Just a few minutes ago, Orbx developer Jarrad Marshall has posted a big announcement about the upcoming Netherlands region from Orbx. They claim this is the next generation of Orbx products and combine the features of the FTX Regions with new photoreal terrain. Other features include:
“The entirety of Netherlands depicted in complete detail!
85,000km2 of photoreal terrain at 1m resolution (nb the same resolution as traditional landclass textures)
Complete seasonal variation: 5 hand-coloured seasons!
Full 3D night lighting and night ground textures
43 updated airports, including 18 not found in the default scenery.
CityScene building technology for all major cities, towns, villages and urban areas. CityScene tech improves on traditional autogen by adding unusual footprints, higher detail (roof details etc) and better long-range visibility
Incredibly dense autogen vegetation. Far superior to automated OSM technology, our agn 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. Colour palettes have been edited to match ORBX Global texture sets.
Custom-painted rural variations, including tulip fields during spring
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, waterway, bridges, transmission line and other vector/GIS components. Road AI traffic also included to regular Region standards
Beautiful custom building textures for all autogen buildings
Hundreds of custom landmarks and POI
Traditional Dutch windmills
Major churches and cathederals 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 wind turbines, refineries, harbours and other library objects
Hand-edited and colourised water textures, including complete watermasking
Fully compatible with neighboring regions (GES, GEN), ORBX Global and OpenLC Europe
A lower resolution photoreal option will be available for a much smaller download size
Netherlands will launch for AUD$54.95 (~USD$42 / £30 / €34 ) ”
