Hereby via my arrival at Brisbane airport(YBBN) and visit to the City......+ Bonus : Bonus = Nightviews of Adelaide City
  2. G'day all, I am absolutely delighted to unveil one of our most ambitious airport projects to date; LOWI Innsbruck Airport for X-Plane 11! After 18 months of development and R&D from Vittorio Greco, Tony Wroblewski and myself, our award-winning airport has been brought XP11. An airport that needs no introduction, Innsbruck is one of the world's great aviation destinations. Dramatically stunning terrain, beautiful architecture, and of course one of the most infamously challenging approaches in the world, Innsbruck is a destination that is instantly recognisable to aviators of all stripes. Whether you are a seasoned jet jockey looking to hone your skills, a GA flyer looking for your next high-brow scenic joyflight, or an eggbeater expert seeking out the next challenging helipad, Innsbruck has it all. For those of you who have enjoyed this airport in FSX, P3D or AFS2, we have gone to extra lengths to provide you something next-level. Beyond the already massive traditional coverage area, Innsbruck for X-Plane 11 includes a entire 8200km2 mini-region! Beyond the ultra-detailed airport itself, explore a complete cityscene (with over 160 POI), 3 heliports and vast coverage area in complete TrueEarth-style detail. All of this has been created with optimization foremost in mind - explore this scenery with your favourite resource-intensive aircraft without having to stress about performance.

  4. Hi Folks, I seem to be having an issue with CityScene Gold Coast. Some of the buildings included in the package are not showing fully. Basically, parts of the roofs are floating! This issue occurs regardless of whether ORBX YBCG is installed or not.
  5. Flying around CityScene Orlando for the first time yesterday, I found a few issues that should be considered for a future update. So first for the good. My tour consisted of 2 parts; first was a flight into KMCO (from KSTL) in the NGX, with CityScene enabled. Normally I wouldn't have attempted this but I wanted to see the limits of my system. I have to say that performance approaching the Orlando area was admirable; there were only a few points where the sim choked momentarily, and only short periods of time, maybe on the order of 30 seconds, where I had black buildings before things caught up and textures loaded. Landing FPS was a little sluggish; on the order of 18-25 fps but nothing completely unreasonable or precluding a nice smooth landing in the TDZ. (Also consider this was all done with the residential building setting unknowingly ticked; so my performance probably could have been significantly better.) The only glitch was discovering that the Taxi2Gate KMCO taxiway bridges were missing, but a scenery reload seemed to fix that - no idea what that was all about but it would seem to be an issue on my end. All in all, I was quite pleased! Now for the "bad". The second part of my tour was a helicopter tour from KMCO to the I-4 corridor and to the southwest to and around Walt Disney World, then over to downtown Orlando and back to KMCO. Aside from my always suspect helicopter piloting skills, I found a handful of issues. No show stoppers - I suppose with over 200k buildings as claimed, a few glitches are to be expected? DoubleTree Inn Universal Studios (Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/jD2YxeDGaZ32) A few buildings appear to be missing, except for floating fascia wall elements: Odyssey Center, WDW EPCOT (Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/W6ukapf4M7v) Similar to the DoubleTree, there seems to be a building error: Building just west of Cinderella Castle, WDW Magic Kingdom (Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/sGnPY1s14Bp) Another similar problem - part of the building appears to be too short and is missing textures: The Magic Kingdom Skyline This was mentioned by a few in the preview thread but bears repeating here: I measured the heights by slewing in-sim, so they are approximate. The original comments in the preview thread centered around the height relationship between the castle and Space Mountain; they visually "don't look right", but when actually reviewing the heights they appear to be roughly OK - the castle could be made a little taller and Space Mountain a little shorter, but in the scheme of things it's a minor complaint. The Astro Orbiter is grossly out of scale, however. I wasn't able to find a height listed anywhere but based on a Google image search it appears to be somewhere around half the height of the castle. Also, the castle is facing the wrong way! Overall, let it be known that despite the backwards castle, the representation of Walt Disney World earned overall praise from my Disney nut girlfriend. KMCO There's an airplane on short final to RWY 35R. Not really a big deal but thought I would add it to the list:
  6. Hi. I am facing some problems with Orlando CityScene that i've just bought. The scenery simply does not load. It freezes in 6% and nothing more happen. I loaded KTTS default scenery and tried to fly manually to Orlando to see what i could find. When i got close to the City, the textures on the ground were blured and some buildings appered slowly, with a delay from black to the regular texture. FPS got low and the Simulator freezed and closed. I have many orbx sceneries without any problem. I deactivated the Latin VFR scenery and the Orlando Default scenery from my P3d (4.4), but without success. I did try to reinstall like 2 times, but the problem persists. What can i do? Thanks.
