  1. One of the things that I most enjoy about all the Orbx MS2020 offerings is the attention to detail and the visual immersion that this brings to the flight experience. EGCK Caernarfon is no exception and the Orbx wizards have done it again I started thinking, how does it compare with XPlane 11 and so decided to put together a little "montage" of the two. All screenshots are direct from their respective "V" key with no post editing. I have to say though that I guess my passion around flight simming is really concentrated on the science of computer graphics , and the lighting and computer science behind the scenes in computer gaming lighting engines. So the "Renault" pixie dust from my "second hobby "has been scattered liberally here .... I do hope you enjoy them And fantastic job as always to the authors of this addon. Orbx, you do good work guys and never disappoint ! Cheers Pete A little bit of "artistic license" here. I was feeling a bit peckish and wanted to enjoy the sunset
  2. They say good things comes to those that wait and we are finally pleased to announce that EGNT Newcastle International Airport is close to release. Not only for the X-Plane but also for Microsoft Flight Simulator! Newcastle International Airport is located north of the university city of Newcastle Upon Tyne in the North East of England. Once an industrial superpower of the shipbuilding era Newcastle has now transformed into a buzzing cultural hub. Over 5 million visitors a year pass through the doors from leisure routes operated by narrow-body jets to Las Palmas & Santorini and long-haul visits to Dubai in a 777-300ER. This is the perfect airport for those wanting something a bit more regional, but with an international appeal. The 7,600ft runway provides quite the challenge when operating those heavier aircraft, especially during the typical rainy weather of the north of England. Our UK team based in Havant (LOWG Graz, KSJC San Jose, EGLC London City and many more) have taken care and attention when developing Newcastle International Airport. With high-quality texture work throughout and plenty of features to enjoy, Newcastle is a great addition to the UK set of airports for both X-Plane and Microsoft Flight Simulator. Both versions feature: Detailed and stunning PBR texturing Ultra-high quality modelling work throughout Stunning 3D modelling Custom ortho Highly detailed GSE and static aircraft Enjoy these screenshots from both platforms!

  3. The perfect gateway to Yosemite’s impressive national parks. KFAT Fresno Yosemite International Airport will provide you with the opportunity to connect quickly to multiple destinations and soar above the famed forest of Yosemite. Featuring an impressive level of quality, Fresno Yosemite International Airport is the perfect place to experience a variety of piloting opportunities. Take a flight from the airport and fly over the famous Airways Golf Club that sits just north of the dual-runway airport, or take on a helicopter tours around the city. The airport had its origins as a military airfield in World War II and is home many government agencies as well as the 144th Fighter Wing of the California Air National Guard. Another critical function operated out of Fresno is the coordination of firefighting aircraft which is managed by the Fresno Air Attack Base located at the airport. The airport gets it code (FAT) from the former name of the airport, Fresno Air Terminal, and has tried unsuccessfully in the past to have a new identifier allocated due to the negative connotations. The airport changed its name to Fresno Yosemite International Airport to hopefully attract visitors travelling to the Yosemite National Park. Featuring: Detailed and accurate rendition of Fresno Yosemite Airport Perfect for GA pilots, private jet pilots and helicopter fanatics Incredible quality texturing with PBR materials throughout Interact with the airport with SAM jetways and marshellers Atmospheric night lighting Custom static F15 and Blackhawk models Interior modelling of the main terminal Optimised for great performance Designed for TrueEarth Northern California Be sure to check new previews as we gear up for launch this weekend!
