  • Very nice screenshots of gorgeous real-looking scenery. But a question: while this addon from VFR France is not yet available(?), are these shots from the same scenery addon for P3Dv4? Or do you have the previlege to already have this scenery installed in AFS2?

  • These shots are taken from ASF2 and yes I am lucky to have access to the current beta version (hence the preview watermark to avoid confusion).

    Whilst this scenery is not finalized yet I, it's already very impressive and smooth as butter with Vulkan!

  • It's beautiful, and like everything else for FS 2 I will buy it. The problem is that it will be an island paradise in the middle of soup. I have made my own Europe photo scenery, so it will be OK for me, but for the average buyer it still will be problematical. I think that is one of the reasons FS 2 scenery sells so poorly. Unlike areas for other sims there isn't enough for it to blend into.

  • That blending is a problem indeed. Would be nice already if the surrounding area had a bit higher resolution textures with the same coloring. It will be awful flying near the border of this region now... (which is cleverly (almost) kept out of sight on all these screenshot). Maybe something for a freeware developer...? ;) Or does this addon come with basic surrounding textures?!

  • Seen like that, the complete Earth is an island in the middle of nowhere... please refer to com 11 of first page of this thread where I provided the exact coverage of the scenery, you can fly for hours above such a region.


    cheers

  • Yes bear in mind this type of very detailed scenery is essentially for VFR flying so the aera covered here is quite sizeable already.

  • If you know France VFR's range of products, Paris IDF is the smallest region covered by their VFR 3D automation technology. If this "demonstrator" scenery sells ok, maybe we can expect they roll out Haute Normandie or Basse Normandie to extent the coverage to the west and then they playground will be much bigger! But let's see first how this one is welcomed by the simmers as you know that Orbx was also willing to adapt TrueEarth GB to AFS2 but they finally decided to pull out the plug to focus on Xplane...


    A few more, imagine that in VR ;)

  • Yes hope that success will meet your expectations, then continue to Alsace via this magnificent Basel-Mulhouse airport of ''FranceVFR'', or even the Rhone-Alpes region, which by these two departments would join the DLC IPACS Switzerland!:)

  • In circles, sure. But not arriving or departing. And please don't assume I didn't read the entire post!

    Then you may have noticed my link was quite accurately addressing the statement and questions quoted below.

    We sure would love having a much wider playground, but we needed a start point and Ile-de-France region is by far the highest density and complexity you can face in France, so when the technology works here it will easily work for any further French region, if successful...

    We had first to prove the concept.


    Anyway, with some 24'000 square km of HR photo I think you may afford flying a long final without fearing the sight of soup ;)

  • I sincerely hope this will sell well giving hope to more regions to follow. All the France VFR regions I have for Prepar3d (quite a lot) look absolutely great.
