Following on from the X-Plane 11 release, Orbx will soon be releasing TrueEarth US Northern Califonia for Prepar3D 4+. The power of TrueEarth technology means you can explore one of the most diverse regions in America in unprecedented detail. Millions of trees, buildings and vegetation have been accurately placed throughout the region with accurate height and placement data.
Sprawling cities such as San Francisco, Sacramento and Silicon City have been faithfully recreated with a huge amount of detail. Thousands of buildings placed around these cities to fly over and around in both an IFR or VFR flight. If city flying isn’t for you, Yosemite National Park and Mt Shasta also make for sensational flying.
TrueEarth US Northern Califonia for Prepar3D will feature over 93,000 square miles of aerial imagery, various VFR landmarks such as masts, wind farms and more as well as plentiful 3D objects custom made for the scenery. Locations such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz are fully 3D and watermasking technology blends rivers, lakes and ocean well with the land.
A release is expected soon, along with additional previews.
