  1. Would I be correct in assuming that whilst I am downloading and installing TE products my P3D will be out of action? Just about to get Washington plus both North and South Cal, wanted to make sure I had a large enough enough window of time, it's more the conversion period for me that seems to take the longest....
  2. Welcome to Helsinki! Helsinki-Vantaa Airport (IATA: HEL, ICAO: EFHK; Finnish: Helsinki-Vantaan lentoasema, Swedish: Helsingfors-Vanda flygplats), or simply Helsinki Airport, is the main international airport of the city of Helsinki, its surrounding metropolitan area, and the Uusimaa region. The airport is located in the neighboring city of Vantaa, about 5 kilometres (3 mi) west of Tikkurila, the administrative center of Vantaa and 9.2 NM (17.0 km; 10.6 mi) north of Helsinki city center. The airport is operated by state-owned Finavia. The airport is by far the busiest in Finla
  3. Another short Alaska excursion in the DC-3, this time a Thunderbird Flight Service ship! A short hop from Homer to Kenai with a short load of whiskey for the local boys and girls! Just in "case" you are interested @flyingleafthere was 'hic', absolutely no spillage 'hic' ! Well, OK, just a little! 'hic'! he said as he licked his lips! Hope you enjoy the ride! 1 Doing those mandatory checklists before taxi! 2 Short taxi to runway 04! 3 Hold short, Canadian Geese on short final! Before take off checklist! 4 No between a
  4. When I try to install the scenery I get an error message "2 files failed to extract click verify files" and I do and get the same error message. Any ideas?
  5. Combining thousands of hours of development over the course of the TrueEarth Series, we reach our destination of Southern California and therefore completing the west coast USA. Our TrueEarth series represents innovative technology combined with relentless hard work to provide a truly realistic representation of the area. Combining satellite imagery, hand-crafted modelling and extensive research, TrueEarth Southern California gives you a unique experience from the comfort of your home. Pilots of all types love flying in the area thanks to the stunning landscapes, incredible waterfr
  6. Not an airfield I visit often, but I took the Majestic Dash-8 Q400 in at dusk. Using the 'Start at 4,000', 10 miles out' approach, I found the engines dead. Did manage to get them fired up, but I was not set up properly & overflew. I was surprised at how well the Q400 glided while I wrestled the engines. TTM (P3D v4.5)
  7. I was surprised to find this...more color depth...nicer visuals...in running in P3D v4.5 rather than in v5.HF2 Could be DX11 and v4.5's shader renderings. So...I guess it will be seen in v4.5 for myself. This is funny! FYI, same HDR settings in both sims...so Apples to Apples in my judgement on my system. I think Orbx used v4.5 to punch out the promo shots....they look close now. v4.5 seen at 5,000 ASL. ...
  8. Welcome to the Swiss Alps. Developed by Andreas Hegi, author of LSPN Triengen Airport, get ready to explore another challenging airport in the Swiss Alps. As a popular ski resort during the winter season, Samedan Airport (LSZS) sees a vast number of general aviation traffic and private corporate jets frequent the beautiful airport. Situated in the heart of the Engadin valley, expect unsettled winds, low-visibility and plenty of turbulence. Even the most experienced of pilots will find landing at the 5,600ft above sea-level airport tough. Samedan Airport features the same level of d
  9. We are pleased to announce the next release on OrbxDirect by Pilot Plus will be EGTB Wycombe Air Park for P3D V4 & 5! Wycombe Air Park sits on the edge of London and is home to a bustling aviation community. Set in the classic British countryside, Wycombe is a popular airfield for general aviation pilots and training helicopter pilots alike. Pilot Plus’ London Wycombe captures the airfield’s atmosphere and unique charm, providing you with the perfect general aviation gateway. Using crisp ground imagery with hand painted ground at 5cm per pixel, with densely packed m
  10. There are some fellows here in the forum playing with post-processing. I thought it might be interesting to do a black and white set of shots. Hope you enjoy it!
