This looks pretty good, and the price is reasonable too (US$25):

I love this sort of stuff, because it looks incredible from a few thousand
feet up, but when you get back down on the grond we're confronted with that
puke-ugly ground texture. That has to be the ultimate anti-climax!

No worse than the rest of FS9. Are you thinking of satellite scenery?
That does get gritty when you get up close.

No, I was thinking of the default ground textures.
I don't think I've ever seen satellite scenery in the sim....or have I?
MS didn't use it in FS9, did they?

Add-on scenery is, very often, just pasted on top of the default ground
textures. The NZ scenery is an example of that.

I've never put it to the test, but installing Justin's ground mesh first
and then adding scenery on top of that might look a lot better, but I can't
imagine it being framerate friendly.
