On Saturday, it was announced by John Venema that details of TrueEarth Great Britain South would be released today, and sticking by his words, a full description of everything to be included in Service Pack 1 (SP1) has indeed been released. Users within Great Britain will recognise much of what has been improved and added, especially with Points of Interest (POIs).

Below, is a list of the main additions and improvements in SP1:

  • Removed buildings from airports (as long as they have a boundary set in X-Plane)
  • Added Ambient Occlusion (AO) ground and wall effects to autogen
  • Updated autogen to PBR
  • Upgraded tree placement algorithm (forests are now even more accurate)
  • Updates to autogen placement, fixed reported building rotation bugs
  • Made the roads darker to better match the ortho, and these are now enabled by default
  • Added supermarkets (Sainsbury's, Lidl, Morrisons, ASDA and IKEA)
  • Added fast food outlets
  • Numerous small bug fixes with object placements
  • Some optimisation to London buildings to improve performance

In addition, a total of 344 POIs have been added, which includes:

  • Many castles
  • Stately homes
  • Every stadium over 7,500 seats
  • Many cathedrals
  • Bridges
  • Other POIs
