Deutschland X [FSX] - RELOADED - Released

Post by horst18519 » Wed Dec 19, 2012 11:39 am

After some time of silent development, we have good news for you:

The reloaded release of Deutschland X is very close!

As you might know, we had a couple of issues with the first release back in february. Unfortunately, we couldn't solve some of them with the publisher back then. We not only decided to switch the publisher (DEX will now be available as direct download from SimMarket) but also to make sure that installation and 3rd party addon compatibility work better than before. With going to SimMarket we can also make support easier for you as you don't have to ask the publisher support first but can come directly to us, the developer.

Following user requests, we also decided to split up the DEX North pack into two seperate packs for those who are mostly interested in the 3D objects like landmarks, wind generators, airport objects...
The Landmarks&Airports Pack can be combined with the Terrain Pack or other terrain addons like VFR Germany, UTX, GEX and the soon to be released ftx Global.
Of course, you can also get the DEX Complete Pack to have everything you want and need.

DEX Features:
  • Complete coverage of Germany (divided in 4 areas North, West, East, South)
  • Photorealistic textures and terrain
  • More than 1.000.000 terrain features (roads, railways, power lines, rivers,...) using up-to-date OSM data
  • Up to 500 different custom buildings/objects per area, plus more than 15.000 wind generators
  • Authentic airport buildings for all airports/airfields *
  • Complete coverage of all ICAO charts features (airports, towers, lighthouses, obstructions,...)
  • Typical german terrain features
  • Custom seasonal and night textures
  • Dynamic seasonal changes and precipitation coverage, based on meteorological data
  • New realistic scenery effects
  • Custom autogenerated scenery objects
  • Compatible with any other addon including VFR Germany **
  • Performance-friendly, ideal to combine with addon airport sceneries
* No detailed airport sceneries included, combination with German Airports / German Airfields is possible.
** DEX can be used in combination with VFR Germany for users who want to use the VFR Germany photoscenery in summer. DEX works as an enhancement (more realistic landmarks, additional airport objects) for VFR Germany in this case.

Hi Thorsten,

the preview looks promising! This is something I have been waiting for since no really good coverage for Germany available.

Any estimated time frame when we can expect the first part?



Best regards,

Axel

Well, that looks really promising...

Unfortunatly i recently bought VFR-Germany Nord to improve the Area arround Hamburg, inclusive EDHI, i spent several weeks to learn to deal with GMAX to build the Hangars there...and gave up.
So, thanks for including Finki, also in case of giving a platform for further own work.

By the way, basically there´s no need to add the Transrapid Rail near Lathen, they just started to wreck it in theese days :(. In a few month this testbed will be only a Episode in German history.

Regarding the 15000 wind generators: Will they be generic or do you design different types and different sizes? ( Ja ich weiß, "geht´s noch"? :D )

We got requests to show some comparison images between DEX and other versions. We decided to not only give you that but compare everything to reality as well.

First, somewhere in Lower Saxony, near Rothenburg:

The real thing

Deutschland X
DEX1_Rotenburg_VFRG.jpg
VFR Germany 2
DEX1_Rotenburg_UTX.jpg
UTX Europe
In Schleswig-Holstein, near Kiel:

Deutschland X
DEX1_Dobersdorf_VFRG.jpg
VFR Germany 2
DEX1_Dobersdorf_UTX.jpg
UTX Europe
And finally, Lübeck:

Deutschland X

VFR Germany 2

You'll see that - despite the fact that it is still very difficult to make FSX look like the real thing - we're getting pretty close with DEX.

Great! Can't wait! :)

How will DEX be devided?

Is Lübeck the east end of this part or will it completely go up to the Polish border and whole DEX devided from north to south?

Can you show us a map with the four parts? :)

Best regards,

Axel

You can learn about the DEX areas and borders as well as the included airports from this KML file: http://files.flightsimdevelopmentgroup. ... _Areas.kml
