"Ground Environment X" Released

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble finding what makes these textures better. I installed it and had to reinstall the default textures and take screenshots to compare them. Not really the jaw dropping change I was hoping for. So far, the textures aren't really better, just different I guess.

>Turn off the encasement option in Ultimate Terrain X. That>will solve this issue.>>Anthony is looking at this now and will have an update>hopefully shortly.This is happening because of the color selection that UT used for Fall/early winter encasements. It is a bit odd that they would have chosen this color....but an alternative solution may be to reduce the encasement to 20 meters +/-, which still allows the freeways to be seen a bit better than totally blending with the scenery texture. I just tested mine at 20m and here is the result:http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/180907.jpgNot too bad if you ask me, and it can be increased again with seasonal changes and more appropriate color matches.

I use FS Genesis, Cloud 9, and UTX. Now I want GEX. I see that UTX is OK with GEX, but what about Cloud 9 products? Should I delete them or keep them?Stan

Cloud 9 is a landclass product, it will work fine with GEX. GEX is just textures, the landclass tells it which textures to place where.Jim

Thanks Steve.I think one problem with GEX is that it actually takes a bit of time to find the sweet spot, as opposed to your other programs like FEX, GE Pro, and EE that gave an immediate "WOW!" factor the moment you saw them on the screen.I look forward to finding more of the GEX sweet spots, and to seeing more texture sets being released.

I solved my blurries by changing 'FSAA to 4X' and 'AF to 8X' in my nVidia control panel, and clamp to 'use hardware'. In FSX settings 'AA is checked' and 'trilinear' selected.Currently using 7950GX2 with 169.94 driver release.The 158.27 release is just as good.
