Orbx Announces CityScene Barcelona

In the latest addition to their latest line of products, Orbx has announced CityScene Barcelona; scenery for FSX and P3D which covers the entire city of Barcelona in immense detail.

The new product was revealed in Orbx’s forums, stating that this scenery is the work of Allen Kriesman – the developer who brought us CityScene Gold Coast.

CityScene Barcelona uses Kriesman’s new technology to create an accurate, high-density area of stunning scenery without compromising on performance.

Features

  • Highly detailed, accurate representation of Barcelona, Spain and surroundings
  • Nearly 1 million accurately placed regional trees
  • Over 100,000 accurately sized, shaped and positioned custom buildings
  • Over 211,000 efficient roof objects, lighting, container and boxcar objects
  • 812 hand placed library objects (including OrbxLib objects)
  • Expertly optimised using ground-breaking techniques for best performance

This new scenery will also include 7 main points of interest:

  • Hospital de la Santa Creu
  • World Trade Center Of Barcelona
  • Badalona Golf Center
  • Pavelló Olímpic de Badalona
  • Parc de Recerca Biomedica de Barcelona
  • La Monumental
  • Central Térmica de Sant Adrià de Besòs

In addition to all of the dense city-scapes, there will also be an upgraded version of Barcelona’s El-Prat airport – LEBL – which, whilst not up to par with many payware airport releases, it will be a huge upgrade to default, ensuring users can enjoy all aspects of the area.

Along with the screenshots, Orbx also gave a coverage area diagram, showing the large scale of this product, which will be available for all version of FSX and P3D for $24.95 AUD. However, we have yet to be treated to a release date, but we will keep you updated as more information is released.

I wonder if this will work with any of the 3 payware addon airports currently available for Barcelona…..

@Bob

Sometime it is just a matter of removing/deactivating few files from ORBX release to make everything smooth.

T2G EDDM and ORBX GES. Deactivating two files in GES folder removed issues with double airport tower, levitating or disappearing buildings.

@Calum Martin

Aerosoft/JustSim/LatinVFR will need to release updates so that it will work with this new ORBX scenery. I doubt there is anything ORBX can do to make it compatible.

I’ll double check with Orbx but they told me that they’ve been testing it with current scenery packages.

Unless of course you have a source then I’d be happy to ammend my words.

Just asked someone from Orbx and they confirmed that’s the plan. Right now, most testers are using Aerosoft’s version.

I will patiently wait for CityScene London. 😀

odd. gold coast works fine for me. i dont have their airport yet tho..

Hopefully it will not be performance killer like Gold Coast which takes 7 minutes to load, causes blurries and stutters. Only scenery I own which has caused me issues.

As will I, but I feel like merging that with the airports around would be very difficult, then again, this is ORBX we’re talking about.

fps drops would be hell though

Except for my home town (Cape Town) is Barcelona my favourite city in the world … but imagine what fickle fragile P3D (that can’t handle photoreal scenery), will do with this scenery on top of:

Default Scenery

+ ORBX Europe_LC +

+ Global Ultimate NG

+ ORBX Vector

+ SimWings LEBL

+ ORBX Barcelona Skyline

= will probably only be able to fly it with the Trike 😀

[Back to the good old FSX days of switching scenery ON/OFF when you want to fly from A-B]

But this is forgetting that it is almost an absolute given that much like ORBX airports, Barcelona will exclude any remnants of Global Ultimate, Europe Landclass, Vector, Default and Global Base within the scenery area. So really, we’ll only be flying into

+SimWings/Aerosoft/Whoever LEBL

+ ORBX Barcelona

We’ll have to wait and see what the performance is like with those. I’ve had ORBX Gold Coast city and airport since they were released, both run quite well on my setup with the PMDG 737.

This will be very nice if will have a great merge with DAI Media LEBL Scenery wich is very complete!

I had to search for that scenery maker because I hadn’t heard of them yet. How come? Then I realized! “Oh you’re an X-Planer!” We’ve come a long way when both Xplaners and P3ders can comment on the same news article.

Maxkillers “Maxkillers Gaming”

I like my flights to and from barcelona, now I’m going to have more off a reason to fly around there now

less care for that than gold coast tbh.

Did not know that Barcelona had Caribbean style coconut palm trees…

Now you do.

shut up and take my money again orbx!
