    Thanks Ziggy, The PR for CAE3 does not include CYBL so unless Don's version extends well beyond the airport itself there should be no problem. There will however be a problem at Cape Mudge if you use a PNW lighthouse package that places a lighthouse there. The same problem will occur at the Merry Island lighthouse that is part of CAG8. I'll try to describe the solution in the compatibility forum when the time comes. Oh, yes, the time and effort: a year for this one.

    Just testing the new UWXP 2.5 update which was released today. Using mostly default settings, with water, skies and cloud colours set to auto, default XP11 weather and X Vision. Cheers,

    CAE3 Campbell River Water Aerodrome is coming to Prepar3D v3 & v4! So... you have been to CAC8, CAX6, CAG8 and YRC; where to next? How about Campbell River Water Aerodrome and the city of Campbell River BC? CAE3 Campbell River Water Aerodrome was said to be the busiest seaplane base in the world during the 1970’s. It’s not so busy now but instead has the character that no polished facility can match. No PA system with that well modulated voice you can’t understand. A look at the odds and ends on the seaplane docks tells you that it’s a working SPB. CAE3 is located on Tyee Spit at the mouth of Campbell River just north of the centre of the city by the same name. It is the home of Corilair, Grizzly Helicopters,Vancouver Island Air and West Coast Helicopters . Campbell River, the “Salmon Fishing Capital of the World” and in particular Tyee Spit are famous for the salmon fishing. At Tyee Pool the fishing is done from rowboats which you will find modeled in the scenery. The city of Campbell River lies at the junction of the more populated southern part of Vancouver Island and the mostly undeveloped northern half. It has the feeling of a little bit of both. Key Features All of Tyee Spit as a large model, including Corilair, Grizzly Helicopters, Vancouver Island Air, West Coast Helicopters, associated docks and other buildings. The city of Campbell River North Campbell River Nystar buildings and dock with detailed static ship Ocean Wind John Hart Generating Station Five Campbell River marinas with custom boats Campbell River ferry terminal Quathiaski Cove ferry terminal Cape Mudge Lighthouse and grounds April Point Marina and Spa, with helipad The AI cruise ship Norwegian Jewel going from the Campbell River Cruise Ship Terminal to Victoria BC and back.

    Due to my troubles ocurred during the switch to Win10 I did not fly & post as much as usual during the last two months. But I am getting back, slowly. Today you see me leaving for a short Easter holiaday, picking a safe Boeing at Hanover... ... climbing over the Wesergebirge... ... and reaching FL350 over the Rhein. Northern France is mostly cloudy, ... ... but at least we can spot Biarritz over the south, to the right. Hours later. Leaving the west coast of Africa behind... ... for a short hop over the Atlantic. Sandy Fuerteventura. Approching Gran Canaria from the south (as usual). You can see the global landclass is nothing but a disaster.

    Continuing the "let's tweak the hell out of any sim" story, I decided to take JV's advice and install the FlyWithLUA suite - and the excellent VMI Twick VR script (all freeware). I'm a great PTA/P3D fan, so I'm also using Yuri's xVision (payware). There's a lot of overlap between the two, so it's not easy to arrive at a "definitive" tweak. TEGB Lake District: Over to ORBX YBRM for XP: For anyone that uses xVision, my preset is here: Adam XV 121_01 Adam.

    A little flight out from Orbx Shoreham (Brighton) airport, whizzing over Lancing, where my grandmother lived and we spent many a family holiday, and then turning towards Brighton and the South Downs. Amazing detail... you can read the text on the memorial plaque. This looks like a nice spot to watch the coming and going... My gran had a house almost at the end of the runway, before moving closer to the sea, which was also great for plane watching. Setting off in my freeware Grob (great name ) ..... Some lovely detail on display at this airport. Lancing... The flats below the right wheel is where she moved too... it was great, with a hop just over the road to the beach, and a huge pleasure park (Brooklands) just down the road. The old docks at Shoreham and the exit of the River Adur. Brighton with its sole remaining pier, with the west pier (which was already abandoned and in decay) burning down in in 2003... You can see the remains accurately modeled in True Earth, just above right/center... You can also see the British Airways i360, which is a 162-metre observation tower a little further right, on the beach. Heading out over the Downs, now a National Park A27 from Brighton to Lewes. For these last two shots I turned on XEnviro, for some real time weather... nice, if blustery conditions; and the clouds look very nice. This is v1.07 with HD replacement textures. Thanks for looking.

    Home... Devon for me, although we are very close to the Somerset border, so a lot of the places we spend time are there too. Not long after take-off from Dunkeswell, heading north over Culmstock Beacon. Over my house, which is bottom left... Nice to see Orbx has given my studio a nice new blue roof... it could do with it Haddon Hill a few mins from home on Exmoor... a high spot and favorite place for us to go and blow away the cobwebs. Leaving Haddon to head deeper into Exmoor. Over Dunkery Hill, which is the highest point on the moor at just over 1700 feet. Minehead town can be seen to the top The distinctive patchwork quilt of Devon & Somerset's fields. Porlock and the Bristol Channel, with Wales just visible through the haze.... And a staggering amount of trees on display in the deep coombes. Heading towards Lynton & Lynmouth... Lynmouth suffered a devastating flood on 16 August 1952 when a huge storm overwhelmed the River, killing 34 people. A quick flick back around to see the spectacular Forland Point. The drive between Porlock & Lynmouth is stunning!. Heading back south over the bleached moorland. All pics taken with True Earth: South in XP11.33 B1... also using XVision 1.2.1 with my own preset. Thank you for looking.

    Thanks Jack, I deleted the old folder completely, downloaded the new version, copy / paste and then started the sim....look for UWXP in the top toolbar, fill out email and order number, they ping back new serial, paste that and away you go....there are so many things on this I feel getting it right is going to take awhile...

    Looks very good Wayne! Lemme ask you something, I'm fixin' to update my UWXP, how do I upgrade it? Do I delete the folder it runs in and create a new one?

    It's funny, I thought the sky and clouds looked great while I was flying, and even looking at the screenshots now, they still don't look bad to me, although I do of course see a bluish hue, with a dash of purple, through the clouds and atmosphere, which I don't mind. I have my PTA set up (in P3D) to be quite blue through the atmosphere in the distance because to me that seems realistic and on certain days there is quite a bluish hue in the real atmosphere, and it gets more blue the further you are looking through the atmosphere. That being said, I looked at this thread on my phone earlier today, and boy did those clouds look purple! I suppose there is a different colour profile on my monitor compared to my phone.

    Thank you Larry! The time you’ve put into these sceneries is so so very much appreciated! ORBX PNW and Your Freeware Sceneries Together with RTMM, Vic + and the spots that Don G. (Stuff4FS) has done, make the Vancouver Island area by far the best place to fly in P3D V4! Really can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done. Cheers!

    Yes Jack, it is the just released Carenado. Basically very good but with very incomplete FMS modelling. No VNAV and some other features, nor the ability to import a flightplan. You need to remember your 3x descent rule!!!

    Thanks a lot Adam, PNW is always wonderful to fly! Thank you very much Iain! And thank you very much Mikee! Thanks a lot lauriebe! Thank you Jack, there are always some people in real life who don't understand, that flight simulation is the most important thing in the world! Hope you will get your painting done.

    Nice John. It's all about knowing what you're doing. Generally, if someone installs software, and that software works the way it should work for most others who also installed the same software, it's an important sign something is not going well with that someone's system. It's what I think.
