Orbx's Global openLC Africa

Africa, the wild continent!

I was a little surprised to see the announcement of this latest landclass product from Orbx, because it was rumoured that the company had shelved it due to the impending release of FS2020.

Of course, I’m talking about Orbx Global openLC Africa, which I believe is the company’s largest landclass product to date. It covers a colossal 30 million square kilometres of the world’s most diverse landscape, which in terms of scale is a huge undertaking for the Orbx design team. The package includes a more accurate and higher resolution mesh, covered by over 6GB of new landclass textures that are more representative of the areas they depict.
