Crazy questions? Need help deciding.

Recommended Posts

Its been a while since I have did a post. I love sims (flight, farming). I got FS20 on gamepass to try it out. The graphics are very good but the UI and a few other things I do dis-like. So I loaded up P3d after flying in FS20 for a couple of  days. The graphics don't look as color full as FS20. With FS20 costing $119 dollars, is it worth maybe trying to get a scenery addon for p3d instead of but fs20? If so is there anything that covers most of the world?

As of right  now I'm running 1080p. I hope to upgrade to 1440 or 4k later this year. Noth sims run very smooth on my PC. Thanks.

Well the obvious choice would be Orbx Global if you're looking for some type of global scenery add-on which would replace the std landclass textures.

That together with a Region add-on from Orbx would be your best option.


Maybe there are some other global ortho imagery products out there but I dont have too much experience with those.

One of the others that comes to mind is UTX but these are more regional/content  products and I am not sure if this is P3Dv5 compatible .
