  1. This doesn't just have to do with KPSP, but it's late and that's the only piece of graphical interactive artwork I can think of at the moment. The root question is, will there be SODE jetway implementation in your current and future airport projects that have...err...jetways? Thanks, Mark
  2. G'day everyone, I'm incredibly delighted to announce my next foray into IPACS Aerofly FS2: Palm Springs International Airport! Hot on the heals of the truly ground-breaking TrueEarth Netherlands, I've been fine-tuning the last bits and pieces to bring one of my favourite airport projects over to AFS2. A much-loved ORBX destination, the airport was originally released for FSX and P3D and has been brought to life for the new simulator. Perfectly situated a short hop away from Los Angeles, Palm Springs ranks is one of the most dramatically beautiful locations within the United States. Much like other recent airports brought over to AFS2 (shout-out to Monterey Regional and Eagle County), Palm Springs was chosen as it sits smack dab in the middle of the default Aerofly default coverage area. This means that not only do you have several ultra-HD ORBX destinations to visit nearby, but you also have a seamless transition and plethora of beautiful photorealistic locations to visit en-route. For those not yet to experience Aerofly FS2 itself, look forward to incredibly performance-friendly simming and stunning terrain visuals. The IPACS team have also created new cultivation types for this airport; expect to see new vegetation types not seen in previous ORBX Aerofly releases. As with many of my recent airports, Palm Springs includes an enormous 1500 sq km area covering a wide variation of topography. From the lush golf resorts and gated communities of Palm Springs to the harsh desert of the Coachella Valley floor, to the the high-altitude alpine wonderland of San Jacinto, there is plenty to explore in within this scenery. Palm Springs. Home of Frank Sinatra, chic modernist architecture, golf resorts and stunning desert vistas. An iconic resort city just beyond the furthest reaches of the LA metropolitan area, Palm Springs became the epicenter of all things cool and swingin' from the mid 1950s onwards; the perfect get-away for Hollywood's rich and famous (and even the occasional US President!). Located at the base of the towering San Jacinto Peak, Palm Springs is situated in one of the most dramatically scenic locations in the United States. Be sure to keep an eye out many Modernist landmarks around the city, as well as casinos, resorts, waterparks and even a couple of kitschy dinosaurs - these are just a few of the dozens of points of interest modeled in the scenery. For those who are looking forward to the much-anticipated R22 helicopter for AFS2, you'll also find the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway. This marvel of engineering was created during the 1960s to serve tourists visiting the upper reaches of San Jacinto. Each tower along the tramway route includes a precarious helipad - perfect for honing your landing skills! KPSP is an international airport located a short distance from the centre of downtown Palm Springs, and is currently host to twelve airlines serving the continental US, Canada and Mexico. The unique terminal is a combination of mid-century Modernism (the main building) and open-air planning (the Sonny Bono concourse). This makes for a wonderfully unique setting for your airliner flights; park alongside the outdoor terminal area that includes sculpted parkland, a children's playground, shops and even a well-known coffee chain. Beyond the terminal, there is plenty else to see at the airport. Explore the Palm Springs Aviation Museum (well worth the visit if you are passing through the area in real life), with it's wide variety of airside and non-airside exhibits. As well as this, check out the FBOs, the ongoing work at the Skywest facilities, and of course the (relatively) new control tower. As can expected for an Aerofly scenery, be sure to enjoy extremely good performance and high-end visuals, even on mid-range systems. If you are lucky enough to own a VR headset, this scenery is absolutely perfect for checking out -the feeling of speed, height and immersion are unparalleled. Whether you are intending to fly the Q400 up to Monterey or Eagle County, test the high-performance warbirds within the PSP circuit, terrorize the neighbours in the F-18, or take a relaxed scenic to LA in the C172, Palm Springs is your perfect base of operations for the heartland of the Aerofly world.

  3. United Express serves a quick flight from Palm springs KPSP to the Los Angeles airport KLAX, hereby an early morning departure and till cruising altitude for the short hop of 100 Mi. The second part(landing on KLAX) will be soon published as a movie in the section 'Community Movies': Turning right to fly over the San Jacinto Peak and over Banning direction Los Angeles:
  4. Another exciting Orbx-addition to AFS2, just installed and a joy to fly fluently(+100fps) over the fine detailled area of Palm Springs and the airport KPSP:
  5. Here are some shots from my first flight into KPSP, in Aerofly FS2... Awesome work Jarrad! Looking forward to what airport you have coming next to AFS2.
  6. Getting ready at Sonny Bono Airport for a trip to the coast, once again with AS16 real weather - and hoping for californian sun... This is what I call a blurry VC, as already reported I have this impression since I changed from 4.1 to 4.3. I must try to change some settings (which I did not change actively)... At least we can get her in the air and leave Palm Springs with nice views. Passing the San Gabriel mountains... ... before entering thick overcast on descend. Again. These coastal clouds are a pain! While I was carefully descending, ATC announced a change of runway, just to increase my stress level a bit. I was not even able to capture a shot of the milk outside - just in the final seconds the runway came into view: Full brakes... ... and here we are, ready for some crab dinner at Cannery Road. But where is the sunshine?
