    new GEX vs FTX Global

    Mike, check out this link, http://troppo1.mine.nu/ and here http://www.wideview.it/steve/ to find out my name is not nick. You really should try and read the whole thread before making silly assumptions..

    yes you were in a jet and covered a lot more ground than my little 172.. ok so we call it quits for the screenies, unless someone else wants to jump in??? Kaboki, I'll swap you sometime, you put GEX in and I will try Global, ok?

    now I didnt expect to hear that just from 1 shot, But""" I told ya So""" comes to mind. It is a different sim with GEX and the granite faces are amazing, but there seems to be not much more different, except maybe less tree's than global and maybe framerates. I have really noticed a better fps with GEX desert looks good, bit more hilly. Where is all the green that people were talking about?

    Rob I have no idea about DX10 and no-one answered you, but while I was researching I found this: " GEX is fully DX10 compatible and they even tweaked the texture lum and colors to really SHINE in DX10 mode,.". being an Old fogey I have absolutley no idea what it means. The others will jump in and tell me hopefully. Without Michael to ring and ask stupid questions I am a bit lost, but I gather lum is short for lumenis? and therefore something to do with lights? I have done a bit of night flying and the lighting seems to be great on fps and on eye candy,,,but I prefer to see the Granite faces Before I feel them and so stay mostly day and dusk time. Speaking of which I just found GEX FB pages and you can really see the granite I was talking about. https://www.facebook.com/GroundEnvironmentX https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1398435630369660.1073741835.1398373353709221&type=1 now to see if my screenies compare. Kaboki.. I am the opposite, I have to run unlimited or 99 or I get bluuries, also I need to keep at least 1000ft above ground level on a fast flight to allow the textures to load. say we use the new 172 and forget framerates, just check out mountain, valley and ground?

    Kaboki. Before we start putting screenies up we need to establish some parameters. Different settings, sliders, Jpg, same plane? that kind of thing, other wise we are comparing apples to oranges. My poor pld pc is running a 27in monitor as main and a 15in for the MFD, a 10in for the PFD and a 7in U-Propit, then she runs 2 other pcs in network to run flightsim commander, skype, TS and PlanG3 on 1 and Widgets map and internet on the other. quick foto made with phone: now in Orbx my sliders are Autogen Normal and Scenery Complexity to Extremely Dense. In GEX I run AG Extremely Dense and scenery at Dense. So I will be seeing a hell of a lot more on the ground in GEX than I would be in Orbx. My sim settings while taking Screens: If we go to innsbrugg LOWI and fly to a spot, take a screeny, convert to jpg and post with pos, framerates and what the time and season, day and so on is, do you think that would work?

    And I forgot SNOWMOBILES, you lucky lucky bast..rd ""3, NORTHEN LIGHTS, lucky bugger Yeah, the Northern light is nice, but I seen it so many times so it's not that special""" True, just like the great barrier reef and the whitsundy islands were when I lived in Aus, seeing whales and dolphins every day gets a bit ho hum, but the lights!!! ....not sure about that. night, back tomorrow.

    Robains, I hve had the same sim since god know when, I have flown a lot and have travelled a lot. Before and after I travel I fly it on my pc, But with only default GEX, UTX REX it wasnt that great. Now with the new GEX, it is something else, not real life but hell, after going to a place with only deafult scenery and old GEX to going to that same place with the new GEX it is a 100% improvment,, I am going to go revisit all those places again to see what it looks like now with the new textures( if the misses doesnt divorce me from spending too much time locked in my flightsim room) I have been flying since FS5 in 98???? too old to find a new wife... """Well i don't know how lucky I am, I live in the far North and it's a very cold climate, and the winters are rough and dark 24/7, I actually wish I lived in Spain A few weeks from now the sun will dissapear and I won't see it again until the end of Januari.."""" Advantages: 1. more hrs inside to sim 2, no sunlight to reflect on the monitor 3, NORTHEN LIGHTS, lucky bugger Disadvantages: 1, spain is bloody hot....

    "" All these addons works flawlessly with each other"" As stated above, my old E6600 dualcore running at 4,2ghz is very sensitive and finicky, So I envy you even if I dont totally believe you, I know my setup is old and outdated so I have to accept your word.
