  2. We are proud to announce the second US TrueEarth region - the state of Oregon! Following on from Washington, TrueEarth US Oregon has been developed from highly detailed 10m Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and LiDAR data resulting in realism and accuracy that is hard to ignore. Affectionately known as The Beaver State, Oregon boasts some of the most scenic views in the USA. From the lush forests in the east, to the dry deserts and mountains of the west, Oregon contains a variety of landscapes which we have faithfully depicted in this package. Our X-Plane team has worked hard to create an immersive and picturesque region that any pilot can appreciate. We have gone all out in customizing TrueEarth US Oregon - you will really see the difference in the hand corrected and sharpened aerial imagery and water masking at 2m per pixel. We have also customized the autogen buildings, which means the residential areas for example are filled with actual Oregon-style houses. The tree and building heights are also accurate to the region. What really sets TrueEarth Oregon apart though, are the Points of Interest. All of our POIs were designed using PBR (physically-based rendering) which means that they will glint and reflect sun and rain - of which there is plenty in this part of the world! Of special note to aviation fans is the Tillamook Air Museum which features a giant US Navy blimp hangar! Portland has been massively overhauled as you can see in the slider image below. It has been given the Orbx CityScape treatment resulting in a stunning urban experience. We have also enhanced major cities and towns such as Eugene, Corvallis, and Salem. We have been collating feedback from you, and are offering you two options for purchase: TrueEarth US Oregon HD - AUD$64.95 The High Definition (HD) version of TrueEarth Oregon uses 1.2m/pixel (ZL17) orthoimagery and takes 225GB disk space when uncompressed by Orbx Central (similar to Washington). This version is better suited to those of you who have a video card with more than 8GB and ample disk storage space. This provides slightly more detailed imagery below 2000FT for those who like to fly low and slow. If you purchase this version, you will also get the SD version below for free. TE USA Oregon SD - AUD$54.95 The Standard Definition (SD) version of TrueEarth Oregon uses 2.4m/pixel (ZL16) sharpened orthoimagery and takes 63GB disk space and no decompression is used by Orbx Central. This version is better suited to customers with video cards less than 8GB. This allows the texture slider to be set to 'Max' resulting in imagery almost the same quality as the HD version, but using 1/4 of the disk space.If you decide to upgrade to the HD version at a later time, you can do so for AUD$10. And now for the screenshots - please note these are all taken with the HD pack installed: Newport Portland Tillamook Tillamook Air Museum North Bend Summer Lake Crater Lake National Park
  3. 2W3 Swanson Airport is here for X-Plane 11! This little hub has been created and transformed into a detailed corner of paradise! Swanson Airport is virtually non-existent in default X-Plane, so this by far is the best way to experience 2W3 in all its glory. Swanson is a quaint little airfield in Eatonville (the entire town is included in this package!) surrounded by residential areas - some of the houses even have their own airstrips. The airport includes static aircraft and vehicles as well as custom buildings. Beyond the airport itself, you will find the stunning Lake Ohop which is renowned in the area among watersport and fishing enthusiasts. I don't know about you, but we would move there in a heartbeat! 2W3 Swanson Airport fits seamlessly into TrueEarth US Washington and is a must-have addition to your X-Plane PNW collection! **You need to use Orbx Central to install this product.

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
  4. Continuing with our TrueEarth US Washington compatible airports for X-Plane, we are bringing you 2W3 Swanson Airport. 2W3 is a quaint airfield with residents living in their houses on both sides of the runway, some of them with private hangars and aircraft. What a lifestyle! This version comes with custom modelled airport, houses, static aircraft and also includes photoreal coverage of Ohop Lake - Eatonsville's number one watersport destination! We have painstakingly recreated Swanson Airport based on actual photos taken onsite as well as from a helicopter visit and fly-past. Using superb 60cm region and 15cm airfield digital imagery, we have brought Swanson Airport to life for X-Plane 11 down to the smallest detail. Don't forget, 2W3 works best in conjunction with TrueEarth US Washington. Features: 60cm and 15cm per pixel Airport and houses modeled 3D modelled groundpoly incl. runway and aprons Photoreal coverage incl.

