Orbx kills OpenLC Asia

Recommended Posts

Since my last post on this thread, ORBX Central is now working and I've moved on to TE & Photo sceneries. They are a huge upgrade over the FTXG/LC combo. I would not sweat this too much as there's a new sim coming in 2020 that should give us some beautiful Asia textures that should blow away anything available right now.

So be merry this new year. 😀

The 'Climate' changes every day. It's what we call 'Weather'.

DJJose you are right sir, the future is bright and there will be many choices coming. As for now I have plenty in the basket with Prepare and X-Plane to keep me busy.

I read somewhere that X-Plane will one day have updated weather. Looking at the next rendition of TE (FL) it can come soon enough for me. I absolutely despise weather depiction in XP.

I have a feeling that TE PNW for P3d is dead in the water too.( was supposed to have come out in 2018/2019 originally)

With MSFS 2020 coming up in a year or less, it would not make good business sense to go ahead with it.

Never used XP but since XP is ortho scenery by default, TE regions seem to be quicker to develop for XP. Orbx released virtually the whole west coast of US ( and Florida probably soon) in less than a year!. With P3d , this would be a pipe dream. I figure that since P3d is texture based, doing TE areas with photoscenery/full autogen is very intensive and takes much longer to do than XP. Plus it seems like TE is more of a performance hit with ESP sims.

Now that this topic has gone so far away from the title, perhaps it might be good to take it a little further away again and point out that OpenLC Africa has apparently entered the beta stage.

This is not for X Plane 11 but for P3D and FSX.
