Anything in the desert southwest. Basically how will this stack up to MSE for areas like Vegas, Phoenix area, New Mexico, Barstow, Death Valley, Moab, Nevada, etc. I've used MSE before as pre-flight familiarization for real world flying into unfamiliar strips. Anxious to see how this pans out for these areas.

Not going to happen. Sorry. Too much to install/uninstall. Besides, I don't use those products in P3D anyway.

DAndre Newman said...

Okay, all of the above will be added to the list. Again, no promises that I will get to all of them today.

Sorry, but I'm not impressed at all by FTX Global. As usual a lot of hype and over-marketing. The reason we were never shown screenshots of Africa, like the Sahara, is that it looks horrible:

http://oi42.tinypic.com/2u55dn8.jpg

The above shot was taken over Mauritania, Western Sahara. And here is a region in Egypt, NW of Sharm el-Sheikh, again pretty horrible.

And now for the biggest disappointment, in DX10 mode the daytime light placement shows a black square, because someone at Orbx didn't do their work properly:

http://oi40.tinypic.com/2nlm9y.jpg
http://oi39.tinypic.com/vapus.jpg

Both shots taken over Frankfurt, Germany. Sorry, but I expect no black squares from a product costing over US$ 90! And since more and more users are using the fixed DX10 mode, Orbx should do better than release something with such a severe problem!



Pirx said...

Great job, DAndre. Thanks,

About the images... Although this is an improve compared to the default landscape, I still want more.

Barcelona doesn't look as it is in real. Too much trees and houses; in reality there are more big buildings and very more cement. I don't like how buildings and roads step the images below.

Is it so difficult to buy the roads data from Garmin, Google or whatever?

In any case, sure there will be updates.

Frederik Hagedorn said...

Here is the other Frankfurt shot:

http://oi41.tinypic.com/2ptv71u.jpg

DAndre Newman said...

Thanks Pirx,

but don't give me all the credit. Dom kicked ass on some of these too! Otherwise it would have taken a week to fill all the requests.

As for FTXGlobal. Remember, these are only a nice texture replacement. There are many things already that I don't like about it personally which I will cover in an upcoming review. But it's far better than default and any other similar replacement product by way far.

Well, now that I think about it, in many respects, FranceVFR is much better and far more accurate. But as they are only doing photoreal without autogen, screw that.

So overall I am very happy with it.

But you must also keep in mind that Orbx will start to release Open LC regions between Q4 2013 and Q3 2014 (additional fees) that will basically bring FTXGlobal up to standards of the usual FTX regions like PNW, England etc. So that's what I am really waiting for.

So only FVFR can compete with Orbx but that's only if they apply their 3D Automation technology on a large scale otherwise, Orbx will quickly dominate the market. Not that I have an issue with that as long as the quality stay's good and the prices reasonable.

DAndre Newman said...

Hey Fred,

I do expect many updates to follow as more users start to report on these issues they discover such as yours. It's a new thing for Orbx, and I am confident they will refine it over time.

OmniAtlas said...

Where are the China shots? You know, the country with the most freaking people in the planet? :)

Jason Mableton said...

Perhaps John from Orbx could explain how he can justify a price of over US$ 90 for FTX Global. I've seen a lot of screenshots here and on other sites since the release, and I honestly do not feel that this product is worth spending so much money on.

Best Buy were selling FSX for US$ 49.99 and the deluxe version for US$ 69.99 back in October 2006. And now Orbx reckons that we should pay even more than the whole software package initially cost us, just to upgrade some autogen textures? To me that just doesn't seem right and I feel it is way overpriced.

DAndre Newman said...

Simmah down dude. Do you see any reader requests for Mainland China? Please try to read the post before you start shooting off.

It's not likely we will accept any requests from you with that attitude.

HighFlyer said...

DX10 users beware! Spending US$ 90 on FTX Global will totally ruin your flying experience, as the new 3D lights system that Orbx apparently "nailed" will actually "nail" your FSX installation and make it unusable in DX10. See below what Orbx has in store for you if you use DX10:

http://i.imgur.com/llMjsXD.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/9l8epwk.jpg
http://i.imgur.com/O9PuYaW.jpg

Orbx know full well that the only way to use some of their regions with complex add-on airports to avoid OOMs is to fly in DX10 mode. For Orbx to release a product that is as expensive as it is, and effectively release it in light of the fact that it totally breaks your DX10 installaion is just taken the piss!

Nope. Need a city.

Never mind, Las Vegas and Phoenix screens prove FTX can't do our desert southwest. I've lived and flown here real world for 52 years, and so far what I've seen isn't even close. I'm sticking with MSE. Hopefully those in other parts of the world are seeing more believable renditions in ftx of their areas.

Anders Halstæd said...

Sorry I am very upset right now. In February 2013 John Venema made this statement when asked about FTX Global and DX10 compatibility:

Posted 14 February 2013 - 05:06 PM
Yes it will, as long as you apply some of the recent DX10 fixes discovered on various forums. It will present exactly the same DX10 compatibility as default FSX does.

(Source: http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/52819-orbx-announces-ftx-global-to-be-released-in-2013/page-9)

Sorry, but this is a total lie! I installed FTX Global and I have black squares everywhere, just like Frederik and HighFlyer have reported.

