  1. A lovely city photographed at the golden hour
  2. IMHO, P3D is still a beast of a sim, including in the eye-candy department. I am always impressed with its level of realism and immersion.
  3. Gentlemen (and Ladies?), Speedbird 11 from Heathrow to Singapore is pushing back! Taxiing to runway 27L. Hello Concorde. Such a cute little plane. Lineup... On cruise level, we see some beautiful clouds over south-eastern England. It's already evening... ...as we cross the North Sea... ...only to find some seriously bad weather over Amsterdam! The Dutch must have summoned the bad weather because their airline celebrates its 100th birthday and they want all the attention for themselves! Anyways, a nice scary extra for our paying customers. My theory over the cause of the bad weather is further supported as the weather shifts to a very cozy summer evening as soon as we cross the border into Germany. Han(n)over. Origin of many British Monarchs and said to be the most dull town in Germany. I have never been there, though, so I might just as well be wrong! Sure Master Gerold has good expertise on the matter... I believe this is Hildesheim. Nice to find out where it's actually located. The crazy capital city of Germany abeam and behind our 777. Thank goodness we are safe from ecologist terrorism at this altitude. The ICAO might as well issue a warning. Night is falling as we head further to the east. Sleeping time! Hopefully the passengers had a good sleep... ...as the sun rises over Turkmenistan. Another Stan. Paki. Stan. Some hours later we reach Phuket. The 'Singapore Effect' materializes in front of our aircraft. What's this, you might ask... THIS. The incredibly bad weather that is common around Singapore. Our descent path resembles a mace. We managed to avoid the worst and thankfully, the weather closer to the aerodrome is better. The landing was fairly good! *clapclap* The passengers rejoice over the amazingly professional work of the pilots, as a certain stinky stench enters their noses, the proof of a composure somewhat capable of improvement. Thank goodness again we quickly reach the gate, opening the doors. The crew and passengers rapidly flee the scene, the crew to the hotel, some passengers to the rest room, leaving the cleaning personnel with the thankless task... Bye bye, 777! See you soon, freshly cleaned!
  4. This was a nice relaxing flight from PHNG, Kaneohe, to PHJR, Kalaeloa.
  5. Today I tried WA79 on both XP11 and P3D. I enjoyed them both, each one excelling in different aspects. But IF I had to choose only one of them, I would still choose the amazing P3D version. Why? I will respond with something @Jack Sawyer once told me, and I think it is a perfect definition: "P3D has meat on its bones." Don't get me wrong: the XP11 version is also a joy to fly, and IMHO it really wins on some aspects (for many people the XP11 will be the winner). Just to mention one of its wonders: the amazing surrounding area (state), TE Oregon. My choice was to buy both , and I am happy with my decision. Here are some images from my flights, hope you like it. XP11 ---------------------------------------------------------------- P3D
  6. Frame rate still crippling with TE, but when you're just walking around it ain't so much of a problem. This is simply gorgeous - a wonderful piece of work. And I'm sure it will be even more impressive after my next CPU upgrade, whenever that'll be (probably at least another generation or two away). Meantime, I can always use XP when I want to actually fly. Not much else to say about the pix. Just a wonderful place to explore on foot, early in the morning (I can do early in the sim, but not in RL) Love this sort of thing - excellent! Jiving broom guy is up early, too That could take a while Doing a bit of Tai-Chi Still at it I put this 'plane in just to remind you that this isn't actually real! Getting hard to believe the quality of some of these products - stunning stuff, Orbx.

  8. P3D + ORBX KAVX + A2A + ASCA = unparalleled realism (lovely colors, lovely textures, lovely water, lovely clouds, lovely aircraft behavior, really nothing to dislike here).
  9. Same early morning scenario as my last post. Heading up the river to see what the view from this level is like. Tate Modern on the left . . . St Paul's on the right Not a flying pig to be seen Lots of nice bridgework here Did notice a lot of flying houses on this trip. Don't know if that's down to my setup for some reason or just one of those things. You wouldn't really notice them if you were airborne so maybe they're just there and nobody spotted them in development. Most likely to be my fault though, things usually are (I'm told)
  10. What a wonderful scenery! In my opinion it offers one of the best airport surroundings in any sim, ever.
  11. I took off from Belgrade at noon, returned at dusk. IMHO this airport and its surroundings look really good!
  12. Exploring the wonderful Papua New Guinea region included in Jackson's pack. ORBX recreated this rainforest region beautifully.
  13. In the product description, ORBX informs that this scenery includes " over 250 sq km of 80 cm crisp imagery" . This, together with P3D level of realism, adding the amazing AS+ASCA, A2A aircraft and PTA, is a bush flyer' s dream. In my opinion, with this scenery ORBX created one of the most perfect areas to fly, ever. But let the pictures speak for themselves...
  14. Beautiful freeware scenery, I will install all of them, and then practice some local flights, it will be cool!
  15. I like very much this scenery, and particularly the super difficult approach at Bero Field.
  16. P3D, KEGE Control Tower, Ultimate Traffic Live, SkyForce 3D, Active Sky! A "friend" ask if I could fill in at the tower this evening for him for a few hours, I, like the idiot I am said of course I could. I had not seen the weather report and I think that he had seen it! Anyway I showed up at KEGE for tower duty just about dusk, sat down at the computer to see how this might go. 1. Looks like it might be a quiet evening for me, nothing on the radar for several miles around, no arrivals, no departures to worry about other than a few small GA so, a little coffee, snacks and relaxation! HA! 2. About the time this little guy calls in for clearance for take off, all HE...double hockey sticks broke out around the area! Thunder, lighting, wind, not good, not good at all. So I hunkered down for the duration and made my plans to strangle my so called ATC friend! 3. After several hours of this mess, luckily no rain to speak of, although a couple of power outages and it was getting late... 4. The lightning and wind drove this poor fellow to ground in a hurry! 5. That bolt looks like it just might have made contact with the skin of the plane, but I guess not, he made it down to the runway just fine! 6. It finally started to clear up, other than an occasional strike off in the distance and I was able to enjoy my last cup of joe! 7. One last hoorah of a strike! Spilled that hot coffee all over myself, now my "friend" is really gonna suffer!! Thanks for spending a thrilling evening with me in the Control Tower at KEGE!
