Sure. But the Netherlands is a relatively small country.

And JV’s family is from there 😀

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

Oops, yes you're correct ... it was KSJC I was thinking about (installed them at the same time).

Sure any location can be done with seasons ... the "barrier" is not the platform, it's:

1.  Resource investment vs. return on the investment (aka sales) ... not many willing to pay 4X the cost to get 4 seasons

2.  Deployment size (4X server/bandwidth costs to provide to customers)

3.  End user/customer storage space (4X)

Cheers, Rob.

Anyinw hear if ORBX is planning to add more TrueEarth products for P3dv4/5, or do you think that from here on out their focus is MFS 2020?

What is the difference between their TE and their ordinary regions? Is TE better in any way ?

TE uses Sat/Aerial imagery and then places buildings/trees to their real world locations based on Sat/Aerial imagery and "tries" to use buildings similar to real world (essentially the same as MSFS Sat/Photogrammetry).  So TE is usually more accurate than a region.  As far as "better", that's entirely up to the user to decide.  I prefer TE when flying in summer, I prefer Regions when flying in fall, winter, spring.

Next up is SC. Another place where seasons is not a issue. Guess I'll have to get that one too.

If you only fly in SC and not PNW then seasons is not an issue, but if you fly in PNW and Canada or Europe then seasons give you immersion that you do not get with TE, unless you fly your sims in summer only time.

Flying from LFPG in winter to TE UK kills the immersion when you land in EGLL summer textures.

The #1 reason I will still fly P3D over MSFS is SEASONS!

 

...and my PMDG 737NG 😉

 

Especially, as we are coming up on Fall then Winter.  Nothing more satisfyingly, to me, than flying to a real world location that has just had a snowfall and see it in the sim or fly over fall foliage.

 

For those reasons, I'm only interested in TE regions that have seasons in Northern hemispheres'.

No seasons, just Photoscenery overlayed with snow"shader".
