Necessity for openLC North America and Vector?

Recommended Posts

I'm a fully satisfied user of FTX Global and wondering if purchasing openLC North America and Vectors will make a significant difference. Like I said, I am satisfied with FTX Global but there are areas, mainly the southwest desert area of the US, which seem a bit weak to me. Will openLC North America patch that up and generally further improve the sim?

I typically fly in the midwest and OpenLC NA made a huge difference is the display of redundant ground textures.  It is also supposed to have more realistic textures for deserts and other terrain types.  So for me, it's a recommended buy.

 

FTX Vector is bit more of a maybe.  If you do a lot of GA flying then I would say yes.  It corrects some issues with FSX, gives more accurate roads, etc.  

 

If you fly only airlines and don't pay much attention to the accuracy of roads, etc. then it is less necessary.  It will also cost you a bit of frame rate, although not a sufficient amount to be a issue.

 

However, since both are on sale, now would be the time to get them.

That's exactly why I'm considering buying them now. I do airline flying exclusively so I think I'll pass on Vector. OpenLC NA seems to be a very reasonable buy though.
