Hi David,Ultimate Terrain and photo scenery like Megascenery are entirely different products.Megascenery is aerial photo textures layered on the mesh (elevation) to give you are real world scenery. These are by locations. Meaning. South California, Dallas Ft Worth, Phoenix are etc.Ultimate Terrain is not about textures. there is no photo scenery. It enhances the default details of the coast line, rivers, lakes and other water bodies. You would see more lakes than the default flight sim. You would see more contours to the rivers. You would also see more streets and roads. Thats the meat and potatoes of UT. They also provide with some alternate default runway textures and street lights, alternate runway default lights etc. Its usually for a large area. UT for the entire US or Canada or Europe.MannyI think, we need a sticky post explaining these things for everyone.
