Maybe it's a reharshed of thousend done debate ormaybe I'm late to the party... but what are general people opinion between let's say Orbx Global & Vector for the entire world vs. UTX and GEX for the entire world ? 

I have been UTX/GEX user since the beginning and wanted to give Orbx a try. I used the opportunity of a clean FSX reinstall and headed for Orbx Vector and Global. So far the disappointment is huge. I see no equal comparaison between the two, so the choice for me would be a non-starter. (UTX/GEX)

Now add the Orbx Region to the mix. (I have all their north america serie) so far their files are corrupting local AFCAD (KSFO) so they have to be desactivated locally. OK not too much of a big deal) But so far I have the impression that the on screen value has nothing to do with their nice photoshoped advertisments pictures. But I still have to test more.

If their region product is OK, is there a way to still use UTX/GEX on top of that ? I assume the clash is between Orbx Vector against both UTX and GEX, so by uninstalling Orbx Verctor and Base, keeping their tregion product, and intsalling UTX and GEX would be OK ? 

If their region product is not that far superior than UTXGEX, than again it is a non-starter.

So let's hear about people choice I'm sure this is an issue almost every simmer has had to think about.
