  1. Hello everyone! This summer the heat has reached record highs - luckily senior developer Andreas Hegi has a brand new airport to cool you down a little! LSPN Triengen Airport is the first Swiss venture for Andreas, whose previous work includes classic airports such as Darrington, Orcas Island and Milford Sound. Not only do you get LSPN Triengen Airport in this pack, but it also includes a bonus airfield which is nestled amongst beautiful landscapes in Central Switzerland complete with rolling hills and sparkling lakes. This is a particularly special airport for the developer as Andreas actually lives in the area, so lots of time has been spent meticulously crafting small details which really bring it to life. He has even done all of the photography for R&D, having got permission to access both airfields! Located at N 47 ° 13 '36 "- E 08 ° 04' 41" and 1594 ft (486 meters) above sea level, Triengen Airport is used mainly for sightseeing flights where tourists can experience unforgettable views of some of Switzerland's most iconic mountains. LSPN also boasts a flight school, aerobatics, skydiving facilities, and of course the famous Flying Ranch restaurant. Points of Interest: Schloss Mauensee - an old chateau located on a small island The Landessender Beromünster radio tower Lake Sempach Golf-Sempachersee featuring custom buildings The central church of Triengen Key Features Incredibly detailed, high definition rendition of LSPN Triengen Airport and LSZO Luzern-Beromünster - about 145 square kilometers Scenic landscape location Offers stunning and challenging visual approaches Realistic HD textures created from on-site photography 30cm per pixel coverage Features Orbx Flow technology Wind active landing T direction indication Detailed visual charts included in the User Guide Includes many custom modeled POI’s including churches, a historic radio tower, a castle, a hospital and several industrial areas Hand placed autogen Compatible with FSX and all versions of P3D In addition to LSPN, we have also included LSZO Luzern-Beromünster so you can experience the region at it's very best. LSPN Triengen Airport will be available to purchase from OrbxDirect soon for AUD $32.95 (approx. USD $24.35 / €21 / £18.50 ) Coverage area map: Here are a few screenshots from Emmsie. Don't forget to stay tuned here and on our Facebook and Twitter pages for plenty more shots over the coming days!
  2. Hello everyone, CityScene Barcelona is here! From Allen Kriesman - the developer who brought you CityScene Gold Coast - you can now experience the largest city in Catalonia to it's fullest. Barcelona is a city in Spain and is the capital and largest city of Catalonia. With a population of 1.6 million within city limits, its urban area extends to numerous neighbouring suburbs within the Province of Barcelona and is home to around 4.8 million people. This makes Barcelona the sixth most populous urban area in the European Union. It is the largest metropolis on the Mediterranean Sea, located on the coast between the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Besòs, and bounded to the west by the Serra de Collserola mountain range.

  3. http://www.wilveenstra.nl/ Click the above link and select a flight to follow. Almost every day I make a new flight. From one of the menus you may select the flight and you will be directed to YouTube. They are all automatically set to HD. The recorded movies contain labels of cities, villages, rivers, mountains and so on. Recording is made with my NVIDIA GeForce Experience software from my GeForce GTX 970 card. I didn't find anything better and I am very satisfied with it. It does not contain editing possibilities. For that purpose I use http://som.screencasthost.com/ which is a great and absolutely no expensive package. It gives a good impression of the fantastic sceneries from Orbx. Have a lot of fun, Wil
  4. I decided to do some flying in areas I haven't been to before, so I'm creating a series of flight plans that follow the ground journey of the Silk Road from ancient Constantinople in modern day Turkey (Istanbul) to the ancient capital of China, Xi'an. I'll be flying the journey in a biplane, low to take in the scenery, and following roads that follow the ancient Silk Road paths, using FSWidgets EFB so I have a map displaying the roads and flight plan, and stopping at nearby airports along the way to refuel. Today I left Constantinople, an area surrounded by lush green fields and trees and farmlands, and as I headed south, it slowly became a bit more arid. At my third airport stop along the way, I parked at a place called Balikesir (approaching it in the screenshot below). I'm really impressed with the colours and textures of FTX Global as I fly through Eastern Europe, and am looking forward to watching the scenery change around me as I head into the Middle East and on into the Far East as I follow in the footsteps of ancient merchants along the Silk Road. I really wish the OpenLC Asia was out, because I imagine it would enhance a journey like this. If it comes out after I reach Xi'an, I might use it for the journey home, which follows a different route back to Constantinople.
