Orbx Releases TrueEarth Oregon


Orbx has announced TrueEarth US Oregon for X-Plane 11 is out now.

The package is a highly detailed recreation of Oregon state with hand-corrected and sharpened aerial imagery and water masking at 2m per pixel. Autogen buildings have also been customised with residential areas feature Oregon-style houses and vegetation accurate to the region.

All POIs were designed using PBR (Physically Based Rendering), so they reflect sun and rain. Of special note to aviation fans is the Tillamook Air Museum which features a giant US Navy blimp hangar.

Portland has been overhauled and has been given the Orbx CityScape treatment, resulting in a stunning urban experience. Major cities and towns such as Eugene, Corvallis, and Salem have also been enhanced.

Custom mesh has been made from 10m Digital Elevation Model (DEM) and used LiDAR data to ensure accurate building and tree heights.
