First Alpha Shots of Orbx FTX EU Netherlands Photoreal

Orbx Ftx Netherlands Alpha P3dv4 36

After we published an article confirming that Orbx would be developing a new FTX region in the Netherlands, we couldn’t wait to see the first shots. Lucky for us then, as John Venema has taken to the forums to reveal the first alpha shots of the region. Yes, you also read the title correctly – this will be Orbx’s first ‘Photoreal’ FTX region. That’s right, the entire region will use photoreal scenery to make the experience as real as possible.

Probably the most exciting element of the announcement is that John has said that by using photoreal scenery, it will allow for every single house, building, tree, mast, powerline, windmill, industrial and wind farm in the entire country. It will be in full 3D and perfectly annotated and positioned. Furthermore, it will also include many points of interest, vehicle traffic and 5M mesh. Of course as it’s a region, every airport will be upgraded and 5 seasons will be included.

It will be compatible with FSX, FSX:SE and P3DV1-4.

The vast selection of screenshots below are from the beta and as the testers get their hands on it, they’ll be able to show off some more.

Head to the forums for more.
