  1. Hi Orbx team; After asking, I was advised to post this here. If this is not where this goes, please let me know. I have had Pearson Field for quite some time and obtained TE Oregon HD a couple of days ago. Of course, the first place I went was Pearson Field. It looks like TE has introduced a slight anomaly to a taxiway at Pearson. Also, Pearson did not have blue taxi lights around the apron and now it does but they did not get captured in the screenshots. I have all of Pearson (three parts) loaded under Airports and all of TE loads after that in its appropriate order. I am using v 11.36r2 which, I think (always hard to really know) is not a beta. I do not have any other meshes or orthophotos overlapping this region. Just thought you might want to know. By the way, these are both fantastic and amazing pieces of work. I hope the day comes that you turn your talents to the New England area of the US. Everyone seems to enjoy the west coast so much but the northeast also overs some fantastic mountain areas and lots of water along with many major cities. Cheers and thanks for the hard work. Anyway: This is Pearson as it was: This is Person with only TrueEarth: and this is Pearson and TE together:
  2. Dear Orbx Forum, this is my first post in this X-Plane forum regarding an issue that makes me ask for your help. A couple of days ago I took advantage of the Orbx Super Sale and purchased a couple of addons including True Earth GB South, True Earth Northern California HD, True Earth Oregon HD and True Earth Washington HD for X-Plane 11. As I new that these files will require a huge amount of disk space I decided to install these onto a new 2TB external hard drive and link the sceneries to my Custom Scenery folder via a shortcut. However a have lots of trouble installing the mentioned sceneries which failed to extract several files during the scenery installation process. As such, while loading a flight in one of the above mentioned regions, I get this error message that forces my simulator to close (see picture below for the case of Oregon). Now I have researched through several forum posts on this issue and tried a lot from the advices that were given to solve this problem. As it seems, this issue can occur in case of lack of space on the hard drive. I know that the hard drive on which my X-Plane 11 is installed, does not have enough disk space for all these sceneries, including their installation files (~350GB left) and that's also why I changed the location of the Orbx Temp folder and the Orbx Library folder onto my external 2TB drive. Another problem that occurs is that even when I click "Verify Files" after the installation process, Orbx central still fails to extract a large number of files which in result make X-Plane 11 crash again. I tried downloading and installing the files via Orbx Central, as well as manual download from the website - both failed. Now what's really interesting here - I think I might have already tried 8 installations or so with these addons and they all failed - except for one scenario: I tried installing True Earth GB South onto my normal X-Plane hard drive (as it is the smallest file). Here, the installation worked perfectly for me, no issues, verfication of files was not a problem and the scenery was correctly displayed in the sim. As such, apparently my True Earth addons can be installed onto my normal C-hard drive but not onto my much larger new external drive. Other could be installed onto my external drive without any issue tough. Is there anyone who has encountered the same installation problem that I have or can help me with solving the issue? I would really like to get True Earth working on my external drive as, like mentioned, my C-hard drive where X-Plane 11 is located, is too small. I have attached a screenshot of the error message in X-Plane. I would like to post also the Orbx Log File but aparently with 19MB its already too large (or can I send it comewhere else?)... If there is anything else required, please let me know! Kind regards!

  6. During this terrible time of the Corona virus a lot people work at home. For me it was already quite usual, because I am retired. Nevertheless I walk around in my neighborhood (Netherlands - Enkhuizen) taking all necessary precautions. At home I do some drawing and fly around the virtual world using Prepar3D and the fantastic Orbx products (I on a lot of it). I create YouTube videos which are enjoyed by some people. The creations is really fun, because after flying I edit the movie using Screencast-O-Matic, a great product which is not expensive (I use it already about 6 years). During this proces it feels like I am at that location. In this way I am far away from Corona. More flights I created can be found at www.wilveenstra.nl I hope all of you will stay healthy and overcome this period. http://youtu.be/rFgdJaDSJz4?hd=1 Have a nice flight, Wil Btw, the end of the flight with the city of Birmingham looks terrible compared to the start.
