  1. A short flight from the small airport of FAFK - Fisantkraal to Cape Town.
  2. Hi everyone, Thank you all for the wonderful feedback on our first previews of Gothenburg Landvetter - whilst the team are testing the scenery, I thought I would show off a few new features we didn't mention last week. First up I wanted to show off some of the different weather & season effects. As anyone who's ever been to Gothenburg knows, rain is the default weather (sorry folks but it's true!). So I've spent quite a lot of effort trying to create the perfect rainy ambient feeling. Winter has not been forgotten either, and we are talking both the beautiful white christmas type, and the more muddy type where the snow is almost melting away in the december rain. With different environment effects depending on weather type, arriving to Gothenburg on a rainy december day when the snow is almost melting away or a sunny ice cold January day now will bring you a very different experience. We'll just let the screenshots speak for themselves. With that said, let's wrap this up by saying: We are getting quite close - keep an eye out this week for more updates!
  3. Hi all, we are pleased to announce EGNT Newcastle has been released for P3Dv4+! Designed to blend with TrueEarth Great Britain Central (with summer season only) or EU England with all "5" seasons, Newcastle is a great addition to the UK set of airports. The airport features: Detailed and stunning PBR rendition of Newcastle International Airport Ultra-high quality texture work throughout Stunning 3D modelling 30cm per pixel photoreal with seasons Great challenging runway for heavy jets Highly detailed PBR Ground Service Equipment SODE animated jetways & VGDS support $34.95 AUD US$24.26 | €21,58 | £19.43 USD, EUR, GBP estimates only
  4. Via the latest added goodie of ferries, terminals and other shipping to the PNW area, life is even come more to realisme. Thanks to 'Larry_R' upgraded scenery project, flying is become more interactive with these nautical extra features. My first flight in a Goose-flyboat is over Nanaimo - CAC8 and a sea-landing nearby a large freighter:
  5. Hi all. Just built a new PC and installed everything from new, I went to fly from EGHF "Lee On Solent", the runway is not displayed correctly Fig 1. I have run Vector Auto Elevation and configured Global Base etc according to the guidelines. Also installed is FTX England and nearby EGHI Southampton airport. (sorry not having flown from here before I cannot say if it was like this before the new build.) Fig 3 is the same in Orbx TE Great Britain South. However all displays correctly in P3D v 5.0 as seen in Fig 2. I have 2 libraries one for each version of P3D. FIG 1 : - P3D V 4.5 FIG 2 : - P3D v 5.0 Fig 3 : - P3D v 4.5 Orbx TE Great Britain South
  6. With P3dV4 we get further away from FSX. Yet when looking at the FTX product map there is a glaring hole left by the absence of Tongass Fjords X from which Orbx NA regions emanated. I haven't seen anyplace where Holger Sandmann or Bill Womack talk about updating the product. Does this region have any future at Orbx? I doubt that HS & BW are selling too many new copies these days that it would impact their income.
  7. Hi Guys, Had a notification tonight that there are 6 updates available for my Orbx series on P3Dv4.5 Clicked on "install" (as per usual....and as usually works fine!) Strange message comes up..... "RED BOX = Error" "A communication error occurred when trying to perform this action" Never had this one before.... I'm on a (very) recent new machine....Overclocked i9, with GeforceRTX 2070Super graphics. What have I touched?????? What SHOULD I have touched??? Help/Advice will be much appreciated Barry Macrae
  8. A few from the Channel Islands of California. 1. 2. 3. 4.
  9. Flying over Scharmutzelsee in the Brandenburg state of Germany.
  10. Found a needle in a haystack: Flying over the city of Meißen in Germany (near EDDC Dresden) with Germany North and Germany South active I found a small patch of morphing night textures. First, I followed the usual steps by Nick and Holger (i.e., a new lclookup.bgl, a new terrain.cfg) but I could not get rid off the bug. So, I reinstalled GES and GEN but the night textures remained. After fighting with this issue in P3Dv4 I tried to replicate it in v5 and could find the exact same error. Having still a fairly vanilla v5 with only Global, OLC and GEN/GES running (with OLC border blending unchecked) I would now conclude that this is indeed a scenery error. I would appreciate if somebody from Orbx could please check this. Interestingly enough could I not find any similar error. But as this happens in Meißen it can probably happen at other locations too. Thanks, Christoph (The screenshot is from v5 but it does look similar in v4).
