  1. Hey Guys, it's the 15th already and my wallet is open and ready
  2. A special view on Innsbruck and its airport LOWI when the sun has passed the horizon and the citylights are ignited. FS=AFS2 and aircraft=Aeromacci-S211.
  3. Just amazing this ground life, the details and the light in Innsbruck. I can´t take my eyes off ... Taxiing past the terminal... ... and taking off to the west (hey, wrong direction!). The paxes view to the Zirler pass... ... and here we replace the road map: You can see the road from Zirl (in the backgound right) north (right) of the airport through the city, passing the railway station and down to the Brennerautobahn in the left of this picture. Escaping the mountains in direction to Linz... ... and here the turboprop passengers already see the Danube river. This is how jet passengers enjoy the same area. Vienna, from the flight deck. And finally taxiing the Austrian way (sorry I don´t have the real life comparison shot, I was quite surprised to see that) ... ... towards the gates. Well, the wrong ones, this is the international terminal. But at least we can step back and have a beautiful waiting hall over here.
  4. Taking off from Munich across the Arena... ... and over Oberschleißheim. The Olympic parc of 1972 to the left, Moosach to the right. Some views in western direction... ... and to the city center in the south. You can see the Theresienwiese in the simmed shot in the right background. It is currently being prepared for the upcoming Oktoberfest. The different views are mainly because of the altitude, the Olympic tower pictures were taken from just 600 ft AGL. Turning south over Schwabing with the Siegestor, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, the Englischer Garten (where I miss the iconic Monopteros temple), and the city center in the background. Looking back to Munich. Following the motorway to the Starnberger See... ... and winding up the roads between Kochel- and Walchensee. Entering the pass at Mittenwald... ... across Schartnitz, which is already on the Austrian side. The old times when the fuel was cheaper in felix Austria are gone now. Minutes later we enter the Inn valley... ... while steeply descending the road at the Zirler Berg. Look what´s around the corner... ... from street level you can´t see that much. Getting down to park at the gliders area... Uups. The 337 has disappeared! Now I hope to meet the pilot of that yellow plane who has been seen here recently.
  5. In an earlier post(catching ICE train....), I announced further screenshot with a more aerobatic flight in my Pitts S2-B. The last shot is a collage and displays 4 different lightconditions that I regulary use for flights in AFS2 and my preferred setting(late afternoon). Enjoy the showcase : After flying around for an hour more, a look on my fuel-gauge tells me to quickly return to the airport, just before the darkness I made a safe landing on airport LOWI : Bonus - different lightconditions over Innsbruck via AFS2 as flightsimulator :
  6. The ICE-train from Munich in Germany to Milan in Italy passes with a stop at Innsbruck-railroadstation. I was heading same direction 'west'. After I was airborned I was flying for a while at about same speed as the highspeed ICE-train but my goal was doing some aerobics in my Pitts-S2B in the sky around the airport of Innsbruck, so I returned to stay in the airport-area of LOWI......these shots are for a future posting.
  7. Just grabbed this fantastic scenery, along with a bunch of others of course, and I just wanted to say WOW, nice job guys! It's absolutely glorious. I have one question, how in the heck did you get such complex scenery to run so smoothly? I have everything in P3D v4 maxed out and I can still maintain a locked 33fps during taxi and takeoff, it's absolutely amazing. However, other older airports like CYSE Squamish run kind of choppy... This isn't a support request as I am just wondering if there's some new kind of API that's either been created by you guys at OrbX or the people at Lockheed Martin? Awesome job, simply jaw dropping!!!
  8. My new toy,the M20R Ovation.
  9. Hi There Simmers! I just tested my new airplane A2A P-51H Mustang above the LOWI! Enjoy in screenshots: Cheers, Almedin
  10. A vintage DC2 in Austria colors coming from Vienna approaches and land at the airport of Innsbrück(LOWI) in rainy conditions and surprised the spectators:
  11. Hello dear ORBX community, LOWI did catch my eye and I just wanted to go for it. Unfortunately I discovered that on the bottom of the product page, LOWI scenery requieres at least 1 of 2 prerequisits: either FTX Global BASE or openLC Europe. Well this is something odd I've newer encountered in other airport purchases. I don't own any of the prerequisit products because I have other mesh and vector addons of different vendors (see signature). Now the Q is: can I still use the LOWI scenery? Thank you. BR, Gerald
  12. Hi guys first post here, I'm glad to be part of the orbx family, such an amazing scenery! I'm Andres from Vienna, Austria. I thought I'd share a video I did to introduce myself here. all music composed and recorded by me. Cheers guys!
  13. This video is a FSX flight of a simulated Lancair IV-P aircraft using PRO-ATC/X. The flight departs from Zurich airport (LSZH) in the canton of Zurich in Switzerland, and arrives at Innsbruck Airport also know as Kranebitten Airport (LOWI) in Tyrol, Austria. The Lancair IV-P is a very fast little single engine plane that has a pressurized cabin and thus can go to high altitudes. Based on YouTube analytical data, I’ve changed the format of my flight videos. The average person only watches for about 2 minutes. The best I can do with a flight is about 20 minutes. I will concentrate on departures, landings and scenery while still having most of the important air traffic control (ATC) commands too. I am retired and a hobby flight simulator enthusiast user name Polymerman.

