The one thing I want from X-plane at this time

Recommended Posts

I've been wanting to write this post for a while now and here goes:

 

I really just want one thing from X-plane at this time: one area of the world, it doesn't have to be huge, with the same level of detail as an Orbx region.

 

I want landmarks, airports, seasonal changes, the whole she-bang. I want to be able to immerse myself in a corner of the world that looks real. I don't care if it is Egypt, Australia or PNW, it just has to be real. To feel reel...

 

X-plane is my favorite sim. It does so many things right and there is a lot of nice payware planes, but we need that one piece of scenery to rock the X-world.

 

PS. Alpilotx's New Zealand scenery is very nice, but it lacks landmarks and airports.

 

Developers: consider yourself encouraged :-)

And, have tyou tried the TrueScenery offers?

 

With OSM + Autogem + Ortho and Mesh I believe we an easily outperform FSX with the products you mention, plus the fact that terrain around you will very plausiby influence some weather parameters in a way that is simply not possible to get so close to real in FSX... I know this is not the kind of stuff most look after, but for me I have even forget about the absence of seasonal textures in favor of the physic effects of landing / taking off from a contaminated RW...

 

Eye candy will increase with time, and much more 3pds will join this looong travel to the future! (must have been the red wine at lunch...)

Agreed:  airports, even with the current scenery add-ons, are still hideous.

I think JComm's suggestion is dead on, get the Findland OSM and photoscenery available at the truscenery website and then buy one or 3 of their airports and you have your flying environment.

 

I have a ton of Orbx stuff, and I think this is pretty comparable.

Good God, I haven't seen scenery that abhorrent since the toilets in a Hong Kong rugby stadium. Having said that, I am going to buy that Wilington Internation airport.

:biggrin:  I'm just having a little fun with the ol' ubiquitous internet hyperbole. I've seen some bad sceneries before, but I usually reserve words like "hideous" for stuff like... oh, I dunno... Linda Blair in The Exorcist.
