Together with the TE release go various updates for freeware and payware airports in this region. For V5 I can tell it is:

OS9, 11S, 1S2, 1WA6, 2S1, 2W3, 3W5, 7WA3, KBVS, KCMW, KFHR, KHQM, KORS, KTIW, S43, S93, W16 and WA56.

Not all ORBX airports in the Washington area are V5 compatible yet, though. You won't even see them in ORBX central.

There is not much RTMM stuff in WA (There is the PNW Scenery collection piece which has some places in the very northern part) but wouldn't expect that they would conflict. TE actually looks a nice blend of LC plus a touch of photo real but have an eye notice that the TE WA product release announcement contains troubleshooting links?  Not a great sign.. just saying! but if you get it you can always yank it out or turn it off for the price. lol.

I do not own any of the TE products yet.
I fear my quite outdated flightsim PC will not handle TE scenery for good.

I‘m wondering if a TE scenery for PFJ and SAK area is planned by ORBX.......

The trouble shooting options provided at release are to help with some common problems that users have had with other new scenery installations such as having their sliders too far to the left.  It's also trying to provide a place to post any "known issues" which is a nice idea that I have not seen Orbx do before.

Actually TrueEarth Washington is all photoreal (ortho) terrain created from purchased aerial imagery except where Orbx hand annotated changes to adjust the original aerial imagery due to colors and other issues that can arise when blending together many different blocks of aerial imagery.  At 2,000 AGL it is beautiful.  Of course, when you get very close to ortho terrain imagery it does get blurry.  Here are two comparison pics showing the same area taken at 1,500 AGL:  First pic just has a land class region enabled (CRM in this case) and 2nd pic has TrueEarth US Washington enabled:

    Orbx Region enabled:
   

    Orbx TrueEarth US Washington enabled
   

There is only summer season, but it is beautiful!

Rod,
the picture looks great!
But only summer.....so a TE south Alaska will probably not be really full experience.
For winter season there‘s still the old Orbx SAK needed for a nice experience?
I don‘t wanna fly only in summer season in RTMM areas........

Also, I‘m wondering how it will look from 200-500 ft AGL.....altitude I‘m flying with my helos.

I have been running True Earth Great Britain scenery for months in preparation for TE Washington so I understand the load on the system etc.    You can leave PNW running underneath it.  When you want to run a non-summer season, just turn off the 4 PNW scenery entries.

Karl

A few miles west of S93. Just flew the trip from Darrington to Concrete, WA.  Wow!  So much prettier than the regional implementation.  It was so nice to see the Sauk and then Sakit rivers continue in photorealistic beauty for the whole trip!

Just pity that its only one season. Ok 4 could be a problem - too many space on disc but I prefer winter textures also (so summer for spring/summer/autumn/winter and winter textures for hard winter). Pity that FTX didnt go this way.
