  1. This will not be an unexpected journey (as the livery might suggest), but an uncommon one. Especially for a twin engine plane. From Christchurch... ... we are heading southbound over NZ´s South Island. Near Dunedin this is Mahinerangi Lake, ... ... and over Stewart Island we leave New Zealand. Time to reveal where we are going to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polar_route#Antarctica The problem of this route is illustrated here: TINA (= there is no alternate). Instead, we can see the icy coast of Antarctica. The only airfield around is Wilkins Runway. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wilkins_Runway Along latitude 66°S for hours and hours... ... but in local time we stay at the same hour that we departed in Christchurch: Just after 9 a.m. Even after turning north... ... still the same local time. But you can see UTC has proceeded by 3 hours since the last screenshot. Finally landfall over South Africa. The aeroworx freeware adds a bit of landclass, ... ... but Johannesburg still has room for improvement. And O. R. Tambo International airport is totally disappointing - though it is the most frequented airport of the continent. That´s what a 2006 simulator looks like.
  2. The passengers arrived too early at Milford Sound airfield, ... ... but this gave them the chance to get some more great views of Mitre Peak. Great views are also guaranteed for the pilot here. Enough space for a canyon turn, ... ... and here we go, ... ... following Milford Sound Highway, ... ... that leads us to Homer Tunnel. East of the tunnel the name of the road changes to Te Anau Highway. We just hop over the mountains to Lake Wakatipu, ... ... leaving Glenorchy behind, ... ... before approaching Queenstown soon after. Parked at the right place, and at the right time to spot the stars. And to spot the bars, I suspect.
  3. For my flight to an airport that can handle bigger metal I used a little, quick trainer: The lovely Iris PC-21. Rapidly climbing out of Queenstown... ... along Kawarau river, northbound. Lake Dunstan, ... ... and the central highlands in the evening sun. Near Twizel village one can see interesting manmade features: Windbreaking hedges and some hydroelectric instalment. Unfortunately part of the scenery was covered ... ... which showed to be an even bigger challenge when turning into final at Christchurch. Puh, safe. And here we got it. Christchurch airport, where I will prepare for a loooong flight.
  4. If you are overdone by hiking, bungee jumping, paragliding or jetboat blasting, there still remains one thing to do when you are in Queenstown: Take a little scenic flight. Starting up the Kawarau River... ... and then back south over Frankton. Passing Queenstown CBD, ... ... which is a slight way down from Frankton and the airport, ... ... out to Lake Wakatipu. The calm village of Glenorchy ... ... is the gateway to some movie stages of the Lord of the Rings, ... ... which should be visible from Lake Sylvan quite well. It needs some 10000 ft altitude to cross the southern alps here... ... but finally we drop down to Martyns Bay. Pardon, Martins Bay. Now we descend further down this magnificent coast... ... until a gap to the left. Altitude 1500 gives a little thrill... ... as we enter Milford Sound. The Elephant. The Lion. The airport. No worries, ... ... there is enough parking space next to the colleague. And famous Mitre Peak waits in the background.
  5. Today we took a commercial flight from Wellington... ... over the clouds - which prevented me from making more shots in the early phase of the trip. Suddenly the weather changed, ... ... and the view got better, just to show Hayes Lake, ... ... and the outskirts of Queenstown. May the adventure begin!
  6. One of the most iconic of all "little" aircraft - A2A have brought their J3 Piper Cub up to date for P3Dv4. Here we are on a trip from Picton to (you guessed it ...) Milford Sound: Heidi MkII does PBR!! Adam.
  7. Hello Something strange is happening in my NZ scenery (south Island) and airports that I have bought. The last scenery I have automatically installed is the one from Iceland (demo) Here is my scenery hierarchy. As you can see, all has been installed automatically. Then, I went to NZQN airport and see what I get (It is the same for NZFM) So can you help me having the airport properly set ? Thank you
  8. Hello, I bought New Zealand South Island, plus Queenstown today, but I'm having some problems installing it correctly. When I load the airport I see a lot of blacked out people and buildings, along with some elevation issues. I do run FTX Vector, so that's my usual first check for this, but NZQN isn't showing as a problem there. I tried to search on these forums for an answer, and I read that it's best to install the island scenery before the airport, so I tried uninstalling everything related to New Zealand, and reinstalling first the South Island, loading the sim, then installing Queenstown, but the problem is still there. I am using P3D 4.2, and will be happy to supply any further information should it be needed. Thanks for any help you can provide, Dan

  10. Rainy weather in Queenstown, so I decided to move away from the South. As the distance to Queenstown is a bit longer, a slighty more spacious plane needed to be installed. Escaped from the rain... ... but not clear of the clouds yet. OK, looks clear now... ... but not for long ;-(. At least, Christchurch is big enough and equipped with electric helpers to find the runway!
  11. After installing the Carenado planes into p3dv4 I went on to another of my favourite GAs - unfortunately without a p3d installer. Added all the liveries, and - voila: Good that this is just the taxiway... The beauty of Milford Sound... ... and the west coast. Entering Doubtful Sound in something more exclusive than a cruiseship... ... and climbing over the rocks... ... to Lake Manapouri. This is where someone filmed the Anduin River... ... and Lothlorien. Mavora Lake... ... and Lake Wakatipu. Queenstown ahead. VFR flying at its finest... ... unfortunately I could not turn the CRS needle. This may be the only p3d-deficit that occurs - does anybody have better experience with this bird? At least I could bring her down safely...
