I have all the regions in europe, base, vector, openlc installed,smooth framerates, when i install all europe regions frames drop like hell, no service packs from orbx after i spent huge amounts of money. One slight drawback you may hardly notice in reality is bridges at motorway junctions. Once I leave school, I plan to pursue my dream of becoming a commercial airline pilot. I'm not talking about landclass placement, but the quality of the texures. Swansea looks a little barren for my liking, although the vector outline of the docks are very accurate and, in truth, there isn't much there. They could have been better though, as there are some oil tanks in fields.
I do think they are struggling with resources internally a bit and I hope they can expand their team to take on these ambitious new projects. No, it has not and it goes back to overcommitting their resources to their shiny new product line ahead of what had already been announced, which created the sense of ignoring their customers of previous products. Airports All the major airports across Wales are included in the scenery. The summer textures looked gorgeous and are great for screenshots, but they seem to be a little too vivid and cartoony, the same can be said for the spring textures. Again, the roads and rivers were present but the Trafford Centre and Old Trafford Stadium were missing, which made it a little harder.
In other words, it's photo imagery of the actual landscape with all the 3D autogen on top. The issues are not so numerous, but having spotted them, I did not always feel like I was really there. This is one of the very best and most realistic scenery landscapes that I have seen for any flight simulator and I was completely stunned every time I got airborne. The complete region is handcrafted down to even the smallest details and the textures used are indeed of the very high quality. You will small patches of wood but — being efficient as we are — we have tried to organize farming and make access and plowing of the fields as easy as we can — for example: little to no trees in or between fields.

I feel that their efforts deserve a thorough and detailed inspection, and they are not found wanting with what I have seen. I have to admit, I was apprehensive about reviewing an Orbx regional scenery product because I have always exclusively used photo scenery and so this was a bit of a departure for me in terms of my usual scenery choices. The airfields I visit are Walney Island Cumbria , London City and Fenland Lincolnshire. I'll pass on my comments next week, once the initial launch rush has died down so they don't get lost amongst the over-excitement. Flying around the Lake District was a lot of fun and I flew over an area near Lake Derwent which I recently visited and it is represented very well. After reaching about 2000 ft.
For larger villages and towns it ought to be possible to represent the shape accurately but presumably it will need the landclass data to be correct. It can fairly represent what is there but it will be a representation, not a replication and will not display the degree of accuracy that you want. For a multitude of reasons, generated scenery cannot exactly replicate what is there, photo scenery can show you what was there when the photo was taken and the best scenery is a combination of photograph and hand placed autogen and scenery objects.

Each 1km x 1 km tile was assessed against Google Earth to check that it was as close as possible to the actual landclass. It means they then have additional financial resources to develop new ideas.
