Russ the gardener... growing digital plants and stuff...

FSX/P3D. PAEN Kenai. It's Russ White's next destination in the SAK. But that is not the destination in the shot you see above. After his highly successful Elstree release, Russ has continued to spend his time over in the little yet densely vegetated afield of EGML Damyns Hall just outside London. This project is the beginning of a new Orbx budget airport series and also new vegetation/grass technology which will be implemented into it. So heavy on the foliage and easy on your wallet. Good and very good!

Very competitive price indeed! And looks mighty good.

I fear that a large proportion of uk VFR pilots use uk photoscenery though....whether they will buy products like these which are superb but just not compatible 'out of the box', even at the budget price point, remains to be seen......

I'd love to buy and fly all of these, and even though I understand how to largely incorporate them with my photoscenery, (which a lot of people don't), I just don't want the hassle of having to mod them all, so I probably won't purchase. Shame really :(

I would imagine that most who buy this have FTX England, since they are kind of designed to go together. All that vegetation looks really cool, hope it doesn't kill fps.

Hope they'll do some that aren't so much in the proximity of London. I bought Elstree and its a truly stunning piece of work by the great Russ White of Orbx. I buy all his works in general. Only problem is I'm going to have to uninstall it cos its the only one of all my sceneries (Orbx or non-Orbx) that performs so drastically poorly even in a C337 that its unusable (2-3 fps). Its such a shame and its not the sceneries' fault...its the proximity to the city of London which is renowned for the worst performance area in FSX. So I'll generally buy nothing near London except the awaited new Heathrow. Which one? I don't know yet...I expect you'll have a lot to do with that decision for me DAndre :-) But, any of these, away from London, I'm in once I can get a few issues sorted with my FTX EU addons. That vegetation looks gorgeous doesn't it. What else could it be if its a Russ White creation :-) Love his and Lars Pinkenburg's work always.

I'm sure many FTX Eng users will, and good luck to them :) There is another market segment out there though who don't and won't...

DAndre Newman said...

Well Kevin, all I can say it if it doesn't fulfill your needs, don't buy it. But these are FTX sceneries and are meant for FTX regions simply put.

Kevin Firth said...

Well I'm buying some of them anyway, even if I have to make some adjustments myself. I'm quite comfortable doing that, in fact I probably enjoy tinkering under the bonnet with scenery as much as flying with it :p. I am acutely aware there is a body of simmers who aren't as comfortable doing that though, is all the point I'm making :) Like you, I want to support the devs behind new scenery, even if I have a gripe or two about other things every now and again! Whatever our viewpoints, there is always more that unites us than divides us....

Oh dear, there appears to be a sale on, airports at £8! I clicked 'add to basket' and 'buy' before even thinking :p
