Smiley Vector now!:)

I've flown quite a bit around Bogota with makeshift add-on scenery & your shots leave that for dead John.

Another excellent set.

Any chance of a look at Machupicchu?

 

Also, 2nd shot down - is that open cast mining??

Hey, my home town is in these pics! I can almost see my house, hehehe :D

 

Do I detect a distinction between "formal" neighborhoods and slums? Definitely makes me want to explore it at depth when it is released.

 

One thing: the Catia La Mar side of the mountains is typically more arid than the Caracas side (though right now we're well into the rainy season, so the difference isn't that sharp).

Hi ORBX! 

Great job! Well done.... just a quick note.. in the River Plate area around Buenos Aires and Uruguay coast, the water is brown.. only when it merges with the ocean, it gets blue. 
Thank you for your kind attention!
Happy Landing!

Bogota - Columbia

I hate to be that guy, but I am compelled. I have Colombian heritage and the country is spelled Colombia and not Columbia. Nice pics by the way.

Nice shots.

 

The one from Buenos Aires is not Buenos Aires properly, is at the north of the city, in the San Isidro district, that is part of "Gran Buenos Aires" but not the city.

 

Just right here: https://www.google.com.ar/maps/@-34.4477297,-58.5066248,15z

 

The fact that is easily to recognize the exact place where the photo is taken is great. Nice job. :)

 

Buenos Aires is some kilometers at the south-east of that shot.

 

I would love to see a shot of Buenos Aires taken 2 kilometers south-east from SABE (inside the city), where is the real city center.

You're right! I have big expectations, but I also know that it's impossible to have all that I want! :D

 

I'm happy because I know that ORBX is the best Team to make this job.

 

Buenos Aires as many cities is really heterogeneous on each district or neighborhood. And on South America, that differences are more notables because the inequality.

 

The land class for "city" seems to be the very similar. But I need to see for myself the release product to talk.

 

Is not the same the ultra-dense working class places from the south of the city, to the mid-class calm places, or the "inside city" ultra-dense blocks of 8-10 floors buildings of middle class, or, in the case of that shot, a place (San Isidro / San Fernando) that is very low dense (the whole district has 50.000 habitats) and is one of the more expensive real state places on BA. If you see that shoot, you can see the that all the coast are marinas, Yacht Clubs or directly million dollar homes with marinas.

 

Likely for all the South American cities you must need several land class for cities.

 

Is a real challenge, and I really think that is almost impossible to recreate for any team but ORBX is the most competent. Maybe with a serious and positive feedback from the local users, we can achieve a well-balanced product on the detail side on the most important cities. I promise to offer my feedback in the best way in order to help to ORBX to correct errors that I can detect.

Hey Rodri, I agree 100% with you, but i think your suggestions are more suitable for a "fullfat region". I dont know, maybe i'm not as picky as you (in a good sense), but i'm just happy by not seeing snow in the middle of Santa Fe :D

 

Hopefully the team will take your suggestions :)

You're right. I know perfectly the concept of openLC versus the more detailed regions.

 

Is awesome to see how with this openLC the places are perfectly recognizable. I can see a screenshot and say "this place is just the golf course in XX street" or "this lake is in XX park".

 

That's million years light better than the vanilla scenery simulator.

 

I don't want to be picky, hahaha, I'm just a huge ORBX fan and I have big expectation on this product.

Hey TTM - do you have any mesh recommendations for Colombia?

In P3D v3.4 I am using Pilot's FS Global Ultimate mesh for The America's.

I haven't loaded any mesh into V4 yet as I have found the native mesh acceptable so far.

Waiting to see how OLC S. America looks before deciding whether to add mesh as it can take up a chunk of SSD. 

I suspect my monitor hasn't the sharpness to let FS Global show a noticeable improvement in terrain over the LM/Orbx combos, let alone my eyesight being good enough to discern a big difference.:unsure:
