  1. Considering the location I would have winter and summer if all 4 seasons are not technically possible (HDD & DL data volume) or priced through the roof. The mountains themselves must have snow in the winter or P3D will look as limited as X-Plane which I have avoided for this very reason. With a 2020 release date the P3D version then has 6-18 month later release than X-Plane. This alone suggests maybe, just maybe seasons will be included. The HD textures would be a must for me and I would not even bother with the 4 season low res version idea that was tossed around some months ago on these forums. The addon option for extra seasons is the fairest idea. If you want it, you pay extra for it. Another idea is to offer the extra seasons at cost some time in the future when it is deemed financially viable for OrbX
  2. An instant buy once it is adapted for P3D Although this really tempts me to try XP just for this alone
  3. This is great news even if it is next year You will need to convince Lockheed Martin to upgrade their sim so it appears as good on the ground as X-Plane This seems to be one area that LM are falling behind so I hope LM reads this
  4. This is great news, I will have to start installing these huge products on one of those old fashioned hard drives instead of SSDs I plan to get most of the TE regions so where are those 20Tb HDs?
  5. I saw Xenviro mentioned in this thread but not specifically in relation to X-plane Are there any companies planning to have snow overlaid over ground textures in Prepar3d This would then negate the need for seasons in most cases It appears seasons will be necessary in Alaskan TE products
  6. In addition to my earlier suggestions I propose 1. Allowance of one download per product per year as a matter of course 2. Make a simple request necessary for more frequent downloads so people are aware of having to justify their actions 3. When first downloading a product, it should ask where it will be backed up on their HD so most customers will simple do so 4. When trying to reinstall the very first question should be is where is your existing HS backup and state that an update will be made after reinstall of your backup 5. Updates are the norm rather than exception as opposed to reinstall of product when it is updated by OrbX 6. Make it necessary to make requests for anything out of the ordinary 7. Use a lot of the ideas in this thread to keep download costs to a minimum 8. Keep up the excellent product development and the best in class customer service Thanks once again for even giving us the opportunity to make such suggestions and share our ideas
  7. For a minimum for the LOD15 would be adding snow to mountain peaks for winter I think the increase in data amount would be minimal Another option would be to work with LM and Xplane to develop new options for displaying seasons or at least some approximation via shading OrbX appears to have significant influence with both companies. As Xplane would have most to gain they should be keen on this idea It would seem the same tech could then be implemented in P3D Finally as data transfer was the main motivation for the 2 different LOD options I suggest the following Make TE a pay by download product. Allow 2 downloads of a product in first year or one download per year and a fair cost per download after that
  8. I would personally prefer to have all seasons available at LOD15 I would also be happy paying whatever extra cost is involved From the samples it appears the trees can give a good approximation of seasons except Hard Winter I would be willing to pay for an extra winter snow package so this means 2 seasons at LOD 15 being available Someone mentioned shading the green to white, another possibility for the future depending on tech And last suggestion is that when using winter at LOD15, the sim switches back to UK Landclass based scenery Most who will purchase UK TE already have the relevant UK, Wales & Scotland products As I fly very low, LOD14 would not be for me as I find LOD15 to already be too grainy
  9. I look forward to the P3D version Are any of the OrbX textures going to take advantage of PBR now that both X-Plane and Prepar3d use them?
  10. I hope you add some photo ground scenery for mountains like you did for south Germany which stretches into Austria, it makes them so much more realistic Then in 2025 you can put the TrueEarth Australia out for us
  11. Now what is your next target? I noticed in posting this that mine have reached another interesting number of 888
  12. This article caught my eye You may have seen some incredible photography following birds by a French photographer This photo seems to take another direction in getting help from a bird to soar https://gliding.wonderhowto.com/news/egyptian-vulture-navigates-paraglider-through-thermals-4250-feet-0113485/
  13. I have been using active sky for many years and it's one of the best I added Sky Force for the cloud depiction and that made a huge improvement to how the clouds are structured
  14. Which PC6 is it - from which developer?
  15. Well it has succeeded in keeping us laughing and lets ride it as long as it lasts We are simulating the real world in a computer so going that little extra step is only logical as Spock would say
