Ruud Faber reports: Many Fscene users already adopted the new FScene4X replacement ground textures for Microsoft's Flight Simulator X (FSX). In our former press release of August 24 we explained not only why this is an interesting option but also about our continuous work on improving the flightsimmers' joy in using FScene4X for FSX.

Some repeats of former statements are in place here, thus giving new users some overview on what's going on:

1) FScene has reworked all the textures to make them better suited in FSX. Why? Because of the many changes in Microsoft's new flight simulator X, the use of previous FScene versions was very disappointing. Ugly "gaps" appeared in the terrain, due to many FSX textures not being replaced by FScene ones. Moreover the difference in color between FSX and FScene showed very prominently.

And after having released revised texture files for almost all world we reported the birth of the free Outskirts patches:

2) FScene announces a new pack of color-adapted textures which will enhance the pleasure of using world-wide FScene4X in FSX. This is why: When using FScene4X, we found the color mixing of cities vs. outskirts not quite satisfying. Especially in spring and summer. So we adapted the colors of several outskirt textures to fit the specific FScene gamma. By outskirts, we mean the urban rural fringe, also described as the "landscape interface between town and country".

Finally they today announced the Outskirts Patch for the present fall season. Get it for free. Land at and look for the free Outskirts Patches, you won't regret installing them.
