Would be interesting to hear some reviews, I could name quite a lot of places where proper forest coverage could make a difference. 

 

At least the Experience X product from this developer is great.

Why do you feel that way? Is it because YOUR system may struggle? Personally, I am going to keep an eye open on this one because I think it is a great idea.

I had a look, and I'm afraid the description is rather vague.

 

Is this increasing the density of autogen trees (like the slider in FSX)? 

OR

Is this a texture replacement?

OR

Is it a landclass addon?

It seems a bit pointless to me... I mean you can alter the amount of trees by simply changing the value in the cfg.

Well to avoid the flame wars of who's is bigger, I would suggest that 5x% has posted computer specs that are not bad, so maybe we can redirect this question?

 

I would also like to know why the thought of denser tree coverage is a bad thing? Accounts from actual users is the original posters request I would think, so maybe we can get some feed back to that regard, and/or 5x5 can expand on his/her comment for the sake of discussion?

 

The only negative I can perhaps foresee is the possibility that FSX will struggle a little more to draw those vast forests at distances, making the pop in/fill in tree effect more pronounced, which would look even more goofy than it already does.

 

It seems a bit pointless to me... I mean you can alter the amount of trees by simply changing the value in the cfg.

And there is this good point too. It would be kind of silly to pay for something that you can easily modify in notepad...

Although.... if the trees have been redesigned in a way that they have fewer polys than default trees and help with performance, then perhaps that may be a good reason to purchase, if not, then I'm scratching my head.

it's not a good idea for all the FPS complainers in the FSX forum, my system loves FSX and XP10...over 30fps all the time even over cities :lol:

I too am wondering whether this just re-configures autogen tree coverage, or whether it's landclass based and / or textures.

 

To be honest, the video and screenshots on the above linked sales page, really aren't impressive at all to me - I could barely notice anything different to default!

Not sure why you would post treex as it is a different product - full forest may have some technology we don't know about I hope I want it but not the fps hit that wouldn't make sense

I checked the page and the video - seriously? Not a single comparison shot? How the heck else am I supposed to judge the value of this product?? Well, besides letting other people try it out first and report back. Sorry BIGSKY but your images still don't help. I have no idea if that last shot looks any better than the default trees

This looks sort of bogus to me.  I have my autogen set at max most of the time except when flying large urban areas....I have bazillions of trees....I don't see what this product is doing beyond changing fsx factors that are already available for the user to change.

I'll gladly see Gibaba in this topic to take a few words on the product. I know he visit AVSIM from time to time.

I am assuming this is a texture replacement, but I may be wrong.

There are of course ways to increase performance by changing the way trees are designed and this has been accomplished big time by Orbx with their New Zealand sceneries. But it seems rather silly for a developer selling a product without  indicating to the customer about any actual benefits. Saying things like...  Full ForestX adds dense and beautiful forests.....Live a better experience on VFR flights...Quality flight and exciting...Doesn't cut the mustard!

They're going to have to do a lot better than that to sell to us hardened simmers B)

What I would like to have would be a product that would add a lot more rainforest to area of Thailand... Currently most of it looks more like Southern Europe or something, not even nearly enough forest landlcass.

I'm not too sure that I'd agree with this statement. I, like a lot of Experience X users, are still waiting for a fix to reduce its FPS hit. Oh, and a decent, unambiguous user manual would be nice as well.

 

But I digress...

I completely agree with garydpoole .  I am a purchaser of Experience X which is currently uninstalled because it is not working with my setup and yes... I have attempted several emails with the developer.  Unfortunately the emails are just as confusing if not more than the installation instructions. 

 

I have written the purchase off as a bad choice on my part and moved on.  I personally would not consider another purchase from this developer unless he markets his products thru Flight 1 which allows full refunds during first 30 days..

Ok I emailed the developer and got a reply quite fast, he said it's autogen based product, I'm still not really sure how exactly it modifies the amount of trees.

 

At least for now I think I will just wait for a review.

Sounds like it does something that is easily accomplished by a simple cfg tweak...a rather vague answer from a developer might be interpreted as "it doesn't do anything special that you couldn't do yourself".
Unless it comes with a new set of textures for the autogen, I can't see it being worth paying for.

Yeah well he also said it would modify some forests that are misplaced by default in FSX or something like that, in any case I would want to see a review and more info.
