Megascenery Earth Florida v3 Thoughts

Recommended Posts

hmmm ... please keep me posted ... in the meantime I've requested more 4X states from MSE as I really love Utah and New Mexico.

Cheers, Rob.

I just finished testing RWS FL and it's awful. Stay away from that junk! What a waste of time and $10 bucks.

After much testing, I settled on MSE FL v3, RWS 3D FL v3 (no lights), and FL lighting package from name not allowed:

So, DJ you got all those scenery files from RWS FL loaded and it sucked? They all come as dropbox files with no install app. How did you get those flles into P3Dv4x if I may ask? I spent $15. 

So, RWS FL 3D is good, but not RWS FL (they say you need that or a 'similiar' photo package. So, that's the MSE FL that works I take it?

Thanks, Jeff

Why would you buy RWS FL when I said to stay away from it?

Anyway, here's what I did:

I download each section into the same folder, then there's a small file that downloads which extracts all the zipped files into a chosen folder. I created a folder called RSW Florida Photo, then a Scenery folder inside the folder. I extracted all the files into the scenery folder. In total about 130 GIG.

The user has do do that for all four sections. I tested the scenery and I found it abhorrent. The textures were nothing like the website. White patches all over the place, some red areas, and the coastlines look like oRBX vector.

I deleted it right away and stuck with MSE FL V3 with RWS FL 3D. The AG is abundant but there are trees on many lakes, shorelines, and the lighting has a performance hit.

I'd advice anyone interested in FL photo to wait until ORBX releases TE FL.

I bought it before I read your post. lol.  

Actually, the developer contacted me and I got them all downloaded and working in the sim. Actually, it looks pretty good on my rig. 

I downloaded ORBX Orlando as well. It's all good. 😉
