  1. Been reading a bit about the fifth gen aircraft recently, and thought I'd go back and have a look at some of them again in the sim. Still feel they lack soul, but beginning to feel warmer towards them. Took the default P3D F22 on a run up from Sydney to the Gold Coast making a noise over Coffs Harbour Wonder what the pressure wave will do to that pool? Better get out of Dodge. That wasn't exactly stealthy. Rather enjoyed that, and will continue on up the coast and maybe west across the Northern Territories. Haven't been in P3D much lately - getting to grips with XP and Ortho4XP. Got my own version of TrueEarth UK now and it is great. Fully anticipate the proper Orbx version will blow it out of the water but for now it's a taster of things to come. But it was good to get back here and see the Orbx world again - each sim has its own different magic. And I saw somewhere on here that KPSP is coming to AFS2 - whoo-hoo! (And hey - can we have our "preview" function back!)

  3. Around Broome YBRM on Cessna 172 A2A.
  4. I'm hoping that someone can help me with this. I've decided to rebuild my Flight Sim in the spare room, since I have had little space until now to set it up. I purchased my original orbx product (see below) in June, 2015 and I am not sure if it is the same as the one currently advertised on the website. The difference in file size suggests it's not. Can you please let me know what differences there are between the two, such as graphics, compatibility, e.t.c. If I need to update, I'd like to know before the sales end. Thank You.

  5. NZ14 on the first leg of the trip to LAX in the new toy. At the gate in Christchurch Aotearoa living up to its name. Aoraki poking above the tops Cumulogranite below I'm hoping the thing will grow on me. I've always thought the -200 was prettier. The long hump on this looks wrong. Still, there is always the freighter.
  6. Don't really think this guy should be anywhere near this part of the world, but he looks good here and this guy is definitely lost, Canada Coastal Patrol heading for the Gibson Desert? But then, it's my world and I can do what I like in it!
  7. Three from Sydney in the default Connie - Night shots with lots of lights always were a problem for me in v3. At 4k I saw a lot of OOMs or crashes. But now . . And the lights go way out over there . . . And down a bit, over Tasmania in the Legacy. These are pretty dark, but if you've got a big monitor with good colour balance they're worth a look. Again, the level of detail and the lighting is amazing This is where Bermuda can dig out an appropriate music clip, I suspect - And this is just the beginning! Active Sky and Rex are promising updates soon, all the utilities I use for v3 are coming good, it looks like porting my hangar across may not be too problematical, and then of course there will be all that lovely ORBX scenery coming across as well. And to top it all, I think I've found a decent builder who can do a bunch of the jobs I've been putting off out in the garden! Life is good!
  8. Well today is the day I start a 2 months holiday to Thailand leaving YMML at 3:15 this afternoon on TG773 HS-TKA. 28.
  9. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the airport. 1. A few elevation problems at YMML. 2. Then the Vectors airport elevation corrections thingy would not run. A quick search on the forums found the problem, deleted the 8 files as suggested and all is fixed. I do get worried when problems are so easy to fix.
  10. just a random assortment of shots to kinda catch up a bit:
  11. Passing the Daly River in the Northern Territory after an early morning departure from Darwin. 19.
  12. 'parently some cars race here. Same day as the Japanese F1 GP most years, so I miss it... Shut down after the trip from Illawarra Regional Airport (Wollongong to most of you):
  13. On an early autumn morning my Tasmania adventure begins... Climbing out from Apollo Bay... ... and heading to King Island: Still early morning I went further south, across Hunter Island to Cape Grim, with Woolnorth Windfarm. I was told once, that you find the cleanest air on earth there (as the next industry westwards is in Argentina...), but it also seems to be a windy point. Entering the north coast of Tasmania we pass Smithton... do you recognize The Nut left from us? ... and have breakfast in Burnie / Wynyard. A fantastic OZx add-on by Ken Hall - thanks for that! As the sun comes out, it is time for some touch-and-gos here. Well, well, it´s autumn, so the weather gets a bit more dramatic soon. So we circle around Table Cape and head eastwards, towards Burnie ... ... Penguin, ... ... Devonport and Georgetown. Time to enter the mouth of Tamar River and turn southeast towards Launceston - but what is this construction below? That needs more attention on another flight, but for now ... I am off for Lunch in Launceston. And - you know my ORBX forum name? - I know where to have lunch in that city. Guess the name of the restaurant!
  14. Finally got some time off from my bathroom rebuild, and had a flight worth sharing. I've bought shedloads of stuff from the ORBX and various other sales over the last few weeks, but haven't had time to even install a lot of it, let alone fly around anywhere. Still, a couple more weeks and I'll be a free man again! In the meantime, I did install Jandakot and a nice DH-89 and have a quick half-hour circuit around Perth as the sun came up. Nice and relaxing, and not a tube of sealant to be seen anywhere! Heading off as the sun just begins to rise turn round and head over the city towards the coast turn south and head down the coast a bit Brightening up now looks like it's gonna be a nice day! Have turned round now, heading back to Jandakot And here we are, back down where we started. Looking forward to doing a bit more of this!
  15. Obviously, some keen flight simmers were involved with the planning and execution of this terrific spotting area, always keen to visit on business trips. The noise levels and visibility on finals is amazing, especially with the arrival of 747's. There's even a rain shelter!
  16. This is just a clearout of shots Ive been meaning to share (and are worth sharing imo) landing at YMAY: random new Zealand shots: thanks for looking. this is default P3D with my own sky and clouds. I think you can get great light and shadow with just default engine and shadows.
  17. took off from Alice again, and headed north/north east. I think there could be a market here - "postcards from the middle of nowhere". Talk about wide open spaces here's the middle of nowhere as the sun goes down! flying into the night the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night (you may need to zoom in here - it's not completely blank, honest!) heading to dawn in nowhere central Now I'll be the first to admit that I'm basically anti-social, but I think that might be a bit too much even for me. It would be very fine to have a hut with a verandah there though, if you could just beam in for a few moments solitude and silence and then beam back home again. I can imagine it being rather wonderful, in lots of ways.
  18. Just installed YMUI Murray Island AU P3D, and had to share a some shots of an excellent little freeware area by Tim Harris, Thank you Tim! The Airport YMUI Civilian Dude taking a stroll along a nice little beach front. He found an abandoned boat and decided to go for a spin. Shot from Estrecho de Torres Island toward Murray Island (according to google) Watching the Sun set. Sunset on the beach A bit later in the day If you haven't been there in a while, it's well worth the trip and a stroll around the grounds! I would have gladly paid for it.
  19. Don't ask where it came from, or how it got here. I just morphed from the Wallaby into this to see how it looked over Alice And here we are, back on the ground That was fun!
  20. Ant's Wallaby on its home ground Kinda fun!
  21. Hi, I have the SP4 AU scenery and some AU airports, plus trees and clouds. Is there any advantage as far as Australia is concerned in getting the Global + Vector package ... would it add anything to the AU scenery ? thx Steve
  22. Finally finished installing a kitchen, and got some time on the machine. Fancied some wide open spaces so it's off from Alice Springs to Ayer's Rock. And I've found the perfect plane for the ride! Taking off from Alice flying north over the town This is a fine looking plane. It's free from the Ford Tri-Motor site and comes with loads of liveries. Out from Alice now, about to turn round and head for Ayer's Rock And after a while - Heading over to the airport, will swing past and turn back for an approach and landing Did actually land ok, if admittedly with the sim running at slowest speed, but it took ages to stop the beast rolling. Don't know if that's a characteristic of the real aircraft, or just the model. Or I may just have been doing it wrong. Anyway, with the help of slew mode I eventually parked up ok. Got a couple of hundred yards of hedge to deal with next, and another flat to fix up, so don't anticipate a huge amount of flight time. And this is supposed to be retirement? I must be doing it wrong.
