  1. Beautiful Australia.
  2. The land adjacent to Botany Bay was settled for many thousands of years by the Tharawal and Eora peoples and their associated clans. On 29 April 1770, Botany Bay was the site of James Cook's first landing of HMS Endeavour on the land mass of Australia.
  3. After travelling through the red center with Wayoutback Safaris last year, they would be my first choice for a tour through the tropical north as well https://www.wayoutback.com.au/destinations/top-end-tours/3-day-4wd-dragonfly-dreaming-top-end-camping-tour/ . And I give myself a virtual teaser before... We´d start from Darwin... ... pick up all the guests from their hotels... ... and drive down Stuart Highway past Emkaytee. Turn right at Coomalie Creek... ... and leave (OZx´s) Batchelor to tour left. First stop in Litchfield NP is Florence Falls (obviously dry at the day of flight ), ... ... followed by Wangi Falls. You can see the pool at its bottom. Then we´d make a sharp turn eastwards and fly along Lake Bennett... ... follow Arnhem Highway across Mary River... ... and turn right for some 4WD driving on Jim Jim Road. Finally we´d reach Cooinda for the night camp. Sorry for the recommendations. They have deserved it.
  4. Another day, another morning flight. From Hobart, Tasmania... ... over the road crossings at Sorell... ... and then heading south, ... ... to the historic site of Port Arthur. Up the coast to the nice OZx airstrip of Lagoon Bay, ... ... Maria Island, another historic convict place, ... ... and the villages of Triabunna... ... and Swansea, ... ... leads us to the Freycinet NP. Coles bay to the left, the Hazards to the right. A little round over Cape Tourville lighthouse... ... and to Wineglass Bay. The right place to land here is Friendly Beaches.
  5. Then comes the day when one has to leave the land of Oz. At least in a stylish plane - just chartered for this special flight. Out of Darwin, ... ... for some seconds following Stuart Highway again, ... ... but soon turning north to the Java Sea. Some cloudy hours later we can spot Borneo´s west coast... ... and begin to descend... ... over Pulau Bintan.... ... and Bataam... ... into Singers. I find Singapore is the perfect hub in south east Asia. Let´s decide where to go next!
  6. The second day of our (virtual) Dragonfly Dreaming tour will lead us through the northeast of Kakadu NP. And making the descriptions easier for me, I just take them from a suggested operators´ website. "Awake for breakfast this morning before joining an iconic Yellow Waters Cruise. A must do activity within Kakadu National Park, the award winning Yellow Waters cruise is Aboriginal owned and centres around a spectacular billabong system that is home to some remarkable and diverse wildlife. Spotting crocodiles is only one of the many wildlife viewing opportunities on this unique water system. Departing camp we travel to nearby Nourlangie Rock. Here you can see how local Aboriginal people lived in this area through changing times. Environmental and social changes are reflected in the rock art and in the ground, where archaeologists have uncovered over 20,000 years of Aboriginal occupation." Driving past Jabiru, tourists will surely not visit this POI added with OZx: The Jabiru Uranium mine. "Later this afternoon we arrive at the culturally significant Aboriginal art site of Ubirr, located within the East Alligator region of the park. Here you will view a wide range of ancient Aboriginal art which will be interpreted by your guide. Learn the story of the Rainbow Serpent and climb the Nadab Lookout for panoramic views over the floodplain and beyond into Arnhem Land. After learning about the area, it’s time to pick out a quiet spot to sit while we watch the sun set over the Kakadu escarpment before making the short journey to our private and permanent campsite for the night." I change planes in Oenpelli... ... to start day 3 of the tour from here ... ... and leave the virtual camp at Jabiru. "Today the jewels of Kakadu National Park await. Departing early we travel ... ... to Twin and Jim Jim Falls. Explore Twin Falls Gorge which is accessed by 4-wheel drive track, a boat shuttle service and a rocky walking track and boardwalk. Once there relax on the sandy banks and admire the falls. There’s more 4-wheel driving as we make our way to Jim Jim Falls where a walk through monsoon forest and over boulders takes us to the waterfall and plunge pool which are surrounded by 150 metre cliffs. Spend the afternoon taking in the sheer beauty of your spectacular surrounds before we make our way back ..." crossing Mary River... .. and the Adelaide River... ... "to Darwin and your accommodation after three magical days of adventure and wildlife, rich in cultural history and natural beauty." Italic text is copied directly from the cited tour operators website. According to my experience they do not compete with Orbx but also provide good entertainment. I already enjoyed the descriptions as much as the virtual flights.
  7. If you wondered about the final destination of this repositioning after flight 1, ... ... I can give you the answer. VA1459 starts in Melbourne with slightly uninviting weather. At least the TrueGlass effect works as great... ... as precipitFX does. Climbing over Victoria in the rain... ... and over the clouds. Flying northwest, at Danggali Wilderness area the dry center begins. The green-red borderline near Adelaide, where Stuart Highway begins. You can even see the southern ocean in the background. Lake Eyre. For those who have not seen it in RL yet: Hours later we leave the red center near Tennant Creek... ... and cross Litchfield NP... ... on the way to the north coast... ... and into Darwin. To our left you can see the northern end of Stuart Highway. Parked. Without afcad and also without GSX services. But with the plan to spend some days here!
