ORBX Palm Springs International - Coming Soon to AFS2!



  • G'day guys,


    I thought I might post a few screenshots of my latest airport for Aerofly - Palm Springs Intl in Southern California. This has been a project going on behind the scenes for some time now, and aside from a few last tweaks, is very close to release. I chose this airport as, much like Monterey and Eagle County, it is located in the heart of the default scenery areas, and as such is surrounded by plenty of beautiful (default) scenery to explore. The airport itself includes an enormous coverage area, a highly-detailed rendition of the airport and city, dozens of landmarks, and even a special helipad feature in anticipation of the R22 :) The cultivation is hand-placed and highly detailed, as is the photoreal base. I've used the IPACS-recommended workflow as much as possible to ensure best optimization and performance within the sim.


    Unfortunately there isn't a release date just yet, but I can assure you it's not too far off :) As with my other airports, this will be released through ORBXdirect first, and then via Steam a little while later.


    These are a small selection of the screenshots; for more detailed information and (many) more pictures, please feel free to visit the main announcement topic over at ORBX.


    Cheers,

    Jarrad

  • Wohooo!

    My favorite test location is finally getting a much improved look!


    It's so funny that they actually write on the taxiway that it is not the runway you should land on. I'd love to hear how many people have done it before they decided to add the big red labels on the ground.

    Maybe they are worried about Harrison Ford coming for a visit........ ^^

    Apparently it used to happen all the time. If you have a read of this NTSB report (page 6 onwards), you can even see the much-more-drastic markings they had back in the mid-'90s.

  • Orbx's Palm Springs Intl is like a whole new DLC being added. There is so much premium area being added and so very many custom quality items to see and do. Huge new playground for the R-22 for sure. 8o


    Thanks Jarrad,

    Just about everything you see in this screenshot (except my special Learjet) will be upgraded with the Orbx Palm Springs Intl for AFS2. Wow.
