  1. Found a needle in a haystack: Flying over the city of Meißen in Germany (near EDDC Dresden) with Germany North and Germany South active I found a small patch of morphing night textures. First, I followed the usual steps by Nick and Holger (i.e., a new lclookup.bgl, a new terrain.cfg) but I could not get rid off the bug. So, I reinstalled GES and GEN but the night textures remained. After fighting with this issue in P3Dv4 I tried to replicate it in v5 and could find the exact same error. Having still a fairly vanilla v5 with only Global, OLC and GEN/GES running (with OLC border blending unchecked) I would now conclude that this is indeed a scenery error. I would appreciate if somebody from Orbx could please check this. Interestingly enough could I not find any similar error. But as this happens in Meißen it can probably happen at other locations too. Thanks, Christoph (The screenshot is from v5 but it does look similar in v4).
  2. Staying at home convinced me to buy a new monitor. A slight risk, as Doctor Internet told me UHD/4k resolution (3840*2160) would only be working with GPUs 1070 or above, and you can see from my spoiler I use a 1060. Nevertheless it works, frames are ok, the only borderline point is the temperature: As my GPU is utilized between 70-110 % during flying, its temperature raises to about 75°C. This causes the CPU to warm up to 71°C as well, which gives me a BIOS warning. I´ll have to watch this... After the tech talk, we go to the results: Overwhelming. So many more details seen during the flights, not only from the instruments, but also from the scenery. I am enthusiasted. A first test flight lead me over my home town, Hanover:
  3. Just rain and storm here in northern Germany. I needed to see some winter colours, so I set up a little nordic tour. Starting in Hanover... ... and climbing out to the northeast, ... ... I reached the Baltic Sea near Rostock. The Swedish coast ahead, with the invisible Copenhagen in the background. Rushing up the country... ... until Stockholm awaits in the evening light. Perfect visibility... ... makes for a nice landing. Now lets go for a Smörgasbröd and some fine Öl!
  4. Finally, after a virtual absence of nearly 5 months it seems to be time to fly to my home airport again. So I´ll take a blue-white Lancair from Schiphol... ... turn west over Amsterdam CBD... ... and reach the German border relatively quick, near Rheine. Ibbenbüren power plant guides the way... ... towards Osnabrück with its remarkable railway cross. At Porta Westfalica the Orbx sceneries GEN and EDVY do not really use synchronized seasons, surprisingly. The monument for Wilhelm the Emperor has a brilliant location. And an impressive size. Plus a good view. One could see my company office on this shot. By plane it is really a short hop to Hanover. Here you see the southwest area with the Herrenhäuser (baroque) Gardens to the left. Just next to it you can see some famous hockey pitches, with occasional international action. The direct train from Amsterdam stops here at the main station (bottom of this shot). I live a bit more to the left (shown here as well). And the airport is not too far away. Home!
  5. Nearly I was flying to the same airport as Martyn, ... ... to a place called Pearson. Wait and see... . I have set the weather to end of April, as I will be doing the same flight in real at that time. From Frankfurt... ... across Cologne, ... ... to England. Not much to see here, I assume this is due to its separation from OpenLC_Europe. As a consequence, there would be no much sunshine in the country as well. Better visibility awaits us at Sept-Iles, Canada. Landing instructions... ... before the downwind leg. Here we see the Toronto Islands with Billy Bishop airport. Quite limited visibility on approach. At least the localizer has been captured and G/S is armed... But it got better on final. A slight view on Toronto cityscape... ... before landing at Pearson. Toronto-Pearson this is, Martyn!
  6. I hope there's enough ORBX scenery to be seen.
  7. 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!
  8. This is from the Lufthansa flight DLH518 from Frankfurt to San José, Costa Rica, where our friend @carlosqr lives. I uploaded a video of the approach a little while ago. Anyway, this flight also yielded some very nice views that I thought I could share with you: Take-off runway 07C in Frankfurt. Beneath lies Koblenz ("Confluentes") where Rhine and Mosel meet. EDDK / Cologne ahead. Over Cologne. EDDK. Wuppertal (to the upper right of the quarries / bright spots) and Essen (in the distance, left of the lake). EDDL / Düsseldorf and the Lower Rhine. Going ETOPS later over the Atlantic Ocean. Eleuthera / Bahamas. Nassau / Bahamas. Andros / Bahamas. Over the Caribbean Sea. Nicaragua / Honduras finally. Lake Cocibolca / Lake Nicaragua. Passing the lagoon of the volcano El Arenal. The Arenal is to the lower right of the lake. It's getting evening. Approaching the capital of Costa Rica, San José. This approach (RNAV W Rwy 25) requires a 180° turn on final with mountains on three sides and therefore full concentration. Done! (Passengers had to jump). Thanks, I hope you liked it!
  9. Due to my troubles ocurred during the switch to Win10 I did not fly & post as much as usual during the last two months. But I am getting back, slowly. Today you see me leaving for a short Easter holiaday, picking a safe Boeing at Hanover... ... climbing over the Wesergebirge... ... and reaching FL350 over the Rhein. Northern France is mostly cloudy, ... ... but at least we can spot Biarritz over the south, to the right. Hours later. Leaving the west coast of Africa behind... ... for a short hop over the Atlantic. Sandy Fuerteventura. Approching Gran Canaria from the south (as usual). You can see the global landclass is nothing but a disaster.
