Hello,
 
Can anyone tell me what is the difference between Ground Environment X North America and Ultimate Terrain Canada? GEX North America covers Canada and the US, so why is there UT Canada? Is UT Canada more accurate or has more things added?

You are in the wrong forum
 
However,  UTX is landclass, GEX is textures.. they each have a completely different function in FSX
 
GEX is the skin you see, UTX is what tells the sim where to place the skin and also adds features like roads, shores, rivers, streams, industrial and metro city landclass so the textures GEX provides are placed better

Thank you nick. Installed all 6 of the Scenery Tech Land Class and FEX.

Doesn't Scenery Tech land Class where to place the skins for roads and etc.. been pretty confused on this.

If you install UTX Land Class with GEX do you need Scenery Tech Land Class?

Do I need to uninstall Scenery Tech Land Class prior to installing GEX and UTX?

Lets say you have UTX USA and SceneryTech North America.

In the USA UTX will tell GEX where to place the texture tiles.  Everywhere else in North America Scenery Tech will tell GEX where to place the texture tiles.

Read this thread from Nick regarding landclass.  It also tells you where to place SceneryTech in relation to UTX.
