  1. Developer Andreas Hegi continues his journey across the Pacific Northwest with his latest Cascades scenery - Concrete Municipal Airport! Reinvigorating this classic Orbx destination, 3W5 is located between Orcas Island, Anacortes and Darrington in Skagit County, perfect for short hops exploring the jaw-dropping scenery of this corner of Washington State. Building upon the standards set with his first two airfields for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Andreas has completely reworked Concrete from the original ESP release. New ultra-high-definition artwork, comprehensive PBR, new modelli
  2. Hot on the heels of his highly popular Orcas Island, developer Andreas Hegi brings us the the next charming airfield in his Pacific Northwest series for Microsoft Flight Simulator - Darrington Municipal Airport! Located in the heart of the North Cascade Mountains in Washington State, Darrington is located a short hop from other well-known small-field destinations such as Orcas, Anacortes and Concrete. Serving Snohomish County and dwarfed by the shadow of the mighty Whitehorse Mountain, this airfield is set in the heart of picturesque Darrington village on the confluence of two riv
  3. After the sensational impressions I had in OLC Africa I want to re-visit another OLC region. So I queued up on an early morning in Vancouver... ... and finally managed to take off. Just some sights on the way south: Mt. Rainier (plus a little traffic), ... ... the Grand Canyon. In pure OLC - I need to reinstall Maurizio Giorgi´s phenomenal OZx freeware here. Leaving the US near Las Cruzes at the Rio Grande. Mexico City in the haze. The Popocatepetl. At the gulf of Tehuantepec we r
  4. I love these tiny details added to sceneries, like here in Squamish. I also like runways looking short and narrow like these. As long as you can get your intended plane up into the air. From Squamish it is only a 10-minute-flight to Vancouver. A city that could also deserve a "cityscape light". And it already has an "airport heavy". With possible connections to - everywhere.
  5. The traveller, let us call him Martyn, arrived with all his luggage on time at Nanaimo Water Harbour. And his pilot was kind enough to make a little round over the harbour after takeoff. Just a short hop over the strait brings them to Pender Harbour. All these piers down there! Magnificient fjords... ... and mountains. The traveller and his pilot descend... ... into Squamish... ... for a little rest at the airfield. Thanks to the traveller´s brother for taking all these pictures
  6. This flight out of Concrete would take a lot of time, if you´d land at every Orbx airport in this region. So I just passed Israel´s Farm ... ... looked back at the Skagit river valley, ... ... crossed the Andeavor refinery, ... ... to Anacortes... ... and Friday Harbour. That island alone has airfields for many hours of pleasure! But I crossed the channel over to Victoria, ... ... virtually visited Holger Sandmann, ... ... and went up to Nanaimo, ... ...
  7. Back on tracks of the past in FSX, from the Inland Empire to western Washington. That means boarding in Felts, ... ... a little turn over Spokane, ... ... and waving to our friends in Colbert. Down Spokane River to where it meets the Columbia. Grand Coulee Dam, ... ... Steamboat Rock, ... ... and Dry Falls are worth a little detour. Chelan Mun. Do you remember these two FSX missions starting here? The valley to the left is where we all picked up the "missing coworker". In much worse scenery
  8. I have just purchased and installed the NA Pacific Northwest regional sceanary pack for fsx and mostly all is fine. However one thing remains to be fixed. I am getting black 'placeholder' trees in some areas that I assume are due to a missing or misnamed texture. This only occurs in the PNW area. No warning is issued by FSX about texture issues. I have run the Orbx verify option and that shows no issues. No other addons have been installed. I attach a screen shot below that shows the problem. Can anyone suggest where I might look to solve this?
  9. Via the latest added goodie of ferries, terminals and other shipping to the PNW area, life is even come more to realisme. Thanks to 'Larry_R' upgraded scenery project, flying is become more interactive with these nautical extra features. My first flight in a Goose-flyboat is over Nanaimo - CAC8 and a sea-landing nearby a large freighter:
  10. Hi guys, With the settings I have in p3Dv5 - 30fps in VC / 30 fps outside in 4K with all Heavy a ** addons - Minor tweaks finally. I even posted on Avsim my 2nd epic thread for P3Dv5 I am finally in Orbx Heaven here - OMG my sceneries look awesome. OMG!!!!! Enjoy the shots - Flying low, hard and fast - 3000 ft, at 360 knts. Windows 10 2004 is used - it is better VRAM management 1) Disable HT and No Affinity Mask - I tried them all. Let P3Dv5 do its thing. This one is system dependent - Try it with on too. I removed Affinity mask
  11. Here I continue my exploration of P3D v5. S93: 2W3:
  12. After a long time installing the new version and some add-ons, my first impressions (after flying for 10 minutes on P3D v5) are: (i) it runs much smoother and with better FPS than v4 (ii) the atmosphere and the clouds are amazing (iii) everything looks better and "feels" more real. I was able to set many sliders to the right, and even then I got more than 60 fps above PNW. I will test it further, with other planes, in other locations, etc. This is my first screenshot with the new sim:
  13. Thank you, Orbx for incredible TrueEarth HD platform for X-Plane!!! Best sim for me now.
  14. Hi there. I'm new to flight sims and have purchased the OrbX Pacific Northwest package and am trying to get it working in P3D v 4.5. I installed it using OrbX central and it seems to show up in the 'scenery options' in the main p3d screen but I'm not seeing the photorealistic (or even particularly nice) landscapes etc. I read through the installation guide and changed my settings (I think) to the recommended ones but no joy. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong but for the life of me can't figure out what. Any help would be appreciated. Image of the landscape around the Seattle area attach
  15. While working from home I'm able to do some flying on a 3rd computer monitor. As my main focus is on work (on my other 2 monitors), I mainly stick to crusing along coasts to keep navigation easy. Took off from Sekiu in NW Washington state, flew NW, around the tip, then headed south along the coast. Ozette Lake is off to the left... P3Dv4.5 A2A T-6 Texan
  16. All my ORBX products work perfectly, EXCEPT Pacific Northwest north of Seattle. The textures become very blurry when making even a short flight. This occurs nowhere else in my ORBX world I own many of the PNW airports north of Seattle and wonder if too many scenery add-ons are too much for my high-end Jetline Systems rig. Very frustrating Any suggestions?
  17. a visit over Nanaimo, as one of the several freeware made seabases for Orbx-PNW and at the end landing in front of the city of Nanaimo in a yellow Quest Kodiak:
  18. Yesterday I did this same flight on XP11. Tried it today on P3D to feel the pros and cons. After the flight, my first impressions are: 1) The airports are very much the same at either platform, all very beautiful and detailed. 2) I feel that TE Washington is light-years ahead from PNW/P3D. The difference between both is stunning. Even though I love ORBX PNW/P3D, IMO TE Washington provides the most realistic views I have ever seen. 3) For me, in P3D the weather representation is still better than in XP11 (including seasons, rain, snow and better turbulence effects) - thi
  19. Inspired by the recent excellent post from our colleague @carlosqr, I decided to also go back to the lovely Walter Sutton airfield. I agree with him - it is really a quite special place to fly!
  20. Haven't flown the Comanche in quite some time, so I changed the oil and had a go. Hell, even landed her without floating down 3/4 of the runway.
