More new GEX textures..WOW!

Recommended Posts

with GEX 2.0 and UTX 2.0 in FSX SE, my fps performance is amazing with all sliders full right.  Doesn't look like FTX GLOBAL will be re-installed.

Interesting FSXSEPILOT. I'm just really torn here.

 

GEX: I own all of the regions and the price to upgrade to NA 2 is minimal

 

FTX Global: Big upfront cost, but I'll be able to leave my 6 FTX regions activated in hybrid mode. I just didn't like the constant switching between regions before. I almost never fly within only one region. I also have Jackson Hole and Ketchikan airports. I wouldn't install these if I went the GEX route because they are useless without the FTX regions. 

 

Save a $70 or make use of $150 dollars worth of add ons already purchased. A woman would be able to justify one of the options, but if I ask my wife for advice, she would kick my butt either way knowing that I send so much on FS:)

GEX textures looked worse in Midwest than default fsx and missing water towers and barns hurt the feel and I uninstalled it. GEX 2.0 won't make difference as autogen setup may optimize performance but lose barns, churches, water towers. Those missing do make a difference flying in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Manitoba. It's subjective opinion but GEX 2 looks no different than one.

I just updated and left PHX for SAN. So far I see no obvious difference!??

GEX NA V2.00  300-5000 ft.

 

Your Elevation May Vary

 
I am a flight sim glider pilot and professional musician with 20/20 vision and  I've traveled from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego and beyond. 
 
The best compliment I can give Nick and the Flight1 crew is that when I return to Mount Denali. the Rocky Mountains or Lake Tahoe it looks exactly like I remember it, only the distant view is better.
 
It's like flying through beautiful detailed semi-gloss postcards and that's just the way I like it.

"So far, UTX USA 2.0 has severely caused performance issues, even with the default settings and I need to work on the UTX configurations. I'll get it figured out or move on."

 

An update: The above was from an earlier statement I made in Post #15. I reinstalled UTX with Admin Rights and did not touch any of the settings in the program and it works great. In fact, I'm now using GEX/UTX exclusively for many flights and disabled all of my photoscenery as this stuff looks pretty realistic.