  14. Well, I hope you´re not too tired of Connie screens from me, did another trip last night, a short hop of about 100 miles from Innsbruck to Manching, home of the Messerschmitt Foundation near Ingolstadt. Cruise altitude was set for 11.000 feet due to the mountains around Innsbruck. Weather was put in from FSXWX. Firing her up. Passengers are seated allready, full cabin for the short trip. Weather looks interesting with the low clouds in the valley. Yeah, climbout will be interesting, plan is to follow the valley until around 9.000 feet, that should clear the mountains. For sure this crate won´t do the same climb rate as that Dash 8. Once again, the old Queen of the skies stretches her wings and lifts into her natural environment. And into the soup, ATC wanted me to turn northwards heading 335, but that would have lead me straight into the rocks. Turning left along the valley. After close to 10 minutes of seing nothing but clouds, hand flying her following compass and my faith in the navigator, skies clear up slightly, Altitude should be enough to be above the mountains. And there it is, blue skies above. Still a bit shaky air, so I requested 14.000 feet. Graciously soaring through the calm skies, engines back to cruise settings, coffee and drinks being served. Heading back down over Germany, weather is more clear here, so ATC provided me with visual approach vectors. Full landing configuration, on final into Manching. Not seen a Messerschmitt buzzing around so far... Everything looks good, let´s set her down nicely. And the final part of the work, PAX have been lead out by the Stewardesses, now putting her into rest, ready for the next adventure. Had a good flight, only minor issue being that I accidently pressed the Y key and career mode was turned off by Accusim, so my landing wasn´t rated. FSXWX and REX TD put together some nice clouds, still thinking about Sky Force though. Cheers, Lennart
  15. I note a texture bug in LOWI Innsbruck (Aerofly edition). GA Parking, eastern end of ramp near air ambulance. When time of day is set to dusk-to-dawn hrs (night) two GA aircraft continue to display daytime textures as per screenshot and stand out.
  16. I have reached the next level of p3d-confidence: Managed to install EZDOKv2 (despite its desolate documentation) and got it configured within p3d. And at the end of the flight I even understood how to shift the cameras, so please excuse if I did not hit the perspectives optimal today. This test flight was done with the next default sim-aircraft, the R22. And around a scenery that was resting for many months unused on my SSD now... LOWI, first seen from the B171: The gliders area... And from the east end: Now we follow the way south to the Brenner Autobahn: The Bergiselschanze, designed by Zara Hadid. In 2 weeks you can see the Vierschanzentournee stopping here. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Hills_Tournament) Slightly south the Brennerautobahn looks interesting... Done. And just east of the bridge we can find a flying house. Well, the mesh is complex here, so that mistake is surely tolerable. No football going on currently. The trains are moving here - who wants to chase them? Finally the Inn river gives us some interesting sights... ... but this challenge surely is too much for me. @Jack Sawyer, there is work for you! I better rest on the hospital... ... before returning to this magnificent airport.
  17. Still my system drives me somehow crazy with P3D, I frequently get no menus but only an additional cockpit view window. Which brings usability to zero. Deleting all dll.xmls or shaders does not help, but frequent switching between full screen view / window view / other program windows. I suspect it has something to do with my computer / GPU settings... The lack of reliability / confidence keeps me a bit off installing any other stuff than the (convenient) Orbx one. So my test flights go with Orbx only, not even REX, weather, traffic, planes. Here we go from Munich EDDM... ... over the Erding plains ... ... and the Fußballstadion, ... ... to Moosach, where one of my daughters lives. Around the Olympic Park... ... Schwabing, the Englischer Garten, LMU and the Victory Gate... ... yes, the Victory Gate... ... towards the city center and the Deutsches Museum on an Isar island. Indeed the town hall looks impressive. Let´s head south across Grünwald and the 1860´s football stadium... ... and entering the Alps at the Walchensee. Crossed a first pass at the Zirler Berg... ... with a first view into the Inntal. Take the right crossroad to avoid the toll road and get onto the B171... Innsbruck. Approach under control... ... totally. Quite impressing views in this scenery... ... and surely I will compare it to my RL shots later...!
  18. Managed to get FSXWX installed into P3D today and took the C-47 out for a hop from LOWI to Kempten/Durach in real weather. Pics are a bit on the dark side, but that was the winter dusk lighting. Fired up and ready Off we go! Climbing out of LOWI Had some struggle to get her up here, but she made it. Passing the Zugspitze. And back down. Looking at Durach airfield, all snowed over. Had to find the runways among the snow. Might not have been permitted IRL this late. Over the fence. And switched off, heading for a warm beverage. Cheers, Lennart
  19. Had some fun around LOWI with Toni´s T-6, I think the colors worked quite fine together. Just some flying around, so no story to tell with these. Had some input issues during that flight that prohibited more interesting manouvers. Fixed them now by selecting Direct input in P3D. Hope you enjoy the shots! Cheers, Lennart
  20. Just when I thought it was safe to put my ccard away . . . and off over the Adriatic . . . Literally the first ten minutes with it, so can't really comment much about it. Looks like it'll be fun, though!
  21. Experimented some more with P3D the last days (who needs sleep anyway ) but taking screens with Reshade didn´t really work out. Got it fixed yesterday added the L-049 and LOWI into my FS shopping spree and took the old lady straight up to visit LOWI. EDDS, early spring day, weather looks promising. Climbing out. She truly is the queen of the skies. Went back for a sneaky shot of the office. And here we go, into the mountains on descend, ILS approach. First sight of the runway, lined up quite fine. Home stretch. And parked, Betty seing out the passengers. (Had to make up for my landing... flared to early, wasn´t pretty) Was a nice flight. Got to do it in bad weather at night next time, that should be quite fun. Do they do night operations at Innsbruck at all?
  22. Finally got some flying time. Came out of Munich, but weather a bit grim so screenshots don't start until we're quite a way towards the mountains. I really rather like this XP-56 - it's fun to fly, has a great cockpit view, and really feels like it's zipping along. Side on is not its best view, particularly with the wheels down - it really shows its stubbiness. In flight though, and from other angles, I think it's really rather pretty! Somewhere down the line I hope to teach myself how to repaint, and I will definitely get myself a personalised XP-56!
