  1. Yesterday I was leaving Valdez towards a bigger airport, being able to catch an overseas flight, and I chose a properly coloured plane, ... ... but how could I know that the original yellow flash was already around there?
  2. As you know me, I always check recent purchases with "low&slow" tools. Some great sights in Valdez, indeed. And changing to yellow...
  3. Time for boarding, you can easily read where. And here is the solution to my last "where am I" quiz, I was long discussing this with our friend @Neptune6: PAGS Gustavus beyond. Mt. Fairweather ... ... and the complete Glacier Bay NP. And finally approaching Valdez, another recent purchase of mine.
  4. ... after using the current Alabeo discount on FSS I had to do this test...
  5. For some reason, PAVD in my P3Dv4 is incredibly dark/contrasty ... but makes for very dramatic captures!! Adam.
  6. Overflying Valdez airport PAVD in Piper Pacer before landing:
  7. I currently fly around in the gorgeous Aerofly FS2 sceneries, in particular the recent Orbx added area LOWI & NCGX but what I cuurently miss is the HiFi representation of clouds and sky textures when I fly via the FS FSX SE and P3D. See in follow shots how good they can be produced. I hope that in the future I can admire these textures also in Aerofly FS2. A job for 3rd parties like REX and AS ?
  8. Blue Wave Energy Partners (BWEP) is an excellent freeware from RTMM and the first two parts have now been released. I took my first flight along the Trans Alaska Pipeline in a Cessna 172 the other night. Very impressive it was too. However after reading the BWEP page on RTMM and seeing some shots from Oldendirt I realised that a chopper would be the best way to view the pipeline, or so I thought. Then along came Gerold and suggested the paramotor. 1. Got the Gopro set up and a full tank of fuel so lets go. 2. The Valdez Terminal, a lot of extras added in the RTMM package. 3. A close up of one of the control towers. 4. A view down Port Valdez, looks like a great day for flying. 5. Dayville Road and the end of the public road. 6. First view of the pipe line. 7. Approaching a small refinery. 8. 9. Back into the forest, will have to keep a lookout for bears. 10. Passing Robe Lake. 11. Yes that is the pipeline in the distance up the mountain side. 12. Crossing one of the streams that flows into the Lowe River. 13. A pump house just before the climb up the Chugach Mountains. 14. What do you think? 15. Made it. The Paramotor is the ideal way of flying along the Pipeline, great suggestion Gerold. Here is a link to the RTMM BWEP page for those that may be interested. http://return.mistymoorings.com/bwep/
  9. I thought it would be quite easy to fly from Valdez to the mouth of the Copper River at Klutina Lake where Klutina Outfitteres is located. 1. As I had to climb to about 8000ft to safely get over the mountain I chose a very powerful aircraft. 2. Simple, follow the Valdez Glacier and then take the second glacier on the right. 3. Pity I never thought about the clouds though. 4. All I had to do here was head NNE and follow the Tonsina Glacier. 5. Without realising I had turned ESE, the moon should have been a give away. 7. So here we are 12 miles from where we should be and still heading the wrong way. 6. Below is the Oil Pipeline, the Richardson Hwy and K55 Thompson Pass airstrip. Now I know where I am. 7a. Visited here the other day following the pipe line, as you can see the weather was much better then. 8. So now headed back to where I want to be and if my calculations are right we should drop in over the Klutina River. 9. That worked out as planned so now we have to fly up Lake Klutina to Outfitterers 10. Some magnificent mountains and valleys on the way. 11. Here we are at the mouth of the Copper River and a quick pass over the airstrip to suss it out as I have never flown here before. 12. Turning to line up on 08. With the short strip I am glad I chose the A22. 13. Nice looking set up here, looking forwards to some great fishing. 14, A very cosy hangar out of the driving rain. 15. Now all we need is for the rain to stop. 16. Hope they have the fire going in the lodge. A much longer flight than I planned it to be. Great scenery especially at Outfiterers but don't go booking a room for your next fishing trip as it is entirely ficticious, which is a great shame.
  10. A screenshotter's paradise for sure. Props to Magnus and Philip for this beauty Prepar3D 3.4.9, PTA shader mod, REX Soft Clouds, Navids Sky Set, HDEv2 Cirrus clouds - MSI GT73VR GRF Titan Pro laptop (i7 CPU, GTX1080 GPU, Win 10-64). All P3D sliders maxxed.
  11. My 1st flight with the newly purchased PAVD scenery in FSX-SE . . . JMAAL3 departure and on to PAYA (Yakutat) in the Turbine Duke V2 with GTN750 (x2) at dawn on 04-12-2016 with AS16 and ASCA. Can't get enough of it . . .
  12. Another shot taken just after take off from Valdez Pioneer. An awesome scenery. Incidentally, the DA20 Katana is a wonderful aircraft for exploring Orbx sceneries. It can fly really slowly, can land on a sixpence and has the best visibility from a cockpit I have experienced! BTW, just look at those clouds.
  13. This has got to be one of my favourite sceneries form the guys so far. A shame you can't see it for the clouds!
  14. Completely in love with this PAVD scenery. Wanted to show the contrast between two seasons. The colours in summer are incredible. Think I might forget cross country for a while and just practice circuits here!
  15. PAVD Valdez Pioneer Field
  16. I found some time for flying today (damn job! ) and took a SU-33 over the mountains from Valdez to Yakutat Enjoy and thanks for looking! FSX - DX10 - Shade - ASN Weather Cheers Karsten
  17. Just a quick update now that I have my 32" 4K monitor setup. Here's the details on the monitor, a very impressive bit of kit that can run at native 3840x2160 (4K) resolution at 60Hz using Nvidia G-Sync - http://www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/predator-model/UM.JX1EE.001 Strangely enough, I have almost zero impact on FPS when running P3D 3.4.9 all sliders maxed at 4K versus 1080p. I wanted to return to Valdez to re-create the 1080p screenshots I've been using for my desktop background in glorious 4K, so here they are: Remember, these images are at 3840x2160 resolution so to see them and save them at full resolution, click on each one then click on the "Full Size" link on the bottom left of the screenshot. Once we launch the new OrbxDirect website I hope to start a blog with regular updates which will journal screenshots and videos from around the Orbx world and also share some videos of my race car antics around Europe. Stay tuned.
  18. I rarely post screenshots, I much prefer to look at what our community is doing. Just bought this monster laptop; http://www.notebookreview.com/notebookreview/msi-gt73vr-titan-pro-review-beautiful-beast/ But I couldn't resist this shot at Valdez - straight V key. I am running Prepar3D 3.4.9 with the PTA shader mod, REX Soft Clouds, Navids Sky Set and HDEv2 Cirrus clouds on an MSI GT73VR GRF Titan Pro laptop (i7 CPU, GTX1080 GPU, Win 10-64). All P3D sliders are maxxed.
  19. From my post about some new rides - So I thought . . . A lively little so-and-so, but great fun. And I actually landed ok'ish without any artifical aids (i.e. slew mode), so easier than some of the other things I've acquired recently. And I think it looks right at home here!
