Fsxcenery?

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of getting some scenery from Fsxcenery via Simmarket.  How is the quality of these airports?  The pictures are hard to tell so I want to see what people think of it.  Thanks!

I have had a close look but not purchased. To me it looks very FSX-y. Not on the MSFS level. More like quick port overs. Still, will be nicer than some of the Asobo default airports in areas where the modders are not active.

I bought one of the sceneries for P3D about a year ago and it was not good.....it's freeware quality at best. They are very expensive when you look at one of their airports compared to something like the new DD KDCA which sells for only a couple extra dollars and is a fantastic addon.  I remember trying to contact the developer at FSXscenery about an issue I was having with the airport and never received a response.  That said, I have not tried any of their MSFS sceneries but have to assume they are just ported over and using the same bad textures. You could always buy just one of them and see how it is.  It is possible they have upped their quality since the P3D versions....unlikely...but possible...

Ok... I think I've made up my mind.  Thanks for saving me some cash!

They’re quite pricy for what they are and the speed at which they are released should be a bit of a warning sign.

I’ve seen some similar looking ones on the MSFS store from a company with a similar name, I think it’s MSFScenery or something like that, looks to be the same group.

My suggestion is to download a few sceneries yourself and you be the judge. I found these airports to be quite nice and considering their doing airports no one else is doing what did I have to loose.  Whatever can be said about them in previous sims I'll say they are doing a good job with the airports they've done for FS2020.  I'll go out on a limb and recommend these airports for the FS2020 platform outright.  This is one of those cases like Carenado where there's bad press but allot of what's been done is actually good.  I hated the PA28 at first but after a few patches and having it along with the Just Flight version they both have a place and both are nice in their own way just like in the real world.  GA planes even the same model have different characters in the real world.  In this case these are two generations of the same plane so having both is not like having the same plane.  If I went with what people said around here I'd never have a Carenado plane which would be a waist as they are the only game in town for great look GA aircraft now that houses like Eaglesoft are no longer around (their flight models aren't that bad and if so at first they get fixed is subsequent patches to make them decent).  So getting back to FSXScenery, their not that bad and in this case you would have to see for yourself...:ph34r:
