Having said that, I wouldn't mind having the option of fall or even bare trees as an option with summer textures.

 

You will have.:)

Hi,

 

"There is a poll still underway on the forums" I could not find it, could I get the link if it is still on going?

 

Happy new Year to all,

Ivan

Will the new HD Buildings be the Autogen Buildings ?

 

The Alaska autogen looks so ridiculous I switch it off.

 

If autogen could be designed for specific areas, you would sell tons !

 

Good luck. Looking good.

 

But please don't forget Jersey and Guernsey, and consider a few more UK regionals, like Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Leeds Bradford.

 

At the moment regionals that blend in properly with seasonal variations in the OrbX regions, are sadly non-existent. You would sell a shed load, and if they existed, more people would purchase the regions !

This has always been the case as fat back as FSX.  P3D4.4 now supports multiple autogen files meaning autogen from different developers can work happily alongside each other (at last!) :)

So can I happily install FraceVFR Paris without causing a mess? B)

Great update, thanks!

 

Delighted to see progress about OpenLC and the HD buildings! SODE, Channel Islands, Norway... good stuff there!

 

Here's one wish I have for 2019:

@John Venema Now that ORBX will be using SODE, could you PLEASE develop a SODE controlled windsock so that you can finally ditch those ugly default windsocks spread out over all your airports? SODE allows for functional windsocks showing strength and direction, while being beautifully animated. Other developers have done this and it is fantastic, would suit your airports very well, especially the small GA airfields where one parks and taxies literally next to the windsock.

 

Oh and I still have that dream about an FTX Switzerland region ;)

 

All the best for 2019,

Markus

 

 

I will echo this... I currently use ORBX in our flight training and the static/non-functional windsocks are a bit... weird. Would definitely be a great thing to have! (Especially for airports without weather reporting)

It is too bad that Aerofly FS2 is just an after thought, was hoping to hear some better news for 2019.  I understand the reasoning, you produce what will sell the most product.  But it still hurts to see Aerofly FS2 on the bottom of the list.  Aerofly FS2 will get better over time with greater number of players, just hope I am still around to see it.

Happy New Year to the P3D and X plane crowd it looks like you are in for a treat in 2019

Any love for the NE region of the US on the way?  I recall that, years ago, you were planning on a Maritimes region that would dip as far down as Massachusetts.  It seems like a great majority of your development of US scenery is for the Pacific area... Is there any reason that the development of scenery in the east is so disproportionately small?

 

Thanks,

See two NEEDS for 2019....a larger hard drive and more money in the wallet.  Great job Orbx.  Looking forward to the new releases!

Hi

 

This is a question for John and the Orbx Team. I did mention over Xmas. I am a big fan of the Pacific Northwest area and spend much of my time flying around it. I think, but may be wrong that Orbx hinted of a release for TrueEarth PNW in 2018. I know the team have been very busy so am not complaining, but would like to be cheeky and ask when they plan for its release. I'm not looking for dates or times, but would be happy with a reply such as, early, mid or late 2019. :D

Hi,

 

Nick, you told me a while back orbx doesn’t focus on large US airports.  I see kmco is coming in orlando city scenes. Looks nice, Disney details.   

 

I request 2 things for consideration: 

1- port City Scenes to X-Plane Mac compatible 

 

2- make a WW2 themed airfield in Europe. The new EGTR was a war field but it doesn’t include period pieces. Would love to fly a Spitfire into an accurately made field. 

 

Thanks. Please reply addressing both

2019 is all about TE regions in the USA!

 

TE PNW will be split into Washington and Oregon, and then maybe BC if we can license ortho for it. Washington will be done by about May-June and Oregon July-August. We will then do Northern and Southern California before heading back to Europe in 2020.

We will do TE regions on the east coast of the US in 2020.

Thanks for the detailed reply, better start saving my pennies. I hope you have success with the BC data.

Any insight if TE PNW will release for XP or P3d first?

 

All TE region development is happening on XP11 first at present, purely because our new tools are made to produce XP11 output. We are working on introducing processes that will allow output to P3D in a semi automated fashion.

So I need to budget and get my wallet ready for later this year through 2020! ORBX you got my vote again and again! Looking forward to the East Coast as well.
