Nervous about buying FS9 Scenery.

Post by pontiusthepilot » 15 Jun 2016, 19:53

Hi All.

I hop this is the correct place to post this, but a the moment I user FSX Steam set to DX10, FSX Acceleration for add ons that are only compatible with DX9 and FS9 simply because some of the freeware for this old sim is so good.

I use ORBX scenery with my FSX installations but with FS9 I use a mix of freeware. As you can imagine, every loch in Scotland and many other places are at the wrong elevation.

I've always wondered whether there is any payware scenery that can replace this where the lake elevations have been corrected. But when I go online, I find that sample images showing lakes in mountainous areas are rare, which suggests to me that many scenery add on packages for FS9 have not fixed this problem.

Can anyone recommend a product that have it's lakes in the correct place?

Thanks.
Pontius.

Hi Pontius..

My FS9 is completely default (for a reason) so it has all the troubles you mention. You might want to look here for decent mesh that doesn't cost the earth..