  7. Our most ambitious project to date sees us take the next step in bringing more of the X-Plane world to life with our TrueEarth range of products. 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. Take off from across the sprawling region and explore to your heart’s content with over 212,000 square kilometers of orthoimagery and accurately placed autogen. The wide-range of landscapes, detailed mountains and stunning coastlines will redefine how you travel across the state in X-Plane 11. Special care and attention has been given to color correction, editing and balancing the orthoimagery to ensure the highest fidelity and quality. Using the latest technology, millions of trees have been accurately placed throughout the entire region and grouped together to create an immersive environment if you enjoy flying close to the ground. The vegetation has been hand-coloured to ensure it blends in perfectly with the ground textures. Northern California prides itself on its varied landscape, giving you plenty of choice for places to explore. Yosemite National Park, famous for its stunning valleys and flower-covered meadows, find life in X-Plane thanks to the TrueEarth technology. If the wilderness isn’t your thing, then take a trip up the Northern California coast and catch the west-coast sunshine as the light bounces off of your aircraft. The sights you will see will be truly breathtaking. Set yourself the challenge of finding everything there is to see in Northern California. With nearly 1,000 points of interest to seek out, flying in a GA aircraft has never been so rewarding once you find them all. Seek out Alcatraz Island, Google's headquarters, the Apple "Spaceship" HQ, the massive blimp hangars near San Jose or seek out the many Sonoma County Vineyards. Just a small sample of the POI models for the San Francisco tile alone! (Click to expand image to view in 4K) The most exciting element of North California is the variety of topography 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 and the Sierra Nevada is simply breathtaking. Perhaps you want a more urban experience? The beautiful cityscape of San Francisco has been fully modeled with the latest PBR techniques for a detailed rendition of the City by the Bay. Take the challenge of flying under the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco or fly right over Silicon Valley in San Jose. Whatever your preference, TrueEarth US NorCal for X-Plane 11 will have something for you. And if you're a PilotEdge user, enjoy the skies above NorCal with full real-time ATC with actual human controllers! TrueEarth US Northern California HD vs SD Exactly as we have done with TrueEarth US Washington and TrueEarth US Oregon, Northern California will be available in two versions - high definition (HD) 212GB and standard definition (SD) 53GB. The only difference between these two products is the ground texture resolution. If disk space is a concern, check out the SD version of TrueEarth US NorCal, which provides the same regional coverage, but at just a a quarter of the disk space. The slightly reduced texture resolution still provides incredible detail but enables smoother performance for those with older graphics cards. If you prefer the full fidelity, we recommend the HD version for best resolution. FEATURES 212,000 km2 of hand-corrected/cleaned aerial imagery in 1m/px resolution (HD version) or 2m/px resolution (SD version) Millions of individual autogen trees/shrubs, grouped by type and hand-corrected for maximum realism across the entire region Explore and soar over the stunning San Francisco Cityscape crafted with full PBR effects Nearly 1,000 custom PBR POIs placed around the state; including San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge, Silicon Valley and many, many more. All major cities accurately modeled, including SFO, Sacramento, San Jose, Oakland, Monterey, Fresno, Redding and many others. Millions of themed and efficient PBR autogen buildings placed to match the aerial imagery across the entire region Ultra detailed elevation mesh sourced from 10m DEM to bring out great detail in the coastline and mountains Beautiful hand-cleaned water-masking, which blends in beautifully Many marinas have hand-placed 3D boats added Blends in seamlessly with TrueEarth US Oregon and the upcoming TrueEarth US Southern California (in development) to provide even more US coverage COVERAGE MAP Stay tuned for more previews over the coming week! Note: screenshots are taken from both HD and SD versions.
  8. Bought GB south yesterday. installed it and got the error message I've verified the files multiple times with no success:( I checked the texture folder and it seems like all the folders and .JPG files which, if im correct, aren't meant to be? Someone please help!!!
