  8. Welcome back to Orbx the Mountain Maestro himself, Frank Dainese, who produced the much-acclaimed Monument Valley, Devils Tower and Yosemite National Park sceneries for FSX and P3D. In collaboration with development partner Fabio Bellini, Frank brings a completely re-done Monument Valley experience for XP11, and is now available through OrbxDirect. https://orbxdirect.com/product/monumentvalley/xp11 Note that customers who have purchased the FSX/P3D version will qualify for the 40% cross-platform discount.
  9. We are delighted to welcome back to Orbx the Mountain Maestro himself, Frank Dainese, who produced the much-acclaimed Monument Valley, Devils Tower and Yosemite National Park sceneries for FSX and P3D. In collaboration with development partner Fabio Bellini, Frank brings a completely re-done Monument Valley experience for XP11, adding entirely new tech and many new features not previously seen One of the most iconic landmarks of the American West, Monument Valley is a natural wonder situated along the Arizona/Utah border, in close proximity to the Grand Canyon, and just a short flight away from other well-known destinations such as Las Vegas, Phoenix, Sedona, Telluride and Flagstaff. Known as the backdrop to many well-loved films from the Golden Era of Hollywood, the park is situated within the Navajo Nation and is visited by tens of thousands of tourists each year. The scenery features 21 3D models of the main peaks, with the data being derived from digital elevation model (DEM) and then reworked and finished off with 4K textures! The mesh for the scenery has been recompiled as well as with the terrain being rebuilt with texture polygons and does not rely on any orthoimagery. This scenery is a must have for VFR flyers as well as those that dabble in a bit with the Aerolite. With Monument Valley Airport (UT25) which is included, 4 helipads have been added at Monument Valley Airport, the View Hotel, Oljato and John Ford Point. Stay tuned for more screenshots over the week!
  10. As announced last month by Sylvain Delepierre, his excellent freeware addon for FSX/P3D has been ported over for Aerofly FS2 and is available now! Add it to your account from here https://orbxdirect.com/product/lsgk/afs2 Note that the Swiss cultivation DLC addon announced by Sylvain is not available as yet. When it is we will tell when and where to get it from.
  11. Produced by Graham Eccleston as well as updated for P3Dv4, the North American General Aviation Traffic Pack is now available. There is very little new content in this package apart from a comprehensive reworking of the AI models to P3D V4 standards. This package maintains the limited coverage of the first release of the NA GA AI package. It should be noted however that there are now quite a number of additional traffic files that have been included in most of the NA regions and airports which are calling on the AI aircraft included in this pack. This means the spread of aircraft throughout the sim will grow as any new regions and airports are added. Lua scripting has been used for night lighting and this will provide conditional lighting for all models. AI Aircraft will be in complete darkness from dusk to dawn with the cabin lights only on when the aircraft is active. Dynamic lighting is also available for all the AI models. Please note that this package is suitable for P3D V4 only and should not be installed in FSX or P3D V3 and earlier versions. https://orbxdirect.com/product/aitraffic-naga-p3dv4

  14. It's good to be back home to Australia with our next airport - YBCG Gold Coast Airport and its available now! Designed in parallel with the recently-released CityScene Gold Coast, YBCG is a highly detailed and incredibly complete reproduction of the airport and surroundings area, completing the most accurate and detailed airport-city combo currently in our catalogue. Gold Coast International Airport has been designed carefully by Matteo and reflects the real-world layout of the airport. The scenery has been optimized using our latest techniques, and has been designed to work optimally with either Orbx CityScene Gold Coast and/or Orbx Australia. The Gold Coast International Airport (formerly known as Coolangatta Airport) is an international Australian airport located at the southern end of the Gold Coast. The entrance to the airport is situated in the suburb of Bilinga near Coolangatta. A great piece of trivia; runway itself straddles the state border of Queensland and New South Wales, and during the summer months these states are in two different time zones! Features Highly detailed, accurate representation of Gold Coast International Airport with new apron and taxiway charlie. Beautiful ground textures in 15cm/px 7cm ultra-HD at Southport airport Bonus Southport Airport YSPT, with unique sloped taxiway and elevated parking lots Super level of realism in both airports and surroundings used in combination of Orbx Cityscene Gold Coast. Compatible with Orbx Australia and/or Orbx Cityscene Gold Coast. Includes Dynamic lights and extremely realistic specular effects over ground textures. Fully optimized by using latest techniques.

  15. Pearson is Bill Womack's sixth Orbx airport, and his first Orbx-only release since returning to the fold. Among all the small Pacific Northwest airports that are loaded with character, Pearson Field stands out. For one thing, it predates them all; KVUO is officially the oldest continuously operating airport in the region, and one of the two oldest operational fields in the US. Even well before the dawn of aviation, the site was a hub of activity, as evidenced by the 19th-century Hudson's Bay Company fort and trading post just off the threshold of runway 8. In its life so far, the tiny airport has hosted the first crossing of the Columbia River by airship in 1905, been a stopover on the US Army's first round-the-world flight, and made Russian aviation history as the landing spot for the Chkalov Trans-Polar Flight in 1937. Today, it's a popular field for GA pilots and history buffs and occupies a prime piece of real estate along the banks of the Columbia in the flight path of KPDX's runway 10L. We've worked hard to replicate the feel of this busy suburban field using hundreds of photos taken on-site. Many of the unique landmarks are represented, including the I-5 bridge between Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington, the railroad bridge just downstream, the busy shopping area of Jantzen Beach on nearby Hayden Island, and a faithful reproduction of downtown Vancouver. If you're a fan of our Pacific Northwest airports, this one is a must-have! https://orbxdirect.com/product/kvuo
