First Alpha Previews of Orbx TrueEarth GB South in Aerofly FS 2

Orbx True Earth South Gb Afs2 (5)

John at Orbx has taken the first alpha shots of the upcoming TrueEarth Great Britain South for in Aerofly FS 2. The alpha build images are still very much work-in-progress, but represent that significant development is underway.

The initial tests from this early stage are showing a frame rate of 180FPS in more rural areas, and over 100FPS in the more populated city areas.

John is hoping that Orbx TrueEarth Great Britain South will release for Aerofly FS 2 in the first half of this year, but is asking to keep in mind that this is a new development team so delays are still possible.

You can check out plenty of other Orbx TrueEarth products from their store. Including TrueEarth Netherlands (which is available for Aerofly FS 2) along with a variety of Great Britain packages for both X-Plane and Prepar3D.

Orbx Demonstrates Netherlands TrueEarth Performance in AFS2

Orbx previewed a range of screenshots for the upcoming  Netherlands TrueEarth for Aerofly FS 2 recently. The screenshots themselves looked impressive thanks to the use of new technology and the power of the simulator itself. Static images are a great way to see how something looks, but the important thing for simmers is the performance. Fortunately for us John Dow from Orbx gave insight into how the simulator performs with the scenery.

The sub-10 minute video demonstrates the high frame rates that Aerofly FS 2 can achieve, whilst retaining high levels of detail. John added that “the only stutters you’ll see in this video are lags caused by the video recording program, not in the sim itself.”

For those wondering, the video was captured at a 4K resolution using a computer that holds a i7 4790K @ 4.5GHz and a GTX1080 graphics card.
