Kia ora Te Wai Pounamu!

At long last, 151,215 square km of the epicly scenic New Zealand South Island in full FTX glory! Embrace the majesty of the Southern Alps and the mighty Aoraki (Mount Cook: 12,316ft), the Canterbury Plains to the east and the Fox and Franz Josef glaciers on the west coast. There is an endless list of wonderful scenery to absorb; Fiordland, Marlborough region, Banks Peninsula, Milford Sound, over 3,820 lakes and much more. All major and minor airports have been given a complete upgrade and the region features brand new custom ground textures, native NZ tree models, precise autogen annotation and a spectacular 10m mesh. Like all Orbx FTX regions we include accurate roads, rivers, lakes, railways, bridges, vertical obstructions, shores, mudflats, glaciers and coastlines. This is truly one of the most anticipated Orbx releases ever!
  • Over 151,000 sq km of FTX scenery!
  • Brand new beautiful ground textures
  • New trees made from local photographs
  • Roads, rivers, coastlines, lakes, rail
  • All major and many minor airports upgraded
  • Custom NZ airport objects and markings
  • Photoreal mountain peaks and glaciers
  • A huge number of polygon landclass areas
  • Hand-crafted landclass for the entire region
  • Seamlessly joins FTX Australia for tran-Tasman flights
  • Hand placed super-accurate autogen

Holy Cow! NZSI data blazing down at 2.5MB/Sec or more. Will be done in 6 or 7 more minutes, A bit less than 20 minutes altogether! Super Fast!

Kind regards,

Edit: Down to 2.1MB/Sec now, so others must be jumping on board.

2nd Edit: Slowing to about 1.8MN/Sec but still not bad at all! 2 minutes left..

I just got it in from my Aussie server at 15Mbps

Maybe you should reset/reboot your modem mate :)

Just do a powercycle, unplug the modem for 30 seconds to a minute and plug it back in and let it reconnect, try it then :) Also with a download of this magnitude, try using something like www.getright.com :)

Congratulations and thank you Orbx for all the effort in creating and releasing this awesome scenery. And thanks Adrian/Jay for great download speeds. I can imagine you've organised extra cooling for the servers for this hot release :).

I have only had a quick look so far, as I really must go to work (I can't call in sick), but from what I've seen you've done a fantastic job at creating my home country. Today is going to be a long day at work.

A quick fly out of Milford Sound and Picton and I am very impressed (as I am with all your scenery) with what you've done. Very happy!

Thanks!

~ Martin
