  3. Hi all, The past month has been pretty rough, hope everyone is staying safe! Since we're all cooped up indoors and playing flight sims, I thought I'd take some time to finish up the Californian Channel Islands that never made it into the first version of Santa Barbara, so that you all have somewhere new to explore This update adds over 700 square kilometers of new coverage to KSBA, more than doubling the original coverage area. It also adds 3 lite airstrips for you to land at. These airstrips are super fun and challenging to fly into, and are a nice short flight away from KSBA. Alternatively, you can load your flight at CA97 Cristy Airstrip, but the other two, you'll have to go and find them! This will be released in the next couple of days. For all that have purchased KSBA already, hope this gives you something new and interesting to explore! For those that haven't, KSBA is still on discount until the 12th April, so make sure you don't miss out and pick up a copy here: orbxdirect.com/product/ksba The update will be free for all customers, so as long as you have the product you'll be able to get it COVERAGE MAP SCREENSHOTS Cheers, Misha
  4. Coming in very soon from our in-house development team in the UK is EGPN Dundee Airport for P3Dv4. As Scotland’s Culture Capital, there are a lot of reasons to visit Dundee. Built originally on the back of the Firth of Tay, Dundee quickly became an important airport in Scotland due to its close connections to the famous golf courses such as St Andrews, Gleneagles and Carnoustie. With Dundee Airport for Prepar3D being south facing over the River Tay, you can expect stunning views across the glorious waterfront and scenic natural landscaping around the airport. With the water dominating one side of your view on approach, the glistening sun makes for incredible eye-candy in the scenic surroundings. The advanced water masking techniques mean the imagery and water blend in seamlessly. Ultra-detailed ground imagery brings the airport to live and the incredible PBR buildings add new levels of immersion. The airport is frequented by Loganair daily with their Saab S340 to London and is used by the RAF to train cadets in light aircraft. Furthermore, Dundee Airport also serves as an important Amazon warehouse, providing an ideal route for the cargo carriers amongst you. Whether you’re taking flight on a scheduled commercial route, practising your light aircraft skills or taking the world’s most famous golfers to the championship courses, Dundee will make an excellent addition to your diverse collection of Scottish airports from Orbx. The X-Plane 11 version of the airport is in late stages of development and will release later. EGPN will retail for $32.95 AUD (Approx. US$21.68 | €19,77 | £16.80). Enjoy the screenshots!

  10. I am very excited to announce a new major project from legendary developer Ken Hall - Boulder City Municipal Airport! A true labor of love for Ken and meticulously crafted over two years; Boulder City sits 2,203 feet above sea level surrounded by vast desert to the south and Boulder City to the north. Situated just south of the fabulous Las Vegas, Boulder City Municipal Airport is the perfect base to start your sightseeing tours of the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. Those who love to explore natural beauty within the simulators will be fully immersed with the extensive coverage area provided by this vibrant airport. Ken has brought his obsessive attention to detail to this locally iconic airport, ensuring each uniquely textured static aircraft, hanger and airport building is truly authentic and realistic. Everything has been designed specifically for Boulder City to give you a taste of what it really feels like to be in the humid desert. All primary features are modeled in full PBR glory, with ground textures hand-drawn and dozens of unique vegetation types created solely for this project. Each year, over 100,000 departures take to the skies from Boulder City Municipal Airport offering scenic tours far and wide, including over the nearby mountain ranges. Whether you choose to take a light aircraft across the desert plains or a helicopter, the airport functions perfectly for both. Boulder City Municipal Airport features a comprehensive coverage area outside of the airport, encompassing the entirety of Boulder City, Hoover Dam, sections of Lake Mead and even the outskirts of Las Vegas. Explore local golf courses, casinos, hotels and more, leading to a seamless experience as you depart for the Grand Canyon. COVERAGE MAP AT A GLANCE Meticulous depiction of Boulder City Municipal Airport, Nevada Hand-crafted PBR texturing for all major assets and ground poly Immersive and extensive coverage area, encompassing Boulder City, Hoover Dam, portions of Lake Mead, outskirts of Las Vegas and more The major gateway airport for tourist flights over the Grand Canyon Interior modelling Dozens of customized static aircraft, helicopters, GSE and vehicles unique to this product Colour-corrected coverage area at 15cm, 30cm & 1m resolution, with hand-placed autogen Stunning night lighting Tens of custom POI and landmarks Depiction of the old Boulder City Airport (closed) A short hop to other scenic destinations such as Vegas, Sedona, Palm Springs, Monument Valley and St George Designed for P3Dv4 to blend seamlessly with Orbx Southern California, also works with Global Base Painstakingly optimized for very high performance, even with high-end aircraft. The latest from legendary developer Ken Hall (KAVX Catalina, PNG Experience Packs) COMPATIBILITY Boulder City Municipal Airport is designed to best blend and be used with Orbx Southern California, however it has also been designed to work with only Global Base, or Global Base + OpenLC North America. It should also be noted that, alongside other Orbx products, Boulder City uses a legacy ICAO code (61B) due to limitations with the Prepar3D scenery engine. Be sure to keep an eye on the forums and our social media over the coming week for even more details and info on this expansive project!
