  1. Hi all, thanks for the kind wishes and words, much appreciated! Cheers, Holger
  2. Hi Michael, See https://forum.orbxdirect.com/topic/217052-qq-about-the-coming-nz-world-update/?do=findComment&comment=1832634 Cheers, Holger
  3. Hi all, thanks for the kind wishes and words, much appreciated! Cheers, Holger
  4. Hi Carlos, one of the towers in Landmarks Dubai. It's in the middle of the cluster of highrises shown in the video at ~1:35min in: https://youtu.be/UD67_Xrpp7U?t=95 Cheers, Holger
  5. Hi guys, actually, Rapa Nui/Easter Island is, geographically speaking, part of Polynesia, which in turn is one of the subregions of Oceania. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_Island While it's a special territory of Chile, it's not part of South America, just like Guam (US unincorporated territory) wouldn't be considered part of North America. Cheers, Holger
  6. Hi there, it's part of Landmarks Panama and primarily benefits owners of that product. Our aerial ground imagery for the northern locks of the canal clashes with the maximum file sizes (and file structures) allowed for Marketplace products so we decided to make it available separately. If you don't have Landmarks Panama (on either Orbx Direct or the MS Marketplace) you're welcome to install it. It'll improve the local ground imagery but lacks everything else that's included with the product. If you purchase Landmarks Panama on the Marketplace you should also install this package to complete the product. Cheers, Holger
  7. Hi there, actually, the grandstand complex has been modeled with custom buildings plus there are animated racehorses going around on weekends. Cheers, Holger
  8. Hi there, I've re-uploaded cvx_FTX-SCA_FSDT-KLAS_compatibility_v2.zip into the first post in that thread, hopefully it works now. Cheers, Holger
  9. Hi Lt. Bran, working on it as quickly as we can. Adjusting hundreds of objects and polygons to match the new photogrammetry content is a major undertaking. Landmarks Adelaide was rather straightforward by comparison Cheers, Holger
  10. Hi guys, thank you so much for the wishes and kind words! My first birthday in the southern hemisphere so it's been warm and sunny for a change ;-) Plenty of new and exciting projects in the works -- stay tuned! Cheers, Holger
  11. Hi there, Blue Marble only replaces the default coarse-resolution global satellite resolution image with a better-quality version. That's the image that only ever gets displayed outside of the inner circle of landclass cenery, as in your screenshot. It doesn't actually alter the coding of how seasons work. OpenLC also doesn't alter the distribution of seasons so what you're seeing is the mismatched interplay between Blue Marble and the default seasons file. In other words, your screenshot should look the same with or without openLC. There is no connection between that global seasons file, which sets the local season for landclass files on an approx. sq-km basis, and the global satellite imagery (default or Blue Marble), which simply switches on the first of each month. Cheers, Holger
  12. Hi there, there is no separate placement file for the custom objects in Frankfurt, they are all in a couple of _PLC_ files in \FTX_EU\FTX_EU_GES_05_SCENERY\scenery. Your options are to exclude them individually with a tool like ADE or SBuilderX, or, if you know how to do it, decompile the placement file and remove the Frankfurt buildings before recompiling. The latter approach would be pretty tedious though as the xml files work with GUID codes rather than object names. Cheers, Holger
  13. Hi there, so I checked Cape Town's default Bing ortho, wondering whether perhaps it had been updated since we released Landmarks Cape Town. It hasn't, it's still the same typical coarse Bing imagery, which is why we licensed and created the custom orthoimagery in the first place. Here's a random location in the port. While our ortho may not be a huge improvement it's definitely noticeable. Also has less shadows baked in than the default, which is particularly noticeable on Table Mountain. In any case, if you prefer the default you can simple rename or remove "sai231.cgl", in \orbx-landmarks-cape-town-city-pack\CGL\300. Note that there will be slight discrepancies in the object placements compared to the default Bing ortho. Also, in our custom ortho we've removed the footprints of vessels in the harbour and made other enhancements throughout, which you will lose by deactivating the CGL. Cheers, Holger
  14. Hi there, indeed, all our FTX regions have a set of exclusion files that cover the entire area. If removed or deactivated, this will lead to tons of duplications and other display issues across the product's coverage area. With typically several hundred airports per region, it's just not feasible to cut "windows" in the area-wide exclusions for each airport and then create separate exclusion files for it. Probably wouldn't be particularly performance-friendly either. In other words, sorry but there's only one set of excludes to rule them all ;-) Cheers, Holger
  15. Hi there, glad you're enjoying our Brisbane renditions! The two products -- YBBN and Landmarks -- differ in their extent and features between the platforms. For P3D, the airport includes riverside detail from the Gateway Bridges east, including Fisherman Island, while the Landmarks product covers the downtown area west of the bridges. For MSFS, the Landmarks product wraps all around the YBBN area and includes the port and riverside industrial areas, while YBBN is focused on the airport itself. Cheers, Holger
