Hi All,I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on which package would be better for flying low and slow over southern california- Ground Environment or Megascenery? All thoughts appreciated, thanks!Best,Joel

Since GE Pro came out I got rid of all my MS titles and sold them on EBAY.

very simple: Megascenery! GE PRO is nice to liven up the dull stock MS textures but photoscenery is depiction of the real thing. Never seen such beautiful mountains in SO/NOCAL. no problems with blurries at long as you have a moderate decent system and good settings.So I would love to see my FS world totally covered in photoreal scenery (so not the photo realistic texture tiles)Rob "Holland&Holland" de Vries http://fool.exler.ru/sm/fly2.gif"To go up, pull the stick back.

I flew VFR from from KMYF to KBLH last night and the quality of the graphics with FSG Landclass and Mesh, Ultimate Terrain and Ground Environment Pro is impressing - absolutely good enough for a VFR flight. I could identify all of the major landmarks, roads, lakes and VORs and that's good enough for me.I do have a video of the real-life flight from my flight school and it looked pretty darn close.Pat(Edit for typo)

I love my SoCal and NoCal Megascenery and use them for flying at 2500 to 5000. GEPro works great in the vast areas not covered by Megascenery. THe problem I see is that FSX will likely not be able to accomodate Megascenery with its new moving objects and such. So I am gonna stop purchasing Megascenery products for the time being.Randy Jura, KPDX

For me, I prefer photoreal for everything, because there is nothing like flying over the real thing. However, low and slow flyers, if you mean under 3,000 AGL, probably would prefer GE.
