  7. A few weeks ago, we spoke about the multiple new projects that Orbx has been and will be working on in 2019. One of these products was Orbx CityScene Orlando, which has released just now. This CityScene brings to life one of the USA’s most popular tourist destinations which is home to the likes of Universal Studios and Disney World. Released well in advance, Orlando will also be hosting this year’s FSExpo – North America’s largest and most popular flight simulation convention. The release of this product gives users the chance to have a look around the virtual world of Orland before FSExpo in June this year. This product includes some exciting features such as over 200k accurately sized and modelled buildings, 3.9 million accurately placed trees as well as 40 points of interest. These points of interest include the likes of Disney World, Lockheed Martin’s headquarters and much more. The entire feature list can be found at the bottom of this article. CityScene Orlando can be purchased from Orbx’s website for the price of $29.95 AUD.

  9. Bit of nostagia for you, given that EGTR Elstree is just about to be released for XP11.. Digging back into the archives, not only was Russ White a master modeller and texture artist, he was very adept at creating promo videos which captured the development process. We also sent John Lovell to the airport to take photos used for the model textures. This video was for the FSX/P3D version released quite a few years ago now, but the development process was the same for the XP11 version which Greg and Karl have faithfully ported across. The good news is that Russ White will be part of a team making brand new Orbx airports in 2019 and beyond, so expect to see this astounding attention to detail again soon, beginning with the terminal at Alderney Airport.

  12. XP11.30rc3 / Ultra Weather XP / 4K Sometimes the area surrounding an airport can throw up some gems. In this case with Elstree being close to London, two lakes nearby, and plenty of motorways snaking around .. what better than to invoke the "magic hour" and some zoom lenses and see what different times of day can bring?

  13. Orbx Elstree Aerodrome (EGTR) Announced for X-Plane 11 Continuing the development string of airports to compliment and further enhance their TrueEarth GB South add-on for X-Plane 11, Orbx has revealed that the next airport to come is Elstree Aerodrome (EGTR) which has been announced on their forum. Elstree Aerodrome is situated 2.6 nautical miles east of Watford, Hertfordshire in England. It was first used in World War II as a small landing strip used for the overhaul and repair of military aircraft. After 1946, the aerodrome was returned to civil aircraft operations and has been used by aero clubs and private pilots for the basing and operation of single and twin-engined light aircraft. From the previews, you notice that a lot of detail has been paid to minor objects in and out of the airport perimeter leaving you fully immersed. Elstree Aerodrome features an incredible 1-3cm/px ground poly, a 30cm/px surrounding countryside ortho base, textures, and objects based from on-site photography and more which you can view in the key features at the end of this article. You’ll soon be able to grab a hold of Elstree Aerodrome (EGTR) from OrbxDirect at a price of AUD$24.95 (Incl. VAT) for X-Plane 11. Owners of the FSX/P3D version will automatically be granted a 40% discount.

  15. Hot on the heels of Stapleford Airfield, comes EGTR Elstree Aerodrome - the latest UK airport to be ported over to XP11. Combining the 1 cm, 2 cm and 3 cm resolution ground poly areas with the on-location photography of John Lovell, you will be completely immersed in the scenery here. The aerodrome is located in Elstree, which is situated 2.6 nautical miles east of Watford, Hertfordshire, England. EGTR started out in the 1930s as a small landing strip and came into its own during World War II when it was used for the overhaul and repair of military aircraft. After 1945, Halifax freighters operated from Elstree and several charter companies took up residence. Since then, Elstree has become one of the foremost general aviation airfields in the country and has become a popular venue for visiting pilots. Key Features: Incredible 1 cm, 2 cm and 3 cm/pixel ground poly Countryside at 30 cm/pixel Fully custom modelled airport Created from on-site photography Designed to be used in conjunction with TrueEarth GB South Includes more surrounding autogen vegetation EGTR will soon be available to purchase from OrbxDirect for AUD $24.95 (approx. USD $17.78 / €15.59 / £13.97). Remember that if you own EGTR for FSX/P3D, you will get 40% off the X-Plane version! Please note that you will require Orbx Libraries updated and installed to version 1.45 which is also now available. MacOS/Linux users will have the latest libraries included in the cross-platform download available from your account page. Please also note that for the best experience, we recommend using EGTR in conjunction with TrueEarth Great Britain South. The scenery will work without it, however some users may experience the following: Missing or misplaced forests Missing or misplaced buildings surrounding the airport Photoreal blending Here are some screenshots from Jon Murchison - enjoy!

  16. Hello everyone, Allen Kriesman's CityScene development continues, this time with CityScene Orlando! Orbx CityScene is a new line of scenery products that will recreate urban centres and cityscapes around the world in incredible detail. Building upon thousands of hours of R&D over several years, Allen's ground-breaking new technology enables highly-detailed scenery, coupled with highly improved performance and optimisation compared to default city centres. Bypassing traditional autogen methods, buildings correctly replicate unusual footprints, improve on building height and type accuracy, and even add more details for an immersive experience. Vegetation, lighting, terrain, traffic, are all fully integrated. Most importantly, CityScene technology uses next-gen optimisation techniques to ensure the very best performance. CityScene Orlando is the biggest CityScene project to date - this scenery package covers 1,115km2 of coverage and includes two major airports - KMCO Orlando International Airport and KORL Orlando Executive Airport. We have also included Lockheed Martin's HQ east of the main coverage area - see if you can find it! Please note that KMCO and KORL provide much more detail over the default airports without any additional frame rate loss. While they aren't as heavily detailed as a commercial airport add-on, they are included in order to provide the full Orlando experience without compromising performance. Orbx CityScene Features: Highly detailed, accurate representation of Orlando, Florida Nearly 3.9 million accurately placed regional trees Over 200k accurately sized, shaped and positioned custom buildings including high rise, commercial, and residential buildings 135.7k lights, 6.3k container objects, and 3.4k individual water features 40 points of interest Expertly optimised using ground-breaking techniques for best performance What does CityScene mean?

Coverage Map: The red border indicates the entire coverage area. There is a small additional coverage area (upper right) which contains the Lockheed Martin Headquarters. This area has been blended in with the default scenery. The two yellow areas cover the KORL and KMCO airports. There is also a third Orlando airport (KISM – Kissimmee) just outside the scenery area to the south. CityScene Orlando will soon be available to purchase from OrbxDirect for $29.95 AUD (approx.
