  1. I tried Nick's suggestion and sadly it didn't work for me. London Landmarks disabled for now which seems to be the culprit when flying from EGLC.
  2. Yes having the same problem. However it's not Orbx EGLC per-say which is the issue. It appears to be Orbx London Landmarks. I tried EGLC on it's own and loading into that airport was fine, but EGLC and London landmarks and it crashes. But here's the odd thing. if you fly from an airport outside London I.e. Southend or even the one closer say at Ruislip then London Landmarks loads fine, it's just loading in using London Landmarks when flying from EGLC that causes the crash. Delete London Landmarks for now and you'll be fine.
  3. It's already in today's development update, so I'm expecting it to be in the store soon if it's not in already. https://www.flightsimulator.com/july-15th-2021-development-update/
  4. Lovely shots Iain, I have to say the lighting you guys can produce in this sim is exquisite, especially the bridges over the river.
  5. Well then you are lucky, I have to delete Asobo Innsbruck after the USA and UK World Updates otherwise it clashes with the Orbx one.
  6. There are some absolutely amazing free airports for MSFS. Still as a french person you must be looking forward to the Benelux update next month - there will be some more high quality airports there.
  7. No just what I've seen. I just thought the balance and intensity over the entire city scape looked better in Cloudsurf's version than Orbx which was much more understated. Very much a personal opinion - both products look great!
  8. Looking absolutely gorgeous. You guys are getting really good at this! Runway textures look fantastic, infact the texture work throughout looks phenomenal. I love the usual high attention to detail for the landside which really seems to have taken off in this sim. Probaby because developers have more bandwitdh to add more custom objects and it really shows.
  9. Yes a hearty congratulations to Cloudsurf Asia for this really nice addon to MSFS. For such a big airport you've added so much detail and the Jewel building is a wonderful show-off feature of this airport which as it deserves looks fantastic at night. The city scenery looks great too but there might be some competition around - still I think your city night lighting looks better!
  10. Fantastic modelling of Paris. Looking forward to this coming out soon. Orbx are setting a high bar with these cityscapes, some other developers have tried to create 100+ buildings but the quality drops off drmatically. This is an outstanding effort by the team, well done.
  11. Yep I'll vote for those two, but after these screenshots I want a London 2.0 haha! Hong Kong is already available from Samscene but I have to say I was a little dissappointed - I do think the base MSFS scenery doesn't help, it's a very challenging area to get right with the topology and buildings, not an easy task but I'm sure somebody will step up to the plate do this city justice.
  12. Just had a look at this and it looks great. I love how DD have blended the buildings in with the photogrammetry instead of some developers who have just flattened the area and built models on top of it. My only critique would be the night lighting with looks ok but is a bit to overley done and perhaps should be toned down a little?
  13. Highly recommend getting this scenery, it's amazing and if you know London at all you will definately appreciate the 100's of custom models lining the banks of the Thames and many more further afield. As a Londoner this is an absolutely terrifc job by Orbx. Also you must get Orbx EGLC which complements the London Landmarks wonderfully. I really wouldn't worry about the UK update. They are adding 60 POI's and if they do clash with Orbx's work like adding Wembley Staduim I'm sure that will be addressed in a later patch as this product is also being sold on the official MSFS Marketplace.
  14. This does look interesting. I don't want to be a humbug at Christmas but I can just set these up using the custom options in game right? Can somebody explain what this actually means?
  15. They sound like Cityscapes to me. Pardon me for mentioning another developer I do humble apologize but I think FlyTampa has you covered for Las Vegas.
  16. Regarding Landmark London City, I noticed the release notes for 1.1.0 has been released on the Marketplace but the product itself is still at 1.0.1 because the sim needs updating - which I've tried to do to no avail. I have no idea what's going on, hopefully somebody will sort it.
  17. Yeah it's been 6 weeks now LOL. Sydney was released on the 8th of October. Not sure Orbx can do anything - they confirmed the files was submitted to Microsoft on the 12th October. I'm going to propose this to MS in there next Dev Q and A. I really don't know whats going on there, Dundee which looks fantastic by the way! was released by Orbx on the 14th of November and in less than a week it's on the Microsoft Marketplace (anounced today).
  18. LOL my bad! These posts should be archived, I had a look because it came up in the discussion thread!
  19. I'm affraid the answer here is MSFS. New Zeland could work, Austrailia is too big - the value in return for curating vast areas of land is prohibatively small I think unless you focus on smaller areas around Melbourne, Sydney but for TE to be viable do they provide the type of diversity of a PNW? I think you are better off with the cityscapes for these areas.
  20. Hi B12 The article was in PCPilot for an interview with John Venema, fortunately there is a link on the internet. Sorry in my head I thought it was the Scottish Government - I do appologise - the article references a supplier but doesn't say. I think the point being was at the time it was financially not viable to source higher resolution DEM data for Scotland, maybe that situation has changed though. http://dl.magazinedl.com/magazinedl/PC Pilot/2020/PC Pilot - January-February 2020(magazinedl.com).pdf John Venema:Some of the data for the UK is hard to license, such as the nice 10m/pixel elevation mesh for Scotland which a supplier wanted £50,000 for! We also sometimes find it hard to get tree data, which means for much of Scotland we have had to hire junior developers to hand-mark the locations of all the trees in Edinburgh and other cities. This will be rolled out in a service pack. The same applies to Northern California. We actually ended up downloading terabytes of LIDAR data [a very accurate model of the earth’s surface - Ed] and using our own in-house code to create tree-height data - not a trivial task! Again appologies for the confusion Dave.
  21. I think it's more of a question of what the roadmap holds for existing packages coming to MSFS. I think we would all like to see some of the TrueEarth magic sprinkled on to MSFS even if this is only landmarks. Asobo themselves I'm hoping will come to Europe and Scotland soon. One thing which is a real shame was the Scotish government license for higher resolution DEM data and Orbx not paying to get it (which I completely understand). I certainly hope that Scottish DEM data can be sourced above what I already have in X-Plane, it would make the world of difference.
  22. Looks like some messages have got clean up in this thread, including one of mine, if I offended anybody with my tennis post, I am sorry.
  23. You are comparing a regional scenery addon to an airport so I guess wouldn't it be up to Orbx discretion if they should include scenery outside the airport? Or are you saying the Cookridge Tower comes with the EGNM for X-Plane and not TrueEarth pack? There probably is some overlap, I know EGLC for example comes with quite a bit of surrounding scenery like Excel and Tate & Lyle Sugars building which really add to the authencitiy.
