R&D Presets VS Orbx Global Buildings HD VS Default textures

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi folks,

Here is a small comparison between textures in Europe (only).
Please note:

1) The sim is paused so fps are not relevant.
2) Comparison is done with R&D presets 4K

And now, much more interesting, night textures.

ORBX did a fabulous job and their new textures are just awesome and much nicer and innovating than anything else.
Reducing them to lower resolution would help though, because the 4K is eating frames for breakfast.
Particularly if you max out building autogen!
R&D textures are a nice addition compared to default and they offer the resolution's choice.
But IMO they are far behind ORBX in Europe at least.

Hmm, I have to be honest I was a bit "meh" with the difference in daytime shots, but I do like the improvement in the night textures. Thanks for taking the time to post comparisons.

Orbx is a bit more detail. But RD is not bad. I think i'll give RD a try first. Thanks for the comparisons.

Orbx does look better, but those roads.

Thanks for the comparison shots, that really convinced me NOT to get any of them, I can see the orbx night shots looks better, but I'm very disappointed with the daytime shots, and that goes for both RD and ORBX. After a couple of flights, I really don't think people will notice the difference anymore, and especially for me who mostly fly heavies and fast jets, it'll be a waste of money.

Part of the reason why I'm not impressed with the day pics is that I fly mainly in FTX regions and payware airports. I'm used to seeing quality custom objects.

The night shots do make a huge difference and for that reason I might get ORBX version. But, if there are pauses or distant loading textures have gotten worse, the answer is hell no!

I think I'll wait until Orbx has HD Buildings on sale with 40/50% off in 6 months or so, it looks as though this isn't as groundbreakingbreaking as I first thought, plus in 6 months we'll have more info on MSFS2020, so I may not bother at all yet.

Wonderful comparison, thank you! It seems to me that the primary reason to get Orbx is for the vastly improved night textures. Those are just miles ahead of both RD and default! Truly brilliant!

i agree with others though. I’ll not bother for full price and wait for a sale of sorts. The daytime difference doesn’t seem like a big enough difference given that I really mostly fly tubeliners.

Well, i have an 8 year old (so it's really old) PC, but hadn't experienced slower loading times. FPS also remain the same (stable 25-30 fps) as before, so with your beasts (that all cost 2k+), i don't see any reason FPS or loading times would deteriorate. And since the cost of this new upgrade is only 2% max of your computer's price, i don't understand the price argument either. I'm really enjoying VFR (GA) flying, so visuals play big role for me and i have like most of Europe, Oceania and NA covered with ORBX and other sceneries and airports, so it never came to my mind not to buy this new package. It costs like 4 beers or one T-bone, so no-brainer really. If you however fly jetliners (and i guess you do since with GA planes you wouldn't be complaining about fps) you might skip this one. 

Anyway, enjoy flying with or without GB HD whatever and wherever you fly.

For me I think it does make a noticeable upgrade to the autogen, and I even have gotten a little better performance.  I also noticed faster autogen loading and less pop-in.  I realize not everyone will have the same experience, but I wanted to share mine.

Just saw a youtube video with the new orbx HD buildings, tested in Tokyo, Paris and Mumbai, and the tester seemed very pleased with it. I still don't see that much difference from standard autogen, and even if it comes on a 50% sale at sometime, I won't be adding it to my addons. And for tubeliner pilots (like me), I really think it will be a waste of money. I'm a fan of ORBX, but I think this one is not up to their usual standard, and I DO understand there's a big difference from making a "small" region to doing the whole world, but .....still..

Well, I got it yesterday with the discount! And to me it is well worth it, the textures are crisper and the improved FPS is worth its price alone.
