More Previews of Orbx EU Netherlands (And a Quick Status Update)

NL PR 068.jpg.182bef71d74cff06a516bfa1f65eab38

When John from Orbx confirmed that they were working on EU Netherlands Photo Real scenery, there was definitely a feeling of excitement in the air. Not only was such a beautiful region going to be treated with the FTX magic, but it was going to be completely new technology using photo real scenery. The current alpha shots previewed back in October looked great and as development as progressed, John was kind enough to share a few more as well as a development update.

John has said that autogen trees are now complete for the whole country and that around 85% of the buildings have been placed. With the Netherlands hosting unique designs for their buildings, the team are creating a range of building textures to ensure the scenery looks authentic. Furthermore, there’s a whole range of points of interests being modeled, 5M mesh has been added, along with wind farms, power lines and other obstructions.

As per other regions, all the airports have been upgraded and the glider fields have been added. Finally, dykes and other irrigation infrastructures has also been added.

The few previews above demonstrate the attention to detail this region is going through. John added the development is ‘very good’ and that beta testing could start by Christmas or even earlier. Once that process starts, we can expect a whole bunch more images to showcase this stunning region.

Head to the Orbx forums to find out more.

Orbx – FTX Germany South ‘Final Shots’ Before Release

Orbx Germany South 61

A couple of hours ago, Iain from Orbx posted his final shots of the upcoming FTX Germany South. Germany South has been previewed multiple times and finishes off the region of Germany. We were huge fans of Germany North so we’re excited to get our hands on this one, which promises to be even more detailed. With plenty of points of interest, hand placed objects and accurate texturing / landclass, Germany will be one of the best looking regions in the sim.

As always with Iain’s ‘final shots’, it means that a release is pretty imminent from the guys at Orbx. Once it’s released and out, we’ll let you know final pricing and any further details. For now enjoy his final previews of the beautiful European region.
