  1. So, BUR is good, and the surrounding scenery looks great so far! I am however having some pretty profound issues with VNY that don't seem to have been reported by anyone else. I do not have any conflicting VNY scenery. Below is a screenshot when I search my P3D folder for VNY references: I have tried Vector AEC, tried disabling the APB file, the VNY height File, and the SCA scenery. For kicks, I also tried disabling the BUR package VNY files and leaving the SCA scenery intact which produced even worse elevation results. I'm at a bit of a loss on this one. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi all, The past month has been pretty rough, hope everyone is staying safe! Since we're all cooped up indoors and playing flight sims, I thought I'd take some time to finish up the Californian Channel Islands that never made it into the first version of Santa Barbara, so that you all have somewhere new to explore This update adds over 700 square kilometers of new coverage to KSBA, more than doubling the original coverage area. It also adds 3 lite airstrips for you to land at. These airstrips are super fun and challenging to fly into, and are a nice short flight away from KSBA. Alternatively, you can load your flight at CA97 Cristy Airstrip, but the other two, you'll have to go and find them! This will be released in the next couple of days. For all that have purchased KSBA already, hope this gives you something new and interesting to explore! For those that haven't, KSBA is still on discount until the 12th April, so make sure you don't miss out and pick up a copy here: orbxdirect.com/product/ksba The update will be free for all customers, so as long as you have the product you'll be able to get it COVERAGE MAP SCREENSHOTS Cheers, Misha
  3. Having just purchased North & South California in the sale I have been taking many different flights all over the place to explore all the new locations and airports. Here are a few from a beautiful VFR fight from KSBD to KMHV skirting along the mountains surrounding greater LA then hopping over and across the arid expanse of the Mojave passing Palmdale and Lancaster along the way. desert in the Real Air Spitfire Mk.XIV. Looking out over the wing towards Fontana claiming out of KSBD A couple of shots skirting round the clouds over the Angeles National Forrest.... I think I can almost see Matt Farah carving up the highway down there filming a TST video. A nice gentle decent over the beginnings of the Mojave Desert with Palmdale just coming into sight before lining up for the Visual 30 into KMHV.
  4. I’ve tried to uninstall and reinstall twice and I’m still having issues. The reinstall fixed the issue I was having in the FTX control panel where it wouldn’t let me choose “without static aircraft.” But the issue I’m still having is it won’t let me click the box to use “FTX Southern California Mode.” I check the box, but every time I open the control panel, the box remains unchecked. And I’m guessing as a result, I’m getting duplicate runway/taxiway signs on the ground. Sorry if this is a repeat post, but I can find a fix other than a reinstall.
  5. Getting ready at Sonny Bono Airport for a trip to the coast, once again with AS16 real weather - and hoping for californian sun... This is what I call a blurry VC, as already reported I have this impression since I changed from 4.1 to 4.3. I must try to change some settings (which I did not change actively)... At least we can get her in the air and leave Palm Springs with nice views. Passing the San Gabriel mountains... ... before entering thick overcast on descend. Again. These coastal clouds are a pain! While I was carefully descending, ATC announced a change of runway, just to increase my stress level a bit. I was not even able to capture a shot of the milk outside - just in the final seconds the runway came into view: Full brakes... ... and here we are, ready for some crab dinner at Cannery Road. But where is the sunshine?
  6. ... for a little lift from Monterey... ... over San Francisco Bay... ... to Half Moon Bay. Please proceed to the terminal. Now what should I do: Stay for a coffee or take the car?
  7. Up the coast from foggy San Diego (I had to cheat with the weather after takeoff ) ... ... over Carlsbad, ... ... and climbing into the San Jacinto mountains. Here we roll down into Palm Springs. I have the impression that my settings (especially the VC) got a bit blurry with the change to p3d 4.3 - though the setting is still on 4096. Anyone got an idea to modify the sharpness (be it in p3d itself or in nvidia)?
