Orbx NZGS Gisborne Airport Released

13 33793cbfb686a5e3b77b592108352aa6 Fselite

When you think of stunning scenery, you probably don’t think of New Zealand as a possible location, and if that’s the case you’ll want to pick up the brand new NZGS Gisborne Airport by Orbx to give yourself an excuse to take flight in the land of the long white cloud.

The all-new scenery by Finni Hansen is the first Orbx airport product to utilise the CityScene technology seen in products such as CityScene Barcelona and CityScene Gold Coast. What this means, is that the entire city of Gisborne is included and accurately depicted with a vast amount of autogen across the region, as well as Young Nick’s Head mountain, dynamic lighting (P3D v4) and an animated vintage steam train.

NZGS Gisborne Airport is available right now for FSX and P3D from OrbxDirect & FTX Central at a cost of AUD $32.95. Please note that it also requires NZ North Island to function as intended.

Orbx announce CityScene Gold Coast

Cityscene Gold Coast 3

Orbx has today announced a brand new product for FSX and P3D users who are fans of the unique Australian landscapes. CityScene Gold Coast is a magnificent cityscape rendition of the Gold Coast area in south-east Queensland, Australia and is designed to blend into their FTX Australia product seamlessly.

This scenery also acts as our introduction to the newest member of the Orbx team, Allen Kriesman. Allen comes from a very experienced background, having been the designer behind the Scenery Solutions name for quite some time. They describe him as “a legend of the Flightsim community” and “a master of his craft for several decades”. We’re told to expect his expertise and even new technologies in future products throughout 2018.

You may be wondering what the “CityScene” part of the name is all about. Well, Orbx has outlined CityScene as a new line of products for urban areas. Rather than me try to explain it, here’s how it was described on their forum:

Orbx CityScene is a new line of scenery products that will recreate urban centres and cityscapes around the world in incredible detail. Building upon thousands of hours of R&D over several years, Allen’s ground-breaking new technology enables highly-detailed scenery, coupled with highly improved performance and optimisation compared to default city centres. Bypassing traditional autogen methods, buildings correctly replicate unusual footprints, improve on building height and type accuracy, and even add more details for an immersive experience. Vegetation, lighting, terrain, traffic, are all fully integrated. Most importantly, CityScene technology uses next-gen optimisation techniques to ensure the very best performance. The CityScene line will sit alongside bespoke hand-made Cityscapes such as Maurizio’s Canberra and Cote d’Azure; likewise some components of this new tech will be utilised in upcoming region and airport products.
