  1. Yes very familiar with these. In my case and like a lot of folks, its a partial colour blindness, weird to describe, these glasses may help I have never researched it. Partial colour blindness then is more about shades of colours, and only in certain light frequencies, and where colours to one might be obviously different but to my or others they look the same. Fortunately highway roadsigns, traffic lights things like those for me are no issue. But some maps, or colour coded indexed things can be a bear.
  2. Yes this is exactly it...solid, shape deep colours are ok, its those that are shades of this or that. Last year my wife and I were browsing the satellite tv guide in our RV, she was telling me to check the "blue" ones for movies, I said I don't see any blue one's, she said yes right next to the purple one's....too funny I couldn't tell the difference between them, to me they all seemed sort of purple. Its a colour over ride thing that happens.
  3. So, I have partial colour blindness...and have been very frustrated with the new Orbx Central for months. While I might be a minority user in this category, certain shades of red/green combos are a huge problem for me. This shows up in the left side colour choices for what has been bought and owned and installed vs those that are not. I really have to struggle to find which are in each category, I have to stare hardly at the choices and scan my eyes back and forth and then I can perceive the shading variation. Only folks who are colour blind in various ways can possible know how annoying (handicapping) this is. Its kinda like the left handedness vs right handedness of our society. Also being left handed, this gives me a couple strikes for awkwardness; only left handed folks can really tell you how many things in a day are made exclusively for right handed folks while totally ignoring left handed folks. Some may be simple but nevertheless annoying...simple example for those with a Keurig coffee maker, where are the buttons, on the right side, seems simple but awkward. cheers Bryan
  4. Are you talking about P3D+ or XP11+? Have downloaded and tried this freeware version for P3D? https://www.fs2000.org/2018/05/23/fsx-p3d-invercargill-nznv-scenery/ Of course is you mention XP11, I have the entire country in high res ortho with overlays and some 50 freeware airports...my NZ flying experience couldn't be better. cheers.
  5. Wow! Very nice stuff. In my dreams I could sure see this next to my desk. In reality, not for another 2-3 years.
  6. I was thinking exactly this same. I never have a CTD, I use Process Lasso. I paid $2300 for my PC a couple years back...but cripes the new stuff out there you can pay that for a video card...I'm not thinking that this is a "reasonable" hobby for that kind of money. Shortly after I had the PC made up I added another 16 gigs RAM to 32 total. - I7-6700K Processor 8M Cache 4GHZ Base 4.2GHZ Turbo, I overclock - GeForce GTX 970 TwinFrozr V 1140/1279MHZ 4GB 7GHZ GDDR5 - 32 gig G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series F4-2133C15D-16GVR DDR4 2133MHZ As I'm saying for the investment I made, XP11 runs smooth with sliders very high, P3DV4, not so much and I don't want to spend any more time nor money messing around - I want to add something and fly. Although I do enjoy making new ortho tiles with overlays. Best freeware anywhere.
  7. Yea @NeilG I moved to XP11 over two years ago. Rarely use P3DV4. But I do for its float planes, historic stuff my dad flew and a few other reasons. I think Nick is quite right but I have over 900 scenery layers in XP and tons of ortho by Orbx, by others and my own. XP11 runs smoothly =s you state I hate those stutters. Cheers.
  8. In two 1/2 weeks I will be over there, but on a ferry...hopefully we don't end up with our butts high in the air.
  9. Gorgeous stuff....just not enough money to buy all these wonderful sceneries.
  10. Super fantastic! Our sims P3DV4+ and XP11 both need to have full weather engines that provide snow, ice, accumulated rain and such...its seems like its the last missing bit.
  11. Seriously, is this airport actually like this?
  12. Ha, ha, ha....too funny, now that's excitement! Its a nice ortho package for sure. I also have added my own Nevada at high ZL around Tahoe, Reno, Carson City and the rest of the state by Forkboy2...so this gives one seamless flying. The only issue it trying to colour match but that's not a big deal in my view. I was also just in the area flying and we didn't run into each other, . I think also that the ability to fly ortho in XP is the biggest pro side of this sim. I almost fly only ortho. Bryan
  13. Very nice. I intend to visit soon...is there a nice place to buy a good pie and coffee?
