  1. Hi Sorry posted in wrong forum, but while I have your attention... Can we please get a proper representation of the San Francisco & Oakland Bay Bridges? No less than the one shown in your advertising photo (uploaded). The bridge shipped in v1.0 looks nothing like it (also uploaded). I have tried posting in the "Bug Fix" forum and have gotten nowhere. I'm hoping this post might get some attention so we can have a fix like the swift recent v1.1 So Cal scenery update to fix KSAN.
  2. The perfect gateway to Yosemite’s impressive national parks. KFAT Fresno Yosemite International Airport will provide you with the opportunity to connect quickly to multiple destinations and soar above the famed forest of Yosemite. Featuring an impressive level of quality, Fresno Yosemite International Airport is the perfect place to experience a variety of piloting opportunities. Take a flight from the airport and fly over the famous Airways Golf Club that sits just north of the dual-runway airport, or take on a helicopter tours around the city. The airport
  3. One of the advertized purpose of TrueEarth Norcal is [...] You could spend days exploring and still find uniqueness throughout [...]. GOAL ACHIEVED ! I took off from San Carlos and flew randomly just looking out. And the magic of flight simulation happened. I (re)discovered area I flew already but never saw like this.
  4. Hi, I just saw these two peaks flying southwest from KSQL in the SF Bay Area. I did my best to get accurate coordinates in the last photo so these anomalies could be ironed out. (so to speak) They were not there before I installed Orbx Nor Cal yesterday. Thanks and kind regards.
  5. Hello All, I've recently narrowed this down to a confliction between my Orbx Products. Owned Orbx Products Orbx Global base Orbx Vectors Orbx NA OpenLC Orbx NorCAl Orbx Store Order Numbers: 5cd2520b68335 | 5ccfa5ebcf56c ---- *****I do not have any other scenery products installed other than Orbx**** I'm sure this has happened to some of you with high mesh resolution settings. When a user flies over a runway with a "cliff" or sharp terrain changes on final, and at or slightly below the glide slope with
  6. Let's continue these short hops to be as-real-as-it-gts on Califonia. These flights on Prepar3D are real trainer for me. I can practise Foreflight mobile app on my iPad. In France, I use Skydemon, so because I plan next month to be in California, I need to be current with Foreflight. And as I'm not using anymore paper chart, I had to be efficient. Thanks to Orbx, I choose to depart from Monterey (KMRY) and FBO Monterey Jet Center FBO. My plan is to fly along the coast and below the class Bravo airspace. To do so, let's use the FLY chart on the San Francisco TAC (Terminal Area Chart
  7. Today some pics from a flight "for" Delta (DAL791) going from San Francisco to Seattle in the new Airbus A319. Finally the clouds were gone a bit and one could take some peeks at the terrain. Sadly i cannot comment because i simply dont know the place really. I still love to fly on the US wes coast with orbx stuff, its always amazing (if the weather plays around)
  8. Flying in the San Francisco bay and enjoying the autogen
  9. Absolutely no reason for this 'plane to be anywhere around here. I was messing around but was really take with the scenery around here which is just out from 2O3 Angwin-Parrett Field which is well worth a visit.
  10. So after much cursing and messing around, I'm beginning to get v4 working and looking how I want it. Got the payware PTA on there, and after a bunch of not very productive attempts at my own setup I found and tried out the thopat preset. A couple of minor tweaks to suit my own particular taste and now it's beginning to be fun. These are from a test run out of the default Angwin Parrett Field in NorCal. Haven't got Active Sky or Rex or any other textures/weather yet. Sliders maxxed, all 4k, default texture_thingy=8. Don't want to upgrade my current PC with a new graphics card yet but I'll proba
  11. Have just installed my Pilot's GU NG and they mentioned Mount Shasta as being a place to visit, so off I went. Started out from Scott Valley (A30) and have now discovered yet another great big area to explore! Settings are end of September, ASN live weather, 4k images, PTA and all sliders maxed. Nice little airfield to start out from Just starting down the runway and spotted the dog walker. Sure I've seen them before (at the delightfully named Funny Farm) Pulling away from the strip Seems a lovely l
  12. Hi- I'm a huge Orbx fan, and own a great many of their very fine products. I recently noted a possible VAS issue when flying from KSMF (Sacramento CA) to KPSP (Palm Springs CA) with both NorCal and SoCal products installed and active. My free happened about 98 NM from KSMF Sacramento. Does anyone know if this could be a possible issue when transitioning between the two? I am now running Orbx Direct FTX Central 3 with all updates. I don't think this is a tech support question... but if it is, I apologize. Appreciate any comments.
