EGTF Fairoaks Airport is coming to X-Plane 11!

 

Set in the beautiful English countryside of Surrey, The developers have captured the amazing surroundings with on-site photography and excellent high resolution photo real imagery. Every fine detail has been captured from the airport buildings to the McLaren Technology Centre, a stunning modern architectural building. Affectionately nicknamed "Dolly's Farm" for the piece of land upon which the airport was built back in 1931, Fairoaks Airport is a must-have for your UK X-Plane collection!

 

Key Features

  • Amazing 7 cm per pixel resolution for the airfield area
  • Countryside at 30 cm resolution
  • Realistic PAPI approach lights and runway end lights
  • Realistic HD textures created from on-site photography
  • McLaren Technology Centre and Vehicle Production Factory

 

EGTF will soon be available to purchase from OrbxDirect for AUD $24.95 (approx. USD $17.78 / €15.59 / £13.97).  Remember that if you own EGTF for FSX/P3D, you get 40% off the X-Plane version!

 

Please note that you will require Orbx Libraries updated and installed to version 1.45 which is also now available. MacOS/Linux users will have the latest libraries included in the cross-platform download available from your account page.

 

Please also note that for the best experience, we recommend using EGTF in conjunction with TrueEarth Great Britain South. The scenery will work without it, however some users may experience the following:

  • Missing or misplaced forests
  • Missing or misplaced buildings surrounding the airport
  • Photoreal blending
  • Lack of accuracy in approach vectors

 

Here are some screeshots from Emmsie - enjoy!

I see that there is no limit to the number of times that you will post the same question.:(

The product is in testing and when released will work as it should.

The other two products will be updated to address the issue, as you have already

been told many times.

Their fixes have been done and it remains only to test them before release.

Hi 

 

An other great release coming soon for X Plane 11 which I have already got for P3D. I know most of these are ported over for use in X Plane but are we going to see any new small ish type airfields from Orbx for the north of the country. With TE central released and Scotland on its way, at least a few to compliment all the hard work wouldn't go a miss.

We plan to release at least 4-5 brand new UK airports in 2019 for simultaneous P3D/XP11 release, full PBR support, and mostly in the midlands/north of the the UK, apart from one.

Nope, we tried to engage with Ben Supnik on boned animations and even offered the source files for PeopleFlow2 but it never went very far.

 

It's really down to Laminar as to what is more important to them. I guess they are focusing on the Vulkan work right now.

Hi John.

 

Great news thanks

Looks fantastic, just as all the others do so far in XPlane. And the True Earth areas have reached a lofty pinnacle of flight sim scenery.

I am baffled at the accuracy of everything. My only wish is to darken the roads a tad, I heard that was in the works?

What a wonderful achievement for Tony and the team at Orbx!

I salute you all and thank you very much.

Great to see a steady flow of airports for the UK from P3D and also the news of the new ones for this year being simultaneous releases to make both lots of users happy.:)
