Orléans is a prefecture and commune in north-central France, about 120 kilometres (74 miles) southwest of Paris. It is the capital of the Loiret department and of the Centre-Val de Loire region.

Orléans is located on the Loire River where the river curves south towards the Massif Central. In 2017, the city had 116,685 inhabitants within its municipal boundaries. Orléans is the center of Orléans Métropole that has a population of 286,257, the 20th largest in France. The largest metropolitan area has a population of 444,681.

Île d'Orléans in Quebec, Canada is named after Orleans in France as well as Orléans, Ontario and the former French colony New Orleans, Louisiana. (French: La Nouvelle-Orléans)

Orléans is located in the northern bend of the Loire, which crosses from east to west. Orléans belongs to the vallée de la Loire sector between Sully-sur-Loire and Chalonnes-sur-Loire, which was in 2000 inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The capital of Orléanais, 120 kilometres southwest of Paris, is bordered to the north by the Beauce region, more specifically the Orléans Forest (French: forêt d'Orléans) and Orléans-la-Source neighbourhood, and the Sologne region to the south.

Five bridges in the city cross the Loire River: Pont de l'Europe, Pont du Maréchal Joffre (also called Pont Neuf), Pont George-V (also called Pont Royal, carrying the commune tramway), Pont René-Thinat and Pont de Vierzon (rail bridge).

To the north of the Loire (rive droite) is to be found a small hill (102 m (335 ft) at the pont Georges-V, 110 m (360 ft) at the Place du Martroi) which gently rises to 125 m (410 ft) at la Croix Fleury, at the limits of Fleury-les-Aubrais. Conversely, the south (on the rive gauche) has a gentle depression to about 95 m (312 ft) above sea level (at Saint-Marceau) between the Loire and the Loiret, designated a "zone inondable" (flood-risk zone).

At the end of the 1960s, the Orléans-la-Source neighbourhood was created, 12 kilometres (7 mi)to the south of the original commune and separated from it by the Val d'Orléans and the Loiret River (whose source is in the Parc Floral de la Source). This quarter's altitude varies from about 100 to 110 m (330 to 360 ft).

Addon history:

v1.0: initial release

v1.1: fix road traffic on some bridges

v2.0: overall optimization:

This is a major update that optimizes the package, as it drastically reduces the number of texture files:

- less files on the package: 

   before: 16 561 files

   after: 1115 files

- reduced CPU footprint

- reduced loading time at startup

- less CPU load, so it can leads to better perfs depending on the config

- better road traffic integration

Special thks to Spacewolf1 that have measured the loading impact of the number of files in the packages:


v2.1: Fix some texture flickering issues

v3.0: Fix a big issue with the LOD management system, due to the way Google Earth Decoder places and sizes the tiles. Now, there should not be any FPS issues, and framerate should be better and more consistent

v3.1: Add a fix for possible CTD issues ( https://flightsim.to/blog/creators-guide-fix-ctd-issues-on-your-scenery )

v3.2: Change LODs settings


- Add City landmark

- Slighly reduce package size, by removing unused files

v3.4: reduced package size

Remove old orleans folder. Extract thalixte-orleans folder into the Community folder.

      J'ai réparé en renommant mon dossier en Orleans test lol
      Je ne comprends pas mais ça marche alors tant mieux.
      Par contre le pique de la cathédrale avec le croix et décalé, je vois la tour et la croix tout en haut est décalé à coté de la tour "elle vole".
      Pareil chez vous ?

    Merci Thalixte, très belle réalisation et qui tombe à pic (si je puis dire 😉) : je me tâtais pour envisager une création de Gien... Et puis il apparait soudain un(e) passionné(e) qui nous pond Orléans, et avec brio!
    Donc merci aussi pour la motivation, et je vais tenter de suivre les liens que tu as indiqués. Euh... à moins qu'une inspiration subite ne t'inspire?
    A nouveau respect pour le travail!

    Superbe boulot, merci beaucoup. Juste une petite question (toute petite) : la végétation de googleearth n'est pas top, pourra-t-on l’améliorer ou n'existe-t-il pas de solution ? (cela n'enlève rien à la belle qualité de ta réalisation) Merci encore

      Bonjour, et merci. Pour la végétation de Google Earth, je n'ai pas de solution simple pour l'enlever, malheureusement.
