  1. So... I took off from one 7,600' airport, flew for 2 hours and landed at another 7,600' airport. This is going to look gorgeous once it's no longer default LC. From Addis Ababa to Asmara. and I'm at 19k'.... Just over the ridge it drops very quickly to only a couple of hundred feet. Must be a real steep drop, but I never got that far... Sorry... got carried away again...
  2. Another milk run took me from Quito to Panama to Mexico City (that's a long way, just quietly), Acapulco, Guadalajara, Monterrey, Houston and New Orleans. MMMX to KIAH was AeroMexico AM228 in a DC-9 - there and back (AM229) in a 12 hour day in a DC-9. Some randoms from the trip, in no particular order: Mike
  3. Santo Domingo to San Juan Gear up... Picking up the radial Good bye to the Dominican Republic Hello to Puerto Rico Miami to San Juan with the four stops was 7.4 hours logged in the sim. There is a milk run in reverse, but I think I'll park that for now. Much more to explore... Mike
  4. Leaving a grey Jamaica: Haiti ahead: Time to head down: Port Au Prince: Better conditions than Kingston: One more stop before San Juan.
  5. The hop from Montego Bay to Kingston on PA431, Miami to San Juan milk run. Settled en route Probably should have tuned the localiser... 23°C, dew point: 23°C... Next stop Port Au Prince in Haiti.
  6. The milk run to San Juan from Miami in 1961: Crossing Cuba. I wonder what protocol in 1961 was... Into Montego Bay The next hop is across to Kingston.
  7. TNCM to KOFP in a DC-6A. A mere 5 hours... but flying a four engined airliner at 6k' instead of 36k' does kinda make up for it: The Bahamas: So... the forecast wasn't good And so it proved Mike
  8. Some more from my Italian tour: Inbound Naples: Depart Naples shortly after: Cool lighting enroute to Palermo: Now... one really should check topo maps. There is a rather large hill that look like it had the side blasted off to make room for the airport.
  9. Never been to Sardinia in the sim (I don't think). Flew in from Rome. This is Alghero to Cagliari. Straight 'v's. Next leg is back to Rome. Fair to say I'm a bit of a fan of openLC. It opens up a whole lot of the world. Mike
  10. Left Heathrow well before sun up. Descending into an early spring dawn... Mike
  11. Spent some quality time flying through Thailand on my day off today. Having started in Sydney a while ago I have been gradually doing short legs north through Australia/PNG/Indonesia/Singapore/Malaysia and now Thailand. The aim is to go through Asia, the Mid-East and Europe to London. Not sure if I'll keep going after that or start something new. I'm not too sure I'd want to do the leg from Europe to North America, given that I'm flying low'n'slow in fairly short hops, that could be challenging and fairly desolate across the Atlantic I'm guessing! Anyway, I have all of the ORBX global and region products, although I guess in this part of the world it's just Global and Vector that apply. I also have the FS Global 2010 mesh. Sadly no payware airports in the region, so until I get to Europe it will be a bit "vanilla", but I have to say I'm still enjoying the flying and the scenery regardless. I've now gotten as far as Bangkok: And here are a few shots from today's 4 legs which were WMKP (Penang) <--> VTSP (Phuket) VTSP (Phuket) <--> VTSM (Ko Samui) VTSM (Ko Samui) <--> VTBP (Prachuap) VTBP (Prachuap) <--> VTBD (Bangkok) The aircraft is Carenado's Embraer Phenom 100.
  12. Wasn't too busy with the "v" key, so just three shots enroute from the Denver area down to Santa Fe.
  13. Naturally I had to take advantage of the generous sales to buy a few new toys over the holidays. New Sedona addition enjoyed with a nice new complex flyer. Sedona, AZ to Provo, UT with a Grand Canyon crossing. Enjoy!
  14. Caught off guard by some Wx from Baltimore Martin State to Ocean City. Who knew I had radar turned off in Foreflight....Doh! Nothing dropping down to 1500AGL couldn't remedy.
  15. Hi, I am looking to purchase and I have a few questions which are not answered on the sales site (as far as I can see) 1) Do I need FTX Global BASE for EU England etc... ? 2) Do I need FTX Global HD Trees for EU England or are the trees already replaced by the EU England scenery? 3) Do I need FTX Global Vector for EU England or is the vector info included in the EU England scenery? I suppose the underlying question is, do I need anything other than EU England, to achieve the screenshots displayed on EU Englands sales page? Thank you in advance for your help.
  16. Found some time for flying and made a trip from Innsbruck to Saanen Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  17. From Lamezia Terme to Naples.
  18. I've just got it and I can't believe how OLC EU dramatically improved the landscape. A pleasure to look at. Happy new year to all my friends at Orbx!
  19. Purchase Orbx FTX Global for an early Christmas Present on special and I love it
  20. Hello everyone, I am planning to finally "go Global" and I have a question about the Open Land Class (OLC) products and Global Airports. If I understand it correctly, to install a Global airport I need to have both Global Base and Global Vector installed. Do I also need to install the relevant OLC or do the Global airports come with their own landclass?
  21. New Zealand near NZTG PNW near Vancouver Maule approaching YWOL in AU Cessna at YWOL Baron over Global NE USA Sierra between Canberra and YWOL one of my favorites in this group of shots and excuse the blurries - my system was being cantankerous (sp?) thanks for looking.
  22. Hello community, I recently bought FTX Global Base pack and was really happy about the improvement of ground textures, but I have some trouble with the displayed FTX Global Textures. Other than I have read in the internet and at two of my sim collegues, ORBX seems to not replace the default ground textures, but only loads around the aircraft. It can clearly be seen when the top-camera is selected and you zoom out and also in the distance when flying above FL200. It happened in a clear install in FSX and also in Prepar3D v3.4, which was also a new, clear install. It has been installed as admin and the P3D settings now are average to high. Higher settings in displaying objects and textures in distance expand the "circle" of texture arround me. Does anyone have a clue, what is causing my issue and how the textures can be fully replaced?

  23. Here's a variety of recent shots. nothing special really. thanks for looking.
  24. P3D3.4 looks fine to me...excellent actually. the water seems better and the cliff faces seem better. the lighting is different somehow and works great with a sky Ive been working on. I cant tell you anything about OOMs or VAS because I don't think I really had trouble there very often. All I know is that it looks good to me. and its got some cool features like the 3D Navaid display and ability to take a jpeg screenshot (which must be renamed apparently to be useable)
