UTX and GEX in FSX-SE

Recommended Posts

Just curious, has anyone tried using GEX and UTX with FSX-SE?  I'm putting my FSX back together since a system overhaul and still have the packages. Just wondering if anyone has used them and what the results might have been.

Thanks

I was quite pleased to find out after years of not playing FSX since my boxed acceleration version would never install on my Windows 7 machine, that all of my UTX scenery and GEX not only worked when I switched to FSX:SE, they even updated to the most recent versions :biggrin: so it was money well spent many years ago. I haven't noticed any issues at all and the 3D lights finally properly work for me. They never did on my old XP machine (flickering, etc).

I installed both UTX and GEX which didn't cause any glitches and all seems to be fine. However, yesterday when I validated my files due to some missing scenery areas, I ended up with a 17gb download from Steam. I checked all my FSX files and it appears that my scenery directory was downloaded again. UTX says it's active and verifies. Interesting. I'll try to get some time to make a flight and see what's what. I wondered what would happen when you modify the FS files with add-ons and then verified with Steam. I think now I know. It's going to take some testing though to actually verify what happened.  I also wonder if the gauges directory would be affected if you install a 3rd party aircraft and later on verify, or if you modify a stock aircraft and verify.

This will be an interesting little journey through Steams impact on the program. Maybe nothing, maybe something. We'll see.

This will be very interesting since I havent dared to verify gamecache since when I only had a few addons, mainly DLCs. Now with loads of addons I wonder what will happen to addons like FTX Global, UTX2 and Toga Envtex f.e.