  11. Taking off from Alesund Vigra.
  12. One of the advertized purpose of TrueEarth Norcal is [...] You could spend days exploring and still find uniqueness throughout [...]. GOAL ACHIEVED ! I took off from San Carlos and flew randomly just looking out. And the magic of flight simulation happened. I (re)discovered area I flew already but never saw like this.
  13. this maybe a simple question for some to answer ! - but for me to query?? I have seen it offered in Central - and I think once took it up - but I took it off - since I didn't know what I was doing. In central to day - doing the TE Britain patch- I saw a patch for S.O.D.E. and ignored it In the P3D 4 forum today - I saw an instance where S.O.D.E. should be installed to correct an anomaly at an airport In general terms - do I need it and why ??
  14. Today I was able to nail the looks of TE Washington in P3Dv5. Yesterday @BradB warned me about the colors of the trees. Indeed, I needed to disable "Dynamic 3D autogen Vegetation". Thank you very much, Brad! I am super happy with the results, and from this flight I got the perspective of how TE Washington is light-years ahead of PNW (which was already a fantastic add-on). Two things worth noticing: the perfect FPS and the seamless transition between the TE region and the airports - you can't tell where one ends and the other begins. Sorry for posting so many images, but
  15. Hey folks, for me the LOWW Scenery is a total crap! Sorry, but the performance is so bad, no comparsion to any other sceneries. I still have a good PC system (i9, GTX 1080ti, 32GB ram) and no other issues with mid range settings in the graphic options around the world. So LOWW is just not usable, unless you'll fly only cessna's. I tried a lot, no solution regarding the performance issues. Especially on arrival and departure I have only 10 - 15 FPS (just in the APT area). Outside the loww area, no issues, around 60FPS (FSlabs airbus as usual 35 up to 40 fps
  16. Hi Am using True Earth Central with p3dv5. On flying out of RAF Valley, the bridges for the main road and railway across to holyhead are missing textures. I've tried file verify and sync, but it makes no difference. Is there a way to fix this please? Co-ordinates are 53.290022, -4.584096 Thanks
  17. Trying to reinstall LC Africa after reinstall P3D 4.5 Says not fully installed 2? files not loaded - Verify Files have done so 3 times - no luck
  18. In each new flight, I get more impressed with how well Orbx sceneries look in P3D v5. They really shine. P3D V5 breathes new life into sceneries we have been flying (and loving) for a long time.
  19. After a long time installing the new version and some add-ons, my first impressions (after flying for 10 minutes on P3D v5) are: (i) it runs much smoother and with better FPS than v4 (ii) the atmosphere and the clouds are amazing (iii) everything looks better and "feels" more real. I was able to set many sliders to the right, and even then I got more than 60 fps above PNW. I will test it further, with other planes, in other locations, etc. This is my first screenshot with the new sim:
  20. It's indeed a dreamy location.
  21. I keep coming back to LEAS again and again because some sceneries are beyond perfection. This is one of them.
  22. A very nice and pleasant landing at YSCH with a 737 at dusk. "Real" P3D skies (no photo editors creating fake skies here ) Don't get me wrong, but let me say that, as a photographer, I hate those "perfect" Luminar skies, both for real life photography and for flight sim screenshots. But that's me. Maybe many people love this gimmick.
  23. Just seen that P3D v4.5 has also been released with a hotfix 3 at the same time as P3D v5 was released. Has anyone here tried out v4.5 with hotfix 3? Would it work with Orbx Central?
  24. Hi! The frames are much better after the update. But I recognized an decrease of frames at takeoff/landing when reaching the tire wear. The framerate decreases about 5-frames only over that section (at the rest of the airport I've my locked 30 frames). I testet some other airports --> without problems. The problems exists with MJC - Dash or FSL A320. Any idea? Thank you! Greetings, Mark
