  1. My first landing at Alesund Vigra, at dusk, under windy conditions. On my previous post I mentioned the lack of realistic airliners for MSFS. Hope they come soon. The same cannot be said about sceneries: Orbx and its partners already released 15 (!!!!!) sceneries in less than one month. Amazing work. I bought them all, of course

  3. This airport and its surrounding region are stunning. I am speechless and breathless. I hope Orbx will release more and more small airfields like this for MSFS 2020.

  6. A flight at the wonderful Olbia Costa Esmeralda airport after some weeks flying almost exclusively with MSFS 2020. I was missing very much the realism and immersion that a study level airliner gives us. And let me say, it was a pleasure to be back to the amazing PMDG 737 NGXu, which for me is the best airliner ever released for a sim. The visuals of course are not at the level of MSFS2020 (the best looking sim ever), but P3D+great quality scenery like this one give a top-notch experience. We still don't have high quality aircraft for MSFS (t

  7. I think the key point here is that some people will like subscriptions, and some won't. I don't think it's likely that we'd force all of our customers over to a subscription if we had that as an option. As a much larger example, you can either buy Xbox games outright, or use Xbox Game Pass. It gives the consumer more choice. If you don't like subscriptions, just don't use it.

  14. Hello, then again, why not? The part that escapes me is the apparent need to remove all that has gone before. Given the wealth of choice, one can use them all, taking advantage of the best points of each one, depending on the type of flying that one wants to do.

  18. Another outstanding Orbx masterpiece. I spent several hours today, just puttering around investigating. It brings a level of immersion that simply has to be experienced. Mere words cannot describe it. Cheers Pete One of the most outstanding features of MS2020 is the water A screenshot doesn't capture the feeling. It is dynamic and the motion is unbelievable We've spent a fair time cruising all over the world and it made me feel like I had a brief holiday - it's that good It is simply beautiful .....

  21. Orbx is proud to return to our roots with our very first Australian product for Microsoft Flight Simulator - Cityscape Sydney! We know that many of you have been keenly awaiting news of our first homegrown project for the new sim, and as such we have to kick things off in style. Over nine months in development, Cityscape Sydney is an enormous project that pushes the boundaries of what is possible with the current MSFS SDK. Acclaimed developer Frank Schnibben (Cityscape Honolulu, Melbourne Cityscape for AUv2) has brought to life Australia's largest city with his debut MSFS scenery

  23. Frankly I find that there is room in MSFS for most all of the traditional Orbx sceneries from from obscure strips, bush strips, water strips and mid and large airports, and even smaller regions and cityscapes of all kinds. There will be a market for it all, we are a broad ranging community. Thank goodness that the individual developers have a passion for their own interests as that passion is what generates the spectacular offerings. Imagine if you will Ken Hall's PNG to mention just one example that has been discussed in another thread lately! Honestly, I can't think of one of the P3D Orbx sc

  24. Happy to present a new C152 livery for msfs2020 - which is absolutely great ! This repaint will be uploaded at avsim.com nextly (PS : this new repaint has been made with Gimp from the repaint TEXTURE.N48270 by Tom "FlyingsCool" Perry : I modified the color to brown and put stickers on ) So this is its new short flight over Darrington (I had trouble with the new uploading process with imgur ... no more preview and not shots - I had to put them as attachments ...)

  27. Norwegian developer Finn Hansen brings us his first airport for MSFS with Ålesund Vigra Airport! A delightful airport located along the beautifully rugged west coast of Norway, Ålesund is a major destination for legacy, low-cost and charter carriers flying from across Europe. Building upon the P3D edition released in June, Finn has brought new features to this new release. Make the most of the amazing new weather engine by testing your skills in the most difficult of flying conditions - be it mid-summer storms or freezing winter squalls.

  29. A quick initial look at Bryce Canyon, damp dawn. I was surprised to find habitation beyond the airport. A ton of detail to explore here. I found a concrete mixer in a hangar but the lawn mower eludes me. KBCE reeks of atmosphere. A microcosm of activity on a flat but interesting expanse of earth. Nice work again, Ken. TTM (MSFS/Med) .

  34. Mornin guys! The issue is known - where two airports that include photoreal imagery lies close to eachother, the sim will just hang. We are working hard with the Asobo guys to try and fix the issue. I've included a simple temporary fix however: - In your community folder, delete the folder "Orbx-AERIAL-enal-alesund" - This will remove the included photoimagery on Ålesund and allow the sim to load up. Please also file a bug with Zendesk. Enjoy! // Finn

  35. I bought the deluxe premium version as it was just the half cost of P3D professional version ( I hate any text on my screen and videos) and besides was their best version I feel satisfied with it so far. I have 100 mb internet so I think that helps a lot in the performance, but there are just a few things I don't like: 01.- The default angle of the external view, top of the plane and backwards. I prefer the angel and distance P3D has in the external view 100%. I manged to set my own keys to go around the plane 360 on the external view but the change of angle is not smooth is

  36. This is becoming ugly. I was doing a VFR flight from the new Wycombe to Bristol two days ago and was absolutely pleased with what I saw. Plus, performance was great with > 40 fps and no stutters (okay, that's not a diffficult region). Yesterday, after learning the patch has downgraded scenery, I started to count trees and watching out for missing features. Argh. Kind regards, Michael
