  1. Hi Rich I upgraded my computers to W10 few days ago. The upgrade is still free. What you have to do is to download the Media Creation Tool (strange name ! preferably at microsoft.com) and launch it. If you have W7Pro, it will upgrade it to W10Pro. This is what it did for me. I have 3 SSD and 1 HD, no problem. Windows gets activated automatically. Don't see any problem so far with other hardware or software. It took a little time to dowload all the new drivers and I had to help him once but nothing to worry. It takes the best part of half a day. MS won't support 7 anymore soon but also their new sim will work only on 10.
  2. Ah, some drip-feeding at last ! The textures are lovely. That looks certainly promising but difficult to say anything else without the shot coordinates. An example. Looking at Lagos, West of the airport. No comparison with the default scenery which is a shameful joke (rural landscape !). The OLC rendition is accurate in its spirit if I may say so but (for the beta testers ) I don't see the green finger-like axes along rivers (a Vector problem ?) nor the huge rectangular AFB compound . The airport perimeter iself should be green and woody too West and North of the runways. These are details which would be less important in the boondocks but not around an international airport. Now, in the "Give 'em a finger and they will eat your arm" department, if we could get a view of Israel and the Jordan valley, Northern Mali, and the Tiran Straits KSA side ...
  3. Me too. That much green also in the Jebel al Harim peninsula and Bandar Abbas region ? Maybe the cause is the extreme zoom out which blurs everything. Looking forward to see a little closer, the Straits of Tiran KSA side, Jerusalem and the Jordan Valley, Lagos urban sprawl, the red mountain massif in Mali, the red Congo river in the jungle in Kisangani, Zanzibar ...
  4. A quaint use of colors . The first video I ever made, was the same flight with the P-51, a very short but superb flight !
  5. Just a reminder. I initiated this thread when I read a guy from Eagle Dynamics writing on his forum that they had talks with A2A and OrbX. I was amazed to see a very positive response on the two forums to my posts. In DCS, I fly the L-39 which has almost no avionics, is mostly a ground attack aircraft , and cannot go higher than 20k (more or less). So, as many users, I feel that better sceneries would be welcome (I've the Caucasus and the Gulf). Should I add that flying the aircraft is interesting in itself (besides strafing the vilains ) : VFR , IFR landing etc. I don't have specific figures but I intuitively think that DCS may have a much larger user base than AF2 for which OrbX has a line of products. So it didn't seem absurd that ED and OrbX had talks, knowing that talks are... talks.
  6. The young lady admitted that she didn't know something that happened long before she was born and asked the OP (Older Person...) about it. Isn't the way to deal with one's ignorance. Admit and ask. She should be commended not mocked.
  7. My 2560*1440 28" fills my view nicely at about 90cm. My next rig will have a larger screen and resolution I suppose but I find a little strange to see thant the neverending discussions about the best anti-aliasing have not being put to rest with the superb 4k resolution.
  8. This is not deep, there is just a rocknroll song where the expression is used in a way that would be not possible today, I suppose. The feminists would go bersek. Your post reminded me of it. Black Velveteen.
  9. Thank you Rodger, appreciated . Another side hobby to flight simulation that I discovered two years ago. I like RPGs but at the end of a game, that's it ! The game is over. With flight simulation you can do plenty of other stuff, screenshots , videos, repaints, sceneries, and, for the smarter of us (not me...), aircraft. Even if you are not the Leonard of the flight simulation world, it keeps the interest up.
  10. You need to buy a 3rd party mesh (leave your slider at 5 m !) or download one if you find a freeware. The default mesh is not good enough to show the Alps in their splendor. I thought OrbX had a special pack for EU, I may be mistaken . I was thinking of https://orbxdirect.com/product/ftx-global-airport-pack (many of them in Europe have been made by Sylvain Delepierre who made Asiago and Saanen). You can crisscross the Alps with them.
  11. Thank you the MCX tip Scott. I used it in sceneries, never thought of it to avoid the tedious back and forth to the sim. Never too late to learn.
  12. It certainly looks better than what we have now ! I think of two questions : - will the military airfields have the full treatment ? In the past, Orbx was pretty much shying away of doing much for them. - as orthos are so expensive, why not make a LC region in Hawaii as you used to ?
