Hi guys,

 

Release announcement

 

Turbulent Designs is pleased to announce the immediate availability of our latest product, TerraFlora.

 

TerraFlora completely replaces the default autogen vegetation with incredibly lifelike, high-definition textures covering the entire planet. This will dramatically enrich your flight sim experience by giving you beautiful new environments while maintaining a consistent visual quality anywhere in the world.

 

TerraFlora is also optimised to run as efficiently as possible, giving you a smooth flight from deserts to farmland to temperate forests to rainforests and everywhere in between.

 

TerraFlora is now available exclusively from www.turbulentdesigns.co.uk

 

Cheers,

 

Greg - Turbulent

So am I. That's a key question as a lot of simmer may have Orbx Trees. What's the difference ? How's performance compared with Orbx Trees... etc...

Looks interesting... but... usually I'm not that cheap, but ... £24.99 is a bit steep for such an addon, to be honest... 
Well, at least I'll wait till I see some screenshots or videos of this product.

That's the primary question for me, and how it plays with ORBX sceneries in general and with specific implementation with their airports seasonably. 

They would have to significantly improve appearance and performance over ORBX trees. Here is hoping that is so, although I am already satisfied (so far) with what I have.

If Turbulent has created a significantly better product I hope they succeed to raise the bar.

Kind regards,

Thanks for the images. May be I am missing something but with all due respect to the developers, I dont see anything to justify neither the price or the attention this product gets?

Just bought this today and have to admit I like the enhancement effect. No issues with Orbx products nor other sceneries with Prepar V4.

What were you expecting? It's vegetation, a different kind, that looks nice.

When Turbulent this time call it "Terra Flora" they hopefully think about "Terra Urban" soon if it sells :)

ORBX announced more than a year ago that they were working on such a thing, but nothing so far. Low priority, I guess...

If Turbulent is able to jump ahead of Orbx on this, they could have a huge hit on their hands...

I think most of the textures look good so far and prefer most them over Orbx Trees HD. The files sizes are much bigger but I dont seem to have any negative FPS performance impact.

The only ones I really didn't like was the hard winter conifers. They didnt' blend very well with the Orbx Global textures. They seems way too "white" and stood out unnaturally.

I was a little surprised that I had to install SODE in order to just replace my static vegetation textures.

It's £19.99, for me converted to Australian is around $32. Damn that Aussie dollar 😣

Similar experience here.  Nice trees and no noticeable FPS hit so far.  My system is no hot rod setup but it seems to run the same with this add-on installed.  I didn't think to check out other seasons.  I will give that a go.  :biggrin:

Glad you mentioned this... I was headed off to buy but SODE holds me back for now.  I'll have to read alot of rave reviews before moving from HD Trees to these.

Thanks,

Greg

No it isn't! At the Terra Flora product page, it's listed as £24.99. It's equal in pricing as their KIDA Idaho Falls Regional Airport and MBS International Airport sceneries... which is why I think it's a bit steep...

FTX/ORBX trees are priced at 25.95 AUD - which is roughly £16...

Picked up from the Turbulent Forum:

"In order to see TerraFlora you need to untick the Dynamic Vegetation Autogen box under Options/Graphics/World within v4"

& they also recommended leaving Orbx HD trees installed if you have them.
