Just a personal choice - I prefer REX Essentials + Overdrive for my sky, cloud, grass, runway, and taxiway textures.

I really shouldn't comment seeing as I have none of the addons I talk about, but I follow the forums quite a lot so from what I've picked up, for ground textures most people go for GEX (as already mentioned) or FTX Global.  I don't know much about GEX but I believe it is often used in conjunction with UTX (made to work together), while FTX Global vector is a similar product for FTX Global.  I think - as the name suggests - that FTX Global improves the land textures for the whole world, but I'm not sure about GEX.

 

As has been stated, rex 4 seems to be the big thing for airport, water and sky textures.

Just to throw a wrench in the works, I was not happy at all with REX4. Not nearly the options for tweaking as with Essentials. Like the cloud options better as well.

If one ignores the lack of undercarriage, it's actually quite a nice landing.

Also have REX 4 and I can let you know it's phenomenal. Installation is just under 5 seconds and contains textures that are the same quality as the overdrive version. Good choice too.

No, REX is NOT ground textures.

No, REX is NOT ground textures.

Certainly not in the same sense as GEX or Orbx Global but REX does give the user textures for the airport environment (Runway, Taxiway, Parking/Gate etc.) as well as great water textures.

Clouds& Effects- High Level, Low Level and Lightning

Sky Colors- Dawn, Day, Dusk and Sun effects

Airport- Airport Lighting, and Bumpmap

Runway and Taxiway- Both Asphalt and Concrete plus markings

My current combination is UTX/FTXG/FEX (with FSWC to tweak the water). Works great where I fly, which is northern Europe. But as has been said, it's very much a matter of personal preference.
