Orbx - openLC Africa Released

    Orbx has been telling us about this scenery for a long time and now finally openLC Africa is available for FSX/P3D. It transforms the landclass in your sim to better match the real world, and provides a much richer experience for details as you fly over its stunning landscape. This makes Africa much more representative of the real world, regardless of the type of flying you do in the region.
