TrueEarth Northern California Preview

Orbx has released preview images TrueEarth Northern California for X-Plane 11.

Covering more than 212,000km2, the package will feature a wide-range of landscapes, detailed mountains, accurate coastlines and colour corrected orthoimagery with PBR effects. Millions of trees have been accurately placed throughout the entire region and grouped together to create an immersive environment. The vegetation has been hand-coloured to ensure it blends in perfectly with the ground textures.

Nearly 1,000 custom PBR POIs placed around the state; including San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, Silicon Valley and many, many more. All major cities accurately modelled, including SFO, Sacramento, San Jose, Oakland, Monterey, Fresno, Redding and many others.

Northern California will be available in two versions – high definition (HD) 212GB and standard definition (SD) 53GB with a lower texture resolution and smoother performance.


  • San Francisco Cityscape crafted with full PBR effects
  • Ultra-detailed elevation mesh sourced from 10m DEM
  • Hand-cleaned water-masking
  • Marinas have hand-placed 3D boats.

The package will blend in seamlessly with TrueEarth US Oregon and the upcoming TrueEarth US Southern California (in development) to provide even more US coverage.

Stay tuned for more previews over the coming week.