  10. ... and this was done nearly 2 months ago. With real weather on that day. And after installation of the latest ESSA version, which should have supported SODE jetways. Catering services for the Smörebröd and some fantastic fish "tapas" under way. Parked in the right area for the airline. But obviously SODE did not recognize that... so boarding happened by bus. Bye bye winter. You can clearly see Copenhagen below. Well, somehow you can: For example the Öresund bridge in the little gap between the clouds. This is Hamburg. Slightly hidden under some coverage... And here we are established to capture the glideslope in Hanover. Somehow GEN was already on spring, whilst Aerosoft still believed the airport needed snow. But ok, at least I found the runway!
  11. Leaving home again... ... and GEN already shows winter in a very beautiful way. Turning out to the right / north... ... to see Hanover airport & city above the Airbus. The Elbe river leads to hamburg - but you can´t see it under the clouds. Some colleagues flying around me. Copenhagen below... ... and Gotland to the right. If you look at the weather on the ND, our approach seems to be a good choice. Stockholm below, ... ... just before reaching Arlanda. Unfortunately the jetways can´t be used or replaced with SODE ones in Arlanda. Which makes our beloved passengers freeze when unboarding . @Magnus Almgren , please help them!
  12. After a late arrival in Frankfurt with ... ... we have to take the last connection of the day out of Frankfurt to Hannover: LH58, the so-called "Lumpensammler" (is "ragman" the right translation?) for us. I hope all our luggage makes the connection as well... Taking off the 07C - with a camouflage plane. Frankfurt CBD to our left. Not much to see on the ground, but a nice navaid to our right side. On short base you can see Hannover airport left ahead... ... and we are way too high! But I had no interest in going around, so I extended the speed brakes, released flaps and gear as soon as possible and skipped the autoland in order to speed up. Successfully. This was the last post of my "Vacation in Australia" series. I hope you enjoyed it?
  13. I will start my exploration of GermanySouth in Cologne - "Kölle" as the locals say. Getting ready at my home airport... ... and off to the east. The small squared lake below the belly may be quite famous, since a well-known man was staying there for some days in 2016. But we go on and turn to the right over the Altwarmbüchener See. Travelling in style. The Sauerland around Winterberg. Whenever I was there it was winter. And the mountains covered with snow. ATC had instructed us to use runway 24. An unusual choice, especially on a cloudy day like this: We came in very high, and had to circle before we could land slow enough for this short strip. And now for one local beer. Those who have been in Cologne know what this "one" means...
  14. A typical plane and a typical last leg of some of my intercontinental flights: Boarding a turboprop in Copenhagen ... ... and leaving on the 22R - in the right direction already. Uuups, ice formation on engines and window... ... under control when leaving Sjaelland. And soon we are over Germany: Lübeck, ... ... Hamburg hidden in the background, ... ... Celle. With NDB CEL already being the entry point for our STAR ... ... into Hannover. Many lakes to the south of the final, like the Hufeisensee: As you can see we are heading for the 27R. Good to be here again, I think I have virtually left this place half a year ago. Or even longer...
  15. The detail and hifi-representation of the Germany sceneries GEN & GES is fantastic. Hereby the area around and the airport itself of Porta Westfalia(EDVY):
  16. A lovely morning in Copenhagen, expecting spring... Close the doors, please, that´s just too cold here! You see, the season switcher already wants the landscape to be green... ... but the temperature indicator says something different. Crossing Lübeck... ... and the Mittellandkanal at Wolfsburg. If you follow the channel for some few kilometres you come to lovely Hannover. These Germany colours look (unfortunately) realistic for an average March. Currently it would be white... Descending into the clouds... ... with a view over Frankfurt. As you can see from the trees on the apron, this pilot has made a mistake. He did not activate the airport scenery . But he managed to get the Dash landed safely, at least!
  17. Speicherstadt is an unique part of Hamburg City and was build between 1883 and 1927, in 2015 added to the UNESCO-list. Hereby a view on the old warehouses that forms now a touristic attraction and a trendy place to live: Orbx-FTX scenery part of GEN (Germany North) - Heli = Aerospatiale SA 315B Lama X from FSHeliCH
  18. Hello, At EDHE in the GEN area one issue caught my eye: the buildings north of the airfield (German Air Force NCO Academy) are missing (in the red circle of my screenshot, see Google Maps for comparison to the screenshot). I noticed in your GEN/GES patch announcement that you were also fixing quite small details, so maybe you can include this missing detail in the next patch? It's my home airfield, so that would be great! The second point concerns the runway lighting of smaller airfields. At some airfields (e.g. EDKB, EDXF) there is no runway lighting, even though my ICAO chart says that they should be illuminated. I can't give you a full list of airfields here, but these are the first two ones where I noticed the problem. Best regards and keep up the great work, Daniel
