Orbx Previews TrueEarth US Northern California for X-Plane 11

Over on the Orbx forum, Iain from Orbx posted a few images of TrueEarth US Northern California for X-Plane 11. Orbx TrueEarth US Northern California was initially announced at the Flight Sim Show in Cosford earlier this year. Staying in line with previous TrueEarth regions, TrueEarth US Northern California will feature accurate trees, buildings and coastlines. The city of San Francisco will be one of the main feature points, the city will be recreated with full PBR material along with Silicon Valley, Yosemite National Park, Mt. Shasta, and more.

 

You can read our previous post here to see a full coverage map and more details. TrueEarth US Northern California will extend all the way from the border of California and Oregon, down to Big Sur, California. Northern California will be available in two packs; SD and HD, the coverage area is the same, however, the ground imagery will differ. The HD version of the scenery, the ground imagery will be as high as 1m/px, the SD version will reduce the resolution to 2m/px. The SD version will have a smaller download/install size for those with limited disk space who want to explore the scenery.

No release date has been given but hopefully it will be soon. Below is a full feature list:

Orbx TrueEarth US Northern California Feature List

  • 212,000 km2 of hand-corrected/cleaned aerial imagery in high-resolution 1m/px (SD Version 2m/px)

My love for everything flightsim started back on FSX in 2007. I can be found flying the 737 almost every night all over the US on Volanta!
