Thank you all for the comments ! :smile:
You're right. With the default scenery in X-Plane 10, I could already recognize my small village in France, with all the streets, railways, forests, rivers, lakes, and power lines. I never had this quality by default in other flight simulators except in newer versions of FlightGear.
With the HD mesh by AlpilotX it became even better with more details and newer data from OpenStreetMap. It's donation-ware, but you can also download the files for free. Since X-Plane 9, I already had very good add-on sceneries thanks to great free tools like XPOSM and OSM2XP bringing you the roads and buildings at their real places. Since last year with World2XPlane it's even more than awesome. I'm now always using photo sceneries + World2XPlane files for all the places I know, and where I expect very realistic sceneries. For the rest of the world where I don't care about the precise position of every single house, for basic VFR or IFR, the default "plausible" scenery is very good.
Back to the topic... I hope the certification of the Epic E1000 will be a success:
I thought Austin had first a Cirrus SR-22, now he owns a Columbia 400. He's also building a Lancair Evolution.