  11. A few departing from Calgary on an early morning flight to Vancouver. 1. 2. 3. 4.
  12. Hello. Central Log: Attached YES Operating system: Windows 10 Pro 1909 (Build 18363.815) Simulator: Prepar3D v4.5.14.34698 - Prepar3D v5.0.24.34874 Screenshot: Issue: I have a clean ground up install of Windows with two versions of Prepar3d, When I try to configure Global Base I am only presented with P3Dv4 configuration GUI as see in the screenshot.

  13. Hello all, I think it is a good idea to put all the feedback for RealEarth Netherlands in 1 topic. In this way it is easy for the developers to see what needs to be adjusted - One post per issue - No replies to keep the topic clean
  14. This one defected from Italy to NZ (seen here at NZAR - Orbx/NZNI): The G91 is a Covid-19 gift from Sim Skunk Works. Adam.
  15. Anyone that hasn't got this absolute gem on an aircraft ... here's what you've been missing (over NZ): Still one of my favourite pieces of Orbx texturing - near NZAA: Subtle hint: now freeware. Adam. EDIT: I had a hard time deciding which of these two variations to post, so .. here's the other one anyway!
  16. Some leftovers looking for a home: PMDG DC-6 somewhere over the UK (TEGB/P3Dv4): I'm going to sneak this one in ... A2A P-40 at NZAR (Orbx default NZNI): One of Jan Kees Blom's brilliant repaints for the freeware Corsair. Not sure how it got to NZ though! Adam.
  17. Grabbed the Handley Page Halifax/Halton in the "Stay at Home" sale. Here's the Halton near Chichester/Goodwood: Here's the WWII version! Adam.
  18. I am delighted to introduce Scandinavian Mountains Airport, the world's newest international airport! Kicking straight on from the groundbreaking Gothenburg Landvetter, acclaimed developer Marcus Nyberg brings us the latest in his Swedish series. Working in close consultation with (and appreciated support of) the airport's real-world owners, this project started work prior to the grand opening of the airfield on December 22nd last year. Combined with Marcus' ground-breaking snow technology, ESKS also brings to the simulator a true first - incredible 3cm drone-sourced aerial imagery. This stunning tech works around the 7cm ground limitation (without tweaking the core sim or cfg files) to bring to life one of the most immersive airports you will experience in Prepar3D. Scandinavian Mountains Airport is a brand-new, purpose-designed Swedish airport, located close to the Norwegian border. The airfield was constructed to primarily service the major ski resorts located nearby. Designed to handle aircraft up to B747 in size, ESKS hosts scheduled A320, RJ100 and ATR72 services to both Swedish and European destinations, including Gothenburg, Heathrow and Copenhagen. Whilst primarily a winter holiday destination, the airfield is expected to handle year-round traffic, including corporate and GA flights alongside RPT services. SMA is a trailblazer in another important aspect; it has the first purpose-built remote virtual control tower (RVT), meaning that ATC staff are based in Sundsvall, rather than the airport itself. The airport is also ideally placed for short-haul flights to many of your favourite Orbx airports, including Stockholm, Gothenburg, Kiruna, Visby and Dala. As to be expected from Marcus, the airport package includes all the latest technology; 4k mixed-material and PBR texturing, a sublime dynamic ground poly, advanced rendering techniques, internal modelling, beautiful hand-drawn night lighting, custom static aircraft and GSE. Of course, the icing on the cake is the stunning snow technology that builds upon what you have seen at Kiruna and Gothenburg - this truly is the best winter experience you will have in a simulator! An airport built to exacting standards, ESKS combines the latest P3Dv4 tech alongside best-practice optimization to ensure the perfect balance between stunning visuals and excellent performance. FEATURES Incredible drone-sourced 3cm aerial imagery around the airport, including advanced normal/spec maps beyond the normal GP The world's newest international airport, with flights to major Swedish and European