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.