Is this some kind of bad joke Orbx? I spent EUR 70 on a product that was promised with DX10 compatibility and now I have black squares everywhere in day and night!

Bad joke gets my vote

Luiz Henrique Machado said...

imagine in Brazil NE... only airport and desert (we don´t have full desert here) FTX make a strongest upgrade, of course, i guess that now, w/ less pressure, will develop patches to fix this. The major problem, today, for me, is the Landclass. coastal lines "broken", forget to try a VFR only w/ land remarks, specially following beaches and rivers (as old stilish). I agree, Chris. need some improvements, but now aim new and promissing horizons!

Luiz Henrique Machado said...

Unfortunatelly, i almost went to DX10 preview (read OOM in this forum).... now, can handle or OOM, or several mods.

Martin Sutherland said...

I'm so happy I didn't waste my money on this. I haven't seen any convincing user screenshots. The difference is there, but it's not worth spending that much money for what little difference there appears to be.

And the fact that it doesn't work in DX10 even though this was promised, it outrageous.

WeedCargoFlyer said...

Please did faster the screenshots i hate it to wait. From now i didnt buy it its not worth. The Anonymos Post was the best -i laughed sooo much. +1 for bad jokes get my vote thumbs up. And please dont delte postings, remember you cry about avsim and now you do the same.

DAndre Newman said...

I have said it before many times and i'll say it again, you don't like the way we do things? Feel free to go elsewhere.

We don't respond well to people telling us how to run this blog. Don't like it? make your own. You hate to wait? Then get off your lazy ass and buy the product and post your own shots.

We don't allow anonymous comments. Period. Clearly you were smart enough to at least figure that out.

You are not a customer here. You have no rights to anything here. You are getting a free service. Remember that.

And we don't cry about Avsim. We are both users of that site. Get your facts straight.

We do this work for the community and we work hard at it. It really pisses me off when ungrateful little trolls like you have the audacity to show up and complain about something you are getting for free.

Feel free not to return if this is the way you wish to say thanks for the work we do.

If anything can show what a total failure FTX Global is in my eyes, not to mention the whole DX10 compatibility lie, then it's these two shots. Looks like Hong Kong needs to be rearranged with some heavy duty bulldozers.

First result in google earth was a small town in PA with the same name with like 5 houses.

Brad said...

I like the dessert dunes textures, very nice effect...Hong Kong does indeed like rather poor and to go on the basis that a user has Flytampa Kai Tak to hide its almost lack of attention is abit of a cheek. Barcelona as the majority of spain is very dry and yellow like from above, Barca needs a really good landclass upgrade and far drier texture base files, therhe screes too much green going on there via the screenshots. Also some or most of the Caribbean islands also look abit average...i do want to buy this but updates and improvements are important...Malaga, Barca (Spain as a whole needs some real work)

Brad said...

Also if i had Flight1 Ground Environment X Europe and North America...would i need to remove them both seeing as this (FTX Global)would overwrite those addons intentions in the first place?

Wilton said...

I was really looking forward to this, however, I must say that I'm disappointed. I'm surprised to see very few palm trees and an overabundance of fir trees in the tropical regions. To me, its not a $100 upgrade. In fact, it looks the same a the default with more trees. ORBX's preview shots looked way better than the shots above. Did ORBX edit their preview shots?

Jens said...

Thank you so much for all the pictures! Nice work!

Sean McFadden said...

So where is John Venema from Orbx now to help explain why his new DX10 compatible product has effectively broken every DX10 installation out there?

It's all good and well to show up here and boast about how FTX Global will be a game changer, and now that tons of people have been conned into buying a product that doesn't live up to what it's meant to deliver, no word from Orbx?

John's "we nailed it" remark about the 3D lights system reminds me of the 2003 Mission Accomplished stunt George W. Bush pulled off on the USS Abraham Lincoln. Orbx have failed to deliver what they promised!

Kaspars said...

Riga!

Wilton said...

Most likely John and Orbx are busy creating a DX10 patch which explains why he/they have been silent at least on ADX. I think we need to hold off on the Orbx bashing until we hear from them directly. They said it would be DX10 compatible so give them a chance to make it DX10 compatible. It's been 4 days since Orbx released FTX Global...be patient.

Orbx is one of the best and their customer support is excellent. I suggest posting your concerns on their support forums and see what they say.

I think this is all going to work out for everyone in the near future.

I'll hold my ground on the price...I still think its quite steep.

Any reports on FPS hits?

Luiz Henrique Machado said...

no, just some FPS hit when has a lot of clouds, or Strong sceneries, as happens before FTXG. But FPS impact only FTXG and default sceneries w/out clouds, for me, didn´t happen.

Luiz Henrique Machado said...

no, only in stronger sceneries or ORBX areas, as happened before FTXG (its so light, according my tests)

I am surprised , its amazing! I am sceptic on all new addons, especially on that prices, but that gives VFR a complete new kick !!! In addition with UTX, it changes everything. Phantastic, unbelieveble that this is just a texture replacement. Good work, guys !

Only one issue : there are too much trees on big cities areas, is there a trick to reduce no. of trees in big city areas only ?
