Some news about Orbx TrueEarth Nedherlands

  • Hello gents,


    John Venema posted yesterday some news in the Orbx forum about the upcoming Orbx TrueEarth Netherland for AF2 release :):


    « Netherlands TrueEarth for AFS2 is progressing very well, we are working on all the airports which as you may expect uses different tech to P3D. I have an alpha version on my PC and it looks superb and the FPS are amazing.«


    Let’s hope it will come in June,


    BR, Herve

  • Thanks HerveF for passing this along.


    Let’s see which arrives first - the DLC Florida Keys or Orbx TrueEarth Netherlands. It seems a very long time since anything new was introduced for the scenery folder. Of course, it always seems to be a long wait when it is anxiously awaited. 🤪😎😴


    I think the award for exceptional development speed goes to Spit40’s FS Cloudbased Airport generator. We now are a needle width away from a full one thousand airports available for takeoffs and landing in AFS2 worldwide.


    But, the best of the best airport award for quality and content goes to the two user custom built airports in the UK. Where would we be without larrylynx’s Liverpool and Leeds Bradford?


    Thanks Phil and Steve for your outstanding contributions.

  • From this morning from JV at ORBX:


    """""We have a new AFS2 airport imminent, preview shots ASAP. And you'll be surprised at the price too! """""

  • Not a surprise. Almost all P3D users have already migrated to v4. And the FSX market is at its historical minimum.

    Cheers, Ed

  • I believe ( No proof...just a feeling) that they are holding back on PNW to get the True Earth technology up to speed. Then they can do more than just "Port over to the new platform" they can substantially improve on it. I hope I am right. I also eagerly await PNW. It's one of the few things I miss from P3D

  • So, looks like immiment, ASAP is not going to be today. Anyone have a good guess at this Orbx AFS2 scenery that JV says will have a good price?

    It could be Jackson Hole with a reduced price because it is a port over, but then so were Monterey and Eagle County, so I don’t have a good guess.


    I hope it is a good place for helicopters.

  • ORBX is Australian, why not release Australia first?
