AFAIK, there is only one: FTX Global. The rest (again, AFAIK) are regional, even if they do cover most of the planet if you get them all. I don't recall GEX covering everything, although it covers a lot. FScene might, but that seems to be so far behind the other two as to not be worth considering seriously (not that I've ever had it).

FTXG is a no brainer. It covers the entire world and offers 3d night lighting with adjustable sizes.

 

You also get many free upgraded airports that can be downloaded separately.

Remember though, if you get FTX Global, which is superb, you really need to also get FTX Vector.

You definitely need FTX Global.

It's the only real worldwide texture replacement.   It's very good.

But as said above, if you add FTX VECTOR, it will then gove you improved coastlines, inland water bodies, roads, etc, which really lifts worldwide coverage up a few notches.

UTX is roads, rivers, lakes, shorelines, and a few other things.

 

GEX is a FSX first generation texture program.

Oh okay, I thought UTX would enhance my Terrain, for example mountains and valleys

No UTX won't do that, and neither will FTX Global or FTX Vector; you will need a mesh addon like FS Global 2010 or FSGenesis.

FTX Global = Replacement FSX autogen and textures

 

FTX Vector = shorelines, golf courses, estuaries, rivers, parks, etc etc

 

Mesh = Terrain elevation and it's resolution in terms of height and contours this has nothing to do with the look, this is determined by FTX Global's texture files.

 

Landclass = How and where textures and autogen are geographically placed within the simulation.

 

FTX Regions = Complete regional enhancements that include all of the above. In addition they also include enhanced airports and autogen specific to the region.

 

I hope this helps.

It sounds like you could do with FTX Global, plus UTX Europe. i use these and they are a great combination, UTX providing accurate lakes and roads by which you can navigate visually if need be.

 

If you wish to save money buy GEX Europe and UTX Europe. GEX provides you with much better textures for Europe only and UTX places roads, towns, lakes etc. accurately.

Thank you Howard.

Pretty much sums it up.  I'll be purchasing FS Mesh 2010 + Global + Vector + Europe = 200 Euro + A2A C182 = 250,  sure why not,  poor credit card.