  12. Getting ready in Martins Lodge for the test flight in my trusty C185, in a slightly misplaced, but beloved livery. There are some free seats left in my plane, if you like? And the views are going to be fine after this unspectacular takeoff. An overview of Martins Bay... ... and the adjacent Big Bay, ... ... before going down the coast... ... and into Milford Sound. I was surprised not to see lots of statics after parking in NZMF, as it came straight out of the box. I mean straight out of the wire (we have to adapt our language to these modern times). But surely this can be changed in the control panel. And a remote airfield like this can get all details, even on my system. BTW, the Mitchellwing U2 also works fully in p3dv4.
  13. I did not use a totally appropriate livery to start out of Queenstown today... and at the end of the flight I have also learned that it was not even a totally appropriate plane ... Climbing southbound over Lake Wakatipu... ... and enjoying a look back over the city. Mt. Aspiring NP from above... ... and a final view to the Lake, ... ... before I crossed the ridge and went down over Hollyford River... ... towards Martyns Bay. Oh no, it is still Martins Bay! Perhaps it is easier to land on the beach here... ... but I called for "runway" 20... ... where the Caravan seems a bit, say, optimistic. Good that this is not a real flight. Made it. Time to relax at Martins Lodge, with a well-deserved glass of cold white!
  14. Not only Cook Strait will be crossed in this flight, this is also my first IFR flight in p3d with PRO-ATC/X support, and my first flight with the Majestic Dash 8-Q400 in this simulator. Moreless totally experimental today. Boarding in Wellington was with no trouble (and no GSX, yet...). But what is this AI pilot doing? Can´t he see my takeoff release from the ATC above?? OK, we´re just simming. So the steel was unharmed and I could climb towards the South Island. No Orbx scenery here, but the blue was just too impressing for me (finally I got a nice sky color). Christchurch. The HD moon textures from FSX work well. Weather is getting somehow tricky whilst descending into Queenstown, ... ... and I had to circle down. Me no like that visibility! Resulted in an Albatros-like landing... ... but no one was able to complain after the flight!
  15. Its been a while, was doing a flight around NZ, so many pretty places to see, thought I would share a couple
  16. NZ14 on the first leg of the trip to LAX in the new toy. At the gate in Christchurch Aotearoa living up to its name. Aoraki poking above the tops Cumulogranite below I'm hoping the thing will grow on me. I've always thought the -200 was prettier. The long hump on this looks wrong. Still, there is always the freighter.
  17. The latest SP... sadly, the mods are largely cosmetic as far as I can tell. Wake me around v1.5. Still, it looks nice outside: Somewhere near Blenheim A few generations apart:
  18. Another beauty updated for P3Dv4 - the Aerosoft Twin Otter - seen here in the Mount Cook area of NZSI. Adam.
  19. I had things real good in P3D 2.5 but now in 3.4 these odd scenery things are happening I've done no different with the scenery library order. Used FTX Central 3 to do the installs. NZ North Island FSS0522883
  20. Just reinstalled P3D v3 on new SSD and updated to FTX central 3, completed all the updates, but notice a few issues with NZQN and NZWN so far, any help greatly appreciated (see images below) Have run "Automatic Configuration and applied, also ticked "I have FTX Australia installed" Also installed: FTX Global Base, FTX Global openLC Europe, FTX Global Vector Europe England, Oceania Australia, NZNI, NZSI
  21. I have been having elevation issues at both NZMF and NZQN after installing the NZSI update this morning. I have tried to fix by running the Vector elevation tool. NZMF NZQN Please advise, Thanks, Greg
  22. I've always entered the screen competitions at NZFF (http://nzff.org/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=26925&start=20) - and it's my only option these days, as I can't enter the ORBX one. This month, however, I'm having real difficulty choosing my entry - so wondered if anyone ORBX'ers would care to cast their vote! Unlike ORBX, the NZFF comps have themes: this month, we have "It's a jungle out there!!!". 01: My initial entry: Blenheim in the mist: 02: Another "oldie" - the Typhoon over North Island somewhere: 03: The same Typhoon testing the waters at NZMF: ORBX does jungle so beautifully in NZNI/NZSI. A lot of variety in foliage - and seamlessly placed. All comments and suggestions greatly appreciated!! Adam.
  23. Queenstown to Invercargill Enjoy and thanks for looking! P3DV3 - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  24. We took a regular Star Alliance connection to return northwards from Ryans Creek / Stewart Island, ... ... climbing over Oban (no, we did not get to Scotland that fast), ... ... and crossing the Aluminium smelter at the southern tip of South Island, near Invercargill. Hot summer does not need to be a dry summer here in the roaring fourties. Dunedin, the hub of the south. Our baggage was checked through into the mother company, ANZ. Starting engine two. You can see the plane was so full I had to sit in the cockpit. Sheep land. Hills, dramatic rivers, and the coastline of South Island guide us northwards... ... until we descend over the Marlborough Sounds... ... into the busy city of Wellington.
