I was lucky to arrive already on a Sunday at noon at Vizakhapatnam, so I could do a tour towards the ocean which the real @luckyb52 may see every day. Over Vizak city (hey, the impression is great already!)...

... along RK beach towards my hotel. It should be just below the helicopter - but here we have to hope for OLC (at least).

And also the beach could be more detailed, at day...

... or at night.

Going north to the famous Kailasagiri Hill...

... and up. Sure no climb at these temperatures...

... but a good view from the top.

Tenneti Park at the bottom of the hill.

And back to the airport on the common approach.

The level of detail and, even more, the impression is quite ok, I must say.

Jesus, this is a real mind-bender, Gerold!! The mixture of RL and sim has my head spinning...

 

Come southwards ASAP to Chennai, where I await you with a tumbler of South Indian coffee :D

A very nice series here.  Thanks for sharing, love the real shots as well.

Thank you Sammy. We are waiting for OLC Asia to have more detail in the sim, then I´ll do trips like these again...

Dry days, but still I prefer the mocktails. Indian coffee is just too sweet for my taste. Thanks for the invitation, Lucky!

Great comparison as always Gerold, but Asia definitely needs some Orbx treatment.

As I said: The impression is already ok. But airports, coastlines, landclass leave room for improvement...

Awesome Gerold.  You live the life man, you live the great traveling life.  

The pictures and memories last longer than the travelling. Just some quick moves between the workplaces here.

I had never seen RL photo's from India , so I enjoyed your post very much Gerold . Not on my bucket list , but maybe in the next life . :):rolleyes::D

Cheers

I can get you lots of other photos, nice or not-so-lovely. But seeing a picture from a well-climated safe chair is something else than going around.

I agree, for touristic reasons India is not yet famous, but it is a democratic, safe and civilized country, should be on the bucket list for one of the next lifes ahead of other places.

Very intresting compare shots!

Thank you, Jury. The vector & mesh data prove to be surprisingly good here, we would not expect that much from landclass or autogen. And for sure, details like the old soviet-built submarine would only come up if someone makes Vizak city a full fat region...