  7. Hey there, I recently flew into YBCG Coolangatta / Gold Coast, which I do own from Orbx together with CityScene Gold Coast. The slider setting was the same that I use when I fly to really big payware airports like Toronto or Frankfurt. Nonetheless I experienced really slow loading times. I was approaching runway 32 when I realized that the terrain textures where really blurry, so I paused the simulation. After approximately a minute, skyscrapers belonging to the Gold Coast scenery where popping up in the background, and then, slowly, the textures of the ground in the approach path were sharpening, so that I could press "P" and continue the approach. Framerates were totally OK btw - about 25. While I'm using the PMDG 777, I never encountered such extremely slow loading times in the sim. I can fly to almost any airport in the world with 25+ fps and not get blurries. Is this how it's supposed to be? After all, my rig is good enough to handle big payware airports well - so where could be the problem? Regards Lars
  8. Hi all, I have recently purchased CityScene Barcelona (do you need me to add TransactionID?) and I have noticed Vela Hotel, an iconic hotel in the beach, close to the industrial port, is not available. I also have Aerosoft Barcelona Professional airport installed and I have unselected the Barcelona scenario there and also the Barcelona airport in the CityScene Barcelona configuration. Any advice? Thanks! José

  10. Hi, i just bought and installed the new gold coast CityScene however it seems it hasn't installed properly or something. Popular landmarks such as the Q1 building and Metricon stadium aren't showing up (pictured below) plus the ground textures are extremely blurry and don't really look like the photos from the ORBX website. Cheers.
  11. G'day All, I am delighted to make three introductions to you all; a new member of the Orbx Team, a new line of Orbx Products, and a much-anticipated new scenery project for Australia! Allen Kriesman is a legend of the Flightsim community; a master of his craft for several decades, you will know from his company Scenery Solutions, and highly popular products such as Ultimate Terrain X (UTX). We are delighted to have him on the team; not only will you see new scenery projects from Allen during 2018 and onward, but his technology will be making it's way into many of our other product lines over the coming months. Orbx CityScene is a new line of scenery products that will recreate urban centres and cityscapes around the world in incredible detail. Building upon thousands of hours of R&D over several years, Allen's ground-breaking new technology enables highly-detailed scenery, coupled with highly improved performance and optimisation compared to default city centres. Bypassing traditional autogen methods, buildings correctly replicate unusual footprints, improve on building height and type accuracy, and even add more details for an immersive experience. Vegetation, lighting, terrain, traffic, are all fully integrated. Most importantly, CityScene technology uses next-gen optimisation techniques to ensure the very best performance. The CityScene line will sit alongside bespoke hand-made Cityscapes such as Maurizio's Canberra and Cote d'Azure; likewise some components of this new tech will be utilised in upcoming region and airport products. In short, features you can expect from an Orbx CityScene product: - Highly detailed city and urban landscapes brought to life - Accurate and detailed buildings that go far beyond the limitations of the P3D autogen system - Realistic photoreal/satellite orthoimagery base - Dense and highly-accurate vegetation placement - Road traffic, vector, mesh (DEM) and landclass where required - Full 5 seasons (where applicable) and complete night lighting - Important POI, landmarks and features modeled - Optimised for the best balance between performance and detail CityScene Gold Coast is Allen's first project with Orbx, and recreates the entire City of Gold Coast and surrounds. A long-awaited return to our Australian roots after a hiatus of several years, Goldy has been designed in parallel with Matteo's YBCG Gold Coast International Airport (more news on that soon!). The CityScene captures one of Australia's favourite tourist destinations in complete detail; explore 600 sq km of beautiful beaches, urban landscapes, hotels, towers and waterways. As a bonus, Allen (with the help of Jordan Gough) has included lite renditions of several helipad locations, and Southport Flying Club (YSPT), perfect for launching low-and-slow flights over the coverage area. As Australia's largest non-capital city, Gold Coast has long been famous for it's beaches, surfing and weather. After a massive development boom in the 1980s, the population of the area is now over 600,000, as well as being home to dozens of skyscrapers, including Q1, the tallest building in Australia. The area straddles the New South Wales - Queensland border; Brisbane lies 65km to the north, whilst major NSW regional centres such as Balina, Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie lie just to the south. One of the features of the calendar is the Gold Coast 600 Supercar Motor Event; held in the centre of the city, the event is a launching stage for spectacular aerial displays from the RAAF (recommended flying inspo here, here and here!). Given it's southern Queensland location, Gold Coast is the perfect centre for short airline flights to well-loved ORBX destinations such as Brisbane, Coffs, Port Mac, Hervey Bay, Bundaberg, Cairns, Tamworth and Bathurst. Talking of airline flights, CityScene Gold Coast is prepared and ready for the upcoming Gold Coast Intl; a simple placeholder airport representation has been included as an interim measure until the full HD airport is ready as a separate product. CityScene Gold Coast has been designed to blend with ORBX Australia. ORBX CITYSCENE GOLD COAST FEATURES - Highly detailed, accurate representation of the City of Gold Coast and surrounds - Beautiful ground textures at 60cm, with bonus 7cm ultra-HD at Southport Flying Club - Huge 600km2 coverage area - Next-Gen CityScene Technology - Custom 3D lighting, road traffic, and vector components - Bonus Southport Flying Club (YSPT) lite airport - Bonus light helipads: Marina Helipad and Gold Coast University Hospital - Custom DEM mesh - POIs including Q1 (Australia's tallest building), Jupiters Casino and more - Over 69,000 custom objects! - 119,000 accurately-placed buildings - 1.12 million trees! - Expertly optimised using ground-breaking techniques for best performance. - Compatible with all versions of FSX and P3D, designed for use with ORBX Australia - The exciting first product for Allen Kriesman! - Price will be AUD$24.95 (approx. USD$19.50 / €16 / £14 ) COVERAGE AREA MAP Please enjoy these first screenshots from Emmsie, and stay tuned for plenty more shots and information over the coming days! Cheers, Jarrad
