  1. Nice to see a decent rendition of the aircraft museum on the north side, and also Donington Park race track to the west. With respect to the latter.....shouldn't those cars in the pits be facing the other direction?
  2. The detail and crispness in those textures is excellent. I look forward to the P3D version.
  3. It's great to hear that both East Midlands and Edinburgh are in development
  4. If this was not an official announcement, I would have said that it looks too good to be true...
  5. P3D v4 runs pretty good on my very modest PC (i5 4690k @ 4.3Ghz/16GB DDR3-1600 RAM/2GB GeForce GTX 770) under Windows 7 64bit Home Premium Edition. However, I had no idea that 16GB is the maximum amount of RAM that can be addressed by my OS!
  6. I have a modest PC (i5 4690k @ 4.3Ghz/16GB DDR3-1600 RAM/2GB GeForce GTX 770), and I have disabled all of those "3DM" files that contain the data for the generic custom 3D buildings. With these files deactivated, I can run TrueEarth GB South in P3D v4 at "acceptable" framerates over London, and very good framerates everywhere else @ 1920x1080 resolution and 4xSSAA/16xAF settings. This is with Scenery Complexity and Autogen Density @ Extremely Dense, Autogen Distance @ Medium, LOD Radius @ High, Tessellation @ Medium, Mesh Resolution @ 5 metres, Texture Resolution @ 15cm, Water @ Medium, Shadow Detail @ Medium, and Shadows limited to my own plane (cast and receive internal and external). I also have Dynamic Lighting and Reflections disabled, and I also fly with clear skies and calm weather. However, I do also run lots of detailed custom AI planes @ 100% (since there is no point in doing all the work to manually add AI flightplans and models if you are not going to see them in the simulator). This may be too limited for some, but then I do not have the luxury of a super fast i5 9900k powered system with an RTX 2080Ti GPU. In fact, my PC does remarkably well, considering that I only have 2GB VRAM. I can even run the TrueEarth Netherlands/FlyTampa Amsterdam combo at those settings, although framerates do struggle on the ground with all of my detailed AI planes in action. EDIT: For the record, I am running all of this under Windows 7 64bit Home Premium Edition.
  7. I think the big aspect in Deadstick's favour is that it is completely different from the other flight simulators available for the PC. It isn't trying to reinvent the wheel. I really hope that it is successful, because (IMO) the world of flight simulation needs divergence, and Deadstick looks like a promising start.
  8. As far as I am aware, the Channel Islands will be released as separate scenery packages, and are not part of TrueEarth GB South.
  9. TrueEarth GB Central for P3D v4 is top of my list. GB South has raised the bar, and I am now desperate to replace the rest of my old England and Wales photoscenery!
  10. Please note that there is a separate thread on these forums regarding compatibility between FlyTampa Amsterdam Schiphol and ORBx TrueEarth Netherlands. I can confirm that they both work well together when Holger's instructions are followed.
  11. I don't really care how much hard drive space is required. That's the price we need to pay if we want to see superbly detailed realistic landscapes in our flight simulators.
  12. I will definitely be staying for the two days, and I am really looking forward to the extended format!
  13. If you mean Donald Campbell's jet powered boat, that was Coniston Water in England.