  11. Announcing Pacific Northwest Ferries for Prepar3D v4 Have you ever wanted to ride one of the classic Washington State Ferries? Now you can --- with Orbx Bob that is. Or you can watch the BC Ferries come and go at Swartz Bay and Tsawwassen. Pacific Northwest Ferries greatly improves the default AI ship and ferry traffic in Puget Sound and Southern British Columbia with authentic models and giving them realistic places to dock. Larry’s longstanding community scenery project, PNW Ferries and Terminals has made the cut and is now Orbx Freeware. In order to do so it has undergone a major upgrade. Many new terminals have been added in Puget Sound, all quite detailed, including adjacent marinas. Terminal areas have been enlarged, annotated with autogen and have seasonal PR and night lighting. Shorelines, roads and road traffic have been adjusted where appropriate. All the large terminal models have been rebuilt and new ones added. Port Townsend is now a mini Townscape which includes 2 large marinas and an adjacent pulp mill. A number of POIs have been added or fixed up: Point Wilson lighthouse, Mukilteo lighthouse, Smith Island, DeltaPort near Tsawwassen, Entrance Island with lighthouse and helipad and more. Lighthouses are based on authentic models with custom light effects. All terminals integrate with the Orbx airports and seaplane bases in the area; CAE3, CAC8, KORS, KFHR, and 74S. The large marina and ferry terminal at Point Defiance serves as a point of interest for Orbx KTIW as you approach from the north. It’s worth a closer look too. There is a lot to explore; 47 terminal areas plus other features of interest. Besides the WSF and BC AI ferries, there are a number of ancillary AI boats; tugs, a couple of cargo ships, cruise ships and a large tanker all quite detailed. And of course there is the usual Extras folder. Among other things it has a pilotable version of the WSF ferry MV Kaleetan as well as a small xml add-on that will enable all new Orbx wave effects. The entire installation is managed by Orbx Central so no more fiddling around having to disable default traffic files. The new wave effects have been anticipated for some time and we have chosen this method of distribution to let you try them now if you wish rather than wait an unknown period of time for technical issues to be solved. As was the case for CAE3, Pacific Northwest Ferries is built for Prepar3D v4. It will be offered as Orbx Freeware via Orbx Central. Orbx Pacific Northwest is required. https://orbxdirect.com/product/pnw And now some screenshots from Iain: More screenshots from Larry

  20. Croeso i Gymru (Welcome to Wales). Introducing Orbx EGCK Caernarfon Airport for X-Plane 11 by Tony Wroblewski. Caernarfon (pronounced [KUH] + [NAA] + [VUHN]) (Maes Awyr Caernarfon) is a lovely general aviation airport located right in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales, in one of the most scenic and popular tourist areas in the UK. Having spent many days around this scenic area, Tony has always wanted to recreate this airfield and have it as a base to explore this stunning area from the air, and he is very pleased to share this airport with you. Located in an idyllic rural location on the coast, EGCK is a popular general aviation airport and search & rescue base located just 7.4km southwest from the town of Caernarfon with its historic castle and town centre. Serving as a base for the Welsh Search and Rescue and air ambulance, it is also host to several flying schools and offers tourists scenic flights over Snowdonia national park and beyond. Being just a short flight from the major city urban areas around Liverpool and Manchester, the airfield offers a great escape into the Welsh mountains and beyond and fits perfectly into TrueEarth GB central. Unusually, the airfield features two large wind turbines next to runway 02/20 which also makes for an interesting and unique approach. For those more adventurous types, why not hop in a fighter jet and give the famous mach loop a try. Created by developer TrueEarth developer Tony Wroblewski (Also known for EGCB, L52, ENOV and ENHA), the entire airfield has