  8. After the Tasmania tour of the past days we now take a jetplane to change the state. And to drastically change the climate... A rainy morning sees us leaving Launceston. Boarding the way I like it. True Glass works, and the weather radar also has a clear message. The first gap in the clouds came right in time to spot Wilsons Promontory NP. But the approach into Melbourne was not so clear. Luckily the curtain went away soon... ... and we could set ourselves. Time to get a coffee and change planes for leg 2.
  9. ... to Tasmania. We go from Launceston airport towards the city... ... and descend over Tamar River, ... ... to look at the entry of Cataract Gorge. Left of the bridge should be the famous Stillwater restaurant, at least the name should be well known to some. https://www.stillwater.com.au/ We enter the gorge and chase South Esk river, ... ... towards Trevallyn Dam. Finally we play a round at the Country Club, though its buildings are invisible. Tomorrow we´ll leave the Apple Isle...
  10. Ready for a little hike in the morning? Let´s go to Dove Lake under the iconic Cradle Mountain... ... and stop at the parking lot to walk around it. The weather may not look too fine, but this shot proofs there should be some more trees in the sim scenery. At lunchtime it is a good idea to get back to Cradle airstrip... ... change the equipment... ... and follow C132 westwards. Passing Lake Mackintosh, ... ... and Zeehan... ... on the way to Ocean Beach. Turn right here and your next landfall is Argentina. But we are carefully flying downwind into Strahan. OK, the old OZx airfield does not longer blend well into the AU scenery... ... but good enough to land and park. No let´s go to the city for recharging.
  11. Today we go for another major tourist route along the east coast of Tasmania. From Friendly Beaches, where we stopped yesterday, ... ... heading north, where the small access road meets the A3. A look over the shoulder shows us Great Swanport and the Freycinet coast to the left. Bicheno. A good place for Fish & Chips, Coffee and Sunrise watching. Work for the driver to cross Elephant Pass. Easier for the pilot... St. Helens, beautifully located at a bay. For me this would be a good location for an Orbx airport as well. And if need be, one could include Binnalong Bay... ... and the Bay of Fires. A long and winding road leads us via Scottsdale... ... towards Launceston. Runway 32 to our right, sorry I can´t give you evidence of the landing today.
  12. Not too much to say about the locations on this flight. Unfortunately with some autumn rain. The telescopes of the University of Tasmania were added by TeeCee. I like this light, ... ... but I do not like this weather. Flying down the River Derwent we see the Cadbury chocolat factory, ... ... some industrial complexes, ... ... and finally the harbour. Again, pimped by Terry to my greatest pleasure. Tasman Bridge in its glory. And I can even find the runway!
  13. Another couple of airfields picked-up in the generous sale with some old, but gold scenery - YCNK and YPEC. Really liked how authentic the area felt in this short hop. Aus v2 more than adequately filling in the gap between the 2 airfields. Vineyards of the Hunter Valley departing Cessnock Turning onto final at Pelican
  14. Continuing the Tasmanian Tour (I fear the famous road tour https://targa.com.au/targa-tasmania-competition/ will not take place this season) we depart from Strahan... ... along the B24... ... up to the environmental disaster around Queenstown. Then we follow the A10 along the wilderness mountains, ... ... and pass a lake that is named "Laughing Jack Lagoon". Who has given it this name and why? However, at Tarraleah Falls we can simply fly over the meandering road... ... until we come to the lowland plains near Ouse. A little detour brings us to Mt. Field NP with the famous Russell Falls, ... ... before we continue to follow River Derwent along the Paper Mill at New Norfolk. Some sights added by @teecee: Bridgewater bridge, ... ... and Hobart harbour at Sullivan´s Cove. Nice views of Hobart during the approach. And here we are!
  15. Some years ago you could take a scenic flight from Strahan... ... over Sarah Island (a very unconvenient place for convicts in 19th century)... ... and heading inland. Do not take the wrong inlet, it is the left one! IFR flying at its finest... Not easy to find a safe place to land. At least not for me, that is the difference to the professionals... After lunch it would be time to head back over the wilderness. It should be difficult to access these beaches: There is no street shown in the maps I have. The outlet of the bay is called Hells Gates from the convict times. But our tour returns to Strahan, so no need to fight the currents...
  16. Time to start this autumns Tasmania tour, and, like most times from Launceston. Did I ever mention this airport look is as outdated as chinese sceneries would be, because the buildings and streets were complete overhauled during the last 10 years? A short view over the fields of Sharman´s Wines... ... and the golf course of the Country Club Casino. The buildings should be northwest of the little lake. Following the NH1 we find ourselves near Carrick. Some VIPs here know this village well, am I right, @teecee ? Next famous landmark for some of us is the TasAlk facility near Westbury, ... ... followed slightly later by the camouflaged airstrip at Deloraine. Meandering roads and rivers along the Alumn Cliffs, where we head left... ... to meet, under the right wheel, Trowunna Wildlife Sanctuary http://trowunna.com.au/ , taking care for a huge number of Wombats and Tasmanian Devils. Here we climb over the shoulder of Mount Roland, ... ... with Claude Road airport situated at its north. Lake Barrington, ... .. and the nearby Cethana Dam guide the way to... ... the Cradle Mountain airstrip. Time to look for a tent or hut to sleep...
