Orbx Previews TrueEarth Great Britain North for X-Plane 11

TrueEarth GB North (2)

Over on the Orbx forum, John Venema has dropped the first set of work-in-progress previews of the upcoming TrueEarth Great Britain North for X-Plane 11. This is to be the last TrueEarth puzzle piece to cover the entirety of Great Britain in X-Plane 11.

Venema mentions that good progress has been made on GB North and that Orbx is hoping to licence 10M elevation mesh to make the Scottish Highlands just stunning to explore. The clarity of the Northern satellite imagery is to be better than down below as their data provider appears to have improved QA heading up north. Nevertheless, the previews look stunning for the stage of it is at and we look forward to seeing the continued development.

We don’t have much more information on pricing or features for TE GB North although we believe they will be similar to the last two TE GB releases.

Furthermore, it is mentioned that the first service packs are being worked on for TrueEarth Netherlands, GB South and Central. We will let you know once those have been released.

Over on the Orbx forum, a team member has posted some “fast and slow” previews of TrueEarth Great Britain Central for X-Plane 11 in two posts.

TrueEarth GB Central is the next puzzle piece in the Orbx TrueEarth series to follow GB South which has shown to be a popular release amongst the X-Plane community breathing life into the South of Great Britain. GB Central is to cover a huge area of 59,383km2 of hand-corrected imagery, hundreds of POI, detailed cities, scenic areas and more covering the entire central region of England and Wales.

In these previews, we see the stunning beauty of Central England coming to life in X-Plane 11. These shots are from the current beta version of X-Plane (11.26) along with some visual enhancement add-ons used. I’ll let the eye-candy speak for itself.
