Thanks Jim, I rather suspected that would be the answer.I'm mainly using FSX for exploring UK scenery and I have the Horizon VFR Photographic Scenery package covering England & Wales. But I'll take a look at Ultimate Terrain Europe too.-- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

Thanks Rodger, those look great. Reckon I may have to reach for my credit card again!BTW, will UT Europe work without conflict with my Horozon VFR Generation-X scenery for England & Wales? Or must I configure FSX so that the latter has priority when I'm flying in the UK?-- Terry, East Grinstead, UK

TerryYou can get photoreal scenery for this area from Francevfr. I use it in Fs9 but there's a patch for FSX, it's the FlightAlpes BasePack Nord you want. We had a couple of holidays in Les Contamines a few years back and also passed through on the Tour du Mont Blanc. The Francevfr scenery fits with Switzerland Professional, now out for FSX, and the free valle aosta est and west which you can find in the avsim library. Also if you look for maps2bgl in the library you can create your own photoreal scenery from Google Earth. John
