Recommended Posts

I don't want this airport, until you are happy with it Jarred. but I think I will wait until the rush dies down once it is released.

Hi Jarrad, quick question regarding AI Traffic. In the past (on other LOWI Sceneries)  it was always an issue due to the mountains around that the Traffic lands "as usual" on 26 or 08. Is there any solution on that one?

Thanks

 

Regards,

Mark

The airport has custom approaches for both runways 08 and 26. These will vector ILS AI traffic along real world flight paths through the valleys avoiding the surrounding mountains.

 

These approaches will not work for AI traffic on VFR flight plans though.

Hi guys, thanks very much for your (keen) interest, even though I'm very quiet on the forums at the moment, it is much appreciated. Those that have been around ORBX for a while know that I don't normally preview new products until they are very close to release; LOWI is an exception that was done for a specific reason (which doesn't need revisiting). It is taking longer than I was intending, but I also hope that you guys all will enjoy the extra polish that is going into this project. Keep an eye out for more previews; once you start seeing shots of the completed airport, seasons, night lighting etc, this will give you all a better idea of where the project is at.

 

Thanks again for your patience, I am hoping that the result be worth the wait for you all. 

 

Cheers,

Jarrad

 

Jarrad, thanks for the comments.  It is always nice to get a peek under the hood. 

 

Nobody has earned more leeway than you, sir, considering the pace at which you continually crank out master craftsmanship work.  Release this thing in 6 months if you need to.  We'll be here.

 

A couple new screenies wouldn't suck, though. : )

Great to learn a strategy has been found to get some realistic air life into the airport, too. This will strongly enhance the pleasure!

You guys will not believe what Jarrad is about to unveil ... standby 

I've got a gut feeling that us P3d V4 fans are going to be so excited today.

Couldn't bear any more longing for this... I had to release the compulsive scenery shopper monkey and bought Stewart (CZST) too soothe its savage thirst. :lol:

I hope my wife will never come to know how much I spent on Orbx sceneries during the Christmas sale! :wacko:

I hear that 72 ... I open FTX Central and it is pretty well lit now:P 

They do make fine estocking stuffers too;)

Hi,

In a post a few pages above, it is stated, that the scenery blends with  either FTX Global Base or OpenLC EU.

I have none of these, could I still install/use this scenery, even though the transitions may look a little bit sub-optimal :-) ?

I have the old "Austria Professional X" (not photo-realistic) installed as my 'base'.

 

Cheers,

Siggy

G'day Siggy, it should work fine with default FSX/P3D aside from colour matching issues at the outer edges of the coverage area. We haven't tested with Austria Pro X (only Austria Pro HD West) so can't confirm how it will react. 

 

Cheers

Gooday Jarrad, thank you, it worked, no problem. With FSX default, Austria Pro X and ORBX LOWI in place, it is difficult to know where possible transitions come from, but I have not seen anything terrible :-), but only did a short flight from LOWI to EDNY (Friedrichshafen/Lake Constance). In the end we will have ORBX Germany South joining the LOWI area and at least the northern border of the LOWI area will have a perfect transition.

 

Cheers,

Siggy
