Uh, I think you meant PCAviator? I appreciate the comments from the developers here too!

 

Best regards,
