  3. Hello all, Normally Orbx does not announce projects until they are at least in alpha or beta stage and we have something to show. However in the case of this announcement, a lot of exploratory pre-alpha work has already been done and indeed I've shown some sneak preview shots already. Moving forward I think in the current climate of multiple sim platforms we will likely be giving more advanced notice of future projects. What I can announce today is that we have secured pristine aerial photography for all of the UK and Ireland and this now paves the way for projects to commence in earnest. Jarrad Marshall will be announcing the name of these series of addons this weekend so I won't reveal the Orbx product series name yet, but they will be made entire from aerial photography orthoimagery and not landclass based. In addition to the Netherlands for FSX/P3D coming in a matter of weeks, we will be releasing photoreal regions for England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, Pacific Northwest USA and Germany in 2018/19. These will be released as a region each, allowing you to pick and choose which ones you want and also manage the footprint sizes on your drives. We may split Germany into halves to contain the installation size. The prospect of flying from Ireland to the eastern part of Germany in a contiguous photo based scenery is now very real. The first sim platforms these UK/Ireland regions are to be released on will be X-Plane 11, followed by Aerofly FS2. This is because the pre-work has already been done and they will be summer season only. FSX/P3D will follow but there is a lot of work to produce 5 seasonal variations of each regions therefore extra development time will be required. We will be producing a test compile somewhere in the Midlands soon, and we can then share a few further sneak preview shots. These regions will be "install-and-fly". Everything will be managed by OrbxDirect and FTX Central so you can focus on just enjoying the regions themselves. We plan to include every house, building, tree and structure in all of the UK/Ireland and the regions will also include (based on each sim's functionality) night lighting, traffic, power lines, water masking, light houses, cityscapes, POIs, marinas, ships and thousands more 3D objects. Airports will be upgraded in the FSX/P3D version but we are not 100% decided on XP/AFS2 for airports at this stage. Those may follow in a service pack or we take a different approach (more details TBC). So imagine doing an approach with scenery that looks like this: This will soon be possible across multiple sim platforms and I am sure you are just as excited as we are about the prospects of seeing this level of detail in your favourite sim. More information to come in due course!
  4. Hello everyone, KSUN Friedman Memorial Airport for Prepar3D v4 is now available! Developed by Turbulent Designs, Friedman Memorial Airport includes 715km2 of 60cm per pixel photoreal for the airport and valley. This mountainous area also includes 1ID5 Lukes Wood River Medical Center Heliport for those wanting to take a little more time to explore the valley. KSUN will feature buildings and vegetation textured in high definition and stunning detail. As attention to detail is key, we like to treat every airport area as a feature area, built with exploration in mind. Not only will KSUN look stunning from your aircraft, but it will look even better up close and personal. We recommend everyone have a wander around! Modelled and textured by Russ Linn, the airport terrain is where most of the new features are located. KSUN also features dynamic season textures using v4 native scripting. We opted to model the entire airport area as a mesh, giving us the opportunity to create a sloped runway, different levels in terrain, an insane amount of detail with some cool weather and lighting effects. Effects include realistic oil, reflective puddles during the winter and rain, icy runways and taxiways during snow and even the reflections of lights in puddles at night time. As always, we also like to include our custom modelled buildings for a nice buffer between the airport and autogen. All of the custom buildings are highly detailed with plenty of variation, giving those urban and industrial areas a nice natural look! Key Features: Friedman Memorial Airport and surrounding area in stunning detail 715km2 of 60cm per pixel photoreal for the airport and valley 1ID5 Lukes Wood River Medical Center Heliport Dynamic seasonal textures Sloped runway Realistic lighting effects including oil, reflective puddles during winter and rainy weather, icy runways and taxiways when it's snowing, and reflective lights in puddles (especially noticeable during night time) KSUN Friedman Memorial Airport is now available to purchase from OrbxDirect for AUD $32.95 (approx.

  14. Hi everyone, All you all know we released KCGX Meigs Field for X-Plane 11 yesterday, and it's proving to be a HOT seller, certainly on par or if not better than small to medium airports for our other platforms. So please allow me to say a big THANK YOU to the X-Plane user community for embracing "the new Orbx kid on the block" and I hope it has met your expectations! We don't have delusions of world domination but we hope to see many other FS developers embracing XP moving forward as well. You may be wondering about the choice of Meigs Field as our debut. The reason is fairly simple - we hired a contractor to port this over a year ago as part of our evaluation of XP11 and to see what was involved. We then sat on the 80% completed work for various reasons as well as working on enhancements to the existing FSX/P3D/AFS2 versions to vastly expand the cityscape well into the suburban areas and add a larger photoreal terrain coverage. So basically, we've added the last 20% to make it on par with the other platforms and released it. However, we have 2-3 more Orbx airport ports coming in a short while and also a new first-for-XPlane release; EGCB Barton Manchester Airport by Tony Wroblewski, which looks just ridiculously stunning I have to say! (There are many more shots but I don't want to steal Tony's thunder - needless to say it looks gobsmackling good ) 2018 X-Plane (sort of) Roadmap We don't yet have a formal roadmap to announce yet but here is the rough plan: Hire more XP experienced developers to add to those already recently joined Port our most popular small to medium airports to XP11 Potentially port some of our larger more complex airports and their attached 'micro-regions' Develop a photoreal Pacific Northwest region Port the PNW airports across to establish a bush-flyer's paradise Work with Ben Supnik and the guys at Laminar to try and add bone animations to the sim so we can add some Flow technologies Release more 'first-for-XPlane' titles (yes, we may end up porting XP airports back to FSX/P3D/AFS2, how about that eh? ) Port across our Netherlands photoreal region Investigate further US regions Investigate a UK photoreal region with ported and brand new airports Some pre-alpha shots of a UK region exploratory work: What we don't plan to do: Create an Orbx Global, openLC or Vector product; for now this is too ambitious in scope for the platform Create land class based regions; XP doesn't have seasons and we are not yet up to speed with the XP internals just yet Hopefully this post will be welcomed by the XP community as a sign of our commitment to the platform. Orbx is morphing into a multi-platform FS developer and whilst we remain focused on our core sims (FSX/P3D) we also recognise that there are new sims emerging as choices for the FS community (XP/AFS2/FSW) and it makes good business sense to expand the scope of our offerings to them.
  15. CityScene Orlando for FSX & P3D is now available to purchase on OrbxDirect! Orbx CityScene is a new line of scenery products that will recreate urban centres and cityscapes around the world in incredible detail.