  7. Up the coast from foggy San Diego (I had to cheat with the weather after takeoff ) ... ... over Carlsbad, ... ... and climbing into the San Jacinto mountains. Here we roll down into Palm Springs. I have the impression that my settings (especially the VC) got a bit blurry with the change to p3d 4.3 - though the setting is still on 4096. Anyone got an idea to modify the sharpness (be it in p3d itself or in nvidia)?
  8. West to east was done in the P-51. East to west was started in the C172, had a couple of legs done in the C182, but mostly by Comanche, hopping via freeware airports. This is the last leg: Morongo Resort Shut down on Santa Catalina Island My next mission is up the west coast, via Orbx airports of course.
  9. So, off to test my theory about flying blind in the C-130. Heading off from KPSP - "ain't got no distractions, can't hear no buzzers and bells" (think "Pinball Wizard"). Never knew what most of that stuff did, anyway <grin> I've turned round now, and going to head up the valley If you view this full size and zoom in you'll see the dinos just down below the tail Up past San Bernadino Across the hills and coming in over Anaheim And coming in now to Long Beach (KLGB) Not sure what's happened to my textures around here And down OK, I cheated a bit at the end and overran a bit, then slewed back, but all in all I was happy with that. I have Little Nav Map running on a secondary 19" monitor and that gives me speeds, altitude etc and I can get away with that, so I feel I've got my Herc back!
  10. Wasn't sure I was going to get all the way up over these pointy bits but made it and carried on to put down at McClellan-Palomar Must be wonderful to do that for real.
  11. I've missed this place! Flown in to it a couple of times in v4, forgetting it was the default version, and been horribly disappointed. But now it's back! Whoo-hoo! I've missed all these favs. I've still got everything on the machine in V3, but it's not the same. It all feels so much sharper in V4. I can sense some time well-wasted coming up in the weeks ahead! Thank you ORBX.
  12. Been file fiddling for weeks, but finally approaching the point I can begin to actually take a few flights. Been at the freeware sources again (as well as the Alabeo sale and the regular Virtavia/Razbam sales - but that's another story) so here's a big yellow beastie for Jack. Are you ready? - "this is Kaptain Krusty welcoming you on board . . ." (just down there in the middle of the shot are my favourite dinos) "Moe has now opened the bar on the upper deck" Got about 30 other lairy paint jobs for this as well. Makes a change from the Legacy!
  13. Schweizer 300CBi - at Palm Springs (I wish you could see these on 5760 x 1080 display) The water spray looks way better in "video" mode Orbx – FTX: Global, Vector, Open LC North America, HD Trees; FTX: NA Gold USA Southern California; FTX: Global KPSP Palm Springs International
  14. This is the view from the tower, if I remember correctly. No time to wave!
  15. ... from Palm Springs Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  16. So, I was playing around with SCE, setting up my groups and seeing if I could overcome my OOM issues in So-Cal (not terribly successfully, so far). I headed off from Banning towards KPSP with my VAS monitor running on my second screen when I looked down and thought, "hmmm . . ." So I went back and changed into something more handy for a bit of a look round Yep, they're still there. Guess I'll sneak down and take a look "Go on then, nip out and take a look", "Why me, you're so keen, you go out there!" "Ok, hold my jacket then and I'll see if I can sneak up on them" I wasn't sure if these were some kind of "easter egg" snuck in by Jarrad, or actually meant to be there, so I went off to Google, and yep, there they were - Have to say though, looking at these RL images, I definitely prefer the ORBX world in this case. Has a much nicer and less tacky feel to it.
  17. Late afternoon flight from Palm Springs to Las Vegas Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers karsten
  18. When you feel like trying something demanding on a machine... Here is the data: winds 242/036, coming in for runway 31. The B-747 is actually not turning but coming down straight, facing the wind. TAS 134, 30 degree flaps and a straight windsock. I can already smell the burned tires... Now is the time to apply full right rudder and let the aircraft deal with the rest. So much fun...and it's free, or almost! Cheers.
  19. Amazing scenery Jarrad ! Thanks. I took these a while back but it seems I never submitted the post at the time . . . Kind regards,
  20. Haven't visited KPSP since P3D installed, so thought I would visit the tram and view the mountainscapes, you are welcome to tag along. Going via the foot hills to get to the tram. Foot hills continued... Ground floor of the tram system in the valley below. Got a call that someone was sick on the tram so we land on a tower and wait for the tram car. And wouldn't you know who got off and needed a ride back down the mountain, yep Civilian Dude! He still looks sick! Not gonna let him ruin the flight, so we go on to the top! Made the top floor of the tram system at San Jacinto Peak & had a look around, nice views for sure. Headed back down to the doctor with the Dude! Sorry for the sick guy getting on board, hopefully he's not contagious!! Thanks for tagging along anyway!
