  1. As soon as Asobo opens the SDK towards terrain mesh compilation.
  2. German coverage with photogrammetry is abysmal on Bing compared to Google. Frankfurt for example is not covered in Bing, as opposed to Google. So no correct Europaturm to be had for the time being.
  3. I fully expect PILOT'S to release a version of FS GLOBAL, as soon as the SDK allows. The default mesh is so bad, even in places where it has high resolution it lacks the lower LOD layers leading to cracks and rifts in the terrain, where you can see through the world. Just like in default meshes of all previous versions of the sim.
  4. Just a hunch, is anybody of you in the Navigraph NavData Beta?
  5. With all due respect, while I appreciate that this is a new sim and well have to learn our ways around it, I think telling people to lower their settings when you fly to an add-on airport in fair weather with no AI-Traffic in a default plane... If you would ask me to do something like this in a similar scenario in P3D i'd be starting to call you names. No. There is something not adequately adjusted in the scenery, and it is not our settings. Santa Barbara sits in a photogrammetry area as well and it has no such issues. Maybe it is the static models, maybe it is a lightsource t
  6. I can confirm that Burbank is extremely heavy on the GPU. I fly in 1080p with a 1660TI on a Ryzen 7 3700x.I flew from Santa Barbara towards it and everything was fine until about 2 miles on final. Then the frames dropped massively. I have been using the latest NVIDIA driver from the start, and all other areas I flew in so far, no matter how dense, nothing was taxing on my system. Well except for Gayasim's Kos. That as well gives me considerable performance problems.
  7. One can clearly see that in Google Maps/Earth. https://www.google.de/maps/place/Santa+Barbara,+Kalifornien,+USA/@34.4191959,-119.8368891,27a,35y,342.92h,79.33t/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x80e914c76f2d83d5:0xc8d13a64d7ba7648!8m2!3d34.4208305!4d-119.6981901?hl=de Flat as a pan.
  8. Can you give me the vault code access? Asking for a friend.
  9. I also assume the reason why new sceneries will usuably be cheaper than in other sims is that there is no need to buy expensive ground imagery, which is the factor that drives up costs the most.
  10. Hello there, I noticed that after tester feedback, Asobo did indeed pay attention to correct colouring of inland water bodies. However with Orbx LOWI installed the Inn changes colour to a default blue in the vicinity of the Airport and the city itself. Outside of the scenery coverage the correct greenish colour returns. Could this be fixed in the future?
  11. We had this discussion over at AVSIM. It has little to do with taxes. In some countries it simply has to do with income it seems, like Switzerland where it is 14 CHF more expensive then it should be at current exchange rate and added swiss VAT. In Germany it is about 10€ more than it should be. I really have no clue why software companies think they can simply charge more for a digital product in a different market. At least Orbx is fair about this.
  12. I see the overall accuracy of Microsoft's custom made default Airports has not improved. They still only do half measures.
  13. I have seen the Asobo Innsbruck in one of the preview videos on YouTube. They only modeled the airport. The surroundings were left to the algorithm of Blackshark. With the Orbx version you also get a lot of custom buildings and landmarks in the actual town and arround the approach, that help you with navigation and getting a feel for the area.
  14. I knew you guys wouldn't pass on that. It is definately the smartest thing one can do with the custom library objects from all the regional packages you produced over the years.