  13. I am having problems getting Global and NorCal working. I’ve installed and uninstalled them both several time following the FAQ Forms posts instructions carefully. And I can’t seem to solve it. Things appear to work in FTX Central in that I can apply the region or Global but when I load the sim everything comes out default. I’ve made sure to update the Orbx Libraries and I downloaded the most recent installers from The Flight Sim Store. I amusing FSX:SE. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Nicolas Order #FSS0351328 Order #FSS0408830
  14. FTX NorCal O37 many cars suspended in air scattered around various spots. Fuel tank suspended in mid air. gravity effect starting at this fuel tank and access road. no brakes applied, throttle at zero, plane will roll all the way off the airport because of downhill slope?
  15. I hope this is the correct place to ask this. There is a section of fence on the approach end of runway 28L at Hayward Executive Airport (KHWD). I would like to know if there is any way to fix this issue. The only reason I care so much is this is my home base and I start and end many IFR flights on 28L. I'm running: - P3D V3.1 (had the same issue with V3.0) - Orbx Northern California region - FSUIPC - A few A2A aircraft - Hawaii photo-real scenery
  16. The Mighty Dash kicks off irregularly unscheduled service between two recent Orbx masterpieces. Best, Marshall
  17. Viewer request tutorial on doing an RNAV approach. Also with bonus segment on using Cat And Duck Method. Flightbeam KSFO and Orbx NorCal. Best, Marshall https://youtu.be/5ktC1w1ZbdY
  18. Tasty NorCal terrain. Residents running for cover. They're fleeing the spinning, falling, twisting, turning Mighty Dash. Ahhh, but they need not fear, because we are armed with knowledge that will save them from chunks of wreckage in the ole attic. Attempting here to translate the American Airlines unusual attitude training sessions (Warren Vanderburgh, YouTube) into the Dash cockpit, as well as using my own experience in the sim. Some of it may match RW. Most of it seems to work in the sim. Still, I'd love some additional feedback on the training that RW Q400-jockeys g
  19. Foggy SF Bay goodness, and a little tutorial for anyone trying to crack the code to smoothly landing The Mighty Dash. Best, Marshall
  20. Something for scenery-lovers as well as Majestic geeks alike: Testing out, in a quick KMRY-KSFO NorCal run, a happy discovery on Page 127 of Majestic's System Tutorial. Essentially it seamlessly blends an ILS into FMS data to yield an LNAV/VNAV "Pink Needles ILS" approach. Here's the citation: The VNAV function has a special provision in order to enable flying the approaches in a coupled mode. What this means, is that it is possible for the FMS to combine ***all the navigation information available (IRS/GPS, and the ILS inputs), to generate and automatically fly
  21. Great learning flight for me. KSFO-KMRY, with a full ILS approach, including procedure turn, on arrival. Bunch of mistakes. And mistakes corrected. And hand-flying. Screwed up on departure. Fixed it. Then the FMS did something weird on arrival. Not being a Child of The Magenta Line (Seriously, watch the AAL training video of that title on YouTube), I dropped down a level of automation and dealt with it. Good hand-flying workout and HUD use. The new Dash Pro really flies well! ---NOTE--- Forgot to say when talking in the video about
  22. Driving into work for another day on the job... Jeez...there's always somebody with a better set of wheels than yourself !!! OK, we got a shout...suspicious cargo boat just docked down town...let's roll... Always feels a bit James Bond this bit... Wow... this little bird is quick to climb... Suspect Vessel in sight Nothing suspicious to report here base...over# Might as well park up and eat my sandwiches...oh well...another boring day at the office!!!
  23. Some pics from two flights with the 222B - both times checking out the helicopter landing pads included in the sceneries The first set taken at and around Bathurst The second set taken at and around Redding More or less cropped Cheers Mallard
  24. After the -32 series pics in the "Western visitor" set I chose the -73 for some air hauling between Palm Springs and Redding Passing over Yosemite National Park So sue me - I'm taking the scenic route past Lake Tahoe Redding in sight If the Air Force One can land there, then I can as well Cropped DX10s Cheers Mallard
