there are some features missing due to the inefficiency of the original 3D models and how they were implemented originally.

Also many of the source materials were not organised in source folders correctly and files were missing meaning some features may be absent.

Finally, the imagery we have licensed is from a different supplier, as we were not able to to transfer the original imagery license that was purchased by ES for their version. This means the imagery is not as crisp as the original, but still quite sufficient.

 

 

Can you tell us which features 'may' be missing please? What's the difference in imagery resolution please?

Much appreciated John, I've been waiting for this for a long time...Guernsey and Jersey next please! Merry Christmas to all at ORBX, and all my fellow ORBXeteers!

Thanks to you all!

If there are 'missing items', how will we know? Will we actually care? What the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve.

Thanks once again JV and Team, have a truly wonderful Christmas,

People may have used the original ES scenery. some features were more obvious than others.  Unless you know what is missing, it's impossible to know how relevant they may be to anyone. It is highly subjective ofc!  My question wasn't a moan at all as I'll undoubtedly pick it up regardless, I was just curious :)

Bonzer, John!

 

How did you know I like hopping around this set of historic, charismatic (and monied) islands?

 

So: Birmingham-Southampton-Alderney ………......…..Vertx DA62 should look the part ….it's a 'beaut'!

If you're not able to control your plane....yes!

Hi,

 

Thank you for still considering us FSX users with this!   A big thank you!

 

If you do Guernsey and Jersey too, I will definately drop the UK2000 scenery version of Jersey and buy yours!

 

Thank you again John.   And it was great to see you at Cosford!

 

Take care,

 

regards,

 

Lee

I just bought and installed Alderney into my system...what a beautiful add-on this is! The scenery, town buildings and layout, airport features, even horses corralled near the airport! Breathtaking and the performance on my old system is spectacular.

Are the textures seasonal  please (I don't believe the Earth Simulations original was)?

What is the resolution (GSD) of the orthophotography (ground textures)?

 

Many thanks :)

Ah, my mistake! ORBX state they had to use different orthos though, due to licensing, so I wonder if the "new" version is still 30cm and seasonal?

I very much doubt it, the origin imagery was licenced from the Jersey government.  I attempted years ago to source similar imagery to complete a Jersey scenery but the terms and conditions insisted upon wereruinous, so I completely understand why Orbx used different imagery.  I think they used 1mpp...
