Yeah, I'm guessing some of these folks have never enjoyed flying from Cordoba to La Rioja or from Mendoza over the hills to Santiago. Too bad for them.

I've been waiting for this for awhile.  South America is gorgeous, and I am happy to finally get to explore it.

I'd rather see Asia.  More going on over there.

It also has some very challenging approaches.

Really puzzling how long it's taking for the airports to surface. However, the other day it crossed my mind that maybe Orbx put OLC SA and Bilbao ahead of that project in order to generate some revenue, following a pretty sparse release schedule of late.

Now that's all out of the way let's hope we'll all be flying the best VFR airports in V4 very, very soon.

Luckily I'm so enamored with flying the NGX into previously OOM black hole areas that I've suddenly acquired uncharacteristic patience levels.

And, of course, the longer Orbx takes the nearer we're presumably getting to Flight 1 converting the 750 and 650. 

Well you can dream :-)

And as for the newest release, I don't have a single South American payware airport to fly in and out of. So I'm not in a mad rush for it.

I am very happy for all sim hobbyists from South American Countries as I feel they've been kind of left out and there haven't been much quality stuff for their regions.

Are there currently ANY South American airports for P3Dv4? Sao Paulo? Rio? Santiago? Buenos Aires? Would love to fly down there but want to see some good airports to head to after 8+ hour flight!

The tropicalsim guys said they can install into v4 (and work) just fine. They have Buenos Aires, Rio and Sao Paulo (among others).  And these are pretty new, having been updated/released last year the first two and 2015 the other  

LatinVFR has one in bolivia that was updated to v4 recently, and the sadly for the rest I don't think there is anything... (well there is, but not v4 compatible and most even just FSX, like Santiago, Montevideo, Caracas, Asuncion, etc..) 

oh also SABE (the one in Buenos Aires city proper, close to downtown) was added a while back by ORBX to their freeware pack.

Excuse me! I have on occasion taken my Aerosoft Glider DiscusX Down to Santiago for some mountain flying. And right after the next ORBX sale I guess I'll be enjoying it even more! :laugh:

This can be used with GEX P3Dv4, right, just landclass? I don't use any FTX stuff, so not really familiar with this particular product, have always liked GEX/ UTX stuff though. I am using Scenery Tech SA now and it is kind of lacking, not to mention old. There are large areas of flat brown textures crossing Cusco to Lima, for example, at least in P3Dv3. Haven't been there in v4 yet.

No OpenLC products require ORBX Global textures since some of the landclass calls for non standard textures. 

If you're using GEX you'll need to use Scenery Tech or other landclass products that call only default named textures.

I really hope openLC Asia will be next. It was suppose to be come before South America and I'm not sure why it was switched. Asia is severely lacking in attention and really needs more focus.

I just got it installed.  I'll have to set up a flight with the PMDG DC6 and do some freight deliveries to some little towns in South America, and see what it  looks like.

I'm happy for our fellow flight simmers in South America! For me however, I'd like some good airports to fly to as well. I think most simmers are in US and EU, thus the concentration of good airports are there. I'd like to fly in South America! I'd like to fly in Africa! I'd like to fly in Asia (sim some 747D on domestic Japanese routes!)! The quality of scenery just isn't there.

 

Forgive my first world problems... :biggrin:
