  3. I am absolutely delighted to introduce ESMS Malmö Airport for P3Dv4 & v5 from acclaimed developer Marcus Nyberg. Hot on the heels of his highly popular Gothenburg and Scandinavian Mountains Airport projects, Malmö has been carefully kept under wraps for the past three months, and is the next destination in Marcus' Swedish airport series. Combining many of his signature design techniques such as incredible texture work, attention to detail, and beautiful hand-coloured seasonal variants, Malmö Airport represents the very best of what P3Dv4 & v5 technology has to offer. Serving as Sweden's fourth-busiest airport, Malmö welcomes passengers from across Scandinavia, as well as further afield across central and southern Europe. Many will know the airport by it's popular previous name - Malmö Sturup Airport - which although officially discontinued in 2007, is still what it is colloquially known by. Whilst most at-home with narrowbody (737/A320/E-Jet) and regional aircraft (BAe146/CRJ/F-50/ATR-72) types, Malmö also sees the occasional 747 or An-124. During non-COVID times, the airport is host to SAS, Braathens, Norwegian, Ryanair, Wizzair and more, whilst as a major cargo hub, is a port of call for UPS, Amapola and others. One of the most unique features of the airport is the second runway and adjacent aero clubs - almost a separate GA airfield of sorts. The Sturup Aero Club is situated amongst the maintenance hangars, as well as several flight schools. Standing alone on the south side of the secondary runway, the Aero Club in Malmö and South Sweden Flight Academy provide additional facilities for the GA flyer looking to explore the area. Malmö is also a major Fokker 50 maintenance base for Amapola Flyg, as well as a graveyard/storage facility for the West Air BAe ATP fleet - both of which have been faithfully depicted in this scenery. As to be expected from Marcus, no detail has been spared with the creation of Malmö. Beautiful PBR texturing has been used on key infrastructure items, whilst mixed-materials textures have been used elsewhere, ensuring the perfect balance between detail and performance. Complete seasonal variations, weather-controlled ground features, interior modelling, and special attention to landside details abound. The approaches have been faithfully reproduced with blended orthoimagery and hand-placed autogen, whilst the night lighting uses the best of both dynamic and rendered (baked) lighting to again get the best out of the simulator. Animated SODE jetways, a custom GSX profile, and optional VDGS (requiring the SODE VDGS pack) round out the features for the serious simmers amongst us. Developed with the full co-operation and assistance of Malmö Airport management, special thanks must go to Jan Wieslander and Andreas Lundvall with their on-site assistance over the past several months. An airport built to the highest standards, ESMS combines the latest P3D tech alongside best-practice optimization to ensure the perfect balance between stunningly high-fidelity visuals and excellent performance, perfect as your next Scandinavian destination! FEATURES Immaculately detailed depiction of ESMS Malmö Airport for P3Dv4+ The latest Scandinavian airport from acclaimed Swedish developer Marcus Nyberg (Gothenburg/Kiruna/Stockholm Arlanda) Stunning ultra-HD texturing through the airport, including PBR for primary components Customized interior modelling Weather-influenced PBR ground textures Night light lighting using a combination of dynamic and baked lighting for a completely immersive night experience Animated SODE jetways Optional accurate VDGS for customers who use the SODE VDGS pack Unique custom aircraft (F-50/BAe ATP and more) made specifically for Malmo Detailed APX, pre-configured for complete GSX compatibility A short flight to other popular Scandinavian destinations, Stockholm Arlanda, Gothenburg, Dala, Scandinavian Mountains Airports and Alesund Painstakingly optimized for excellent performance even with high-end aircraft Designed for P3Dv4+ to blend seamlessly with Orbx Global Base and/or openLC Europe. Also compatible with Vector Developed with the full co-operation and assistance of Malmö Airport management Please stay tuned for more previews and details over the coming weeks. Enjoy!

  6. First announced at Cosford in late 2019 and after some sneak previews, EGNT Newcastle International Airport for P3Dv4+ is almost here. Newcastle International Airport is located north of the university city of Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North East of England. Once an industrial superpower of the shipbuilding era Newcastle has now transformed into a buzzing cultural hub. Over 5 million visitors a year pass through the doors from leisure routes operated by narrow-body jets to Las Palmas & Santorini and long-haul visits to Dubai in a 777-300ER. This is the perfect airport for those wanting something a bit more regional, but with an international appeal. The 7,600ft runway provides quite the challenge when operating those heavier aircraft, especially during the typical rainy weather of the north of England. Our UK team based in Havant have taken care and attention when developing Newcastle International Airport and it shows. With high-quality texture work throughout and plenty of features to enjoy, Newcastle is a great addition to the UK set of airports.

  15. We are delighted to unveil a surprise new Norwegian destination from Finn Hansen - Ålesund Vigra Airport! A complete package for P3Dv4 & v5 that encompasses both the airport and surrounding islands and terrain, Ålesund is a scenic holiday destination situated near the entrance of several major Fjords. Ålesund Vigra is a major Norwegian airport, with legacy, low-cost and charter carriers flying to destinations across Europe. Whilst most commonly served by single-aisle favourites such as the A320, 737NG, CRJ, ATR and Dash-8, the airport has also hosted both 757 and 767 aircraft on the rarest of occasions. Aside from flights to Oslo, Bergen, Copenhagen, Trondheim and Amsterdam, Vigra Airport is also a short flight away to favourite Orbx Scandinavian destinations including Notodden, Hammerfest, Scandinavian Mountains Airport, Gothenburg and Stockholm-Arlanda. As a scenery project that harnesses the latest P3D technology and features, Finn has gone above and beyond to create an ultra-detailed depiction of this well-known location. Experience beautiful over-water approaches (special care has been given to the tone and colour of the waterbody textures), explore the numerous islands, harbours and inlets included in the coverage, or visit several of the surrounding peaks. Many points of interest have been modeled, including the Giske Island Bridge and the rather unusual Subsea 7 North Sea Spoolbase. Stunning ultra-high resolution 7cm ground textures have been hand-edited across all seasons, and Finn has also included 3D snow tech for the coldest months of the year. Much like other recent projects such as Burbank, Rejika and Boulder City, extra attention has been given to creating detailed unique GSE, vehicles and boats solely for this project, ensuring a truly authentic and immersive experience. Ålesund has been intentionally designed to be compatible with either Global Base, Orbx Norway or OpenLC Europe (nb - Global Base is a prerequisite for OLC EU), with blending, seasonal variations, custom 10m mesh, vector and terrain edits covering all potential base-scenery combinations. For users who fly with Orbx Norway, it is notable that Ålesund Cityscape - a primary focus feature of our Norway Region - nestles immediately adjacent the airport coverage area.

  18. Welcome to Hollywood! We are enormously excited to announce Hollywood Burbank Airport, a comprehensive airport and cityscene package for Prepar3Dv4 & v5. Seasoned developer Matteo Veneziani has spent the past twelve months (since Olbia Costa Smeralda) creating one of our most expansive airport products to date. Beyond the immediate airport vicinity, the scenery includes a large section of the northern Los Angeles metro area, encompassing the entire San Fernando valley and surrounding mountains. As one of our most requested destinations, an incredible amount of attention has been spent finessing all the details of the airport, including complete PBR textures, unique GSE, vehicles and static aircraft. A key focus of this project has been performance optimization, with ground-breaking techniques implemented to ensure a seamless experience with your favorite addon aircraft. Burbank airport is one of the primary airports of the Los Angeles area, with mainline carriers flying to destinations across the US. As the closest airport to downtown LA and the major film studios, it is also highly popular with corporate traffic, as well as being a major cargo hub for FedEx and UPS. Matteo has modeled the airport with incredible attention to detail to both airside and landside aspects. The custom static aircraft can be disabled or enabled via control panel settings, as well as a host of other performance-based preferences. Aside from trans-continental flights to locations such as Atlanta, Chicago, Las Vegas and Denver, Burbank is located a short distance from favorite Orbx destinations such