>FYI>Guys its not a PATCH but a full blown reinstall.>We are talking 1.6 gigs.>So give me, UUUmm I mean, you guys need to wait about another>hour before you can download it.:-badteeth Sorry guysWe updated and replaced every single texture in the GEX packageyes, this is a full blown release Enhanced textures to assist in rendering clearer visuals. Highly detailed crisp and clear aerial views (recommend 1500-2000ft and higher for absolute best results)Enhancements to produce simulated 3D depth in texture foliageNew winter textures which display vegetation within the snowNo more black and white snowy winters, full colors rendered even with snowBetter season blend so seasons such as fall fade into winter and blend naturallyFall leaves and colors fade into winter and remain as season progressesEnhanced color processing which upgrades all seasonsEnriched desert and flatland details, no more bland yellow deserts or flatlandsStructured texture layout to assist in covering all major landclass products, and, extra textures to fill in holes made by different landclass products.Completely redesigned night lighting environment(I also highly recommend UTX intersection lighting be enabled to enhance it further)Included UTX upgraded textures to work with GEX EnhancedLandclass is a very important factor!!.. please read about landclass and how to get the most out of FSX/GEX with them. http://www.simforums.com/forums/forum_posts.asp?TID=24965I modified the GEX textures at no request of compensation from Anthony or Flight1 for the US/CAN modifications. I did it because GEX is a cornerstone in MSFS addons and to help continue that legacy, and, most important to provide an upgraded FSX experience for the communityI hope everyone enjoys the changes.There is always room for improvement and of course nothing is perfect. As issues may arise we will review them and address them accordingly.

This update is great news... I was thrilled with this first class product when I installed it and immediately noticed substantially higher and much smoother framerates after their faultless GEX install... It's fine products like this that give me the assurance I need to purchase again...I'm really excited about combining GEX with the new upcoming killer-apps from Real Environment Xtreme...http://www.realenvironmentxtreme.com/cloud/index.html

Just a quick word of cautionthe add-ons PicNic and What a Wonderful World will most likely have an adverse affect on GEX Enhanced. We modified the grass so an add-on like PicNic is not needed and since it also change the texture of snow, roads, etc.. it will have a greater change on GEXAs for WWW, you are welcome to try it with GEX and I am not saying it is a bad freeware, but please DO back up your entire SceneryWorldTexture folder before using it with GEXnWinters were modified extensively and as such WWW will most likely destroy the new enhanced lookI have not tried it so i can not say how much damage it may cause.. it may be minimal but please realize the GEXn texture go FAR PAST a simple sharpening or contrast change and they give you color tone and some textures glare response based on sun position, time of day, weather, etc which WWW will not provide.Any texture replacement that covers a large area like a country and that does not use the GEXn enhancement process will change the scope of what GEXn provides and ruin the overall effectWe expect well designed and considered professional target area coverage products like FTX will work without issue and layer correctly with GEX.:)

Wellllll!!!I have procrastinated long enough and can't put it off any longer. I must have these contributions.I assume the new package in complete within itself and does not require any previous version installation plus updates.Anxious to see what so many respected posters have recommended for some time now, plus read the bit on landclass as I do have FSGenesis and Ultimate Terrain installed.Thanks guys:RTH

Nope, straight-forward typical Flight1 wrapper install. During install, let it backup your original textures and then select all the three optional installation checkboxes and it will copy over the new textures. Simple as pie...

I want to know if are getting the results you expect too because we will make changes to suit you guys.

>>We expect well designed and considered professional target>area coverage products like FTX will work without issue and>layer correctly with GEX.>>:)>Nick, FTX lives outside the FSX texture folders and does not need to be layered at a specific level in the scenery libraries at all, because it is completely self contained. You will only see our landclass, scenery, topo and textures within the limits of our custom regions. Once you leave an FTX region, you'll see default (or GEX) textures automatically mid-flight without needing any switchers or fiddling.

Hi JohnThat is what I meant by layering correctly. I was not being technically specific about how it worked, just stating it would not present any issues for either product. however I was not aware there would be no need for a scenery entry level in the library based on other add-ons installed as I have not had time to review info on the product lately. :)
