City Scene Orlando (ORBX) Released !

Recommended Posts

Just installed the newest release from Orbx.  Outstanding improvement to default scenery.  With all the recent discussions about T2G KMCO problems, I was excited to check out the default KMCO airport with an ORBX simple upgrade.   Gotta say it really looks good and  now I'm glad I did not purchase the T2G edition.  For my purposes the ORBX version of KMCO is more than adequate. I give this purchase a HUGE THUMBS UP !👍

Would you mind sharing a screenshot of what the Orbx rendition of the Airport looks like?

I’d also be very interested in seeing your screen shots of the terminal and gates . I’ve just installed it and all I saw was a default block terminal building with no jetways so I wasn’t overly impressed,but judging by your positive reaction I think I might have done something wrong.

Whilst KMCO and KORL aren't as heavily detailed as a commercial airport add-on, they are included in order to provide the full Orlando experience without compromising performance and provide much more detail over the default airports.

I run FPS locked at 30, with settings that allow me to maintain those 30 FPS.  The ORBX City Scene Orlando has no effect on my locked 30 FPS. 😎

I’m a regular user of gate 85 and checked that out already, it’s just a default building, for some reason im not getting any jetways either.

Just for the record I’ve been following this on the orbx forum and was fully aware there wouldn’t be a commercial level airport included , and for the price I wouldn’t expect one,so not complaining at all, the CityScene is great,

However with this and the amount of other threads about T2G KMCO and trying to get it working in V4 I’d say there was a big demand for a decent KMCO for P3D.... please , please,Orbx😉

As I’ve said elsewhere if you also use X-plane the nimbus KMCO is absolutely outstanding.

Ok, it's an AFCAD then.

I will only buy this scenery when I also can get a hq airport which fits to the scenery. A modified airport file with PR background does not meet my standards. But admitted, the city scenery looks awesome.

Wow - not so much as a "lite" version of the airport, rather a "[something else]-ite" version. Shame. Been watching this since it was announced but will now "unwatch" unless Orbx come back with a proper rendition of KMCO.

Anyway, onwards.....

I agree with much of the sentiment here, there is not much motivation for me to buy a city scenery when there is not even 1 quality airport available in the area. I can appreciate that MCO is a big airport to do to payware quality and include in a package selling at the reasonable price point they have chosen, but they could have done another smaller airport, Sanford would have been great, for example. Without such an airport I have pretty much lost interest in this release.

I'm not sure why the disappointed folks expected a new KMCO from ORBX  and  the city of Orlando (beautifully done I might add) for $17 (US).  Large airports ALONE from any decent developer costs well over $20.  For this price point, I feel the scenery is excellent 🙂

It´s most probably the same case that with TrueEarth Netherlands. I bought it TE Netherlands for AFS2 and the included airports were so bad that I´ve never used that scenery again. I don´t even bought it for P3D.

IMHO the included airports in this type of products should be substantially better than the defaults, surely not as detailed as a stand-alone airport, but in all case, a lot better than the current offering.

Not an expectation - more an observation that it seems strange to cover an area such as Orlando when there is not a properly compatible airport scenery that complements it. Obviously Orbx's decision, but i just pointed my own personal rationale for no longer being interested in this project (in the hope that if enough others do, perhaps Orbx will invest in doing their own KMCO or will at least apply pressure on T2G to get theirs properly updated and in gear).

Even covering Cape Canaveral would have given us an airport to operate out of (and would have been fun to pretend to be a Space Shuttle pilot.... in a Cessna....)

The Orlando city scenes do indeed look very good though. I wish Nice would hurry up (for which I have a good payware version of LFMN ready and waiting).

Fair enough... I feel this project was targeting the GA crowd to give them something new to explore on the East Coast of US.  Unfortunately with MCO being a MAJOR airport destination, the airliner guys were hoping for a  nicely upgraded Class C for a small price and that didn't happen.  If T2G can update KMCO they should reap big rewards because of the renewed interest in this area.  I had not purchased their product because of the reviews, however I would definitely purchase any well done developer's rendition of KMCO and/or KORL 😊

I had to disable the residential buildings, the performance and loading times were AWFUL with it enabled.

Hmm its along time ago since we heard from Taxi2gate. Anyone know why..?

I have KMCO installed but admit i never used it. Maybe its possible with ORBX? Hopefully they will update it to p3dv4 standards soon. 

Apropro GSXL2. Is it possible to share a setup for a specific payware /default airport? I am not a tech Guy here and would love to have your work installed. 

Thanks Michael Moe

I'm seeing this too, longest loading time I can ever recall and stutters galore. As yet I've not tried disabling anything. Scenery looks great though...lol. 

Thanks,
