FTX Netherlands!

Recommended Posts

It's a small and flat country but since I live there this news from Orbx's John Venema got me excited anyway! Here is what he posted just now on the Orbx forum:

"Netherlands. Watch this space, announcement and preview shots soon. Completely new tech for an FTX region too."

This was in reply to a question which would be the next region Orbx will be releasing. Curious what that new tech is too!

"A major Australian airport" maybe Perth? (Not the one they've already made).

So your are coming from Nl, sure that orbx shall never have a mesh problem in your country. 😃

For simmers of other countries... good to know... Nl is a very flat country, the people have hard worked to gain their grounds on the see.

I like a lot sceneris of NL 2000, free sceneries well done.

greating, (en tot siens)

I am very curious what Orbx will come up with. The Netherlands is too small for a full region, you'd say... maybe that new tech will give us very detailed scenery? Or maybe it will be photoreal...? But anyway, after 'learning how to enjoy' the German regions I am very happy John posted as a reply to my disappointment with Orbx not doing Holland. Glad he changed his mind and I can't wait for the upcoming news!

Agree and have explored it up and down too. I like the fact that city-dwellers are never too far away from the tranquillity of the farmlands.

I know! He has Dutch roots indeed. That's why I asked him a few years ago already if he would make a region containing the Netherlands. But at that time he said there was good scenery already (NL2000). I am glad he changed his mind. Maybe it has to do with that new tech.

The first European to sight my country was a Dutchman, and was named after a region in the Netherlands. Just a bit of useless info :)

Well, ORBX have made Northern Ireland as a full region ... so why not The Netherlands?

Why not include Belgium and Luxemburg (BENELUX) Now that would make the region bigger. Lots of simmers also in those countries.

That's not what I meant, of course they can/should do The Netherlands.

Agreed. That would be a buy from me then. Netherlands only, probably not.

John has just a few minutes ago posted some first alpha shots, it will be photoreal with every building in. I guess it's time for me to fix up my garden...

https://orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/144036-ftx-eu-netherlands-photoreal-alpha-shots/

It's the best news concerning scenery in ages for me! This is going to be soooo cool! Photoreal, perfectly annotated buildings, 5 seasons even! Awesome!
