No pictures as they have pictures on the MegaScenery site. Images are meaningless as you won't see any comparisons. Just want to add, they updated Montana, Virginia, and Texas too!  I has no color and clarity and they say it is 45% higher resolution than the previous release of V3.  What I like about it so far is the colors are more realistic but I still cannot see my garage door opening and closing when I fly over my house.... (tongue in cheek).  There have been many other updates using the latest technology for photo scenery.  More info at - https://www.megasceneryearth.com/

I have long been a fan of MSE going back to my FS2004 PNW, SoCal, NorCal, Washington DC days clear through to MSE Idaho V3 for FSX.

I use MSE less now, though, for two reasons, no autogen and no seasons.  For awhile I fixed the no autogen issue in selected areas with autogen annotator, but to me there was something inherently wrong with flying over Idaho in the winter and seeing absolutely zero snow.

MSE was always amazing to me as I flew.  I could actually spot the rock my son and I named "Elk Poop Rock" and see the clearcut area where I hunted for elk in the fall.  I could overfly my son's workplace and actually spot his vehicle parked in employee parking and see my beat up old 1971 Ford pickup outlined in the driveway at my house. 

I moved away from MSE after becoming tired of always having to add in trees and key buildings to add realism to my approaches, but I would return and spend hundreds of dollars on their products in a heart beat if they ever "solved" the autogen/season change issue that for me is a show-stopper.

Great story Randy!  Back when MegaScenery was first released we didn't have the fancy airports like at SeattleX, WashX, FlightBeans KIAD, etc., to take off and land from.  But now those sceneries include large buildings and trees making it more realistic.  I fly the heavies mostly and at FL350 hard to see the objects and trees anyway.  I just love flying into Dulles (KIAD) on Runway 1C where the flight path is over a bunch of tries near the Air and Space Museum.  Extremely realistic!
