I am particularly interested as CYXX is home to me though I am agonising
over whether to get Justin's Genesis or just settle for the freeware by
Holger. Bit concerned re UT as I see already someone has had to issue a fix
at Avsim for the CYVR area.

Hi Canuck,

The marriage of FSG 38.2m Cordillera and Atlantic Canada terrain with F1
Ultimate Terrain is one made in heaven.

'nuff said!

Interesting! Here was me thinking they were mutually exclusive, thanks
Justin I hope to be investing in a Galaxy a/c soon.

I was going to send a MO on Monday for this product. Being that it is V1
maybe I'll wait.

BTW If you want to start a string, I have a FS forum for Canadian FSers
here. http://www.ve5jl.com

Check it out. There is nothing there for FS yet but maybe you'll be the
first.

Hi Canuck,

The confusion is understandable, but the "terrain" engine encompasses not
only the mesh, but also the roads, rivers, shorelines, coastlines,
railroads, utilities, and landclass--generally the terrain mesh AND anything
and everything that lies ON the terrain mesh.

So while the FSG Terrain mesh provides, well, the mesh, Ultimate Terrain
provides all those other things. While one can use the terrain mesh by
itself, and one can use Ultimate Terrain by itself, using both together
optimizes both in such a way that the whole is greater than the sum of their
parts.

.... there came a great "FSGenesis"
<justinHATESSPAM@fsgenesis.comNOSPAM> flying, and he bore tidings
beyond hope, crying:

there a flatten option too?

thanks!

guess the UT guys figured that FSG mesh quality can't be surpassed and
hence didn't include mesh in their product! :)

Hi Cole,

The major roads of UT are flattened. Country roads, dirt roads and such
don't.

AD and UT have similar roads where they share common coverage--in Alaska.
But since AD is free TIGER data (with the source data cost savings passed to
the customer), UT is made from more accurate and expensive commercial data.
But UT Canada has coverage throughout Canada, not just Alaska, and adds
shoreline, coastlines, lakes, rivers, etc., so a comparison of the two
products is like apples and oranges.

American Data Roads for Alaska and the US remains a low-cost roads
alternative. But UT Canada (with Alaska included) is more comprehensive,
more accurate--and, of course, more expensive.
