• Flight1 - Ground Environment X World Edition Now Available

    Buy Here

    Now available at the FS Pilot Shop from Flight1 is Ground Environment X World Edition. Available are four separate parts:

    Ground Environment X builds on the award winning techniques of the GEX series and continues using our new approach in texture design, incorporating high level detail graphics in the default Flight Simulator X 1-meter texture resolution format. This delivers a hi-fidelity image without using excessive disk space or processor power. Our design allows a simulation pilot to enjoy clearly defined visuals from nearly ground level up to higher altitudes.

    Ground Environment X brings all-new ground textures to FSX, and it boasts an incredible 1 m/pixel texture resolution, using native 1024x1024 pixel images, and includes all seasons, meticulously designed night textures and the latest techniques in autogen placement and alignment. All this while keeping maximum Flight Simulator performance in mind during development.

    The easy-to-use interface will provide for easy installing the new textures, and is designed with Flight1's "keep-it-simple yet powerful" philosophy.

    Whether you are flying over the savannas of Africa or the oasis-dotted desert sands of the Middle East, the entire area will now come to life with brighter colors, unique autogen, and so much more.

      You still have to buy each area individually.

      Maybe I am thick as two short planks but I read this and figured it might be one large pack at a mildly discounted price compared to buying each area on its own.

      So what's actually new here? Don't get it.

      It's actually pretty simple:

      Environment X World Edition

      What is new is that Flight1 is now allowing resellers to carry this product whereas previously you had to buy it direct from them. You'll find that changes in availability like this quite often result in a news item being published.

      South of Central America.

      If you mean the GEX package, then it is part of the Asia package.

      Here is the first sentence: "Now available at the FS Pilot Shop from Flight1 is Ground Environment X World Edition. Available are four separate parts:"

      Not sure how "four separate parts" can be made any clearer.

      Maybe not quite false advertising by flightsim.com but still, why would Flight1 call it "World Edition" if it is not....really. I am sorry but 4 separate downloads is not a world edition, and while it may stand up in court, they know it just plain misleading.

      I am very disappointed. I had in fact been waiting sometime for Flight1 to release a truly global GEX for FSX. Reading the text seems like this would have been a good buy, if it was all in one pack. Separate downloads I don't mind, paying four times....I do mind.

      Hardly "Worldwide". They don't cover Australia or Antarctica yet.
