Blown away....wow...

Recommended Posts

...have never seen the like in a flight simulator screen Dawn representation, before the addition of the full Orbx North America OpenLC

 

Just north of Detroit, Michigan

 

wow and wow....

 

P3D v3.2.3 with Orbx Vector 1.40

(I have unchecked all my UTX scenery files, and am now running with the 'total Orbx layer solution'.)

Looks great Mitch!  If you get time, can you post some shots of Las Vegas and Phoenix?

Sure...will do that tonight for you, as I will have time to explore.

 

I just installed Vector 1.40 into my P3D v3.2.3 setup...and man...has it matured, from when I had left off with it, around v1.20

 

The night scene is a mind blower, now!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As much as I like the Ultimate Terrain family of products, and up until today, have used them exclusively,  it is without doubt that you need Orbx Vector 1.40, to bring out the best and most believable real-world depiction with the new North America OpenLC product.

 

The roads are 'amongst' the landscape, as in the real world.  Unfortunately, UTX very much 'sits' upon the new Open LC.

 

It is now, in my opinion, Vector 1.40 all the way....it looks so good with the N.A. OpenLC product.  Seamless...and perfectly blended.

Pics are great, Mitch :smile:

 

Like you, I left Vector for UTX when they released the P3D compatible version.  Guess I need to give Vector another chance to impress.  Your pics certainly have impressed ....

Looks nice. Would be great to see side by side comparisons with Ultimate Terrains offerings.

Great shots!  I am also finding FTXG and OpenLC has given my sim (P3Dv3) quite an overhaul. I'm in a similar boat with UTX.....love it but may try going back to Vector again.  I did get it when it came out but unsinstalled it due to stuttering issues, etc.  I also think UTX isn't blending very well at the moment...and no need for the UTX night lights any longer!

I just downloaded version 1.4 from the ORBX product page...

 

Edit:  Although they may be just an update if you have previous...?

Appears you get FTX Vector 1.30 from your account at FSS and get the update to 1.40 from here https://www.fullterrain.com/support

Mitch,

Can you please advise the water textures you have chosen for this set of pics ? They have the proper shades and colors I seek. :smile:

Nice shots Mitch - think I will revisit Vector didnt realize its been update to 1.4 - thanks for link

 

Mitch your autogen settings appear to be cranked up ? right this new LC has a lot more AG - scared to turn I up now lol

 

Wondering if you get the time can you post some beach ( coast line pics) want to see what the beaches look like as I am really missing that right now - thank you

=================================================

 

Just a heads up for installing vector - the 1.35 has to be done before 1.40 or it will not work as stated in Orbx forums

 

First install vector 1.30

Second install vector 1.35 update

Third install 1.40 update.

Where do you get Vector 1.4? My update at the FlightSimStore only has 1.3

 

Here you go - you need both as I stated

Welcome Buddy - guess we should revisit but not that confident about it - not a big deal but found Orbx way of uninstalling would not work for me - could not get the scenery library to clear out take and a the scenery cfg file gets touched which reminds me to save a copy of it this time  :)  take care Vin

Tried the newer 1.40 Vector and it seems ok so keeping live for now. I hadn't used it for a long time but it does work well, for me, with the new NA software. I will say the new NA stuff really is an amazing scenery addon.

Yes get a few less fps in large city areas with Vector and NA but that is too be expected. I do have all the scenery object autogen sliders maxed so that contributes to the slight slowdown but sure is worth if for the eye candy.

Looks amazing! I'm blown away by openLC North America, and can't wait for openLC Asia! It really transforms the land and makes it much more alive. Night lighting is much improved as well. Looks liek the FTX all in one solution is the best for me now! Although I'm still on Vector 1.30, and wasn't aware of 1.40. Is there really that big of a difference going from 1.30 to 1.40?

Only downside is the sharp drop in autogen that you get with P3D v3.

Pictures from the Florida keys with and without NC LA would be very much appreciated. It's an area I know a bit like California but for the latter I have NoCal and SoCal. I tried LC Europe before and unless the NA version is way better I wonder if it's really as accurate as described by some. For example, the Europe LC has so many blatant errors in Germany that I wouldn't call it accurate. Maybe it was easier to achieve such accuracy in a less densely populated area. Thanks to everyone who helps the undecided to make the choice.

All your bullet points, are mine as well.

 

Vector 1.40 is PART of the unfolding scenery, but UTX with the new textures, etc...looks like it is pasted on the scene.  Of course, that is my personal opinion, but it is that very opinion that had me revisit Vector...and found the latest version gold, when used with the other Orbx 'layers'...for creating the total scene output.  I'm sticking with it...and loving the result.

Nice shots Mitch - think I will revisit Vector didnt realize its been update to 1.4 - thanks for link
