  1. So, I know I am a little late to the party, as I just now was able to get the Cityscape Honolulu scenery package thanks to the wonderful Orbx sale going on right now. That said, here are my thoughts on this absolutely wonderful package: As some of you know, I was stationed there from 2014-2017. I was stationed at Pearl Harbor/Hickam Naval Base where I worked at the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency. While living there, I owned a condo in the small town of Aiea, which sits between Honolulu and Pearl City, directly overlooking Pearl Harbor. My condo was up on Aiea Ridge and from my front door, on the 6th floor of my building, I was able to look out over the golf course that surrounded my condo complex and gaze down upon the USS Arizona, USS Missouri and all of Pearl Harbor. Also, while I was there, I traveled all over the island of Oahu many times by car, bicycle and lots and lots of hiking. I got to know the island very well. Now, on to the scenery. Everything I just described is there in the scenery. All of it. All the buildings of my condo complex, in the proper layout, with the golf course laid out around the condo just as it is in real life. Every single landmark I looked for I found in the scenery. Yes, the obvious ones are there like all the Pearl Harbor icons. The road that goes past Dillingham airfield and dead ends on the far point, where I participated in few triathlons, is there. Every little building and road that I can remember seeing or driving on is there in the scenery. And then there is the terrain. It all looks just like it does...every craggy ridge line, every sharp peak...it all looks great! What a sensational job the developers have done on this scenery. My salute to a job extremely well done! I will be enjoying flying around this scenery for a long time. Thank you!
  2. Wow, now isn't a small world? When you went up there in 1977, I was living in those exact mountains, about a 30 minute drive from the top of the tram. I would have been 7 at the time
  3. I know EU England also has various seasons, whereas I am not sure if TE GB South does, as I do not own that product.
  4. I have been using this since the driver release several weeks ago, and I am still awed by the effects every time I fire up P3D 4.5 All my Orbx scenery looks so much better, all my A2A cockpits look clearer, sharper and more alive, AND the sim runs smoother as well! Nvidia definitely hit a home run with these new options/effects.
  5. Now this airport scenery looks amazing, and with some great looking seasonal looks, my favorite!
  6. For me, I am happy to see some new scenery that has NOT been done before. Most of the time, we see the same large airports, same big cities and same regions across the World done over and over again on each new sim. I applaud the developer of Orbx Charleston Cityscene for doing something different. Kudos!