  9. Operating system: Windows 10 Simulator: Prepar3D v4 Screenshot: Issue: central.log TrueEarth Netherlands is not displayed on the Discover page. Is there a reason for that? Furthermore I like the new Central. It is a great improvement! Have nice flight, Wil
  10. Soak up the sun! We are pleased to announce the release of TrueEarth Florida for X-Plane 11! The sun beats down on the state of Florida all year giving it its common name of the Sunshine State. Bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other, Florida has mile upon mile of white sandy beaches, several thriving metropolises and a diverse range of culture and ethnicity. With the power of the Orbx TrueEarth technology, this is Florida like you’ve never seen it before! Exactly as we have done with previous TrueEarth regions for X-Plane, Florida will be available in two versions - high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD). The only difference between these two products is the ground texture resolution. If disk space is a concern, check out the SD version of which provides the same regional coverage, but using less disk space. The slightly reduced texture resolution still provides incredible detail and enables smoother performance for those with older graphics cards. If you prefer the full fidelity, we recommend the HD version for best resolution. ZL17 - 133GB disk space $69.95 AUD Approx. US$47.20 | €42,91 | £36.31 ZL16 - 42GB disk space $58.95 AUD Approx. US$39.78 | €36,16 | £30.60 Customers who purchase the HD version get the SD version for free. Customers who purchase the SD version can upgrade to the HD version for $11AUD.

  11. Checking out Orbx Leeds Bradford in the Oculus Rift S! Make yourself a brew and come join me if you like!
  12. A ''small'' selection of the vast amount of screenshots taken while in VR in this wonderful simulator over True Earth Netherlands. When you think that I was flying in the HP Reverb and easily achieving 45fps, it's no wonder why so many of us wish Orbx would release more regions. Anyway, without further ado....
  13. Hi ORBX, With January, it seems Hard Winter has arrived in True Earth Netherlands HD. While it looks like a post card, snow cover like that is quite rare in the Netherlands. May be one or two times every year for only a few days. Would it be possible to make the snow coverage a setting in the configuration panel, and use the normal winter textures for the whole winter season unless the snow option is ticked? Thanks in advance,

  19. Help when i try to load into X-Plane i get this message? I didn't get it yesterday! Also my True Earth South is installed but FTX Central says it isn't?
  20. On my last flights in the "ORBX-country" a few pictures were taken. I would like to share with you On this flight I started from London City Airport in TrueEarth GB to a small sightseeing flight. Flown with the AVRO Tutor (Freeware by Nigel Richards). Many thanks to @Doc Scott for his great tip! The next flight took place with the Commander 114 in Switzerland. More precisely, near Interlaken. As you can see it was very foggy, it was flown with real weather ... Small aircraft has its charm, no question. But a large aircraft, like the Airbus A318, is a bigger challenge The picture shows the final phase of the landing approach in LOWI Innsbruck on runway 26 ... Innsbruck. Always worth a trip!
  21. I was very excited when I discovered that ORBX had made maps of central UK. A bit sceptical that my late 2015 iMac would be happy, but installed anyway and... My favourite current route is shuttling between North Weald (EGSX) in Essex (where I have an hour's flight booked next month) and Rochester (EGTO) (near where I live). Here's the view of the Medway bridge just after takeoff: Heading towards Gravesend over the A2, the QE2 Bridge in the background: Then Gravesend itself, with my local Shell garage: And inexplicably, the Gurdwara has turned into a cathedral: Still, there's the ferry and (some of the) wind turbines... ...although when I got to the bridge, something very odd was happening to the traffic: A nice view of the City: and finals to 02 at North Weald: I'm going to have to do something about those motorway signs. Oh, and here's the settings that work. For some of those screenshots I had RW objects on max, but it can get a bit juddery when I do that.
  22. Hello, I recently ordered this but have had a lot of issues using it(haven't had a chance to get off the ground), most notably if I want to pan it to the right it will literally take a second or two. After a very long loading to time to start with. I then tried a different airport outside of London and there was improvements but nothing i could use. The graphics were at default which makes it more confusing, I previously used ORBX England with no problem at all. What could the issue be? I've seen people use similar specs or lower on YouTube using TrueEarth GB with no issues. . Thanks Spec: Win 10 8GB RAM GTX 1060 6GB I5-8600k Samsung Evo SSD
  23. These QUICK LOOK videos are very short videos made using P3D4 flight simulator. This one looks at TrueEarth Netherlands HD by ORBX Simulation Systems.
