  1. Combining thousands of hours of development over the course of the TrueEarth Series, we reach our destination of Southern California and therefore completing the west coast USA. Our TrueEarth series represents innovative technology combined with relentless hard work to provide a truly realistic representation of the area. Combining satellite imagery, hand-crafted modelling and extensive research, TrueEarth Southern California gives you a unique experience from the comfort of your home. Pilots of all types love flying in the area thanks to the stunning landscapes, incredible waterfr
  2. A smooth flight at 17,500 ft (and then lower later) from Oceano Co, CA (L52) to French Valley, CA (F70). This is one of the most stunning addons for XP11 to date - the Aerobask Legacy RG with user paint of reno racer N913MP. I effortlessly cruise around 250 knots while still being very fuel efficient. I depart L52 SE, towards Vandenberg AFB, then onto Gaviota VOR to the shoreline of Santa Barbara CA. I continue east towards Ventura, pass the Point Mugu NAS and then east towards Malibu and the Pacific Palisades. I fly by LAX, pass downtown LA, starting a slow descent beyond Santa Ana
  3. More pics than words in this hopefully brief mini review The Legacy is my all time favorite real aircraft (bias), and thus my favorite sim aircraft (bias). I first participated in the old Realair beta for v1 and v2 of the Legacy in FSX and later P3D (bias). I then participated in this Aerobask Legacy beta in XP11 (bias - so you see lots of bias in this review lol). Plane was released a few days ago avail at Org site. I know there's a few people hesitant to get it because of the glass cockpit...but the Avidyne is very well done, and the text is very legible and smooth. I use th
  4. Incredible, looking at the 15 & 138 interchange. Redlands and Riverside farthest away
  5. With skyline KLGB and Orbx Socal i get a error saying klgb not loading correctly and Signal hill is flat. anyone have an idea of a fix? otherwise airport and scenery look fine. Log.txt
  6. Hello, my sim friends. To begin, I have a relatively new Macbook Pro with Catalina OS. With that said, I was VERY excited to purchase and download the Orbx SoCal HD. However, when running X-Plane 11 after selecting the SoCal airport of my choice to begin, it crashes midway through the loading process. Next thing that appears is my computer desktop and asking if I want to relaunch X-Plane. This has been extremely frustrating as I've tried everything, including moving all of my custom scenery files to a backup folder and starting from scratch. Still, the same thing.
  7. I just purchased my first Orbx product. Installed So. California SD into my Orbx library and everything went smoothly. Only problem I have found, is that my (Shortfinal Design's KLAX HD) is showing up, but without the Orbx scenery all the way to San Diego. I attached this photo. Sorry, I am new to forums.

  9. A really quick flight from Bakersfield to San Luis, CA in the always incredible Flysimware Lear 35. Superb paint by Scott Brunner. If you don't own this product yet, you should. PBR exterior, stunning interior and lovely hand flying plus F1 or RXP GTN/GNS options. The best payware bizjet for ESP sim to date. Also flown online at Pilot Edge so I didn't have the best angles to take... but enjoy nonetheless!

  10. Was heading toward Vandenberg AFB, for reasons I won't bore you with, and spotted what looked like an attack of the "random office block syndrome" over towards the coastline. Went to take a look-see and found a bunch of rocket launch sites. Off to Google Earth and Wiki and found out about the missile test program at Vandenberg and the launch sites at Point Arguello. Wasn't aware of any of this so a big thank you to Orbx for going to the trouble to include this all in So-Cal. Not just fun - educational too!
  11. A few from a nice flight in some vintage metal. Liked to livery, too! Beautiful weather and beautiful terrain to fly over.
  12. I continue some short flights in SOCAL. I continue to prepare myself for real flights I plan to make in almost one month, departing from San Diego, as usual. I may flight a C172 or PA28 around California, Nevada or Arizona. Wherever the weather will be good. I flew there several times and Orbx addon's help me get trained in advanced, preparing flights, understanding the field or navigation environment. I have a list of field I never went to. Kern Valley (L05) is part of this. So let's prepare a small navigation from Bakersfield (KBFL). As usual I use a mobile app. to prepare and r
  13. Let's climb into A2A C172 Trainer for a flight to Vegas ! I choose to start from KVCV Victorville and prepare, during the 1 and something hour flight, to get into the Bravo airspace of Vegas. Time to work on the airport diagram of KLAS as well Victorville is a small fied up north Los Angeles and south of Mojave. In the desert. There are hugggggeeeeee runways. One is 15'000 feet long. It's also a famous airplanes graveyard. Victorville, as seen from top view of Prepar3D I check NOTAM's. Actually, Foreflight (the aviation mobile app) check Notam's f
  14. Hi guys. I find myself here after purchasing NA SoCal back in July, and admittedly I did little research other than reviews, ofcourse pre purchase I didn't see a bad review, so I wen't ahead, and shelled out the 50 something dollars gladly thinking it was money well spent, as I mainly fly the region. I like to fly commercial heavies usually, PMDG 47/77.. I run pretty modest settings on my rig, and before hand never had any addon scenery with the exception of LatinVFR KSAN. Normally getting upwards of 40-50 frames with a PMDG product, depending on if I'm on approach, sitting at a gate or what h

  17. So, got myself a new knee, and am now in that "can move around but not really get out" phase so time to fly! Found this nice freeware KC45 the other day, and thought I'd go for a trip around the bay, so out of Edwards AFB and off to Travis but taking the scenic route. Quite a few pix (sorry) and all 4k with all the sliders maxed, so if you've got a big screen they're worth seeing full size. Off we go - heading north and west approaching the coast as the sun goes down Santa Cruz ahead of us Monterey
  18. Still looking for ORBX designed expanded parking slots for KEDW - Edwards. The best place to check ride military airplanes. I've tried one or two after-market user made parking files, but they always create artifacts or other issues. Thank you.
  19. A sunken wheels Issue has been reported after installing LatinVFR's KSAN v2 over FTX SoCal. I recalled that 2 SCA files should be disabled for compatibility after installing FTX KSAN some time ago. From their P3Dv4 root folder these files are in ORBX\FTX_NA\FTX_NA_SCA05_scenery: ADE_FTX_SCA_KSAN.BGL ADE_FTX_SCA_KSAN_CVX.BGL I had renamed these files, as in ADE-FTX-SCA_KSAN.BGL.off -- so I've removed the ".off" and together with the recent KSAN v2 hotfix this corrected the sunken wheels issue.
  20. Finally, finally, finally picked up the A2A Cherokee, and she is a joy to fly! Just a quick jaunt from Agua Dulce to Burbank (Bob Hope).
  21. So please to fly with Orbx South California. These static waves look great on... screen shots. Plane is the Piper from Just Flight.
  22. The autogen view distance is really impressive with Prepar3D v4 despite Orbx SOCAL is still a fps-killer when settings are too high.
  23. Short SoCal FedEx hop from KPSP to KSNA in the ATR 72 -202F.
  24. Early AM flight over the Mohave Desert, Edwards Air Force Base [KEDW] in the distance
  25. Just before dark travels in the KSAN area
