Simon has downloaded a very affordable AEROsoft Gibraltar – and he’s impressed. Framerates with the PMDG 737 were very good, in the high 20s and 30 range, and other ACF even higher. Detail impressive, the night LIT landscape immersive and dynamic. There’s good building variety and waterfront development looks very accurate. The only downside? The Rock doesn’t look all that impressive to Simon.
Also noted and worth mentioning now, Orbx is changing scenery development tactics. Read this update and be sure to take in the images in this post as they’ll give you a fine indication of where this development group is headed.
Now, let’s look at Simon’s images over The Rock!
So, what does the Orbx announcement tell us about things in general? Are there things we need to sit up and take note of as a result of this notice? Is this cause for alarm?
Well… If it takes two devs 12 to 18 months to crank out a huge airport like KSEA or KPDX, and the same two devs can make three smaller airports in a similar time frame, what tactic do you think is going to generate the most revenue?
Does this signal a shift in FsX away from big airport development? Well, one dev making the move is a business strategy, not a trend, but if other devs follow suit? We’ll be watching the scene, keeping an eye out!
Simon will have more soon, so stay tuned. ‘Til then, fly safe… and we’ll seeya next time: Chip