  5. G'day everyone, I am proud to offer you all a sneak preview of my current major airport project, Innsbruck Airport (LOWI), located in the very heart of the European Alps. A destination that needs no introduction, Innsbruck is one of the iconic airports of the world, with a jaw-dropping backdrop, heart-stopping approaches, and a location smack dab in the heart of Europe, only a short flight away to major German, Swiss, Italian and Austrian mega-hubs. A European destination has long been on my radar, so starting in September last year, I got to work putting the pieces together for this scenery project. Given it is my first foray into the EU (and first non-US airport in quite some time!), I thought it best to pull out all the stops and include something a little extra - hopefully these first screenshots will give you a taste of what's to come. In addition to the airport, an exhaustive coverage area is included (the largest PR area of any ORBX airport to date), many helicopter landing areas, and over 160 detailed landmarks and points of interest. Far beyond the city, explore the peaks of Karwendel, Stubai and Tux Alps, the picturesque Inn, Wipp and Stubai Valleys, a portion of the historic Brenner Pass and even Germany's tallest mountain, Zugspitze. Over a dozen towns and villages dot the Tyrolian landscape, each carefully reproduced with colour-blended scenery and highly-detailed autogen. Keep an eye out for visual cues useful to pilots of all stripes; animated trains, prominent structures (including notable church spires along the flightpath), custom-modelled bridges, hazardous power lines and notable buildings are all lovingly recreated. Innsbruck is the largest city in Western Austria; located in the heart of the intersection of the Inn and Wipp valleys, the city is unofficially known as the Capital of the Alps. A major winter sports destination, the city has hosted several Winter Olympics; evidence of which can be found dotted around the city in the form of stadiums, ski facilities and institutions. Aside from this, Innsbruck is a major university city; campuses are located across the metro area, including noteable locations adjacent to the airport and University Hospital Heliport (LOIU). Be sure to also keep an eye out for the distinctive Tyrolean architecture to both churches and major landmarks alike. Innsbruck Airport itself is Austria's third largest, with major carriers from across Europe serving the popular tourist destination. A true multi-use airport in every sense, Innsbruck caters for aircraft from gliders and helicopters through to Boeing 767's (we won't count the one-off appearance of an A330!). In addition to the busy international terminal, a vibrant business jet / GA terminal (currently undergoing redevelopment) and heavy maintenance facilities, Innsbruck is home several gliding clubs and flying schools. The adjacent heliport - Innsbruck Air Rescue (LOJO) - is a major base for both Rescue and Federal Police services, both utilising EC135 aircraft. Almost all virtual pilots will be aware of the unusual departure and approach procedures for the airport - one of the very best APX designers in the business has come on board to ensure this is replicated as close to the real world as possible. Lighting, navaids, hazard lighting - it's all included and closely matched to real-world specifications. I have endeavoured to capture the atmosphere and palette of the beautiful Tyrol region, whilst still spending a huge amount of time on the "small details". As always, I stress greatly about performance; as such huge efforts have gone into optimising this scenery in anticipation of you flying your favourite resource-heavy airliner - we are currently deep in performance benchmark testing with the team. Whether you are a by-the-book airline captain, bizjet guru, helicopter rescue pilot, casual general aviation flyer or even slow-and-silent glider pilot, ORBX FTX Innsbruck will be the scenery for your simming adventures. Work is ongoing with this airport; we are deep in development and beta testing mode, and as always, no release date is given. I would ask you to please not ask for release dates (thank-you in advance, sincerely!). COMPATIBILITY: - FTX GLOBAL BASE or OPENLC EUROPE is required - the scenery is colour matched to blend with either. - Fully compatible with FTX Vector and Pilots Mesh - Will be compatible with the upcoming FTX Germany South region TOPOGRPAHY & COVERAGE AREA - Massive 2500 sq km of PR at 1m/60cm/30cm - Huge extended coverage area with full LC, 10m Holgermesh, vector roads/rail/powerlines and waterbodies. - 200,000+ building and 800,000+ vegetation autogen placements - Custom seasons files with transitional altitude-based snowlines (mimicking what you would see in a full-blown region).

  6. Just a query: The price of EU Norway is currently 28.57 and includes ~420,000 sq km of scenery The price of EU Northern Ireland is currently 28.57 and includes ~14,000 sq km of scenery That seems to be a strange pricing strategy. I get 30 times more area coverage from Norway, and yet it is the same price point as Northern Ireland? It seems very odd to "value" the two at the same price point. I would have thought the area covered would play a part in the pricing of products. I already own Norway, and love it greatly, I cannot get enough of it. I would love to get hold of all EU regions and complete my set, but I must say I begrudge paying the same amount of money, for a country that is so much smaller, with so much less to see. Any thoughts on this?
  7. I created HD videos (and still am continuing with that) of the flights I made between the free airports of ORBX. I recorded the videos by using Screencast-O-Matic which is working great. All videos are links to YouTube from my website www.wilveenstra.nl Have fun, Wil
  8. Following the model of Germany,Is there a plan to release in 2017 or 2018 an EU FRANCE scenery? (France is the first touristic destination in the world).
  9. Well, I really enjoyed the view out there! This is close to Akureyri, Iceland (airport).
