Orbx: The San Francisco Treat!

FSX/P3D. We'll got good news and bad news I suppose. The good news is, the upcoming Orbx NoCali will stretch far southwest enough to cover the Bay Area. The bad news? It mostly will not be compatible with US Cities San Francisco. I say this because Aerosoft's London is still not compatible with FTX EU and there doesn't seem to be any efforts on either side to get this to work. Many have, but only through a series headaches. Hopefully things will be different here without issues. But then again, after looking at FSDG's Thessaloniki's city scenery, would anyone want a city without night lighting? I'm glad to see Orbx in my back yard, let's hope many airports come with it as well!

Eh, i'm not gonna miss SF nor Chicago, considering they both equally suck at performance. (Yeah i know Chicago is off-topic but i wanted to say)

Step 1: Install ORBX CA
Step 2: Install FB KSFO
Step 3: ??
Step 4: Profit

To be honest, I would be scared to try the combination of OrbX NorCal and US Cities San Francisco. The US Cities San Fran is a Class One frame hog even when you manually disable some bgl's.
What I'm more curious for is the compatiblity with Flightbeam's SFO.
Screenshots of OrbX look great, but I didn't expect it to be anything other than that. As I understand, it's made by the same team that did SAK, so we can expect a top notch product.
Speaking about SAK, anyone know if OrbX will ever take on the rest of Alaska?

The good news? It will be compatible with San Francisco X.

It's a pretty straight forward process, make sure SFO X is installed at a higher priority level than NCA and then we will provide info for which NCA files to turn off.

Additionally the freeware Alcatraz from Aerosoft is also fully compatible with nothing else to do expect put it at a higher layer than NCA.

Ohh man! Orbx NCA with Flightbeam KSFO = WIN!


You get the idea....

Orbx will be releasing a SanFrancisco Cityscape later, much like we did for Portland in PNW. That is full photoreal with night lighting and five seasons and fully annotated.

Plenty of options for everyone!
It will be a great addition to the OrbX world... and flying into Flightbeam's KSFO is great fun...
