Black Marble is coming!!!

You’re all probably wondering what is Black Marble all about…
let me shade some light
^_^, Black Marble is the missing link in Night Environment,
You can look at it as Night Environment light weight Global sibling,

With Black Marble we convert Sim’s native night environment worldwide to match visually our full Night Environment regions,
This is our worldwide Global “filler”, no matter where you go around the world;
our trusted night rendition with our signature will be there in its light weight form and full Night Environment  glory,

Don’t be fooled by the use of the words “filler” or “light weight”; Black Marble still carries a serious punch!
Black Marble and Night Environment are designed to work and integrate together seamlessly!

With added vector data Black Marble steps it up further more replicating real world grid and layout; with our new worldwide road network vector data we built,
This allows for real world navigation training at night anywhere in the world; and full data grid replication to match our Full Night Environment flagship regions ,
Night Environment regions are our flagship and as such will always be needed to overcome certain scenarios such as Photoreal based environment etc...

With Black Marble (Marvel) We bring in new technology developed in-house to deliver native Sim night environment integration (Native is key here!!!),
Black Marble integrates real world data as well as native Sim data to render a true night worldwide with unparalleled modularity,
With our new technology we
can seamlessly add to Native Sim existing architecture; recent (March 2016) and up to date vector data!
This means you will have real world road data anywhere on the globe that visually matches our Night Environment full regions almost 1:1,

The ultimate combination! one product renders the whole world to look very much like Night Environment full packed regions,
For those areas where you enhance your environment further with Photoreal and other elements requiring a higher level lighting system with extended textures, accuracy and fidelity,

A trusted full Night Environment region will be there to cover your night properly unobstructed by any other elements,

Did I mention the best part... this is all controlled via NEXM convenient GUI…

I'm curious what all still coming!

how's it going Holgi :)
the list of features and new functions we will bring with Black Marble is long,
we are actually considering to limit some of the new function to avoid overwhelming our end users,

Black Marble is very modular and extremely flexible with literally endless option to draw the night anyway you wish,
some of the new functions and features were still not listed; we will publish these very soon as well,

ill mention this...
you can expect worldwide road network with traffic everywhere!
cars with volumetric lights at night, and much more...

This looks like a great global enhancement to the sim. It will definitely keep me happy until I see more dedicated NE regions.


And oh, keep those screenshots coming!

Hope the settings will allow you to get the streets bathing in a real 'orange' glow. Looking good and a great coverage option as I cant afford all the night environment areas so this will really be a big deal for me.

Black Marble includes in its arsenal a brand new 2016 worldwide road network vector data!
the controls we provide are extremely refined; you will be able to draw the night in anyway you wish,


black marble is like a painters brush,,

you are the painter, Black Marble is your brush, and the night is your canvas,

use Black Marble magic paint on your brush; you can do draw the night to your specific liking,

As a person who lives 15 minutes away from Schiphol, i love the view!

The roadlights match perfectly!

All i know is that everything involved Aerosoft tends to take very long time till we see a product... hope its not going to be in this case.
