Looks like much more than that Trevor:

 

From their website:

 

  • Improved 3D lights that perform even better FPS and more denser Vector Lights
  • Increased 3D lights size by 40% for further view distance and greater brightness (eventually we will release a 3D lights tuning app V2)
  • Edited 3D lights annotation for many urban textures previously missing lighting
  • Added intersection vehicle red tail lights, red/green traffic lights, and neon lights in commercial areas
  • Edits to autogendescriptions.spb to add missing compatibility for some SCO Scotland objects and also missing veg at KWYS
  • New landclass for the USA SW region to eradicate the "green deserts" and also add in the indigenous red desert in that region
  • New landclass for parts of Africa where pine trees are being shown instead of native African trees
  • FTX Global Uninstaller (already released separately) - http://www.orbxsyste...al-uninstaller/

 

Patch can be found here at the bottom of the first post:

Amazingly fast turn-around given the fixes done!

 

And as always, ORBX does well by its customers -- they changed the Africa landclass because I think _one_ customer requested an improvement from there, after providing good info on what looked wrong.

 

That wasn't necessary but a Nice to Have, and they waited to release until they did it.

Holy Cow!  Arizona's Sonora Desert looks FANTASTIC...just coming to cruise from Tuscon to Chicago, in the 737....WOW!

 

Climbing out of Tuscon and viewing the desert scrub and sand colors was dead on, ORBX. Dead on...this rocks! The mountains surrounding the city looks like the real deal.

 

ORBX...again, KUDOS...it looks better than I can ever remember Arizona rendered in FSX!  Those that live in the South West should be just thrilled with this.....

Sorry, I'll let somebody else better at it, to upload pics...but I just came back here to state that if this is what ORBX can achieve (presently at FL210 headed to Chicago) with a patch...OMG!   I lived for many years in Phoenix and know the Sonora very well.  This is amazing....with FSXG 1.10 being driven by UTX...simply life-like. OMG!

 

ORBX...WHEN, WHEN,WHEN, and WHEN...are those OpenLC's coming?!?!?!?!?!?    I'm ready to buy every one of 'em at the price you floated around.....so....BRING 'EM ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Signed, 

 

One Ecstatic and Happy Customer.....or simply, Mitch, whatever you prefer....lol!

They certainly fixed the "green desert", but, the included North American landclass is pretty rough IMHO.  The entire town of Sedona, AZ is gone (not the airport), as are the red rocks there, and Flagstaff, AZ is now an ugly brown square.  Luckily deactivating their NA LC does not bring back the green desert for me, though Sedona's red rocks are still gone . . .

I haven't downloaded the patch yet. I just flew over Sedona(townsite) and it doesn't exist before the patch so that isn't an issue. But, Flagstaff is at 7200 feet and should still be green after the patch. I took a bunch of screenshots and will compare after I add the patch.

i guess it safe to assume this patch is not bugged...you all seem like legit customers...hehe

 

Will be anticipating an install when I get home today! Can't wait to fly over the Southwest deserts again!

I don't think they actually gave us a landclass upgrade. They could have changed the color rasters a bit.  I don't think they would have given us a N.A. LC free...

Not all of it...Oak Leaf Canyon to name a few, within city limits

From a legit customer....you should experience a little 'wow' factor as to the oringinal release.

 

I really like how the scrub bushes outside of Tuscon looks.  Very realistic.  I'm running the show with UTX for the region, so that probably will play into it for a lot of users. If you don't have a L.C. products, it might look rather scank.  I wouldn't know that, as i have always had UTX for all regions they sell, from the get-go.

I am running UTX also, so this should be interesting!

I think Sedona looks worse after the update. no difference to Flagstaff which is fine....Phoenix is a little less green but still way too many bloody Ponderosa Pines!..Grand canyon looks marginally better.

 

The old default FSX had more red around Sedona and the GCanyon areas.

 

Not feeling the "orbx excitement" with the update.   We will have to wait until for a complete NA landclass release to see any difference...maybe.....

 

It would sure be nice to see some Saguaro cactus around Phoenix instead of pine trees. 

 

I think ORBx has too many fanbois.

This is interesting. I didn't have the town before or after. I saw your shots on the Orbx forum and it's puzzling as to what is going on. Flagstaff doesn't change at all for me.

This photo was posted by JV last week when he first announced the patch was coming out.

 

Can anyone find the RED after they install the patch? I would like to know where it is supposed to be?
