  1. Welcome to paradise! We are enormously excited to announce Cityscape Honolulu, a comprehensive city and mini-region for Prepar3Dv4. Developed by Frank Schnibben and Holger Sandmann (who you will most recently know from the incredibly popular Australia V2), Honolulu uses ground-breaking techniques to blend photoreal and landclass components to give one of the most detailed scenery packages ever brought to P3D. Covering the entire Hawaiian island of Oahu, Cityscape Honolulu brings to life this stunning tropical location with impeccable quality. From the postcard locations of Diamond Head and Waikiki, to history-laden Pearl Harbor and Ford Island; from bustling Downtown to suburban Pearl City, the entire Honolulu metro area is modeled in unparalleled custom detail. Beyond the city, explore the rugged Ko'olau Range, the laid-back towns of the North Shore, picture-perfect Kaneohe Bay and the beautiful beaches at Kailua and Waimanalo. Of course whilst there is plenty to explore within the scenery, Honolulu is located a short (island) hop from the rest of the Hawaiian chain; and for those of you who prefer your flying more medium-haul, be sure to test your transoceanic navigation skills to American Samoa and the US West Coast. Far more than a regular Cityscape, Honolulu includes a host of details and features. 20,000 unique custom buildings, hand-placed vegetation, 60+ high-detail POI (with complete PBR), road traffic, bridges, night lighting hand-coloured photoreal are just the start. The 3D buildings are created in a totally different method to our CityScene line; Frank's method combines correct footprint, height data and unique textures with highly-optimized modelling to ensure the best balance between performance, detail and immersion. Beyond the metro area, an entire mini-region has been created, with high-detail mesh, custom landclass types, totally overhauled road/rail, coastline, waterbody, waterclass, vertical obstructions, powerlines and more. All eight airfields on the island (five active, three decommissioned) have been greatly improved over the default, and create the perfect bases for you to explore the stunning terrain. FEATURE LIST A complete Cityscape and Mini-Region covering Honolulu and the entire island of Oahu Ultra-HD photorealistic depiction of Honolulu, Waikiki, Pearl Harbor and Pearl City All eight Oahu airports have been upgraded from default to "region standard" - much like you see in AUv2, GES/GEN, etc. Mixture of photoreal and custom landclass textures for best balance between realism, performance and download/disk usage. High-quality mesh, based on high-resolution LIDAR, including underwater bathymetry Complete replacement of all geodata for Oahu for a much more detailed and accurate landscape; shorelines, lakes, road/rail, traffic etc. 23,000 unique custom buildings with exact footprint and height data, combined with 90,000 custom-placed agn buildings Over 60 high-detail POIs, most with complete PBR texturing Detailed depiction of Pearl Harbor with all museums and relevant historical sites Visit the USS Missouri, USS Bowfin and USS Arizona Memorial Numerous helipad locations, including on custom US Navy ships in harbor. Exceptionally detailed hand-placed vegetation using local flora types All vertical obstructions on the island; wind turbines, antennae, power grid towers, chimneys etc Stunning night lighting, including dynamic and 3D lighting for best visuals and performance Exhaustively optimized for best performance using unique modelling and texturing techniques. >1500 sq km of stunning tropical terrain Created by powerhouse developers Frank Schnibben and Holger Sandmann, with additional help from Chris Clack and Gaya Simulations COVERAGE MAPS COMPATIBILITY Cityscape Honolulu is a stand-alone product for Prepar3Dv4; you do not require any other Orbx product aside from our free Orbx Libraries. We can confirm that the package will be compatible with FSDT Honolulu Intl Airport and Bill Womack's Dillingham X. Specific instructions on how to ensure compatibility with these airports will be given closer to release. More information on pricing and distribution will be available closer to release, alongside a plethora of new screenshots. The team are extremely excited about this product, and whilst we work on putting the final touches to the scenery, we trust that you will enjoy this small taste of what is to come! Enjoy!

  7. One of my first flights this new year was a thrilling short turning flight around Dillingham at the Hawaiian island Oahu, the Pitts model is from Alabeo:
  8. The Lihue area of Hawaiian Island Kauai is my favourite holiday stay and I just arrived via a DHC6 out of Honolulu at Oahu:
  9. Hello all, Sorry, it's been a while. With a busy 3yr old not much time to climb in the the cockpit.Here is a shot of the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor at dusk. Deault FSX, sorry haven't the money right now for global. (Straight V key). I was wondering if someone has any screenies of Honolulu or Pearl Harbor with just Global say daytime they would like to share here on this post. Hope you enjoy. JP
  10. I would love to see a high quality FTX Region for the entire Hawaiian area. I know orbx has what it takes to make an amazing scenery. Do you think that this is something that you might do in the future? I'd definitely buy this and I'm sure many others will too. There seems to be no one who has come up with a all in one complete hawaiian islands package. Would be nice to include some fine details of Mauna Kea observatories and the Kamoa windfarms on South Point on the Big Island of Hawaii. There's nothing at all for that one island for FSX and it's quite ashame since it's quite spectacular. Please take this into consideration and make my dream come true.
