  4. The voyage to the 16 national parks within german borders continues. This time the biggest challenge was finding interesting motives since there is not that much to see. Why that is the case you'll find out in a moment. Let's continue with the 3 national parks that cover almost the entirety of the german north sea coast, with the exception of the big shipping lanes from Hamburg, Bremerhaven and Wilhelmshaven. Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schleswig-Holstein_Wadden_Sea_National_Park Hamburg Wadden Sea National Park https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamburg_Wadden_Sea_National_Park and Lower Saxon Wadden Sea National Park https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Saxon_Wadden_Sea_National_Park These could be basicaly just one park, but since national parks are not maintained by the federal government but rather the federal states, the wadden sea coast has been divided in 3 Parks, one for each of the states that it is bordering on. The biggest challenge here is, that the tidal cycle is not existant in simulator and therefore it is always high tide. But during high tide the bulk of landmass in these parks is more or less invisible. ORBX have included watermasks that hint on which part of the sea you can actually walk on during low tide. The final park that is completely within the FTX covered area is Harz National Park https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harz_National_Park The first one of those I showed you so far were I have actually been in reality.
  5. Currently there are 16 national parks in Germany. They are miniscule in comparism to those of the U.S. but this only natural considering that you could fit Germany 26 times into the territory made up by the U.S. The other reason preventing them from expanding is the high density of settlements. There is simply not enough space left for them. The Müritz Nationalpark for example is divided into two parts by the town of Neustrelitz. I thought I'd fly to all of them in the next days and post how they look like in FTX GEN and GES as soon as it is released. Let's start from north to south and east to west: First up: Jasmund National Park https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jasmund_National_Park Just 30 sq KM's in extension it is the smallest of all of 16. You can basically see all of it in the shot below. It extends as far as the border of the forrest Next is Lower Oder Valley National Park https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lower_Oder_Valley_National_Park You can see here how narrow the extension of the actual park is. It is basicaly just between the two arms of the river and directly on it's border you have industrial areas near Schwedt. Next: Western Pomerania Lagoon Area National Park https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Pomerania_Lagoon_Area_National_Park Again the borders of the actual park exclude all settlements in the area. It is still the 3rd largest of the 16. And finally for this first part: Müritz National Park https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Müritz_National_Park As far as I understand this lake district with a mixture of countless lakes and primeval forrests is the main attraction of Mecklenburg Vorpommern and the reason why it is the federal state with the lowest population. Hope you enjoyed those. More to come in the future.
  6. Like almost every FTX region Germany North includes several photoreal areas. This one, however, is really huge. The PR of the German capital Berlin covers the entire city area of 891,68 km², equipped with more than 200,000 buildings, around 2 million trees and a whole bunch of POIs (look at the Soviet Memorial by Richard Bui - it's a piece of art). Of course, as part of an FTX region it has not been planned to be a real cityscape - we call it "cityscape light" . Enjoy the following pictures, taken in P3Dv3 - and please keep in mind that this is still WIP, although most parts are completed.
