First ever 100% PBR airport coming to P3D/XP11

Recommended Posts

Looking very good and looking forward to the release and probably getting it for maybe Xplane first. Mmmmm now I wonder which Airport it could be. Derek.

Incredible detail.

May I ask if there will be P3D, XP version start points for this technology & the new airports? 

ie, you will need P3D v4.4 & onwards in P3D?

& for XP?

This workflow allows us to release for both P3Dv4 and XP11 at the same time, or near enough to the same time, scheduling permitting.[...]

Very promising this workflow.
If everything happens as planned, it will really be a major improvement in production efficiency for both simulators.

Good luck to the team.;)

two screenshots which highlight the details not only on the ground services equipment but also on the apron on which they sit.

 

Question for you. Can PBR be done on generic runway and apron textures in P3D? Reason I ask is it would be great to fly into any airport and see some level of PBR on all runways and aprons.

Interesting, can this technology be retro fitted to existing Airports or would they need to be built again from scratch ?

You cannot retro-fit PBR. It is an integral part of the core design process and adds at least 25% more development time. For this reason our 100% PBR airports will carry a premium price tag.

Looks fantastic! Glad I'm on this bus!

I'm also glad I am a bit older and have seen the evolution of flight sims since the beginning. 

Change and advances used to come so slowly. Remember how long it took until we could fill our screens with autogen without a slideshow happening?

Times they are a changin' - on this technological hyperbolic curve that we are on.

That suggests airports not previously given the OrbX treatment, or does it? B)

If you haven't zoomed in on these images the you're not fully seeing the incredible level of detail. Not just the vehicles but the white lines also. They look 3D when zoomed in.

Very nice! I also think it is London City airport. Compare gate 9 to Google Maps :)

I think you'll find its actually gate 6 ;)

If so, BUG REPORT: the dashed yellow line into the gate is possibly slightly misrepresented...

Its a dead give away.

 

Keep in mind that we don´t know how old Google Map imagery is. Maybe ORBX´s is simply more up to date and therefor correct. 

 

Anyhow, very much looking forward to it.

I don't regret any second bought an RTX 2080TI! It is worth more and more everytime I see such amazing pictures! Things like PBR will be the future in P3D and these methods implemented into the sim will cure the disadvantage of the ESP single core CPU-engine.

There is a benefit to the rtx cores in the rtx 20xx, but soon gtx will get raytracing implemented. But you don't need rtx to use pbr or see it's effects.

For the moment this could be right, but who knows the future of P3D? Getting the look and feel like XPlane e.g. there is still to do a little bit.

By the way, upgrading from GTX1080TI to RTX2080TI gaves me a great performanceimprovement, especially for DR and SSAA-Settings. Everything is nearly maxed out with a great performance and visuals; in the darkness too of course. Even with texture_size_exp=10 setting.

Well, I have to say... that looks impressive...! Totally awesome! Terrible shame we will not see effects like these in the sim itself and older addons... If you get used to airports with these effects the rest of the sim will start to look outdated.

The airport is praobably identified as EGLC. Since this airport was already confirmed as a new airport and the only one of the new slot in the south, this seems to be a pretty certain bet.

Hint on location please?   It looks awesome, glad orbx is going the PBR way!

Would you mind looking upon any of the previous posts?

 

Kind regards, Michael

All these and more were mentioned on the 2019 roadmap so can be either of them

ENBO Bodø
KDAL Dallas Love Field

Could be. But as I linked to a aerial photograph of the exact gate in google maps it should be not hard to see that the markings are a complete match.

I don't see how one needs to guess any further.
