Orbx AU Australia V2, Official Introduction

AUSTRALIA – Jarrad Marshall of Orbx has posted the official project introduction for AU Australia V2 for both FSX and Prepar3D. The scenery is a comprehensive and “monumental” redesign of the original Australia region. Features include 8 million square kilometres of detailed coverage, an Ultra-HD Melbourne cityscape, almost 700 updated or new airports, 50+ large scale photoreal POI locations (such as the Great Barrier Reef), high quality mesh, improved vector data, and much more.

Keep in mind, unlike the Orbx TrueEarth series, Australia V2 is a landclass-style region. Although no release timeline was provided, Jarrad notes that the team is “…working extremely hard in the background putting the final touches on this huge project….”
