    Shalom and greetings all my pals, Presenting a nice typical Ansett airline operated TNT 707 cargo flight from YMML Melbourne Airport which is Australia's second busiest airport located 14 miles northwest of the city centre of Melbourne to YMLT Launceston located in the rural area of Western Junction nine miles from Launceston's city centre in Tasmania. Loading cargo goods on a rainy day There are lots of cargo bins to be loaded!! Tsk tsk tsk bad weather!! HEY you forgot one more cargo bin over there!!

    If you've not seen today's 'insider'update, here's a screen shot which shows the complexity of the buildings generated in MS 2020, and the interaction with the weather very well.

    I remember in a 2018 road map I believe it was-There were mentions of some Alaskan airports in the makings one of which was barrow. and 2 others. What ever happened to these? are they still in progress/planned to be released? I am a big Alaska/PNW/PFJ fan and would love to see more Alaskan airports. Thanks

    Thanks a lot! Yes, you are right, I have to clean the windshield but the entire plane is a bit dirty anyway... Thank you Jack, they have to polish every screw, takes some time....and they need a special version for every license. Glad you like it Adam! Thank you very much Iain! And thank you Mike!

    Hi, i7 2600K is a good chip, 16GB or Ram is all you need for Flight Sims or other games, my old Pc my son has now, is a i7 2600K GTX560 DDR3 16GB Ram, runs like a beast still, so a 1050Ti will be fine. And the guys are right about leaving FSX installed, personally, I still do FSX Missions, am still a big fan of the old girl, great sim.

    Filou, reminds me of the song I'm just breezin' along with the breeze,Trailing the rails, I'm a roamin' the seas.Like the birdies that sing in the trees,Pleasin' to live, livin' to please.The sky is the only roof I have over my head,And when I'm weary, mother nature makes me a bed.I'm just goin' along as I please, Breezin' along with the breeze. Thanks!

    Jack: I guess Martyn explained that if you come from Downunder we have to make the most of our airfares, hence their odyssey still to come. You softies think long-haul means crossing the North Atlantic! I have just looked up, finally you have the right to sigh, 25GA. I didn't realise just how close to KATL you are, and also close to a place called Campbell Town, a name that would make my McDonald grandfather turn in his grave! We of Scots descent hate hard and long. Of course I have known many Campbells and they were nice people, but I assume that is because of the civilising affect of colonial living!

    I think everyone and everything is taken into account. The fact is you don't need to purchase the latest software from Orbx to enjoy flightsimming, particularly in Australia. With OZx and AUV2 and any airports you may have already purchased, there are thousands of flights and circuits you can undertake across the length and breadth of the country. You can also get freeware scenery covering large areas of the globe if you need to go further afield. Purchasing an Orbx scenery is purely a lifestyle choice. It's a luxury yes, but it can never be called a necessity. And just about every airport such as YBCG and Gold Coast Cityscene can be run on an i5 with a GTX970 or better, you just have to configure the options in the scenery and the sim to suit your rig.

    Thanks! This is still the very best scenery for x-plane I think! I've spent hours flying there, and since it's out, I guess I've almost stopped flying somewhere else because this new standard was so high that there was simply no other scenery that can offer the same level of details on this scale. The only thing that I feel could be better is the decays on the ground, I've removed them for this flight, because after reaching 2000 ft, it makes a very obvious pattern on the scenery. Hopefully, it's easy to fix. Best! M

    Sorry about the geography folks, nothing like ONDs moody lights, and Jack's humorous sequences I know. But I just love following progress by reference to other maps and the like. In the first shot the bridge in the centreleft comes over from Annapolis if that helps orientation.

    PORTLAND WEATHER. Yes, the clouds can be dark purple on the underside. That means run for your life because it's about to rain really hard. If they are dark grey, that means stroll toward shelter because it will soon rain steadily. If they are light grey, it means do your errands now because it will rain drearily later in the day for the rest of the day. If there are no clouds, it means carry your coat and be ready for it to rain as soon as the clouds gather again. (I grew up in Battle Ground, just across the Columbia on the Washington side.)
