MegaScenery (Virginia) and P3D

Recommended Posts

I'm eyeing this product... read a bit about how it takes precedence over other scenery? I have Orbx LC ad NA products installed, as well as FreeMesh. Is MegaScenery a pretty good add on, or are there other scenery products for Virginia I might take a look at that would be competitive with MS? The product screenshots from their website look pretty mediocre to me.

I have Virginia V3 and it is okay but not earth-shattering.  Looks good at 3500 plus feet if you are looking for your house.  I also have Dzrewski Design Washington X which covers all of DC and inside the beltway.  It is photoscenery too but modified with more realistic structures in the area.  It includes KDCA and Andrews AFB.  I also have Wash Dulles.  When using non-default airports like Wash Dulles, it has trees and other scenery that looks realistic as you take off and land.  Same at Reagan and Andrews.  Megascenery should take precedence over Orbx LC but I do not own that product.  Autogen over Megascenery is horrible (IMHO).  I like the Blue Ridge Mountains and Megascenery does well with mountains.  The product page for Megascenery Virginia has several images and they are accurate. 

The AVSIM Photoreal Forum has more information about MSE and other photoreal products.

Best regards,

Jim

I own the entire USA in Megascenery2. I have tried a couple of their Megascenery3 products. I did not see that much difference between the version 2 and 3. I keep waiting for them to come out with V3 of Louisiana, the state where I live and have flown over extensively in real life. I believe i could then give it a more accurate assessment.

I find that besides the Megascenery purchases, you need to buy night light packages, if you fly at night, Living in the south, I don't worry about winter snow. However, if you live up north, the lack of snow might be a factor.

I also own ORBX's Global, NA LC, and Vector products. I find them to be very good and realistic, provided you don't expect the place where you live to look just like real life. The thing I miss most with photorealistic packages are the buildings on approaches. ORBX with updated third party airports seems to fit the bill for me.