been modelled in superb detail from extensive real-world photography and numerous site visits offering unmatched realism and accuracy. The airport and all the recent extensions and new buildings from summer 2019 have been included ensuring that the airport is as close as possible to the real airport and will remain so for many years to come. Features at a glance: - Ultra high definition 2cm/px bespoke hand-painted ground textures for the immediate airport area. - High definition, hand-crafted 30cm/px imagery for the surrounding area. - Custom and unique built ground vehicles and aircraft based at the airfield all modelled and included. - Accurately and superbly modelled buildings based on real-world mapping and LiDAR height data. - Detailed 3D fencing, signage and equipment modelled from real-world photographs - High definition hand-crafted PBR materials for the airport buildings which react perfectly to the lighting conditions. - Historic RAF Llandwrog buildings fully modelled and ready to be explored. - Surrounding POIs, e.g. Morfa Holiday Park, Fort Belan and farmland buildings have been modelled and included. - Optimized for best performance and blended seamlessly with Orbx GB TrueEarth Central - Animated and functional signal square, anemometer and windsock.
  21. I am delighted to introduce Scandinavian Mountains Airport, the world's newest international airport! Kicking straight on from the groundbreaking Gothenburg Landvetter, acclaimed developer Marcus Nyberg brings us the latest in his Swedish series. Working in close consultation with (and appreciated support of) the airport's real-world owners, this project started work prior to the grand opening of the airfield on December 22nd last year. Combined with Marcus' ground-breaking snow technology, ESKS also brings to the simulator a true first - incredible 3cm drone-sourced aerial imagery. This stunning tech works around the 7cm ground limitation (without tweaking the core sim or cfg files) to bring to life one of the most immersive airports you will experience in Prepar3D. Scandinavian Mountains Airport is a brand-new, purpose-designed Swedish airport, located close to the Norwegian border. The airfield was constructed to primarily service the major ski resorts located nearby. Designed to handle aircraft up to B747 in size, ESKS hosts scheduled A320, RJ100 and ATR72 services to both Swedish and European destinations, including Gothenburg, Heathrow and Copenhagen. Whilst primarily a winter holiday destination, the airfield is expected to handle year-round traffic, including corporate and GA flights alongside RPT services. SMA is a trailblazer in another important aspect; it has the first purpose-built remote virtual control tower (RVT), meaning that ATC staff are based in Sundsvall, rather than the airport itself. The airport is also ideally placed for short-haul flights to many of your favourite Orbx airports, including Stockholm, Gothenburg, Kiruna, Visby and Dala. As to be expected from Marcus, the airport package includes all the latest technology; 4k mixed-material and PBR texturing, a sublime dynamic ground poly, advanced rendering techniques, internal modelling, beautiful hand-drawn night lighting, custom static aircraft and GSE. Of course, the icing on the cake is the stunning snow technology that builds upon what you have seen at Kiruna and Gothenburg - this truly is the best winter experience you will have in a simulator!

  22. Orbx is continuing business as usual through the COVID-19 pandemic. Our Essendon (AU) office has been in quarantine for a few days due to one close contact, and staff have been working remotely. Everyone will be physically back in the office next week. Staff at our Havant (UK) office have this week taken the precautionary measure of working from home for the time being as well. Our Company is very used to, and prepared to work remotely. We are lucky in that regard that something like this has not affected us much, but our thoughts and best wishes go to all who are going through some difficult times. We hope all of our simmers are keeping safe and are looking out for their friends and families.
