That's a lot of money to drop for an unknown product, unknown company.... the company name sums up how I fear many people might feel after dropping this sort of money on it.

I just visited their site, and with how little information they have on this product, I definitely would not take my chances on it, especially for the price they are asking. There are only a few pictures, no video, and the description does not convince me to buy. I hope they post more information on it.

Well someone is going to buy it and post videos and pictures of it, preferrably paired up with the likes of HD/UHD mesh and xEurope v2 etc. I do look forward to reviews of it, the potential for texture replacement in X-plane to be a game changer is there.

It's interesting, but as others have said there are not many screenshots and most of them are taken in low light, which shows X-Planes lighting and atmosphere more than the replacement textures. To justify the price, IMO they need to include seasonal textures too, but no mention of that. Also, they do not show any closeups of the improved autogen they list as a feature, so not much to go on. As Bunkers said, we will have to wait and see more screenshots and videos, from those willing to buy based on so little information, to really see if the improvements justify the price tag.

ORBX is developing the TrueEarth scenery which is photoreal with autogen.  The description for this product says it contains new terrain textures and autogen.

The upside with this is that it covers the whole world, unlike ORBX's TrueEarth where each release only covers a tiny part of the world.

Sounds more like Taburet to me. I stear away. 

I recommend to be patient and wait for shortfinal design or orbx releases.

That's the one I'm waiting for too. I'm not a fan of ortho-based scenery (even the Orbx stuff), so I like where this project is headed.

That's the one I mean, from Shortfinal Design aka mrX. And some will wait for Orbx.  

If those guys stand behind their product why not give us better screenshots instead of dropping their price?

Hmm, so they dropped the price. If it is a fantastic product then they're going the wrong way at promoting it. I see no side-by-side shots (or even high quality shots), the website is badly written and it's giving out very bad vibes. I hope they sort all this out and put some effort into the promotional material and I'm sure this will convince more to drop money for it.

Personally I don't feel like people should be 'rewarding' them by blindly buying their product, at least not until they tighten up that marketing, release the promised video or see some more in-depth previews from other sources. It has already set a bad precedent within the flight sim community, that has spawned a lot of mediocre, overpriced products that never saw any real post-launch support. Their initial marketing is woeful.

Isn't ORBX developing something like this?

Yes, they call theirs FTX global but I believe I read somewhere that they have elected to drop the FTX part. It's what they have available for FSX and P3D. I was actually waiting for it's release as it had changed my FSX and P3D for the better.I was looking forward to installing this for X plane. I might give it a go.

I prefer Ortho Scenery and overlays I have for it that I made for Xplane11 with Ortho4XP.  It does not cover all of the world, but it does cover the Southwestern US from roughly Amarillo Texas to the California coast, and up into most of Northern California and covering all of Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and much of Utah.  And I also have all of Hawaii.  I wish it were not so dang large, it would be great to add to Avsim's library.  It is fps friendly and much fun to fly over, even if it is not seasonal scenery. 

Mainly I fly without my autogen overlays but they are there if I want to do a bit of Bush flying.  Sometimes I have thought about giving up my P3D photoreal so I could add more Xplane11 photoreal, or at least my Wyoming and Colorado scenery so I could complete all of California up to southern Oregon.  It is because of Ortho4XP that I somewhat favor Xplane11 over P3DV4 having both I feel it makes me a fair judge. 

I can duplicate the feel of flying better in Xplane11 because of the way it handles wind, plus the latest 11.3x upgrade is really a holy grail for me with smoke and cloud effects.  P3DV4 still offers me some good aircraft, especially my own ultralight trike, the RealAir Duke, and the interesting Columban Cri Cri, a great little ultralight.  Both sims make me happy but as I said this is a safe forum to say I give the nod to Xplane11.

Also for realistic bush flying, let's not forget sim heavens free tree upgrade, which makes the forests much more realistic, such as seen in the screenshots for this up and coming add-on the thread mentions.

Dropping the price already says it all, trying to fleece people for an absurd amount, failing that trying to make any money on it.

I'm sorry, the company name just sounds like a magic trick from Harry Potter 🙂

Appears to have been pulled from Simmarket, unless I am mistaken?

Looks like 1.0.1 was released and now they added some more information, better screenshots and a couple of videos; https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/177898-resentium-global-earth-release-version-101/

Still don't see much difference though, to be honest. Second video has also been copyright blocked almost everywhere.