  8. Ready to move further westwards, to discover some of the orbx airports I have purchased since my last virtual west coast stay. This is the plane we are going to use, seen from the coffee bar in the United lounge at Houston terminal E: Cockpit preparations. Hurray! Just compare the registration of the PMDG bird with the real one above. We are serious simmers, aren´t we? A view over Houston, from the international airport to CBD. Texas in green. The cockpit in nice. Arizona in brown. Imperial Dunes, while already descending. The Gulf of California to the left... ... and the Pacific ahead, at the same time. Here you can see the use of freshwater in California. And here you can see... the visibility during final approach. A pleasure to all pilots... There is no vertical guidance on this approach, and the clouds just opened seconds before landing. So I was waytoohigh and had to pull the brakes... Made it. Then overheated the brakes, which caused blocking... so there is no gate screenie today.
  9. Hello, guys! Today was a flight to the beautiful places around the Kern Valley...
  10. Hello everyone. Today in Big Bear City Airport (L35)...
  11. Another marvel sceney to discover in California not far from the coast of LA: Back to my plane for returning to mainland
  12. Just a few snaps over Riverside and San Bernardino area enroute from AJO to VGT Nick
  13. Little VFR under the cover around Long Beach and Orange County. Nick
  14. So, about a year ago in early 2017 I took a screenshot of the San Diego skyline at night (as viewed from Coronado island) in P3Dv3.4 with SCA (no KSAN yet) and the buildings were gorgeous (very close to RW even -- see 1st pic below). Now, a year later, with P3Dv4.x, the buildings are not as dramatically lit as they were previously (see second pic, below). I've tried numerous various different settings in P3D and FTX Central (and even different times of the evening and days of the week), but have been unsuccessful in getting the beautiful lighting back. What gives?
  15. West to east was done in the P-51. East to west was started in the C172, had a couple of legs done in the C182, but mostly by Comanche, hopping via freeware airports. This is the last leg: Morongo Resort Shut down on Santa Catalina Island My next mission is up the west coast, via Orbx airports of course.
  16. Little getaway to the mountains of Socal. Santa Barbara (SBA) to Big Bear (L35). Enjoy!
  17. So, off to test my theory about flying blind in the C-130. Heading off from KPSP - "ain't got no distractions, can't hear no buzzers and bells" (think "Pinball Wizard"). Never knew what most of that stuff did, anyway <grin> I've turned round now, and going to head up the valley If you view this full size and zoom in you'll see the dinos just down below the tail Up past San Bernadino Across the hills and coming in over Anaheim And coming in now to Long Beach (KLGB) Not sure what's happened to my textures around here And down OK, I cheated a bit at the end and overran a bit, then slewed back, but all in all I was happy with that. I have Little Nav Map running on a secondary 19" monitor and that gives me speeds, altitude etc and I can get away with that, so I feel I've got my Herc back!
  18. Short little hop to the hills for some weekend outdoor time. Santa Barbara, CA to Kern Valley, CA
  19. LAX to Narita for an Xmas arrival: Leaving the basin Leaving the mainland for the loooong haul across the water. Just south of KMRY. Water, obviously Clouds (and more water) Chasing the sun. Sunset. It was there right up until top of descent. By the time I'd lost 7 miles it was gone, and visibility was down to 3 miles. Did this once in the MD-11. One day I might actually fly back. Next up on this trip is Singapore on SQ11. Soooo nice to not have to consider minor irritants like VAS after virtual 12 hours. Merry Xmas all.
  20. Left Oceano for a few practice instrument approaches into Santa Barbara runway 7 with a circle to land on 15R to finish it off. Enjoy
  21. Little one hour jaunt from Torrance (KTOA) to Palm Springs (KPSP). Can't do that in a car. Enjoy! Nick
  22. Captured in natural habitats thanks to orbx.
  23. The popular "Coastal" transition at 500ft, to the "Channel" transition at 800ft over the bay, then back over the top of SAN in the "Taxiway Delta" Transition at 1500ft. Enjoy!
  24. Had a strange craving to take a 5hr jaunt down to Baja California in a Cessna. Carlsbad McClellan-Palomar (KCRQ) to Loreto (MMLT) Enjoy!
