    Orbx versus FSET

    Post by britfrog on Sun Nov 29, 2015 11:48 am

    I thought this morning I would play devils advocate having seen some of the orbx pictures of Welshpool so went and looked at what I had scanned some months ago and compare it with the orbx view



    see what you think but I think orbx is better than my scan ----Just Smile




    Mike fancy putting some 3D trees around here?

    So ORBX does use potoscenery, but re-texture to their house colors. If they did Global to that standard then ...................... but then?

    J I think it is only in rare cases that they use photscenery, this was a binned basket case left half finished by another dev team that someone picked up and ran with, it is slightly better IMHO than photoscenery combined with UK2000 but interestingly enough I have orbx people walking around the airport in my uk2000 version so they must have had it planned in the wales scenery and it never came into fruition. Sadly for orbx I think Welshpool is an airport rarely visited by simmers, even uk ones, so no doubt it will be on sale soon, which is sad as someone has put a lot of work into it.

    My amateur attempt at Welshpool with FSET using satellite images courtesy of Virtual Earth and UK2000 airfields.

    I found a neat trick of editing the UK 2000 airfield to get rid of their terrible ground image.