  4. I am really enjoying TE GBS , but it is so incredibly detailed that I am continually wondering where I am (befuddled is more like it!) The existing moving map in XPlane is good if you want airports etc. but for an armchair pilot like myself I would like a bit more detail like community place names, roads , motorways etc. Just all the stuff that helps us mere mortals to get by. I have my UK atlas by my side, but it takes a fair bit of time to keep track of where you are and I kept thinking wouldn't a moving map like the gps in my car be a great add in. I came across a little plug in called Avitab ( https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/44825-avitab-vr-compatible-tablet-with-pdf-viewer-moving-maps-and-more/ ) which more than fits the bill. Simply put it has increased my enjoyment of TE GBS by 1000%. Installation is incredibly simple. After unzipping, just put the Avitab folder in the XPlane plug ins folder. When you start up XPlane go under the plug ins menu, select Avitab and then Maps and you are good to go. ( I bound the "t" key on my keyboard to toggle it on and off) and that was the extent of the installation. There is also a full forum on the plug in at XPlane-org ( https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/forum/425-avitab-plugin/ ) as well. Lastly, a number of aircraft now have the ability to fully integrate the plug-in into a fascimile of an ipad in the cockpit to allow the moving map display to work all the time, but I just choose the simple approach to toggle the tool on and off when needed. The following screenshots show a number of scenarios . The common theme to all of them was "Where was I ??" . And with Avitab,I now know exactly . There are several options for maps - I just took the default to use open source maps , which are downloaded on an as needed basis (they are also stored permenetly in the Avitab Maptiles subfolder. Although completely a function of the map sourcing, I particularly like the great detail in the open source maps such as the contour maps if you move in (closely spaced contours on elevation features indicate how quickly the elevation is changing) which I find very helpful when the view is partially obscured by cloud, mist etc. I hope that you find the following interesting and if you are an Avitab user, please accept my enthusiam for a really excellent product that has really enhanced the pleasure of flying in TE GBS. Cheers Renault So here we are. Each sequence shows the original screenshot , following by the Avitab window and moving map display ... I deliberately chose a dusk sequence , because this is when I find it most difficult to keep track of my actual location. 1) Typically when I'm flying I'm never quite sure exactly where I am ... ( I am somewhere "over Bristol" -- not very exact!). And toggling up Avitab, I now have all the detail in real time that I want ... 2) And turning into the sunset.. Nice view but again where am I ? This almost makes it too easy ... 3) Here you go Jack .... a bit of orange 4) Sorry I just liked the view ..... 5) Just flying over Bristol Filton , EGTG Airport info is also available in Avitab 6) Coming in to EGTG ... And the map .... 7) The final two ... And the map ...

  6. A small test flight from San Francisco with the version 3 of Manfred Jahn's famous DC3 transposed for Xplane by Aeroworks. 2 jewels in a way!
  7. Hi all, Just a quick prepurchase question, do all X-plane airports sold through Orbx include correctly placed taxiway routes and parking stand data needed for a plugin such as Traffic Global? They obviously look fantastic and are of a great visual standard, but beauty is only skin deep. I only ask as there have been a few posts in Traffic Globals forum about incorrect taxiway routes and/or gate placement with London City and Leeds which causes issues unless corrected in WED. I know you can't be compatible with every addon, but I'd just like to make sure the data we can't see is just as high quality as the visuals we can see before I buy. Thanks for any help! Phill
  8. Hi, at Stapleford I have this blue surfaces under the hay bales. Does anyone know where this comes from? A piece of advice would be very appreciated. Thank you very much. Cheers Mike
  9. Just a little comparison between ORBX Innsbruck (right side) and Ortho4XP (left side, Bing with ZL16). The improvement in quality really is amazing! You guys did an awesome job with this scenery. I enjoy it so much and it already became my new favorite airport! 10/10.
  10. Let's not kid ourselves.. It isn't an Orbx scenery in the PNW without a good old Bowerman shot! Orbx TE Washington UltraWeatherXP Xvision Bowerman freeware airport off the org Just Flight PA-28-181 Archer III
  11. Help when i try to load into X-Plane i get this message? I didn't get it yesterday! Also my True Earth South is installed but FTX Central says it isn't?
  12. After years of struggeling with P3D, never-ending tweaking, fixing and micro-stutters, the last CTD (after starting to descent down to the Canaries) was the final straw that made me delete everything having to do something with P3D. Guys I feel like a burden has suddenly fallen from my shoulders. Honestly, it has been more hate than love for a long time, already. So, no more looking back and hello beautiful smooth new sim!
