Hi Nils,I think that no one can really compare them yet as there is no exe file included in Aim

David,thanks for the explanation. With 7zip, it was possible for me, to unzip the first archive (*.001), which contains the installer.As you wrote, WWW improves the whole world and is a really good basis. A big thank to Aim

To be honest, I've never felt comfortable with the GEX Grand Canyon. It just looks like a big truck came along and dumped sand over the whole thing. In those shots the WWW version looks way better IMHO.

I just ran part 1 exe and it installed into flight simulator x.Should I have installed to sceneryworldtexture?I don't see the files anywhere in the main fsx directory but it didn't ask about overwriting files either.Thanks,Ron

@ fsxmissionguy:It seems to me, that those "sandy" layers on the slopes over the rocky walls are more in place than Aim

Just check-flown in some other areas. As I was supposing, there are now huge areas of quite flat land on the mountain foothills (for inctance at the upper end of the Columbia River Gorge) covered with bare rock (that has too dark shadows btw.) - surely not what we want.Good to have backups!Cheers

But make a backup copy of your worldtextures folder, only to be on the safe side in case you don't like them in every region.

Those are beautiful shots and although the effort to make such a great improvement is appreciated, the basic mixed-up flaw that Iceland is actually shown as being green, while Greenland is shown as being covered with Ice, makes using FSX a show-stopper for me. This issue first showed itself when the MSFS series stepped outside the boundaries of Chicago, San Francisco, New York and Seattle and incorporated worldwide scenery, yet still has not been corrected in lo these many years. Maybe in FS11 this point of confusion can finally be addressed by the ACES team.;)
