I was looking around for good scenary for FSX and I came up on this forum where some guy was mentioning good scenary for FSX and he said this,

"Ground Environment X, and Ultimate Terrain X are great
add-ons for FSX. Both work together

Real Environment X produces outstanding Sky, Clouds, Water and
Runway textures that look real.

There's a very, very small frame rate hit even with all 3 installed.

He said that GEX, and UTX work together but what's the point of buying both of them if they're the same thing? Wouldn't it be useless to buy GEX and UTX if they're the same thing? Do both of these Terrain products work together to make the scenary EVEN better? Or are they just rival products? If they don't combine to make amazing sceneray and one or the other is better. Which one of these terrain products is better? (USA TERRAIN)

Alot of info and opinions you read in forums regarding payware products is good - some of it is simply inane.

Your best bet is to visit the individual sites of the respective products to get at least an overview of these add-ons.

The bottom line - it's best to research each product separately on your own before you buy.

I already did my own reasearch but my question is if GTX and UTX work together. If not, which one is better.

GEX and UTX are fully compatible. Which one is better? This is like asking which one is better, the F-18 or a Ferrari? They are different babies and can not be compared.

If the product descriptions on the Flight1 site are unclear or confusing, use Google and discover the difference between 'Environment' and 'Terrain' in flight simulator terms. Read Idea

Would it be a + to buy them both? Like will it add even more scenary than just one of them?

Strictly speaking neither GEX nor UTX is about 'scenery' in flight simulator terms.

GEX is about Ground Environment.
UTX is about Terrain.

Hence my previous suggestion.

Since there are no compatibility issues, to run both programs would obviously enhance the sim more compared to running only one.

Yeah, by scenery I meant Ground environment and stuff. I guess i'll buy them both then, thankyou. 😀
