I totally agree. There is no doubt, Vector with openLC should look little better by default because it uses amazing FTX Global BasePack textures, but UTX was based on commercial GIS data which I find much more accurate then OSM used in Vector. If you ask me, I would recommend buying FTX Global BasePack, good old UTX, install them and do manual texture replacement in terrain.cfg, to make them look both "FTX-like". It's possible, and totally worth the few hours of work. If it's legal I can post my tweaks for UTX Europe here.
