ORBX P3dv4/5 Plans?

Recommended Posts

Can someone confirm that TE Florida includes actual detailed cities for the other four listed besides Miami (Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville and Fort Lauderdale)? I read the description in the Orbx website but was slightly confused. Also, should we expect this blend well with Latinvfr and Flytampa airports? I have the a True Earth Netherlands and had to uninstall it since it messes up my FT EHAM.

Cheers, Pete

I have LatinVFR MIA and FLL so am keen to see the outcome to this question. I am pretty confident they will blend nicely as TE scenery seems to work with other addons elsewhere. Have you checked over at the Orbx forum as my TE Netherlands and FT EHAM work fine?

Orbx TE Florida in P3D V5 with TEXTURE_SIZE_EXP=10 enabled, 45 FPS with VRR enable (G-sync on) in Captain Sim's new 767 for P3D V5, very high graphics settings, working very well, looks considerably more detailed than MSFS.  Also performs considerably better in P3D V5 than in MSFS.  Job well done Orbx, glad P3D is still on their radar.

But there again, XP11 TE Florida looks equally as good as P3D and better than MSFS.  In fact, it's difficult to decide which looks better XP or P3D V5.

Orbx TE's are clearly a step better than default MSFS sat imagery ... sadly I don't think MSFS supports higher resolution terrain textures, you get what you get.

But as pointed out, no seasons with TE, just like MSFS no season.  But unlike MSFS, at least I have the option to run seasons in P3D.

Cheers, Rob.

Is Asia OLC potentially back on the table?? I thought Orbx had pretty much nixed this plan earlier this year.I think one of the last interviews JV gave was that Africa OLC was planned to be their last release for P3D and the subsequent community crowd funding effort on their forum was declined by Orbx.Do you have more recent news on this possibility happening for next year or was it more a hypothetical statement on OLC?

 

In general, the OLC products have been quite useful both from a performance and coverage perspective. I purchased them all.

The TE products for me are a little more discretionary depending upon what region is available and where I am flying. Some have really caught my eye and have bought them but others not.

That`s the problem with ORBX what they say one year and do the next is not always the same.

That is a real shame. I know there was discussion about a year or so ago about having seasons in True Earth and I was really hopeful that this would happen. Maybe Orbx can use some technology like MSFS has to at least depict snow, which can look good. I know a snow depiction would not really matter for Florida, but maybe in the next year or so when they produce more True Earth products where it does snow. 

Maybe we will see TE seasons in the coming years. Could be a P3D v6 feature, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for this.

They are both pretty low-res. MSFS covers up its poor resolution orthoscenery with a lot of trees! 

I've tried to upgrade the Orbx Florida ortho, but my provider isn't actually much better. I've got some 50cm per pixel Florida scenery I made a while back (and maybe some 25cm), will have to dig it out and try it - I think the TrueEarth objects will look great with a decent photoscenery base, v5 does do a great job of displaying orthoscenery. And to my eyes, the atmospheric haze you get with EA works just right with this type of scenery.

Orbx provide an option in the config to use higher res.

I don't think that's right, Rob.

The X-plane TrueEarth regions were available in SD and HD versions, but that doesn't apply to the P3D versions (there was a detail pack for Washington, but that's it I think).

There's not option in Florida settings to do such as thing (which would involve downloading a new set of files) - in fact, Florida has no configuration options. At any rate, I've looked at all the ortho files that come with the package, and they're labelled "LOD15".

It's a shame, as the P3D engine can cope with a lot higher resolution that this. Whilst it's not hard to make you own ortho, it is a step to far for may consumers.

I can’t see a vast difference between winter and summer in Florida anyway. 
 

the TE products may not have seasons due to file size but the areas they have introduced are fairly temperate climates without extreme weather variations. You can also fly in wintery weather conditions. Yes of course it snows in The UK and there are seasonal leaf changes in many places but you can just as easily find a clear sunny day in winter too. I don’t find the seasonal thing a deal breaker
