Hello! I have recently installed Prepar3d and Orbx England and Wales. And I must say, unfortunately, I am very disappointed. Lets start with an issue I think of as the least important. Anyone who lives here in Wales knows that the scenery is very vibrant and green. However Orbx's Wales scenery (and England) appears very dull, grey and generally a bad representation of Wales. If this is an issue and the beautiful screenshots on the Orbx website are not works of Photoshop please let me know how to fix it! Secondly, and by far the most important issue is the fact that the water is BRIGHT GREEN! As you can see in the screenshots below. That's not right! If you know how to fix these issues please let me know. Adam Heit
To explore the new scenery from Orbx I've decided to go on a tour of Wales to see what it has to offer. The first leg was from Cardiff to Swansea.... The Beaver was waiting at Cardiff and will be perfect for this leg Tower has given me clearance to depart, with a left turn after take-off out over the water Turning out towards the bay Flying back over the airport, BA Maintenance Hangar below The first waypoint is the Millennium Stadium After which I make a left turn towards the Taff Ely Wind Farm After the wind farm it's a short leg to Junction 36 of the M4, then head directly to Swansea; 19nm from here accoring to the DME On downwind this LearJet forced his way in, better to fly past him and left him land as he's probably travelling twice as fast Careful not to get too low, don't want to use this propeller as a makeshift tree-chopper Just about to touch down at Swansea. I've turned off shadows so it looks a bit odd! The local zombie makes use of the big hairdryer Thanks for viewing. In total there will be 13 flights; when I've completed them all I'll upload the flightplans as a package for download
The next in our expansion into the UK and Europe. Wales is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and the island of Great Britain. Bordered by England to the east and the Irish Sea to the west, much of Wales' diverse landscape is mountainous. The Capital of Wales is a de facto designation usually applied to Cardiff since 1955. Although it shares a close political and social history with the rest of Great Britain, the country has retained a distinct cultural identity and is officially bilingual. Over 580,000 Welsh language speakers live in Wales, where it is spoken by a majority of the population in the north and west. FTX EU WLS includes a range of custom-built landscapes including farmland, plains and highland to recreate the luscious valleys that Wales is renowned for.
