Poor FSX ground detail

Is there an addon or a way to get higher resolution and detail on ground scenery? I currently just fly around Las Vegas while I get used to using FSX. The strip hotels look GREAT! However, once I leave the strip area the neighborhoods (houses etc.) look pretty flat, and most of the vegetation looks like dirt. Looks like a tornado went through and destroyed everything. I noticed the same thing when flying around other cities as well.

Btw, im using a GTX 1070 GPU and pretty sure my settings are set to max.

Thanks Smile

It's a combination of poor Microsoft scenery (desert around Las Vegas) and possibly a video card that isn't "strong" enough to render the autogen.
Get some add-on scenery and take a look at the age of your card.

Thanks, RadarMan! My video card is brand new and one of the latest GTX cards available. I'll try to find some add-on scenery.

Thanks again!

Let us know how it works out.
We have quite a bit of download scenery-free.
We also have scenery packages on https://www.simshack.net/categories/fsx-scenery-47
