• French Riviera VFR P3Dv4 Vol.1 & Vol.2.


    Chuck_Jodry-VJPL

    After the release of Languedoc-Roussilon VFR scenery for P3Dv4, France VFR is proud to announce their latest couple of VFR Sceneries :  French Riviera VFR P3Dv4 Vol.1 and Vol.2.

    This very famous area covering the French Riviera south-eastern part of France is modelized with hundred thousand of 3D dedicated buildings and a very accurate vegetation using our 3D Automation technology !

    This new scenery is fully compatible with the other 3D Automation VFR and Airports sceneries...

    The new VFR Regional series was designed and developped to provide VFR flight an environment as realistic as possible. It is the result of years of experience and practice in flight simulation and 3D modeling.

    "VFR Regional" products embed all enhancements from the new 3DAutomation® technology developed by France VFR. This technology already allows to generate the most realistic and dense environments ever seen. It does not intend to model real world accurately but to create a copy "as real as it gets" on a massive scale. It will evolve to adapt to the needs and new data available.


    This scenery is full compatible P3Dv4 64 bits with specific installer and is compiled in 64 bits format.

    The scenery is available at France VFR and European resellers.


    France VFR


    Features :

    - Ground textures from 0.8 to 1.20 meter / pixel resolution from IGN aerial photography reworked for an optimal visual rendition in Prepar3D®  (summer only).
    - Dedicated mesh with high definition 4.75 meters (LOD13).
    - Lakes and rivers with navigable waters fitting the texture.
    - Transparency management of the seabed on the entire scene.
    - Semi-detailed generic airports including flatten platform correction.
    - Obstacles and VFR landmarks modeled on the entire scene including the official SIA database (antennas, towers, water towers, wind turbines, various constructions ...).
    - Hundreds of thousands of objects and notable buildings integrated into the environment (churches, power plants, silos, castles, industrial tanks, bridges, tolls, cranes, boats, streetlights, road signs ...).
    - Integration of 3D Automation® technology allowing multi-million buildings and realistic vegetation areas fitting geographic specs.
    - Extremely dense and optimized vegetation coverage using a custom rendering module controlled by artificial intelligence (AI).
    - Autogen buildings including additional specific and optimized 3D variations.
    - Geo-referenced data for maximum compatibility with future add-ons installed on the same area.
    - Development process 100% Lockheed Martin® SDK specifications compliant, ensuring maximum compatibility with new releases.


    The extension pack for both sceneries should be available late 2017 for both FSX and P3Dv4 versions...

    I want this so bad, But I do not know how to install this and make it work alongside  ORBX.

     

    Anyone using this with ORBX? How to add the autogens to the existing Orbx files?

     Languedoc-Roussilon VFR scenery for P3Dv4 works fine together with FTX Global and Europe. No doubt French Riviera VFR will too. FTX  Europe features nothing  specifically French yet, just UK, Germany and Norway.

    Thanks Javiz

     

    When Installing VFR Scenery, do they not replace the following files in the P3D folder \autogen

     

     

    default.xml

    AutogenDescriptions.spb

    Materials.spb

    RoofDescriptions.spb

    These files have Orbx entries...and when these get replaced we lose the Orbx autogens

    There used to be a way to merge both sets of files.. but I forget how to do it

    Earthsimulations had the the same issue..they then provided a merge option....

    an old thread here at AVSIM talks about this

    Strictly speaking ORBX and France VFR are not compatible because each uses its own autogen definitions. But it is perfectly possibly to fly using one or the other alternatively.

    Prior to flying in an France VFR region you must just run their own autogen updater http://www.francevfr.com/agx.htm

    This step takes two seconds.

    Prior to flying in an ORBX region, just launch FTX central. This will reset the corresponding autogens.

    The above is based on my P3D V3 experience but I understand it is the same in V4.

    In a nutshell, you cannot fly from one to another but can you can still get the best of both worlds if you so wish !

    That's probably true, but it's annoying, isn't it? At least it keeps me from buying any France VFR products as I own the complete ORBX collection.

    Manny; 

     

    Your asking how to install this with ORBX?   Just install it.  ORBX is only involved with the landclass for this area.  Install as you would any other normal add-on scenery. But be sure you follow the directions of the publisher.
