• ORBX: Introducing CityScene Gold Coast

    ORBX - CityScene Gold Coast

    CityScene Gold Coast is Allen Kriesman's first project with Orbx, and recreates the entire City of Gold Coast and surrounds. A long-awaited return to our Australian roots after a hiatus of several years, Goldy has been designed in parallel with Matteo's YBCG Gold Coast International Airport (more news on that soon!). The CityScene captures one of Australia's favourite tourist destinations in complete detail; explore 600 sq km of beautiful beaches, urban landscapes, hotels, towers and waterways. As a bonus, Allen (with the help of Jordan Gough) has included lite renditions of several helipad locations, and Southport Flying Club (YSPT), perfect for launching low-and-slow flights over the coverage area.

    ORBX - CityScene Gold Coast

    As Australia's largest non-capital city, Gold Coast has long been famous for it's beaches, surfing and weather. After a massive development boom in the 1980s, the population of the area is now over 600,000, as well as being home to dozens of skyscrapers, including Q1, the tallest building in Australia. The area straddles the New South Wales - Queensland border; Brisbane lies 65km to the north, whilst major NSW regional centres such as Balina, Byron Bay, Coffs Harbour and Port Macquarie lie just to the south. One of the features of the calendar is the Gold Coast 600 Supercar Motor Event; held in the centre of the city, the event is a launching stage for spectacular aerial displays from the RAAF. Given it's southern Queensland location, Gold Coast is the perfect centre for short airline flights to well-loved Orbx destinations such as Brisbane, Coffs, Port Mac, Hervey Bay, Bundaberg, Cairns, Tamworth and Bathurst. Talking of airline flights, CityScene Gold Coast is prepared and ready for the upcoming Gold Coast Intl; a simple placeholder airport representation has been included as an interim measure until the full HD airport is ready as a separate product.

      I have several of the Ultimate Terrain cityscapes, and really enjoyed them and the price point....While I understand the technology is amazing, the price point for this product is only for those that really need local scenery or those with deep pockets. I admire this move to this sort of product but am not enticed to buy at this price. Try $10.

      XP11 has accurate cityscape scenery without paying this much for a small area.

      How much is it then? It certainly is spectacular. One question: is the water a paint job? Or is it really "water" and a float plane can land?

      $24.95 AUD, American's get a better deal.

      I would rather put that money toward another good plane at this point or a new airport.
      Don't know about the water Roger. Also traffic on roads.
      I see from someone's screenshots that the larger buildings show up really bright towards nighttime, doesn't seem realistic perhaps it was late sun reflections but everything else was dark.