  17. My preferred domestic airline is getting ready in Tullamarine to cross Bass Strait. Having no advanced 737 in my hangar I have to cheat a little bit... Those passengers on the left side can enjoy a little view over Melbourne. "No, do not all move to the left side at once!!" Quite cloudy today... at least those on the right side could get a glimpse of Philipp Island. And soon after we approch Tasmanias north coast... ... with the mouth of Tamar River and the harbour of Bell Bay to be seen here. Turning into final... ... and here we are established. The summer was hot and dry, as we can see. Safely landed. I am still longing for a more actual representation of Launy aiport´s buildings .
  18. The second part of my Victoria tour leads me from Warranambool... ... across an OZx highlight, Cobden, ... ... to Halls Gap. A very prominent entry point to the Grampian mountains. Hard to spot: below us is (should be) the famous rock formation "The Balconies". For a more intense exploration I landed at the nearby OZx airstrip and walked up the hill, but no screenies to prove. Instead, I can only show you the return flight next day out of YGMP... ... crossing the Balconies again, ... ... also Halls Gap, ... ... before arriving back at Melbourne Tullamarine for another plane change.
  19. After arrival in Australia it was now time to explore the surroundings of Melbourne. Getting ready... ... and airborne. Two airports in a row. It seems that the Essendon elevation issues are solved now? A little Melbourne overview. Don´t get sick! "This is ReinAir, we do not have bags for you." I can´t name all the icons here. Therefore let´s follow the M1 southbound... ... passing Avalon, ... ... Torqay´s Tiger Moth World, ... ... and joining the Great Ocean Road at Anglesea. This photoreal OZx part does not longer fit totally perfect into AU scenery, ... ... neither does Airey´s Inlet. But still this is a fantastic landing challenge (not for the Lancair...). Uncomfortable flying between the cloud layer... ... and these fantastic-looking mountains. This time we did not land at Apollo Bay, ... ... and passed Cape Otway (with a lighthouse just placed for Jack), ... ... also the 12 Apostles, ... ... before crossing Port Campbell. The flying tourist has to go on to Warranambool... ... for a stop at the end of this day!
  20. Directly following the previous night flight... ... I added flight SQ227 Singapore-Melbourne to test the full virtual exhaustion. 18 minutes after takeoff the equator is crossed and the lucky ones anong the passengers fall asleep. Not much to see from the continent; even over Adelaide it is still night. But soon the sun sets, ... ... and one could spot Birdcage Reserve. Good morning, Victoria! It took me some time to load the autogen of Melbourne. At least landing worked well. But I can´t say this is a welcoming weather!
  21. Hi, came across several black textures whilst flying East Coast segments. As these anomalies didn't look identical to some of the other reports of Black Tile textures etc - I thought I'd raise it here to see if this issue is on my end or not. Coordinates (P3D) are; Pic 1: Lat - S 34 10.56 - Lon - E 150 8.18 Pic 2: Lat - S 33 13.18 - Lon - E 151 2.57 Thanks & regards,
  22. Located in the center of Australia v2 the flight over TANBAR / YTNB involves a systematic crash. Reported by Tchoup I passed in this zone at vertical of TANBAR / everyone goes down. Try to get TANBAR back into your P3D and tell me what happens when you launch the flight.
  23. In the upcoming weeks I will bother you with some flights and places we have visited during our holiday in September. Maybe boring to you, but for me this is one of the bigger pleasures of sim flying... Here we go, and I´ll skip the night flight with Singapore´s A350 into their home town. We start with a budget flight in the morning (well, the worst was the check-in procedure, the rest was as expected and therefore reasonable). Ready for boarding. Engines started... ... and off we go. The usual ship meet in front of Singers. A nice view on the tropical seas during climbout. Hours later, near Cape Leveque: The first view of Terra Australis. Vector is outstanding. I was fortunate to capture these shots, because most of the (electronic) windows were darkened. Traffic. 1000 ft below, no worries. Some salty lakes... ... and sand dunes. Orbx, you have to change them as you have a 90° offset ! Unfortunately not much to see in the late phase of the flight: The destination was covered by darkness. But I am sure you guess the city - if not I´ll give you a hint: You could hang a very big coat there. And my next report will be in daylight for those who still are interested.
  24. Hello Ive started having issues where the scenery isnt loading properly in Tasmania. I have uninstalled the demo so it doesnt clash with AUv2. I have also redone the terrain cfg without any luck using P3Dv4.5. I use tomatoshade...could it be a corrupt shader cache? Seems as though its not just Tas but the rest of Australia. Any help appreciated.
