Announcing The NEW MegaSceneryEarth 4X
4X Means 4
Times The Resolution Of Version 2.0
You'll soon be
flying a photoreal world with complete states and complete
50 cm per pixel throughout in FSX, FSX:STEAM and PREPAR3D.
We've got the greatest news that users of Microsoft Flight Simulator X and
derivative simulators, FSX: Steam Edition and Prepar3D, have heard in a
long time.... MegaSceneryEarth just got 4 times better!
That's 4 times clearer, 4 times crisper and 4 times more realistic than ever
before with the new MegaSceneryEarth 4X
series of photo-scenery. It's now going to be Ultra-Res - everywhere you
When we launched MegaSceneryEarth 2.0 back in 2012, we weren't even aware
of the mammoth project it was going to be but mammoth it was as we
produced over 4.5 million square miles of photoscenery created from
aerial photography. We were rolling titles out at a rapid rate of around 1
major area every 10 days with dozens of computers processing terabytes of
aerial photo data into a scenery format ready to be used and flown over
with Microsoft Flight Simulator X. We completed the entire USA lower 48 as
well as a dozen or so European countries all at 1 meter per pixel
resolution. At that time we had to settle for and deliver our users 1
meter per pixel scenery. There was a number of factors to consider: 1. End
users' easily acquirable large data storage capabilities 2. Deliverability
of the scenery to you the end user via the internet which considered
typical broadband speeds and capability of our server infrastructure 3.
End user's computer performance and 4. Availability of high quality 50 cm
After the major states and some major countries were done at 1 meter per
pixel, we decided to increase the resolution with our Ultra Res Cities and
Ultra Res National Parks series. These Ultra-Res Areas enabled us to give
you smaller areas of 50 cm per pixel resolution while we were testing the
viability of delivering larger areas all in 50 cm ultra-resolution. In
that time larger and faster hard drives, and faster internet connections
and faster processors and more RAM had become the norm as technology
continues to rapidly progress. So this lead us to this point today
where we can now proudly deliver, to you, an ultra-res scenery
experience, 4 times the previous resolution, everywhere
you fly in Microsoft Flight Simulator X, FSX: Steam Edition and Lockheed
Martin's Prepar3D V1.X and V2.X.
Here's the real sweet point we want to make also.... we've optimized
the compression for the fourfold resolution scenery such that you
won't be requiring 4 times the disk space. We've managed to optimize such
that you will only require double the disk space instead of 4.
The biggest drawback of the 1 meter V2.0 scenery was that it began to blur
quite substantially at altitudes below 2,500 feet. Version 4X is a whole
different ballgame with scenery remaining clear and crisp and quite
satisfactory even down to 500 ft levels. The
screenshots below were taken at 1,500
feet AGL near Jacksonville FL.
Just as in the release of the version 2 titles we are going to roll the
areas out as fast as we can. We expect to be releasing new US states
and countries at a rate of around 1 per 7 to 14 days. Our first US
state, MegaSceneryEarth 4X - Florida will be released and available for
purchase on 1 October 2015. That's just a little over 10 days away.
Pricing & Upgrades
We're pleased to be able to offer you this 4X resolution scenery
without any price increase. Version 4X areas will all be priced
similarly to the current V2.0 pricing. This means that all states
depending upon size will be typically priced at between $9.95 and $39.95
with the super-massive states such as CA and TX divided into 3 smaller
The good news for ALL owners of version 2.0 areas is that all areas that
were previously purchased in version 2.0 will be available at an
upgrade price of 50% discount.
we build 4X titles, we will still make available for sale the current V2.0
titles at 50% discount. When the 4X area becomes available you will also
be eligible for an upgrade to the 4X title at 50% discount.
Stay tuned for more information on MegaSceneryEarth 4X as time progresses
over the next 2 weeks or so.
We are very
excited about this new MegaSceneryEarth 4X and I hope you are just as
