$40 just for Europe and also requires Global base and also "strongly" suggesting vector.  Just re-write the globe already, put a $300 price tag on it and get it over with.. This nickel and diming per region is tiring..

I think the price originally was $20, but it turned out to be a lot more work hence the 40 bucks price tag.

 

Your right though, gets very expensive indeed.

Some comparison shots with UTX Europe would be awesome.

But all these things are becoming just too expensive indeed. FTX Global already made a huge hole in my pockets...

I'm waiting for them to start selling addon sequels of their addons

 

"Orbx PNW for Orbx Global and Orbx Vector only!!"  No discount for previous PNW owners!! Pay us again!!

I have GEX & UTX, so I don't see the need to outlay a large amount of money. I would rather spend on addon airports and aircraft.

All of the Orbx costumers have fallen for the consumer trap. "Are new product requires this product" and such. FTX Global cost 100USD. Vector cost around 60usd. Look at both products. They cover the globe and that is good, are they accurate, not necessarily. Vector v1.0 had so many issues with the OSM data reported, if you go to Asia with FTX Global and Vector all you have are the main roads, no detailed urban road areas and building on hills pointing 60%. The only thing very accurate about Orbx are their regions. FTX Global textures are really good but they are just not accurate everywhere. So why should we play for a new product that just includes a bit more textures and auto-gen for an unfinished product that is supposedly the keystone of orbx and a not accurate enough vector data.

They need to prove why it's worth the ridiculous price they are asking.  Throughout the history of FSX landclass has come and gone.. From free, to very fairly priced per what it covered. ie: SceneryTech = $19 for Europe.

 

Orbx seems to have a "It's us, so just pay more" philosophy.  No doubt they are good at what they do but that doesn't mean they don't have to actually sell me first.. $40 landclass that only consists of Europe is insanity. Especially when it requires a $100 purchase first.

 

Get the heck out of here..

There will be no comparison to any other LC made the quality will far exceed anything done before it - ton of work went into this and thats why it is justified - its not some generic LC like all the others from what I have seen

 

By the way the file size is 9.5 gig - thats no ordinary LC also

And a description of it - seems like a very nice upgrade for the cost

 

  • Hand crafted landclass for 10 million sq km
  • Thousands of superb new textures
  • Greatly reduced texture repetition!
  • Full five seasons support
  • New 3D night lighting
  • Made for FTX Global and VECTOR
  • Four separate installers for convenience
  • Each geographic area feels unique
  • Stunning Mt Vesuvius photoreal
  • The first of seven Orbx "mega regions"
  • A whole new Europe to explore!

Ok but how do you know this? Orbx prey on people who follow the "Orbx made it so it must be good, shutup and take my wallet" philosophy.  

 

My wallet is right [=] here..

 

Why is Orbx landclass better than the tons of free, and other payware landclass.

 

Sell me.. 

 

And go...

Global  investment is starting to pay off. Just look at the new PNG screenshots from the simmers themselves, its beyond stunning! So they will keep expanding the new airport/Global idea and that's worth global alone and then you have free upgrades and now Landclass.

 

I don't have Global yet as I have all the regions but as a simmer for life it offers to much not to have it..
