Orbx True Earth for P3Dv4

Recommended Posts

As this topic doesn't relate to support for the product but rather as a new development for P3Dv4, I have posted here.

This seems to be the XP Ortho scenery for P3D.  It looks super amazing, and I cannot wait until more regions get rolled out.

more pauses (and longer pauses) will appear when flying, adding so much detail and scenery would come with a cost, i know it has not been tested yet, but with eu openlc, vector germany north and south plus all our eyecandy airport scenery-just my 5 cents

Hi Simbol

Not sure if the rules allow me to post links to other news websites, but if you go to FSElite, there is a write-up about it.

It looks totally awesome. I am lost for words. And it will only cost €34,- which is incredible if you compare that with the prices of their addon airports! It is a must buy. A no brainer. 

I do also have my worries when it comes to performance though... but I will also buy the Aerofly FS 2 version so I can fly above all that detail without having to worry about performance. :happy: I will probably only buy the P3D version because it will be released sooner and I just can't wait for it!!! (The XP release will be first btw...)

This will look really good in my X-Plane 11. Especially since XP is smoother and the night lighting will be much better. I'm hoping that these regions don't eat up too much drive space. Thankfully SSDs are much more affordable.

No it won't! Reread John V's statement... He clearly states Netherlands True Earth will be released first for P3D and FSX. England True Earth however will be released for XP11 first and later on for P3D/FSX.

XP first? I doubt it..

Edit: the guy already said the same, C'mon Vic, read further than your nose is long!

Anyway, yeah, for that price, it is ridicule how nice and epic it will look! Can't wait til really really fly overr my house.

 

I wonder how "old" the satellite images are? Does anyone know?

I was a bit puzzled about this remark: "85,000km2 of photoreal terrain at 1m resolution"

Unless we have conquered recently parts of Germany and/or Belgium, this claim may be a bit optimistic...
The Netherlands has a surface of only 41.000km2. 
Or does Orbx includes 2 seasons?

Yeah, ORBX always forgets to mention this bit of important info. I find it odd that HD space is not mentioned in their product pages.

Hi,

why would you need vector and FTX regions when you have True Earth? Any way, that look phenomenal! Are these screenshots made in P3D? I think so, and I don't use XP but am curious how it looks there, have they published any screenshot from that sim? I really hoped that they could change the lighting in P3D, but that seems not too easy.

Yes, my bad, I read too quickly in order to get to the screenshots. :happy:

This seems to be the scenery that I have been waiting for all my life. Complete high quality photoreal coverage of the UK and Ireland, with realistic 3D landmarks, buildings and trees. Oh, and since I like to fly to FlyTampa Amsterdam Schiphol, TrueEarth Netherlands is a very nice bonus! :smile:

In the hope the two will play well together -  which wasn't confirmed so far.

Kind regards, Michael

Same here. If I recall correctly I was just 2 years old when I started to wait...

What about you? :laugh:

You won't disable vector and global, it will just be in higher priority and be called first.

XP will not have seasons....yet.

Musings......

It glorified XP ortho and OSM etc.

Like the fixed up airports though.

I have old FSX, now P3DV4, XP11...and find that with all these sims things are piece meal. With P3D I have some of the world Global, some in texture Regions, some in photo detail...its starting to become a hodge podge of stuff and its very hard on my OS.  I have terabytes of data.

And now lets add the photo areas, a bit here a bit there, more money $50 at a time. $100 here and $100 there. I said  it once before here...if you could offer me a fully loaded, fully functioning sim, seasons, high level planes, suites of completed airports, super high quality scenery I would spend my $1,000 outright, maybe up to $1,500 and get it over with.

My two year old PC is once again struggling and it cost me $2,700. Now what!

I'm starting to wonder what I'm doing. Of course the scenery looks good but I can blow over NLD in a few seconds and its boring flat as a pancake. Obviously if you are from there, live there it would be great to have "your" area covered. Maybe a Christmas sale? Maybe in a few years?

Have they said if they will be doing the US?

PNW is next. For starters.

PNW was confirmed several times (whatever that's worth). As always, further projects will most probably depend on sales of the initial ones.

Well, don't buy all that then and don't install everything you've got. :happy: When it comes to P3D I haven't bought an airport addon in years: I only buy FTX regions I am interested in. And I think I buy one plane a year or so, if I really want it. I have TONS of addons which I acquired during the last decade but most of them are backupped on archive disks. My list of installed addons is very short (for someone who has been simming for decades) and my PC is clean and organized. I only have to 500 GB SSD's but still there is 600 GB free! (And that's with Aerofly FS 2 fully installed too!)

It's all a matter of choice and self control. :happy:

Now what? Lower your settings and expectations. :cool: My PC is almost 4 years old. I did buy a 1080 though over a year ago. But it's doing just fine. As long as I don't drag all sliders right. And even then things can become sluggish but I don't really care. My Q400 is totally awesome, the view outside is great, and that's all I want. Again, it's a matter of choice and self control.