  17. BuildingsHD for P3D and FSX: On Final Approach! The long-awaited next installment in the HD series is almost here! BuildingsHD overhauls the autogen buildings throughout the world with all-new, 4K, regionally-accurate textures and FPS-friendly 3D models. What TreesHD did for vegetation, BuildingsHD does for your sim’s structures: It replaces the old, default textures and models with beautiful, authentic, highly detailed new ones to lend a new depth of realism to the landscape across the globe. Buzzing the rooftops, approaches over cities, and taxiing at urban airports has never looked so real, with textures four times more detailed than before! All new textures feature ambient occlusion shadows, stunning new night lighting, high-rez rooftops derived from drone photography, and more. We’ve pulled out all the stops to really take the autogen system to a whole new level! A monumental undertaking three years in the making, lead developer Scott Armstrong has painstakingly overhauled over 900 texture sheets, containing 3,860 individual building textures. During project development, Scott traveled to over a dozen countries throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia to take on-location source photos, resulting in remarkably authentic architectural variations. The difference is especially apparent in Global regions which have never before seen the full Orbx region treatment: Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and South America now, for the first time ever, feature buildings that are highly accurate to their true-life counterparts. Additionally, FS legend Bill Womack has lent his 3D modelling skills in completely overhauling over 400 3D models in the default 3D building library! Those clunky-looking low-poly default water towers, generic fast food restaurants, apartment buildings, and blurry-looking factories will be replaced with brand new beautiful models that are at once highly detailed and performance-optimized. Barns, religious structures, shopping malls, gas stations, and more have been redone to blend in with the new textures (Note – OrbxLibs buildings will not be modified). Paris, France Madrid, Spain Prague, Czech Republic Library Object - Retail Buildings Phoenix, United States Santiago, Chile Sydney, Australia BuildingsHD Feature List High-Definition building textures at 4K resolution covering the entire world Regionally accurate buildings worldwide, derived from on-location photos taken in many countries throughout the globe Brand new 3D building models for complex autogen objects, created by Bill Womack Ambient Occlusion shadows baked on to building textures for added depth and realism High resolution rooftops derived from drone photos Incredibly realistic night textures for an immersive new night flying experience Designed to work seamlessly with all Orbx products, including Global, all openLC products, regions, and airports; or without any other Orbx products installed Completely compatible with FSX, FSX:SE and P3Dv1-v4 Easy download and installation in Orbx Central By Scott Armstrong and Bill Womack FAQ Q. Which buildings will BuildingsHD improve? A. BuildingsHD improves the appearance of autogen buildings worldwide. Autogen buildings consist of the generic houses, office buildings, apartments, and various complex 3D buildings, which constitute the vast majority of buildings seen worldwide in the sim. However, it will NOT improve the custom POI objects of various individual real-world buildings that are included with FSX and P3D (usually consisting of the tallest several buildings or most famous landmarks in major cities throughout the world), nor will it affect the appearance of airport buildings. Q. Will BuildingsHD change the geometry of the default autogen buildings to make them more detailed? A. BuildingsHD will greatly increase the texture fidelity of the default buildings, but it will not alter the 3D geometry of most simple autogen structures (such as houses, most office buildings, etc). However, it will replace the more complex default autogen models such as water towers, restaurants, religious structures, complex office buildings, and shopping centers seen sporadically throughout the landscape with more detailed, realistic 3D models. Q. Will BuildingsHD increase the regional variation seen in buildings throughout the world? A. No. BuildingsHD modifies existing textures and models to make them more regionally accurate, but it will not increase the variation of building types beyond what already exists within the sim and the Orbx product catalog. Q. How will BuildingsHD affect my sim’s performance? A. Testing thus far has not shown a significant impact on FPS. However, due to the increased size of the new textures, a modern graphics card with ample VRAM is recommended. Compatibility BuildingsHD is designed to work with all versions of FSX and P3D, and will work seamlessly with all current Orbx products. If you don’t own any other Orbx products, BuildingsHD will also function as a standalone program and will work with a default installation of FSX/P3D. BuildingsHD will replace the current building textures and default autogen.bgl library objects for most Orbx products, including: Global OpenLC Europe, North America, and South America All currently available P3D/FSX regions EXCEPT TrueEarth Great Britain South, TrueEarth Netherlands, EU Germany North, and EU Germany South (these regions come pre-packaged with their own custom detailed autogen buildings). Pricing Orbx BuildingsHD will be available exclusively via OrbxDirect for AUD $34.95 (approx. USD $24.25/ €21.50 / £19.00). BuildingsHD is now entering the final stages of testing, and we are working diligently towards release. While we finish up the remaining work, please enjoy these screenshots!

  20. CAE3 Campbell River Water Aerodrome is now available to download for Prepar3D v3 & v4! CAE3 Campbell River Water Aerodrome was said to be the busiest seaplane base in the world during the 1970’s. It’s not so busy now but instead has the character that no polished facility can match. No PA system with that well modulated voice you can’t understand. A look at the odds and ends on the seaplane docks tells you that it’s a working SPB. CAE3 is located on Tyee Spit at the mouth of Campbell River just north of the centre of the city by the same name. It is the home of Corilair, Grizzly Helicopters,Vancouver Island Air and West Coast Helicopters . Campbell River, the “Salmon Fishing Capital of the World” and in particular Tyee Spit are famous for the salmon fishing. At Tyee Pool the fishing is done from rowboats which you will find modeled in the scenery. The city of Campbell River lies at the junction of the more populated southern part of Vancouver Island and the mostly undeveloped northern half. It has the feeling of a little bit of both. Key Features All of Tyee Spit as a large model, including Corilair, Grizzly Helicopters, Vancouver Island Air, West Coast Helicopters, associated docks and other buildings.