  13. Earlier this year, we announced that we would be developing TrueEarth Great Britain for X-Plane 11. Our X-Plane team headed up by specialist Tony Wroblewski has been working tirelessly to bring you the first title in the series, TrueEarth Great Britain South. TrueEarth Great Britain for X-Plane is series of three with GB Central and GB North to follow in the coming months. We always intended to release TrueEarth Great Britain as three separate regions, just like we did for the original UK FTX Regions. However, we cannot release them based on geographical boundaries as with did for the FTX regions, because the only correct way to distribute mesh based sceneries for X-Plane is using 1-degree tiles. For this reason we have split GB into South, Central and North as you can see in the map. We will also split TrueEarth GB for P3Dv4 and AFS2 in the same way to keep the product line consistent between simulators. GB South covers a whopping 42,000 square miles (107,349 km2) and covers Southern England and Wales. We have developed new autogen technology especially for X-Plane which allows for region specific houses to be placed accurately to ensure maximum immersion. What really makes TrueEarth Great Britain unique, are the Points of Interest. We have hundreds of iconic UK landmarks from Tintagel to Cardiff City Stadium, from the Brighton Pier up to Buckingham Palace in London – all based on 2018 data - You won’t find a more comprehensive and up-to-date British flying experience anywhere! Features: 42,000 square miles (107349 km2) of hand corrected, crisp, color-matched aerial imagery New autogen technology developed specially for X-Plane 11, allowing thousands of realistic looking UK-themed houses to be placed at a realistic height with minimal impact on performance 130 million trees at the correct height and location 13.2 million buildings at the correct height and location VFR landmarks such as masts, windfarms, churches, power-lines, and lighthouses are all accurately placed. Hundreds of custom-modelled 3D POIs Hand-placed and custom modelled landmarks placed throughout the scenery such as bridges, skyscrapers, castles, piers, and monuments – this is especially noticeable in city areas such as London and along the coast. Sharp and detailed 10-meter mesh brings out stunning detail in natural features such as hills and beaches Superb watermasking along the entire coastline Accurate road and rail network blended into the aerial imagery with moving left-hand drive traffic. Control Panel option to use photoreal major roads/motorways or synthetic X-Plane ones. Summer season only with full night-lighting supported We have also added a new built-in decompression feature in FTX Central to greatly reduce the download size (approx 35GB instead of 90GB) ensuring an efficient installation process. In addition to these features, users will get free service packs for life as well as more POI models in future updates. TrueEarth GB South will be available to purchase from OrbxDirect this month for AUD $54.95 (approx. USD $39.55 / €33.95 / £30.60) Please note that there is no cross-grade discount from the landclass-based FTX England, Wales or Scotland regions. Here are three shots taken by Jarrad Marshall Using ReShade 0.19.1 / SweetFX Here are nearly 90 screenshots taken by Filou on the following system: i7 4790K / GTX 1080 / 24 MEMORY/ SSD Shaders: ReShade 0.19.1 / SweetFX / MaxxFX Weather: Ultra Weather XP / xEnviro v1.09 A few more things to mention: These screenshots are from the Beta2 build. We’ll be sharing many more shots from Beta3 in the coming days which has even more 3D POI models, texturing and further improvements All of the Orbx FTX England and Wales airports are in the process of being ported to XP11 right now, and EGHI Southampton, EGFF Cardiff and EGKA Shoreham will be released very soon after TrueEarth GB South is out - we will demo those at Cosford. All the Orbx UK airports will be available for XP11 before the end of the year. The P3Dv4 version of TrueEarth GB South is about 60% complete and we’re aiming for release by the end of the year. After Great Britain, we begin development of TrueEarth regions in the USA from early 2019, beginning with Pacific Northwest!
  14. Strange effect. i am not able anymore then more then 1.25Mb upload my shots per topic. No clou why it changed. Regards Peter
  15. Took a trip from Goodwood up past London, then via Coventry and Birmingham then back to my local airfield Wellesbourne Mountford though annoyingly I must of forgotten to actually hit the take photo button as I got to Wellesbourne so I'm missing a shot of my landing. Taxiing at Goodwood: Take off: Coming up on London: Looking towards the city: Random shot over the countryside: Passing Coventry: Passing over Birmingham city centre:
  16. While doing some very low altitude flying across GB I realized that TEGBN is missing the grass effect. First screenshot is somewhere around EGHI and second one is around Edinburgh, however I tried it around Inverness as well - same problem. Am I missing something or was this made on purpose? I attached a screenshot of my scenery order as well. Kind regards, SEB
  17. Hi, I have EGCB installed for xplane and also truearth central, it looks great but the buildings for EGCB dont load in, any idea why? I have the folder for EGCB above all the truearth folders but that diosent help, neither does deleting EGCB and moving it back in, I manully installed them by the way. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  18. So I finally got round to installing GB TrueEarth last night into XPlane, and thought I'd share just how good it looks Terry
