Orbx Announces First TrueEarth Washington Destination

 

The first TrueEarth Washington Airport developed by Orbx will be 74S Anacortes for X-Plane 11.

The original airport was developed by Jarrad Marshall and brought to X-Plane 11 by Turbulent Designs. It will feature an extended high-resolution coverage area encompassing the City of Anacortes, as well as several bonus landing strips and helipads including 21H Skyline seaplane base, Burrows Island Lighthouse Helipad and WA02 Island Hospital Heliport.

Anacortes Airport will feature ultra-detailed modelling and texturing, along with hand-placed autogen, dozen landmarks and points of interest. The scenery seamlessly integrates with TrueEarth US Washington and uses 7cm, 15cm and 60cm photoreal imagery.

Coverage Map

Key Features:

  • Detail static aircraft local to Anacortes
  • Ultra-detail Deception Pass Bridge
  • Hand-placed autogen vegetation and buildings
  • More than a dozen local landmarks and points of interest
  • Detailed ground polygons with a sloped runway
  • Seamlessly blends into TrueEarth US Washington
  • Designed for good performance.

Bonus Landing Areas

74S will soon be available to purchase from OrbxDirect for AUD$32.95 (approx. $22.80/€17.95/£18.00). Previous customers of 74S for FSX and P3D will receive a 40% discount off the X-Plane version.

Please also note that for the best experience, Orbx recommends using 74S in conjunction with TrueEarth US Washington. The scenery will work without it, although some users may experience the following:

  • Missing or misplaced forests
  • Missing or misplaced buildings surrounding the airport
  • Photoreal blending.
