That completely changes the way I feel when flying over Caribbean and Pacific Islands. If you notice performance problems — use the configurator to exclude some elements. Apart from that — all the recently finished roads I checked were there. Kraków and Dniester river are such examples. The default buildings are very American, meaning when you fly in populated African and Asian cities, things start to look. As Orbx includes many more textures that differ depending on your region, I might add and spread them out much further, this problem is essentially removed entirely and the issue of checkerboarding is no more.
New autogen buildings and vegetation textures also replace the default ones. In all 30 places I noticed additional elements. Orbx have expertly done the bordering of the land class images. In this review, I will be taking an in-depth look at what this add-on does, and if it still stands with today's high standards when it comes to flight simulation in general. If you like to follow roads and motorways when you fly — you need an update. Speaking of regions, they also have their own set of textures.Next
Caractéristiques: - Des côtes précises, des rivières, des lacs et d'autres masses d'eau. But the first covers Europe, and the second — the whole world. The only mistake I found in these places was a small road missing in Chad. That said, I have recently transitioned to P3D 64 bit. Orbx textures are much better than default ones. Why do you need a vector scenery? Textures are also of a much higher resolution meaning you can see a lot more detail in buildings while on the ground - perfect especially when flying out of smaller airfields and regional airports where housing and buildings may only be a stone's throw away. Coastlines also add much to the visual impressions.Next
Click on that and click 'Install'. I did not find a single mistake here — and I did a lot of test flights. It would be ok if the river was small and insignificant but it often happens over some pretty large ones — like Vistula in Poland. When you fly at both low and high altitude, the ground images fit into one another seamlessly. This is where the textures are so few and used so much, you can see them repeat over and over again.Next
I found out that this river is missing when I was in the middle of my flight to Romania. There are places like Stockholm, Sweden where I had to look very close to notice the differences. This means ground buildings from a neutral worldwide perspective are much better and won't appear out of place no matter what continent you are in, they fit the environment well. Once Calvert Beach I noticed that a power line was missing. . While it would be impossible to have it 100% perfect, the Orbx ground texture layout comes close to ensuring that everything matches up where it should, without looking terrible. I also found take a look at my test that it lacks some harbors.Next
Configuration You can turn off selected elements. If this bothers you, crawl back into the cockpit from outside and check your instruments for 2-3 minutes until the mismatched textures transition is behind you. The add-on will then automatically configure onto your simulator. I finally just disabled the entire vector package; if you are willing to take the time, many freeware packages doing the same thing often better, and certainly are just as good. They are more or less correct in terms of shape and direction but they lack details. For example over Poland, Ukraine, Asia, Far East and Africa. I am also very fond of all the lakes I see when I fly airlines — especially after my recent flights over Sweden and Finland.Next
The -300, -400 and -500 versions of the 737 have been expertly modelled and come with a choice of over 70 airline liveries. Pros, cons and the competition Advantages of having a good vector scenery are clear — now I can navigate visually and I have more fun. I had only few screenshots of the places I selected but from what I can see. I agree with oldcrusty: this product utterly changes the FlightSim experience. Apart from places where long stretches of beach even the coastline they are full of small insets. Recreating natural features requires something… more varied. Can't wait to see what other places look like now.
On one hand — it includes a landclass. I can't believe I had never heard of this add-on until a few days ago. Also on Long Island the difference was mostly in how good the roads look. One issue the default ground textures had is that when the ground type changes it didn't matter what was there, it would just be cut and a border made. On the other hand — all the screens I compared looked a bit less detailed. Having released in July 2013, this add-on has been out for quite some time now.Next
MegaScenery is great except for the lack of seasons and night lighting, even with autogen off, if you are flying commercial or military aircraft. And I do not want to even mention roads — they are either outdated or just not there… Why is that so? While the default simulator just had 'Africa' and 'Europe' textures per se, the new Orbx set breaks it down into smaller areas for example 'Central Africa' and 'Continental Europe'. Takoradi similarly to many other port cities received a harbor and a better coastline. After the installation is complete, you will probably need to do some additional steps before it works as intended. Other places most places on Earth in fact look much better than before.Next
