Looks good!  Does this mean we can fly from default airports and post screen shots with this mesh?  You guys have no airports in Alaska yet....

The answer is YES mate along as you are showing the mountains and glaciers . Same rules with the NZ mesh .

Really looking forward to this one!
Also looking forward to seeing the Orbx Alaska airports updated for MSFS + new additions - in the meantime - Northern Sky Studios has a good Kenai, Ketchikan and Talkeetna.

This looks amazing! I'm a bit unsure how MSFS mesh works, but will this also fill in a lot of the lakes that are missing from MSFS with water? By default there are a lot of lakes in Alaska that don't have any water in them and are covered in trees.

Is there a rough price we can expect? I'm interested in getting this but very much price dependent as don't fly there a lot but this may change that as love your Iceland mesh 

On Central it's saying £8.23

As there are animals in the game, I'm hoping for some Katmai bears to be visible for a great bush trip experience.

 

Can Orbx confirm?

I do not think that a mesh product will come with any kind of wildlife.

Ah it wasn't on when I posted. Same price as the NZ mesh so makes sense.  Will have a look at some videos and see if worth it or not. Cheers

Have you tried turning your Fauna setting up to 100% and make sure Fauna marker's are on and tried a low and slow flight around this area ?

First day buy for me !! . 

As Brad said - here take my money - please next create some airports and scenery for both Alaska and Pacific North West... too much attention on European areas for my flight tastes.

Me as well!  Valdez was a favorite.  Should be amazing in MSFS

Does that mean that Orbx Alaska Mesh is compatible with third-part designer sceneries ?

I already have Kodiak, Ketchikan, and more others.

Will i encounter negative impact on these sceneries like elevation issues ?

 

+1

 

I'd definitely like to know the answer before making a purchase. I also have a lot of 3rd party Alaskan sceneries

Klawock, Kenai, Kodiak and others are generally established along sea-level, so they should be compatible.

About Ketchikan, i am not shure. I assume that Orbx team checked that :P

That was not a problem when Orbx was developing its own alaskan airports. It was a long long time ago >:(

I've been holding out for Ketchikan, but I expect that it will now ship so that this mesh is a prerequisite for it to display properly. Maybe there could be a few discounted mesh/airport packages. ;)

 

I love Ketchikan too... and MSFS... and I've been very happily flying from there using a payware addon ;);)

I'd really love to see Juneau. Still out there to be claimed by Orbx for MSFS, many other "Orbx ones" are already made.

 

Orbx still can position with Junea, Homer, Valdez, etc there are some yet to recover /claim, stamp the Orbx flag on them.

 

Cheers

Lovely screenshots in the initial post, but can we have some side-by-side comparisons with default mesh (including some close ups) so we can see the improvement we're getting please? Many thanks.

 

Ideally this is the kind of comparison I'd like to see (even without shots of the real terrain this would still be very good... comparison to the default terrain is the main concern).
