In a post to the Orbx forums, Community and Marketing Manager, Aimee Sanjari said: “The most anticipated X-Plane announcement of 2019 is here! Following on from last week’s sneak peek video, here are the details.”
Covering a 91,875 square mile area, TrueEarth US Washington covers most of the state of Washington and also parts of British Columbia in Canada and Oregon.
The scenery package also includes over 1,000 iconic landmarks from Victoria and its beautiful harbour to the Seattle city skyline, its stadiums and vibrant waterfront.

Optional HD Pack
TrueEarth USA Washington uses efficient and optimised autogen, tree, 3D model and building facade textures for great performance on almost all mid-spec PCs, however for more powerful PCs with GPUs with at least 11GB of VRAM, we recommend purchasing the optional HD pack for better fidelity and clarity.

- 2048 textures for the Terraflora trees
- BONUS WA56 Israel’s Farm Private Strip included
- Enhanced replacement and additional 3D buildings for the Seattle urban airports, designed to enhance the XP11 Gateway airports
- A control panel so you can toggle between SD, HD and UHD textures
It’s recommend a PC with an i5/i7/i9 class CPU clocked to at least 4.6GHz or higher and a Nvidia 1080 class GPU with at least 11GB OF VRAM to use the HD Pack.
The TrueEarth US Washington optional HD pack will be an additional $14.95 AUD (approx. USD $10.60/ €9.45 / £8.15)