destinations including Heathrow and Copenhagen Immaculately detailed multi-seasonal depiction of ESKS Scandinavian Mountains Airport Stunningly realistic depiction of unique snow during the winter months Interior modelling Advanced materials, including PBR Colour-corrected coverage area at 7cm & 50cm resolution, with hand-placed autogen Custom static aircraft & GSE unique to ESKS Weather-influenced ground textures Stunning night light lighting A short flight to our other Swedish destinations, Gothenburg, Stockholm Arlanda, Kiruna, Visby and Dala The perfect short-haul destination for A320/NGX, regional jet and GA flyers alike! Designed for P3Dv4 to blend seamlessly with Orbx Norway, Orbx Global Base and openLC Europe Painstakingly optimized for very high performance, even with high-end aircraft. The latest in our Swedish Series from acclaimed developer Marcus Nyberg Please stay tuned for more previews and details over the coming weeks!
  19. New repaint for the ND EC135...heading out for the mornings patrol plus a shot from yesterday evening...
  20. God dag! I figured it was time for a second round of previews for my upcoming ESKS Scandinavian Mountains Airport, and to share a little bit of a background story about how we took on this project. But before I do, I would like to thank you all for the great feedback from our first announcement last week. Work is progressing very well, and we are entering the final stages of development shortly. Every year when I grew up (which is close to ESSD Dala Airport), we went to my family's winter cabin in Gördalen, roughly 80 km from Sälen. Depending on my dad's mood, we took the route via Älvdalen, or we took the one via Sälen. If we went via Sälen we had to go into Norway and then back into Sweden to come to our cabin. The road markings switch to yellow and the roads become worse (as my dad used to joke), but aside from that you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Scandinavian Mountains Airport didn't exist when I was a kid. As a matter of fact, it didn't exist until just a few days prior to Christmas last year. But I know the area well, located just a brief drive from Sälen, but also conveniently enough from Trysil, over the border in Norway. Hence the name - an airport covering two of the biggest ski-resorts in two countries. When I heard about that the airport would actually take off, it seemed like a very obvious project to take on. We were lucky to get some great help from the airport management, who simply said "that sounds cool", when we explained what we intended to do. Pierre Engblom (who made the autogen placements you see in this scenery) and I took a day trip out there in October and got all the reference material we needed. A unique issue with a completely new airport is that up-to-date satellite imagery is almost impossible to acquire. So after a great deal of deliberation on how best to proceed, we had a conversation with the airport management, to see if they had any leads; "Sure, we've got the whole airport shot with a drone in 3cm/resolution, you can use that if you like". The result? Welcome to the first Orbx airport with 3cm/px aerial imagery! A special feature of the 3cm ground imagery is the added advanced materials that come with it - you can watch the soil and grass realistically morph as the lighting conditions change. Combined with the snow and rain variations, this creates a far more dynamic environment compared to traditional flat orthoimagery. Be sure to keep an eye out for more information and previews coming out both here and on our Facebook page over the coming week. Mycket nöje!
  21. Departed a desolate EGHI - removed the AI traffic file for flybe and there was very little activity left. Best wishes to all staff and hoping for speedy recruitment into positions at other airlines.
  22. I'd forgotten how much detail there is around Melbourne. I was checking something out at Essendon (YMEN) so decided to do a bit of stooging around: P3Dv4.5, ORBX AU v2 and TomatoShade (not that you would notice). Normal service (back to the green stuff) will be resumed A.S.A.P. Adam.
