Orbx Releases TrueEarth Great Britain South for X-Plane 12

Orbx recently announced the release of their next TrueEarth iteration for X-Plane 12, the TrueEarth Great Britain South. The TrueEarth project was created to improve the ground layout and appearance for stunning VFR flights. The community greatly valued the release of TrueEarth Great Britain North but was still missing the southern part of the country to explore in full detail, which Orbx now delivered.

Featuring hundreds of iconic UK landmarks, including Tintagel, Cardiff City Stadium, Brighton Pier, and Buckingham Palace. Additionally, they have placed 130 million trees with individually set heights, 13.2 million buildings, and an accurate road and rail network, based on data from 2018

The key features of TrueEarth Great Britain South include a 42,000-square-mile (107,349-square-kilometre) coverage area and hand-placed and custom-modelled landmarks like bridges, skyscrapers, castles, and piers. Additionally, the product utilizes new autogen technology to incorporate numerous realistic UK-themed houses.
