    Hi all, The past month has been pretty rough, hope everyone is staying safe! Since we're all cooped up indoors and playing flight sims, I thought I'd take some time to finish up the Californian Channel Islands that never made it into the first version of Santa Barbara, so that you all have somewhere new to explore This update adds over 700 square kilometers of new coverage to KSBA, more than doubling the original coverage area. It also adds 3 lite airstrips for you to land at. These airstrips are super fun and challenging to fly into, and are a nice short flight away from KSBA. Alternatively, you can load your flight at CA97 Cristy Airstrip, but the other two, you'll have to go and find them! This will be released in the next couple of days. For all that have purchased KSBA already, hope this gives you something new and interesting to explore! For those that haven't, KSBA is still on discount until the 12th April, so make sure you don't miss out and pick up a copy here: orbxdirect.com/product/ksba The update will be free for all customers, so as long as you have the product you'll be able to get it COVERAGE MAP SCREENSHOTS Cheers, Misha

    Continuing the Tasmanian Tour (I fear the famous road tour https://targa.com.au/targa-tasmania-competition/ will not take place this season) we depart from Strahan... ... along the B24... ... up to the environmental disaster around Queenstown. Then we follow the A10 along the wilderness mountains, ... ... and pass a lake that is named "Laughing Jack Lagoon". Who has given it this name and why? However, at Tarraleah Falls we can simply fly over the meandering road... ... until we come to the lowland plains near Ouse. A little detour brings us to Mt. Field NP with the famous Russell Falls, ... ... before we continue to follow River Derwent along the Paper Mill at New Norfolk. Some sights added by @teecee: Bridgewater bridge, ... ... and Hobart harbour at Sullivan´s Cove. Nice views of Hobart during the approach. And here we are!

    Ok, so again for #StayAtHome situation. New Pack for You - screenies, story and... skin, so 3xS. Let's start: This is next idea for Orbx Africa Landclass. Its a recreation of 2016 Vintage Air Rally "Crete2Cape" - what it was in 2016. Here it's the map for this trip: So I did the new repaint for A2A Piper Cub (P3Dv4.4+ version) of G-KURK - Piper's Maurice Kirk who took up the challenge in 2016 - Vintage Air Rally over Africa (didn't finish it), maybe help him to finish this race virtally ! This is repaint of his L-4 "Grasshopper" version of Piper "Cub". Real repaint was inspiration for this skin outside and inside so its a big project for this small plane (new textures, bump mapping, PBR effects). The preview: The plane "Liberty Girl II" is used by Maurice Kirk. He traveled on this G-KURK on many places on the World. If You need more info about this eccentric pilot, his Cub and this skin check this topic on A2A Forum: https://a2asimulations.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=70067 Few days ago I started this Air African Rally. Now after me its 10,5h of real time of flying, real wether, few landings, compass only and few saved flight on airports. Now Im near to end of border of Egipt. The journey continues ... Below are some photos from a trip over Africa (with new LC for sure) and Mr.Kirk G-KURK plane: Skin was uploaded Today on SOH Forum, soon on Avsim and Flightsim. Stay safe!

    Not too much to say about the locations on this flight. Unfortunately with some autumn rain. The telescopes of the University of Tasmania were added by TeeCee. I like this light, ... ... but I do not like this weather. Flying down the River Derwent we see the Cadbury chocolat factory, ... ... some industrial complexes, ... ... and finally the harbour. Again, pimped by Terry to my greatest pleasure. Tasman Bridge in its glory. And I can even find the runway!

    Thank you Orbx for the unexpected update of Santa Barbara. In these horrible moments (here in Europe/France), it's like opening a window and get fresh air to change our mind. Thank you again, Orbx and Misha ! I'm use to stay at Atlantic FBO at Santa Barbara. AI trafics are Ultimate Trafic Live. The taxi clearance is drawn on the ground chart. Thanks for Foreflight on iPad. Great training tool to have the iPad connected to Prepar3D. I waited at 25R Golf holding point. Looking at a Beech landing. Hey ATC ! There were plenty of room to make me depart before he lands ! Quick navigation made with Foreflight connected to Prepar3D. Overflying CA97. Hum... What's the plan to land there ? And Flight1 GTN 650 is yelling in my headset ! Terrain ! Terrain ! A good training to find in the GTN where to remove alerts ! DIY approach. Very good exercice to master speed, throttle and pitch... There were a guy but he wasn't funny Overflying East Santa Cruz Island airstrip to figure out how to land on this one Short final. Oh ! There's something like a slope runway there! Before flying back to Santa Barbara, I played with clouds Clouds from Toga EnvTEX (Or REX Texture Direct ?) and the real weather is recreated by Active Sky A2A C172 with the replica livery of Bad Pirate N734NK from San Diego, CA.

    This advice was sent to me via EMail and I think we should practice a little inner-peace... Subject: Find calm Heard a Dr. on TV saying in this time of Coronavirus staying at home we should focus on inner peace. To achieve this we should always finish things we start and we all could use more calm in our lives. I looked through my house to find things i'd started and hadn't finished, so I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of Chardonnay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of wum, tha mainder of Valiumun srciptuns, an a box a chocletz. Yu haf no idr how feckin fablus I feel rite now. Sned this to all who need inner piss. An telum u luvum. And two hash yer wands, stafe day avrybobby!!!

    I had fun without having too much fun trying to climb the summit of Kilimanjaro. Rendered at an altitu of almost 20,000 feet, the biplane hardly went up any more so I returned. I recommend everyone who owns this FSX scene to take a look at it.

    Time to start this autumns Tasmania tour, and, like most times from Launceston. Did I ever mention this airport look is as outdated as chinese sceneries would be, because the buildings and streets were complete overhauled during the last 10 years? A short view over the fields of Sharman´s Wines... ... and the golf course of the Country Club Casino. The buildings should be northwest of the little lake. Following the NH1 we find ourselves near Carrick. Some VIPs here know this village well, am I right, @teecee ? Next famous landmark for some of us is the TasAlk facility near Westbury, ... ... followed slightly later by the camouflaged airstrip at Deloraine. Meandering roads and rivers along the Alumn Cliffs, where we head left... ... to meet, under the right wheel, Trowunna Wildlife Sanctuary http://trowunna.com.au/ , taking care for a huge number of Wombats and Tasmanian Devils. Here we climb over the shoulder of Mount Roland, ... ... with Claude Road airport situated at its north. Lake Barrington, ... .. and the nearby Cethana Dam guide the way to... ... the Cradle Mountain airstrip. Time to look for a tent or hut to sleep...

    Well, I confess, I succumbed and tried an updated XPlane 11.50b2 Vulkan Totally different sim now with so many things fixed from the first beta. Yes, I've done a few changes , because I'm not evaluating the beta for bugs, and because it is a beta, I expect they will be different with b3, so its irrelevant , but the one thing that stands out for me is something I never expected to see. I have scenery objects set to Maximum and my fps is locked at 30 in NVCP in adaptive vsync at 1/2 monitor refresh rate and you will notice (first time I've left the fps counter on in a screenshot) that the frame rate is constant in the British countryside and the same coming out of EGLC & flying over central London. Just silky smooth Oh and as an added little bonus, they've significantly improved both reflections and the water rendering Cheers Renault Sorry Ian - I apologize, There is no Orbx scenery visible here in the following 2 screenshots, but I just wanted to show the internal shadow quality that can be obtained now
