Confused about Blackmarble and ORBX Vector, openLC, Global, Full Regions, etc.

Recommended Posts

Since I enjoy flying during dusk, dawn and night times because I really love night lighting. One thing that I miss from X-Plane, and now that BlackMarble is here, I'm seriously interested in this product. But the confusion still remains and I can't seem to get a clear answer of how this all works. BlackMarble consists of the Base, and the other 3 (BM Vector, AI traffic, Bridges) are optional. 

I already have Orbx Global Textures, Orbx Vector, openLC NA, EU, SA, Full Regions, Airports, etc. Now if I purchase BlackMarble, will they play nicely with my current OrbX setup? My understanding is that BlackMarble is a global night lighting replacement for the sim. So does this mean if I want to see BM in full effect then I will need to disable the road specific options in ORBX Vector? And Also, what about Orbx Full Regions? How does BM and that get along? Will I be able to see BM's night lighting in OrbX Full Regions?

Lastly, BM's AI Traffic pack. What is this exactly for, since we already have AI cars already in Prepar3D, why would this be necessary?

This is quite an expensive package, and I just want to be clear and do my research before purchasing it. If for some reason, it doesn't meet my expectations, can I get a full refund?
