AU Australia v2 Released

 

Orbx has announced that Australia v2 is now available for FSX and Prepar3D.

Australia v2 is a landclass-style region that brings together everything on a massive scale. Almost 700 airports have been upgraded or created from scratch, enabling you to criss-cross the country in VFR. Coastlines, waterbodies, road, rail and powerline networks have been recreated from scratch, using the latest high-fidelity data to vastly improve accuracy and detail across the continent.

Towns, urban centres and other settlements have been reworked too; diversity, realism and accuracy greatly improve the immersion, whether that be flying cross-country long-haul or local VFR hops. Terrain elevation mesh has been brought to the next level; incorporating the latest data from the Australian Government, the new HD mesh makes a huge difference on both a small and large scale. In addition to these major re-workings, over 50 large-scale photoreal points of interest have been created from scratch to represent well-known geological and man-made features. Mine sites, dry lakes, tidal water bodies, unusual geographical formations and more have been expertly edited, colourised and blended to the surrounding terrain. The largest of these features is the Great Barrier Reef; recreated in photoreal quality.

AUv2 also features a high-definition Melbourne Cityscape. The inner suburbs of Melbourne have been brought to life in full photoreal detail. 30cm ground textures, complete custom modelling for CBD blocks, detailed POIs, hand-placed autogen vegetation and night lighting, which brings the city to life.
