By John A. Stedman TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Orbx scenery for Microsoft Flight Simulator X is quite unusual amongst scenery products. It doesn't pretend to be "photorealistic" as do a number of other add on scenery products: "photorealistic" replaces the default Microsoft scenery that you "fly" over with what is essentially a photograph of the area. Thus you can fly over - and indeed recognise - your own house, but as with most photographs this means that the scenery is two dimensional (which it turn means that when you are flying low things don't look quite as realistic). Photorealistic also means that your graphics card has a great deal of processing to take on board, so that display frames rates suffer (and there's no greater killer of realism on a simulator as a stuttering screen display).

Orbx take a different approach to their scenery add-on products. Mainly they don't pretend that it's photorealistic. What they do is look at the default Microsoft textures (land mass, trees, buildings, etc) for a particular geographic area and replace them with a new land mesh (hills valleys coastline etc) and new textures more appropriate for that area. Now that is a gross over-simplification of what results as they also address roads, railways, rivers, structures,shapes and sizes of towns and - if you fly real aircraft by Visual Flight Rules then this may have started sounding very familiar to you; it's exactly the ground features that you match to a chart to navigate with. Clever. And it works very effectively indeed. Then they look at the seasons and adjust the display accordingly. They look at lighting effects - I could go on.....

Approaching an airfield or three that I'm very familiar with flying into in real life it is quite uncanny how real this product makes Flight Sim X feel.

1.0 out of 5 stars what have done? 13 Oct 2013
I have a asus rog notebook,g750jh-db71, with a i7 4700hq and a gtx 780m graphics. One would have thought the graphics would be good and operate smoothly, but I was wrong. No detailed images, and although set for 50fps it looks more like 5-10 frames/sec. I know there is a lot of patches for this scenery, but I find it impossible to download any of them..

1.0 out of 5 stars Exactly....what have they done ?! 4 Jan 2014
By Hotspur
Decided to try ORBX England as have good/bad reviews. Normally have Playsims VFR - the only down side to that is it uses a lot of memory mainly down to the photographic nature - ORBX uses less memory and is supposed to have very good quality scenery - oh man does it....NOT!!! The scenery is rubbish. For instance my own local airstrip has one or two farms dotted nearby with small barns...ORBX has decided to put office blocks all over the place and round-abouts where there are small lanes. I like to fly VFR on FSX but this is a no,no. My advise is do as I did and waste my money. If you want descent scenery go for Playsims and avoid ORBX like the plague.
