** ORBX Simulation Systems provided a free PressCopy for this Critical Review.

** AeroSpace Weekly is continuing testing the Aerosoft CRJ Professional, of which a Free PressCopy was Kindly and Pleasantly provided by Aerosoft, for this review. Additionally, AeroSpace Weekly will continue its testing of the Aerosoft CRJ Professional and Intends to test the Microsoft Flight Simulator version thoroughly. The Logical Reasoning Being; so that the Review is Proactive, Diligent, Robust, Definitvely & Clearly Interpretable, Cohesive, ALLInclusive, and Comprehensive.

Textures:

Textures of the product Greatly Exceeds credible and expected industry standards.

All textures for the product are very solid, detailed, defined, and sharp at 4K resolutions.

All airport and locally surrounding terrain textures are Very Solid, as Expected from the high quality ORBX Simulation Systems product pipeline.

Texture Score:

Five (5) out of Five (5) Stars: 5/5

MODELING DETAIL:

Textures of the product Greatly Exceeds credible and expected industry standards.

Detailed and Robust Modeling for all aspects of this product are very solid, detailed, defined, and sharp at 4K resolutions.

All airport modeling details and locally surrounding terrain terrain elevation (Mesh data point densities) are very solid, as expected from the high quality ORBX Simulation Systems product pipeline.

Modeling Detail Score:

Five (5) out of Five (5) Stars: 5/5

PERFORMANCE:

The performance of the product Greatly Exceeds credible and expected industry standards. Specifically, performance in Lockheed Martin Corporation P3Dv5 is improved when using resource intensive Complex High-Fidelity aircraft. Unfortunately, given the Greatly Limited and Essentially Finite Working & Usable Resources, Materials, Architectures, and Infrastructures of P3Dv4 & P3Dv5 are both greatly exceed, including regular and routine crashes to desktop and/or Hard (i.e. The Uncontrollable & Automatic and Complete Computer System SHUTDOWN‘s) Blue Screen Complete system crashes, which are Absolutely No Fault to ORBX Simulation Systems.

Performance Score:

Five (5) out of Five (5) Stars: 5/5

Summary:

ORBX Simulations Systems Constantly Continues to Consistently Spearhead and Champion Creative, Technological, and Marketing Innovations in the HighFidelity Flight Simulation Markets. Historically, airport projects have been owned responsibility by creators in some cases taking hundreds, or thousands or more, of High-Resolution digital photographs On Sites in the Field in order to Digitally Replicate the physically Existing sites. The ORBX TRUEEARTH Product Line had taken overall scenery to a new level and was a foreseeable building block for the latest scenery now culminated in the recently released Microsoft Flight Simulation (i.e. Year 2020 [A.D.]). Given the Limited and Archaic Resources and Infrastructure of the Lockheed Martin Prepar3D flight simulator, ORBX did a SUPERB and PERFECT job on this product, Essentially GREATLY Exceeding the Capabilities and Data Capacity Architecture of the platform. Lastly, ORBX has consistently positively evolved their TRUEEARTH product line as more products are developed.

Final Summed Score:

Twelve (15) out of fifteen (15) points: 15/15 or 100%

5 out of 5 Stars –> A Grade

Based on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (M.I.T.) Standard 5.0 Grading Scale.

FINAL RECOMMENDATION:
