Photo real scenery - high definition for incredible views from inside and out of the aircraft. There's nothing like flying over the real ground! Realworld scenery takes you there!

This scenery product is also compatible with FSX steam and Prepar3D. This scenery includes winter textures - so you will see snow on the ground if your season in the simulator is set to winter months. Florida rarely gets much snowfall but it does happen and we want to make that a possibility for your simming experience. We do not include night lighting, but if you use FTX global, you can enable the night lighting feature of that program and you will have some limited lighting. All airports ARE fully lighted. There are several reasonably priced night lighting add-ons made specifically for photo-scenery night flying that will work flawlessly with realworld scenery.

Many photo-real scenery users only use the photo-real scenery while flying in the daytime, dusk and dawn. The quick and simple way to change between FTX Global (or FSX default) and realworld scenery is to: 1. create a new folder in the hard drive FSX is installed in, named "realworld scenery files" 2. open 2 windows explorer windows side by side - navigate to your "addon scenery/scenery" under FSX in one window, and have your new folder you just created open in the other window. 3. highlight all the "Area_Lp1....Bgl" files in /scenery and simply drag them to the new folder "realworld senery files" in the other window. This temporarilly removes the photosceney layer and allows the default FSX scenery or FTX Global to be seen.

Opinions

Most often you may not want to use realworld scenery if you're flying in completely pitch black dark and you're not on a flight plan, and "if" you have FTX Global installed. Kudos to the the Orbx team for great night lighting, but overall, But there is a realistic aspect to this... Most pilots flying at night are going to be on a flight plan - not looking out the windows, and don't need lit up farm fields to know where they are. Flying with realworld scenery at night will test your skills to their max without seeing anything on the ground, except lights from distant airports, to use for navigation. If you want a real challenge, and honestly _very realistic_ fly at night with our scenery! your navigation skills will improve from it!

Water Areas

Some things to note: FSX DOES NOT draw every river and lake as in reality. This is limiting in that we try to judge which lakes rivers, etc. will be seen as water and which ones won't. There are places where the terrain can be seen where there should be water. We try to judge which water areas to enable based on landing a float plane, and the length needed to do so. But as you will see, we try to be perfect in our selections but we are limited by the original parameters of FSX.

Note on FTX GLOBAL: We've noticed that FTX Global is even less detailed in drawing water areas that the original default scenery. We suggest that you disable FTX scenery if you have Realworld scenery installed in the same area to allow MORE FSX water to be seen. There are places where it will be quite noticeable. One aspect of this is that you will see an increase in FPS. Scenery in FSX is very open to different configurations, so we suggest you play with the settings and see what works best for you.

FACT: Realworld scenery beats everyone else out completely in daytime flying over beautiful terrain!

Framerates

It is a myth that photo-scenery slows framerates. The reality is exactly the opposite! Photo-scenery such as realworld scenery actually increases your framerates. With default/regular scenery and Orbx products, your processor has to compute the manipulation of enormous numbers of polygons thus slowing down framerates. With photoscenery, the processor is only computing the manipulation of a 2D bitmap which is far less processor intensive.

So while it might take a little longer to load your flight due to initial scenery loading, realworld scenery actually increases framerates compared with default flight simulator scenery when you are actually flying. The result is a much more fluid and smoother flying experience.

Compatibility

Realworld scenery is fully compatible with all other Flight Simulator Addons. If you are running other texture, scenery or terrain mesh products, such as FTX Global, realworld scenery will take precedence when you are in the area where realworld scenery exists. Other texture products will stop displaying at the realworld scenery boundary. We cannot guarantee perfect results with airports and runway/taxiway alignment simply because our scenery is what you will see in the real world but FSX has always had issues with the original alignment of some airports' runways and taxiways. These are not always perfectly placed where they should be. You can manually change any airport layout with a program/utility such as Airport Design Editor 165, a free download and easy to use with a little reading/ hands on experience. You can also fully customize you flight sim with airport add-ons from 3rd party developers, and the vast majority of these are going to be correctly aligned, and will look great in the sim.
