    What is TrueEarth?

    TrueEarth is a game-changing product for Orbx - for the first time we are combining the full suite of features from our FTX regions with a completely photoreal terrain base - a feature previously limited to our airports. Netherlands TrueEarth is far more than a traditional photoreal product, it features comprehensive (and complete) building and vegetation placements, thousands of hand-placed landmarks and POI, and hand-edited textures.


    • The entirety of Netherlands depicted in complete detail!
    • 85,000km2 of photoreal terrain at 1m resolution
    • Full 3D night lighting
    • 43 airports
    • CityScene building technology for all major cities, towns, villages and urban areas. CityScene tech improves on traditional cultivation by adding unusual footprints, higher detail (roof details etc) and better long-range visibility
    • Incredibly dense vegetation cultivation. Far superior to automated OSM technology, our cultivation is compiled from multiple data sets, and hand-edited to ensure maximum fidelity, accuracy and density.
    • Beautifully edited terrain textures - colourised, edited, cleaned up. Blemishes such as cloud cover, water sun glare, seamlines, discolouration and some vehicle footprints have been removed
    • Ultra HD mesh at 5m resolution. Netherlands may be flat, but incredible details such as tailings dumps, sand dunes and even highway overpass ramps are visible
    • Accurate road, waterways, transmission line and other vector/GIS components.
    • Beautiful custom building textures for all autogen buildings
    • Hundreds of custom landmarks and POI
    • Traditional Dutch windmills
    • Major churches and cathedrals custom modelled
    • Custom models for all major TV and radio masts
    • Many major bridges custom designed
    • Custom ship models unique to Netherlands
    • Thousands of hand-placed animated wind turbines, refineries, harbours and other library objects
    • Hand-edited and colourised water textures, including complete watermasking

    Netherlands TrueEarth will launch for AUD$54.95 (approx. USD $42 / £30 / €34 ) - 40% OFF if you’ve already purchased it for P3D!

  • Venema just posted this: "We have worked closely with IPACS to really optimise this release and the FPS even in Amsterdam and other large cities is off the charts! In some areas beta testers have reported over 270FPS!!" Sounds good!

  • The trees look bland, there is no warm sunlit side with a cooler dim side lit only by blue sky. The stark vivid buildings make it worse, they are miss-matched.

    As well as practically no boats the mooring jetties look 100% absent, Rotterdam's water looks painted over with a big midnight-blue crayon, they couldn't even pick a realistic colour.

    It need to sale.... sale a lot so they will continue making stuff for AF2

    I will buy it


    There could have been better coordination between Orbx and IPACS, we are being offered another flat landscape just after Southern Florida.

    I'd buy some nice hills from the Black Forest over to Salzburg.
