Just finished a flight in South America from Brasilia to Rio with the new Orbx Global textures installed. Puts a whole new life into South America, even at 31000 feet! I'd been saving up $$$ for this gem for a while now and so far it seems worth the $100.

Sorry about the Westjet paint. I wanted to fly the NGX 600 for this and it was the only thing I had Canadian for it.

Here's some shots of my new South America: Only additional scenery is Scenery Tech Landclass and Genesis Mesh.

Looks great Barry. Is this a complete, north to south, South America?


:oops: OK I just saw the post from Rob and Barry.

Yes, it covers the entire world. I meant to add - if anyone would like to see a particular place, just post an airport and I'll try to oblige.

Barry got bite by the bug too eh. Well I am also a victim. Nunavut, NWT look much much better then default as does Texas where I am atm RW stationed training USCG pilots in Fire fighting and control using the Jay-hawks and Dolphin's. Overall i am very impressed with the Global and my frames are solid and smoother. Have to make my way into Mexico in global soon and then back towards Vancouver Is.

Oh, you're such a fine fellow. :D (Come to think of it, try Ottawa or Thunder Bay or Toronto - any place we're used to seeing.)

But this is seriously amazing. It looks as good as the BC and WA Orbx areas I bought before. Now the entire planet. Hey, does that include the oceans? :wink:

Picked it up. Definitely makes northern Canada look less like a desert and more like tundra.
