AeroflyFS2 Previews

Additional Previews of Netherlands TrueEarth (Aerofly FS 2)

True Earth Netherlands Orbx Afs2 (4)

Iain Emms at Orbx continues to provide excellent photography skills within the simulator and has today used those skills to create some new imagery for the upcoming Netherlands TrueEarth from Orbx. Following on from their P3D version earlier this year, the Aerofly FS 2 version looks to use the technology from within that simulator to create a high performing and realistic rendition of the country.

We recently shared with you a video demonstrating how impressive the simulator can run on modest hardware, and these screenshots continue to show some great aspects of it.

Still no word on when the download will be available for everyone. Don’t forget, Netherlands TrueEarth is currently available for P3D (and it’s on sale at the time of publication).

Huge Preview on Orbx EU Netherlands TrueEarth

1 (3)

Over on the Orbx forums, Jarrad has put together a hugely impressive preview on the upcoming photoreal scenery project from the team. This new technology, now being called ‘TrueEarth’ is the next step forward for Orbx and how they want to make the world in our sims a much more realistic place. The preview thread itself is impressive and littered with information, screenshots and really cool sliders to show you what photoscenery looks like before the autogen, objects and points of interest are then placed and what it looks like after. Whilst we know this technology is coming to P3D, X-Plane and Aerofly FS2, this preview thread currently focuses on the P3D version.

The first thing Orbx are keen to let you know is that this is more than just your typical photoreal product. It comes with a complete building and vegetation placement across the region, including thousands of hand placed landmarks. Furthermore, it will also feature 5 distinct seasons and night lighting. It will also use the CityScene technology found in Gold Coast to create accurate representations of buildings.

You may have also noticed that the naming of the product has now been changed to “EU Netherlands TrueEarth“. The ‘TrueEarth’ tag is what will be used when this technology has been implemented. This will include GIS technology, advanced night lighting from ORBX Global Base and openLC, propitiatory autogen techniques previously seen at Innsbruck, Berlin (GEN) and Munich (GES). It’s combining the best of the best from Orbx into a complete package. Whilst this may be the future, it is important to note that land-class based regions will continue to be developed as well as the TrueEarth ones.

TrueEarth regions will retail for AUD$54.95 (~USD$42 / £30 / €34 ), which is the same as other regions currently. We’re awaiting to see what beta testers say regarding performance, but we’re hoping it is flexible for users with a range of machines.
