  1. If your interested in Aviation museums there's a couple of incredibly detailed and free 360 degree virtual tours of the Darwin Aviation Museum, NT and also the Perth Aviation Museum, WA in Australia. Take a good look around a B52, Lancaster, Catalina, Dakota C47, Avro Anson, B-25 Mitchell Bomber , Wessex helicopter, COBRA AH-IG and many other aircraft and displays. There's also the B-24 J Liberator 'Milady' Wreck Site in Cox Peninsula, NT that you can explore without the humidity. Very little chance of international visitors stopping by these locations in person this year and perhaps even next year so a bit of support via online visitors will go a long way and you only need to register with your name and email address to access the tours. vuseum.com
  2. Hey.... Townsville is only that green a week after floods or a cyclone. We call it Brownsville here as its super dry for 90% of the year and all bush is brown. Cairns on the other hand probably is that green. Nice shots though.
  3. Thanks for post. Yes I already use the older Noctua NH-D14 on my current build and have been happy with it despite it's crazy size. I purchased the NH-D15 a few months ago when I had some spare cash so it's sat in the box waiting patiently. Also have the following in a box that I purchased. Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming 6G OC Pro Corsair RM850 PSU Need to get CPU Mobo (depends on which CPU chosen) 2 X Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x 16GB) DDR4 3200MHz Memory to make it 64GB 1 X Samsung 860 QVO 2TB 2.5" SATA III (for windows 10 and other software) Seagate ST6000DM004 6TB BarraCuda PRO (for all XP11 scenery) The idea of the 64gb is so that I have them all the same and don't have to worry about trying to match in the future or the damn things are discontinued like my last set. I don't mind if 32gb is sat there doing nothing as it eventually will. Cheers.
  4. Appreciate the reply Doug. In did see your notes about this in the previous post 'pc hardware upgrade?' which then got me reading up even more. To go that route then I just found these on the well known Aussie online store. AMD Ryzen 9 3900X 12 Core Socket AM4 3.8GHz CPU Processor + Wraith Prism Cooler ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming AM4 ATX Motherboard Perhaps a good combination and I could get the rest of my things from the same store also? I guess I already have the Noctua NH-D15 Cooler to use if it's any better than the Wraith Prism Cooler Thanks, Andrew
  5. Hi. I’d like to make a new build within the next 2 months which will be dedicated to VR in general, VR in X-Plane 11 and probably the upcoming MSF 2020 just to give it a spin ;-) Even after reading many reviews / comparisons I’m very undecided about whether to choose AMD Ryzen 9 3900X or the Intel Core i9-9900K as the processer. I already have the following RTX 2060 Power supply Noctua NH-D15 cooler and need to get Mobo (depends on which CPU chosen) 2 X Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB (2x 16GB) DDR4 3200MHz Memory to make it 64GB 1 X Samsung 860 QVO 2TB 2.5" SATA III (for windows 10 and other software) Seagate ST6000DM004 6TB BarraCuda PRO (for all XP11 scenery) Could anyone please offer any advice on the AMD Ryzen 9 3900X or the Intel Core i9-9900K as my brain appears to be truly frizzled at this point and it's all that's slowing down the build. Thanks for your time, Andrew
  6. Hi, If anyone's interested there's 3 Aussie aviation museums up online that you can tour for free. Don't imagine that many people will ever get the chance to visit them in Western Australia with it being so remote this is the next best thing. No VR headset required..... just view the tours on your PC or iPad https://vuseum.com/ Cheers, Andrew
  7. You can buy Google Cardboard / plastic headsets for around $20.00 or less online and is a great intro to immersive VR without having to have a beefed up computer or an expensive VR headset. The resolution is entirely dependent on the phone that you put in them and the Samsung S8 looks excellent. The tour can still be viewed on your regular monitor and you just use your mouse to move the image around instead of your head.
  8. Hi, After a very long break from FSX I jumped into XP11 because of the TrueEarth UK scenery. Always preferred to see the real thing out the aircraft window and now we can as the TE scenery is totally fantastic My background is virtual tours so made up a few views of TE Central for anyone that wants to take a look in this format. You view in a VR headset, Google Cardboard etc. by moving your head around or also on your monitor as you would a regular virtual tour / Google Street view. When using the Oculus browser inside the headset, open the page as you normally would and the 360’s will be shown on the browser window in front of you. You can of course view the tour this way using your hand pointer but to go full VR click on the Enter VR button to be immersed into the scenery and can look around with head movements. To view another scene / location look down towards your feet and the left and right arrows will appear. Look directly at the arrows until the next / previous loads. If you only have a Google Cardboard / plastic headset, open the link and then touch the icon highlighted in green below which will switch it to side by side view. Now you can stick the phone in the headset and take a look around. Please note that I've only checked this tour on the latest Gear VR with a Samsung S8 mobile and also using the phone in those cheap Google Cardboard / plastic headsets. * When in the Oculus App, there's currently an issue viewing full VR mode on the Samsung VR browser but trying to fix that. Here's the link to the small tour and many thanks to Orbx for getting me back into a flightsim again. Some pics have HDR switched on in the XP11 graphic settings and I also have XVision installed but no idea if that's working correctly http://cicadastudio.com/orbx/ Cheers, Andrew
  9. Hey I'm driving up to Cooktown & Port Douglas with my Wife for Christmas / NYE. If we see any Crocs and Cassowaries will upload some pics to add to your excellent aerial tour.
  10. Hi. Any chance of some pics of York please? Also the White Horse as I've been waiting years for this area to look good. Sure it will now https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/White+Horse/@54.224773,-1.2149133,596m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x487ec85b9430cbb5:0x9efe11d19cdc3c68!8m2!3d54.224773!4d-1.2127246 Thanks.
  11. Doesn't matter. Totally different marketing experience out here in the stores plus harder to get the previous years models. Will wait a month for all the new line up to make an appearance and see what's under $2000 for an active big screen or may be dreaming ;-)
  12. Hi, Anyone in Australia can point me to some good sites that sell 3d TV's? I look in the usual JBhifi, Harvey Norm, Dick Smith, Good Guys but there is limited choice for LG tv's. (read up that the Cinema 3D was good) I did find a site called Bing Lee but there wasn't too much choice and good old Kogan is just odd. I guess I've been spoiled for choice after living in North America and would be more than happy to shop online rather than in the stores. Just need to know where to look on this side of the world ) Thanks, Andrew
  13. Hi Teecee, Take a few more shots if you like around York. I don't have P3D installed (have to wait 2 months) so just look out for other peoples screen shots of the area when they become available. Thanks
