  1. fltsimguy, I have them all X-plane 9, 10 and 11 and its just not for me, after a few weeks or months every time I go back to P3D Many aspects are great in X-plane in my opinion but I just cant stand the lack of ATC and AI and those are extremely important to me. I dont intend to start a debate comparing the different sims, its my huble take on it.
  2. Yes its very x-plane oriented and not only here. It feels like most FS news on Fselite and other news sites relate mostly to X-plane these days. I too have my wallet ready for things like TrueEarth UK North, Channel Islands, Honolulu, the Northern Alaska bundle, New Zealands Invercargill airport and other goodies that were announced back in December. That said Im happy for the X-plane guys they have not been spoilt with addons over the years so all good! But please throw us P3D users a bone every now and again as well please.
  3. For me personally ZL16 is not an option. Not everyone fly at FL altitudes and with HD space somewhat being an issue I much rather fly and remain in one or a few select Orbx areas with ZL17 than installing several more in ZL16. I just sincerely hope the remaining UK areas and WA for P3D will be ZL17. If not Ortho4XP and Scenproc will remain my future direction.
  4. Thanks for clearing that up Scott. I dont fly in Orbx regions so that is no real concern of mine but I bet your Buildings HD product will improve the autogen i created with scenproc/OSM for my own generated photoreal area over Stockholm and surroundings
  5. "But perhaps the biggest differences are that theirs doesn't appear to be compatible with Orbx regions (whereas Buildings HD is), and doesn't contain updates to over 400 complex building and structure models (which Buildings HD does)." I am just curious about the first part of this statement. I'm all in to get your Buildings HD product and it looks great and I have really been looking forward to it but why would their version no be compatible with Orbx regions when all it does is replace default autogen? I would understand a statement that theirs might not look as good with Orbx regions but to say that theirs probably wont be compatible, is that really true?
  6. Hi What happened to Alderney from Turbulens Design. It was announced in the 2019 ROADMAP preview. Unlike some other products it actually had a release timeframe, of early 2019 and it looked so complete from the screenshots provided, thats why I am a bit curious. Naturally developers can run into problems along the way, I understand that. Again just curious and I look forward to it.
  7. Hopefully they learned something from the "MS Flight" Product a few years ago. The Community wants an open platform and we want a simulator not an arcade game
  8. I hear you. My wife is in and out of depressions at times and its no fun place to be.
  9. How does framrate compare to Orbx PNW for P3D. I have a fairly recent machine but flying in and around Seattle honestly brings my computer to its knees.
  10. I agree with you Christopher, UK Central for P3D next
  11. I assume you will start converting old P3D PNW Airports to X-plane much like with Airports in the UK. Will there be any sort of discount for us who purchased the P3D Airports or do we have to purchase them again for X-plane? I have purchased them all for P3D. The reason I ask is that I would be perfectly happy to continue to use P3D and True Earth PNW and all my PNW Airports but 2020 is a very long time to wait for the P3D version! The option of course is to switch to X-plane but purchasing all those Airports again at full price…. hmm I dont know.
  12. I have to agree with Michael. I have compiled a lot of areas lately after I learned ortho4xp ( p3d). While the result is good in places clouds and color variations are really a problem in many other areas. I have not really been 100% satisfied with any area so far. So that said I am happy Orbx does the whole package.
  13. Ok I thought you created your own. Hard to find good sources. I had a lot of success creating scenery with ”Here” maps in many northern Norway locations but in the south the usual color variation and clouds
  14. Nice, what Norway source are you using for your Ortho4xp?
  15. I agree about the seasons. I have no problem paying extra for at least a winter season and these days HD space is less of a problem. Since I intend to fly mainly in the TrueEarth Scotland area winter is more of a big deal to me and from what I understand (not beeing from the UK) its more likely to see snow than in the South (corect me if Im wrong). Anyway, I very much hope we will get a winter season included or as an addon. If not I will deactivate TE Scotland in the winter time and let FTX Scotland do its winter magic and come spring/summer I will switch back. Mike
  16. Hi I compiled the most amazing photoreal area in northern Norway and with scenproc I added autogen trees and buildings. I have Orbx Trees so I assume the default trees have been automatically replaced with Orbx trees (is that how it works)? Now, the buildings are nowhere near "Norway looking" in any way Will Global BuildingsHD replace these residential and commercial buildings, is that how it works? Any screenshots from Norway? I read that it will be out early 2019, is that still on Schedule? Mike
  17. I was very happy to read in Johns 2019 announcement post that Matteo has started to work on Olbia Airport and surroundings in Sardinia. The images look great and having just started to fly VFR in Sardinia and Corsica in P3dV4 the announcement could not have been more welcome. Such a beautiful area too, hope it will be a success! Just a small question, what coverage area are you planning? I have "Ortho4XP:ed" all of Carsica and Sardinia in beautiful 50 cm photoreal and on top of that a 5 M mesh. A true joy to fly.
  18. Was hoping for some more Norway news other than Bodo. I recall Finni was workng on a Norwegian airport and it was as far as early beta a few months back. Hopefully we will see something from him during the year that was not announced here. Merry Christmas everyone
  19. Amen to that John but every scenery design effort is more than welcome to improve Norway further be it a Orbx City, country or an airport scenery.
  20. Well AON is ok for what it is, freeware, that said all respect and credit to the AON developer! I have it but honestly prefer the FTX Norway versions of the airports in most cases. There are a few good exceptions like AON Bergen, Bomoen, Stavanger and a few others but overall I prefer the FTX Norway ones. What we need is more payware airports for Norway from Orbx Nothing beats small to medium size airports on small islands in the archipelago surrounded by mountains in my opinion, especially in winter.
  21. I was doing some VFR flying in central Norway around Bergen, Stavanger and some of the Orbx payware airports (Sandane, Sogndal) yesterday and while flying low and slow I started to think what an amazing beautiful country this is. So many airports have approaches that leaves you absolutely speechless, approaches with surroundings that many other countries in the world just dont have. Mind you I got this feeling from FTX Norway default and in most cases even without additional Orbx payware just FTX Norway default. This leaves me wondering why Orbx is not doing more Airports in this amazing country. I have already what is available (FSX Norway, Sandane, Sogndal, Notodden, Hammerfest) but there is so much more to explore. Very much hope to see more Norway in the future in addition to Bodo that I heard was in the works by non other than Tore Mike
  22. Hey John an Orbx EHLE for $39.95 I say bring it on steep yes but quality cost, right?!
  23. Those Hawaii addons are very old and outdated. I believe they were originally for FS2004 and just patched to work for FSX, P3D v1, 2, 3 and 4. So one more vote for anything with the word Hawaii in it
  24. Images look stunning Misha and I look forward to get my hands on this. Its unfortnate though that the Channel Islands will not be included like you spoke about in an earlier video with D’Andre (where he helped you out a bit with masking if I recall) as well as the 1500 km2 photreal area and Solvang, but what can you do, good job.
  25. Don't know if it has been lifted earlier but it would be nice if some or all of the Orbx P3D UK Airports would be ported over to X-plane. Imagine what a nice combo! Mike flygsidan.wordpress.com (Follow my panel building Project)