as Palm Springs, San Diego, Santa Barbara and Monterey. Beyond the airport boundary, explore the enormous 1400km2 coverage area. Encompassing the entire San Fernando Valley and surrounding mountain ranges, the extended cityscene component includes dozens of custom landmarks, custom autogen vegetation, high resolution DEM and hand-edited orthoimagery. Special attention has been paid to the film studios, commercial areas and Universal Studios theme park to the south of the airport. Cross over the Hollywood Hills to explore the Griffith Observatory and iconic Hollywood sign. All non-residential buildings have been created using new modelling techniques, ensuring a balance between high detail, unique content (no repeated roof textures) and accuracy. As well as the main airport, the scenery also includes several rooftop helipads, and most importantly, lite renditions of both Van Nuys and Whiteman general aviation airports. Special care has been given to optimization with this project. Aside from techniques used in other recent projects, a key factor in the performance of Burbank is the large coverage area. Using the same advanced optimization methods implemented in projects such as Innsbruck, Palm Springs and Santa Barbara, the project has also been designed to work seamlessly with either Global Base or SCA Southern California (landclass region), depending on the flying style and preference. Understanding the performance issues often associated with the LA basin, and every effort has been made to optimize scenery for extended approaches into the airport. COVERAGE AREA AT A GLANCE - Complete ultra-HD rendition of Hollywood Burbank Airport (KBUR) - Custom modelling throughout, with complete PBR textures - 1400km2 of extended cityscape scenery with complete SoCal vegetation types & building agn - Covers the entirety of the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles, as well as surrounding mountain ranges and Hollywood Hills - Beautiful hand-coloured and edited ground textures at 30cm & 1m resolution - Dozens of points of interest, including major film lots, Universal Studios, Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory and more - Unique GSE and static aircraft fleet unique to Burbank - don't expect to see generic airside vehicles or unexpected aircraft types - Custom vegetation, grass and non-airside detailing - Optimized for use with default and well-known AI programs - Incredibly detailed landside approaches - all industrial buildings, parking lots and retail/fast-food areas modeled in full - High-resolution 10m DEM - All non-residential buildings as custom 3D models with unique roof textures - 2x Bonus Lite Airstrips: KVNY Van Nuys and KWHP Whiteman - Several skyscraper helipads available for your rotary wing adventures - Implements start-of-the-art optimization techniques to ensure best performance - Developed by Matteo Veneziani COMPATIBILITY - Designed to work best with Global Base or Orbx SCA Southern California LC Region (or both!) - Completely compatible with OpenLC North America (requires Global or SCA in addition) - Completely compatible with Vector (requires Global or SCA in addition) We hope you enjoy the first previews of Matteo's latest work.

  23. Orbx's most ambitious TrueEarth product to date sees us take the next step in bringing the stunning Northern California to life in Prepar3D. TrueEarth US Northern California is the result of years of research and development, as well as countless hours of crafting together one of the most stunning and diverse regions in North America. Enjoy our 20% launch weekend special discount! Don't miss out, sale ends June 16th 2020 1am UTC Working to bring a truly immersive experience, TrueEarth US Northern California takes a data-driven approach to accurately placing millions of trees, buildings and points of interest throughout the region. Set yourself the challenge of finding everything there is to see in Northern California, with 1002 custom-modeled POIs to seek out. Discover Yosemite National Park, famous for its stunning valleys and flower-covered meadows, or take a cruise up the Californian coast and watch as the sunshine bounces off the water. The most exciting element of Northern California is the variety of typography throughout the region, meaning you could spend days exploring and still find uniqueness throughout. The rugged coastlines up by Big Sur and Shelter Cove make for excellent expeditions, whilst seeing the peaks of Mt Shasta is simply breathtaking. Whatever your preference, TrueEarth US Northern California will have something for you! We have also made some autogen compatibility updates for the following Northern California airports: KBLU, KEKA, KFOT, KHAF, KRDD, KSQL, KSTS, KTVL & O60. You should see updates for them very soon. A larger patch will be made for KMRY shortly.
  24. Hi all, a small patch has been made available to address a mesh issue in the mountainous border part between Great Britain Central and South.
