    Posted: February-24-2008 at 1:45pm

Update 5 is now ready.  We are releasing it here first privately before we make it fully public. Read this information, as well as the extra downloading notes...

Ground Environment X - USA & Canada Update 5 (product version 1.05)

You must have verision 1.04 (the Enhanced version) of Ground Environment X - USA & Canada for this update to install. If you do not have that version, please click the Updates button in the GEX interface for more information on the update.

Please make sure the main Ground Environment X USA-Canada program is NOT running prior to installing this update.

After this update is installed, you may be prompted to rerun the backup process. All currently saved backup files will be skipped. Just the new files added will be backed up.

After you install the update, you must reinstall the textures through the program interface by pressing the "Install Selected Options" button.

This update includes all previous updates. The full list of updates is below:

Update 5 Information

All users of GEX Enhanced v1.04 are urged to install this update. This update includes fixes to the original GEXn release, and, includes a new set of texture masks which will greatly enhance the coverage area of urban environments by significantly reducing the effect of cut-off textures, and redefines urban environments so textures display more smoothly, and are much more uniform. It also prevents baseball and football fields from being cut in half.

All users of GEX Enhanced v1.04 and Ultimate Terrain X - USA/Canada are urged to install this update. The update corrects the UTX Custom Landclass Layer for both daytime and nighttime so it blends in seamlessly with GEX Enhanced. A completely enhanced industrial day and night environment has been developed so users of GEX Enhanced and UTX receive all the benefits of the GEXn texture process.

Additional Fixes

- Fixed too red/range colors on some tiles.

- Tweaked autogen building height on some tiles.

Download Information

Flight1 is testing a new content delivery system. This may make downloading to your location very fast. To download this update, click the link below. But if you can, please reply to this thread with the following info...

1. Your Location (City is all that is needed).
2. Top Download Rate (350 Kbs, 1.3Mbs for example).
3. Is this download fast for you compared to other downloads.

Reporting is not required, but it will help us with the distribution test.

Click Here to Download (202 MB)

Note: We will not update the check for updates feature until this is released officially. Also, note that you need to install any Ultimate Terrain X GEXn textures AFTER you use the Ultimate Terrain X interface if you make any changes to UTX.

The differences will be in Europe mostly, compared to downloading from the USA directly.

Some USA users would see a big benefit during peak periods.

I tried the download at work and its pretty slow for me.  I'm in SD. 

I was only getting 150KB/sec with a single connection, and I'm sitting right on our backbone.  With my download accelerator I'm getting about 1.3MB/sec.

For comparison I just pulled down a game demo from nvidia at 900KB/sec on a single connection, and 7MB/sec with the accelerator.

Ok I tried the downlaod again, this time from my home cable modem, and it was much faster.

I got 350KB/sec on a single connection, and 2.3MB/sec on the accelerator.  For comparison I pulled a game demo from nvidia at 450KB/sec single, and 2.5MB/sec accelerated.

Quote ........Also, note that you need to install any Ultimate Terrain X GEXn textures AFTER you use the Ultimate Terrain X interface if you make any changes to UTX.

 

Does this mean that any UTX change will require a reloading of GEX-UTX textures or, only specific changes?

Perhaps a clearification is in order?

No

Just an install of any UTX product

 

UTX interface changes do not overwrite textures they only switch elements of UTX on and off
