  2. Initially I started out nodding my head in agreement with Dominique after reading his post. I was thinking to myself, man just when they scenery gets so good and you're totally immersed, the coverage area ends. But that very thought brought me to Misha and Alex's point. Total immersion and fun!! My family and I visited the PNW from Florida for our summer vacation three years ago. My wife, knowing that I'm the huge Flight Sim enthusiast I am, allowed me to insert Darrington, Concrete, and Snoqualmie Falls( just up the road from Fall City) as stops along the way. I had never visited the

  4. Hi All, Here is a second round of previews for KSTS. It will enter final RTM testing within the next day or two so expect this one very soon In the meantime here are some new shots, including some of the night lighting, as well as a video at the end of some of the animations I have included (selectable in the CP of course). Enjoy! >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_ISdv_47gU Cheers, Misha

  5. On July 14 1865, Edward Whymper and six other climbers reached the summit of Matterhorn for the first time. As a tribute to this first ascent, i took an Air Zermatt helicopter for a short flight around Matterhorn from Zermatt. On this date, we should also think of the more than 500 climbers, that were killed on Matterhorn since the first ascent 150 years ago, which makes the Matterhorn the most dangerous peak in Switzerland.

  7. There is a new trend in airport making, that is to go in ever finer details to render the scenery : interior of the terminal or restaurants for instance. I am amazed by what our favorite designers talent can do ! A lot work goes into it. But, honestly, what I look for in an airport is only what I see from my limited view out of the cockpit (or around the plane in a close external view) and that's it : - What I see on ground and that's why I love all the static/animated stuff OrbX brought us these recent years : passengers, airport crew, animals along the fence, grass, flowers etc. -

  18. That sure is a beautiful place. I wonder if back in its day, the people did landscaping like that. I would think given the tools at hand that it would have been very difficult.

  21. Yesterday I went to PAHO Homer and I must admit how impressive it is looking from outside (Cockpit pilot view) into the terminal waiting room and to even recognize slight moving people . This is a visual improvement and brings life into the scenery even from outside. I´m flying airliners and I would appreciate to have this in other airports too. I can imagine that at night the view from outside through terminal windows could be stunning.... Wulf

  23. Lack of photos never stopped me, as long as you know what it looks like and the color, the rest is just good texture-creation skills, research skills, internet 'savvyness' and creativeness, there are many methods and means to get photos if you think outside the box Newman Airport, WA is a heavily trafficked airport due to the miners flying in and out (430k pax movements in 2013) Try these albums https://www.flickr.com/photos/lelebebbel/sets/72157628140133714 https://www.flickr.com/photos/lelebebbel/sets/72157630168374440 Or "Photos taken at X airport" in facebook https://www.fac

  24. Fantastic set Gerald. What an interesting part of Norway you have found. Definitely somewhere new to explore from Tromso. The link you gave did not work from an iPad, I found it here - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lofoten Cheers. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  25. There are some airports that actually benefit in terms of the immersion by having a modeled interior. I'd say mostly those that serve commercial routes... for example, Santa Rosa. If there one thing an airline pilot notices while waiting for all the people to get on it's the activity behind the glass There are even some real world airports I can mention (not yet made into addon though) that have such small terminal buildings that you can physically see right through them to the parking lot! It's those little "well look at that!" moments that are getting attention lately that really add to

  26. I agree with the original poster.. I recently bought a large Aussie airport from another producer, and although I have a fair system, (my specs on the forum are way out of date by the way) I ended up having to turn many of the fancy bits off, and in fact had to butcher the main scenery folder to avoid massive OOM's. A nice, factual layout of an airport is better that a fancy one that you cannot run.Teecee.

  27. A large part of the details that we add are for our own fun and experimentation, and testing out new things we can do, and we are usually aware that many of those do not help sell the product much. Also you'll notice if you eliminate all those seemingly redundant details, the overall 'look' and ambience of the scenery is not as good. It's all part of the fun, and trust me barely any of it has frame impacts (I just posted up a bunch of shots proving that) http://www.orbxsystems.com/forum/topic/100223-setting-sun-and-night-ops-ksts-sonoma-county-regional-airport-preview-ii/?p=906347 Pers

  30. Yes it makes perfect sense that the countries who spend the most on FS would want products for their home country, even if they have a passion for flying in exotic foreign locations. I think that is an accepted fact in the FS community. When I first purchased a copy of FS the thing I looked for immediately were addons close to where I lived. It's human nature.

  33. Hi everyone, Over the past few months, there have been some hints that there is a new FTX Central in the works. There are a lot of new features that have been added that I think you will all like. Keep in mind that FTX Central is very much in an alpha state at the moment - some features may be removed or changed. Simulator support The new FTX Central has been designed with extensibility in mind. As soon as you start it up, you will be presented with a list of simulators that you currently have installed on your computer (if you only have one sim, it will select it automatically). Upda
