Phoenix, Xplane11 Ortho4XP Photoreal

Recommended Posts

Ortho4XP allows you to lay autogen over photoreal scenery in Xplane11, something that cannot be done in P3DV4.  I am on the fence about whether I like this, because the autogen tends to hide some of the photoscenery at altitude, not sure what I prefer, but I thought I would post.  The autogen overlay can be removed if I wish.

I think the overlay adds a lot to the immersion.

Thanks for looking and thanks for the feedback.  I played back a saved flight between Buckeye Airport and Falcon Field in Mesa and I did like the immersion over the photoreal better.

It took me some time to finally figure out how to overlay autogen on top of my photoreal scenery..  I read a thread in the scenery design forum (or some forum) that discussed the problem of not having autogen over photo scenery created with Ortho4XP.  Someone replied that you have to copy a folder and the files within it that Ortho4XP creates while compiling your photoscenery.  You place the folder in the Custom Scenery folder along with your photoreal scenery folder. and you have your autogen nicely overlayed over the photo scenery.  The folder is "yOrtho4XP_Overlays" which is created in your Ortho4XP folder structure as your photo scenery is generated elsewhere.

Nice PR.  Shows how immersive flat PR can be when you add 3D agn on top.
