    Can it be used alongside orbx or do you have to disable orbx to use it?

    Its global textures which means it occupies the same space as Orbx Global. Its a global texture replacement and you can only have one or the other installed at the same time.

    Orbx has tweaked the terrain.cfg to add some of their own texture numbering categories to, in their view, provide most texture options.

    GEP3D sticks with the original planned texture numbering layout less chance of conflicts with other sceneries.

    You would need to uninstall Orbx Global in use this set. I have to say the new sets of GEP3D look quite good.

    If you have Orbx Regions or other local or special sceneries, they will still overlay these global textures.

    In regards to Orbx regions, this is from the GEP3D guide:

    "FTX 'regional' products, such as their Pacifc Northwest region, are not the FTX Global texture product (as discussed above by 1st fltsimguy). FTX regional products can remain and be used. GEP3D is completely safe to use with them however please set the mode or central interface switch for the FTX region product to "Default" before enabling the GEP3D region from the interface in Prepar3D. The GEP3D interface will automatically remind you of that step. After GEP3D textures are installed you may turn the mode switch back ON and use other addons of that nature in thei rregional locations without any issues from GEP3D."

    I have GEP3D World Edition which I purchased for $129 (now $89).  The textures for P3D look great.  For FSX, GEX replaced the default textures with optimized textures which meant better performance but not sure about the products for P3D.  I have very good FPS with it in P3Dv4.  I tried using the Orbx regional products but they corrupted my scenery.cfg so they have been removed until Orbx figures out a solution.  I would highly recommend also getting UTX 2 for P3D as this is the landclass product for GEX.  It does the exact same thing as Orbx Global.

    Academic.  That's the one I use even though I have P3Dv4 Professional installed.  I cannot find the GEP3D Professional version.  Doubt it exists.
