Back into the new world

Recommended Posts

After inspecting the last Norway purchases I now have to test all my recent North America ones. Which includes December sale, seems I haven´t been flying there for a while... So I took a United flight bringing me into LAX as a starting point.

 

Closing in to the big city area I was a bit confused by these bigger yellow areas all around. I think I had also seen texture mismatches around KEDW before. The second shot (near Santa Monica) shows the same phenomenon. I´ll check this later with a less demanding plane... (and also a bit lower & slower).

Turning into final over the Pacific...

... and getting the coast as well in sight as KLAX´s 4 runways.

We´re going for the 07R.

Touchdown. Followed by the OOM warning chime. But at least I could complete the flight...:)

And now we head for some smaller planes for VFR flying...

Great flight Gerold, too bad on the OOM but you got to land at least.  I love that over water approach to LAX.

Thank you Jack. Unfortunately I do not have much time to fly currently, but this will hopefully come back soon...

I feel your pain Gerold, I'm in the same boat.  Too much dumb real life nonsense to contend with.

Just in the nick of time before your OOM, geat job Gerold! :)

Thanks Adam. I am already satisfied when I get such a complex plane landed on such a complex airport. Keeping in mind that I did not turn down any sim settings before (like AI traffic).

Thank you Martyn. Perhaps you have to reduce the AI traffic in RL, too. Or increase the alcohol shader.

That sounds like a good plan, John... but before that I will already enjoy what I see from others here!

I would try to increase the alcohol but I can never remember where I hid the bottle!

If you hide more than one you increase your chances to succeed. Even in case one room is blocked by wifey & friends.
