Monument Valley is coming to X-Plane 11 after Orbx announced the development of scenery for the region today.
In a post to the Orbx forums, Ed Correia said: “We are delighted to welcome back to Orbx the Mountain Maestro himself, Frank Dainese, who produced the much-acclaimed Monument Valley, Devils Tower and Yosemite National Park sceneries for FSX and P3D. In collaboration with development partner Fabio Bellini, Frank brings a completely re-done Monument Valley experience for XP11, adding entirely new tech and many new features not previously seen.
He continued: “One of the most iconic landmarks of the American West, Monument Valley is a natural wonder situated along the Arizona/Utah border, in close proximity to the Grand Canyon, and just a short flight away from other well-known destinations such as Las Vegas, Phoenix, Sedona, Telluride and Flagstaff. Known as the backdrop to many well-loved films from the Golden Era of Hollywood, the park is situated within the Navajo Nation and is visited by tens of thousands of tourists each year.”
According to Orbx, ‘the scenery features 21 3D models of the main peaks, with the data being derived from digital elevation model (DEM) and then reworked and finished off with 4K textures! The mesh for the scenery has been recompiled as well as with the terrain being rebuilt with texture polygons and does not rely on any orthoimagery.’
