Just started flying FS and love it. Wishin for a couple of add on sceneries for Christmas. What terrain and sky programs should I start with? When you start adding is their a specific order that the programs need to be installed in?

Active Sky Advanced from HI-FI was my first add on and I am very happy with it. It is great to expreiance real weather. ASA is easy to use. I highly reccommend it.

Buy them in this order, you won't be dissapointed.
REX, UTX, GEX...
Hell, just look in my signature and that will give you a good idea on what you get.

Iv tried a lot of the add ons.
But those ones I come back to and use the most are REX and UT2.
REX = Real Environment Extream (now on Ver2). Replaces a lot of the stock scenery gfx, can build some wonderful flights and it pretty easy to use. I cant say I use the flight planner, or weather system part of it myself. I just use it to setup the GFX for the flights.
UT2 = Ultimate Traffic 2.
I tried a lot of the AI traffic systems. But this is the one I stuck with and purchased!. Easy to setup, easy to install (but install it after REX2...) and best of all, no messing about with BGLs. But, if you dont want a headache, turn the AI Traffic to 0% inside Flight Sim. UT2 does all the traffic management. It has a few little querks, but you get used to them, and the next SP release will take care of most of it.
Beyond that.. Its individual airports I belive.
I upgraded Tampa and Orlando. Im looking for upgrades to Gatwick, London, and Heathrow airports. Ill get more as I explore further.
Welcome to the hobby! Your in trouble now!!.
If you ever want any help. Drop me a line on my youtube channel and Ill see what I can do.

For environment, there's only one - REX. That's the way to go. So far too, they've given all their updates for free. The program's name is Real Environment Extreme. High Def Clouds, water, sky textures, the works - you will LOVE it, gauranteed!

I agree with the Rex recommendation. It is very nice :)
