    Just like to let any FS2004 simmers around here know, I've found a few incredible addons which really improve the look of default FS2004. I'd go so far as to say that it now nearly looks as good as FB, not quite, but it's getting much closer.

    Anyway, first the FSGenesis meshes found here This is for the USA and improves the default terrain incredibly, the mountains and valleys, etc... are in mostly the right places and with much more detail.

    Second, Bill Lyons replacement textures. These make all the difference. Get them here

    AVSIM requires a registration, but the files are free to download, and the files I mentioned make FS2004 look incredible.

    HTH somebody,
    Chris

    Sure, here's a few of mine and a few of Bill Lyon's:


    Baron near Richmond, VA


    Rockies, near Aspen


    Blue Ridge Mountains, Summer


    Blue Ridge Mountains, Winter


    Airport


    Bush Scenery


    Grand Canyon


    Rural Area


    Spring scenery


    Small Town

    It really looks incredible while you're flying!

    HTH,
    Chris

    That does look pretty good. I wonder how FSX will look?
