Southeast Asia - can I call it "Martyn´s backyard"?


Recommended Posts

Getting ready in Delhi in typical Indian weather...

... and with the typical traffic jam. This airport has only single runways, so it is way to small for all the traffic (like their roads).

The ganges and some artificial lakes near Dhanbad.

Kolkata. As big as LA, and as flat.

Leaving the coast of Bangladesh...

... and landfall at Myanmar.

Irrawaddy river - its banks are full of pagodas.

Bangkok, hidden under the curtain.

Into Singapore we got the STAR ARAM1A, for the 02L.

Great flight and shots Gerold!!!!!  It is always nice look at shots of areas I never fly at.

Thank you John. At least in virtual it is only few clicks away for you!

We really do need OpenLC Asia...

That is true, Rongor. And I even left out the landclass repetitions. Rome was not built on one day!

Man, South East Asia is one of the ugliest places in the sim...:ph34r:

So you went back to Singers and didn't look at my flight to SFO... !! :(:wacko::'(

Lars, Africa is not much better depicted, yet. Even the Canaries, and they are only a jump away from us!

I´ll check your work in a minute :wub:!

Honestly, John, I wanted to start another discussion about Martyn´s holidays. Perhaps this comes up tomorrow B)!

Thanks Gerold for reminding me, sure was a dream start to your flight and a Dream Start at the finish!:lol:

What a terrific RL photo, reminds me of Bradford when I used to visit years ago.

There is no need to make any comment about OLC Asia is there but I mustn't complain as I  now have my old country to fly around in the best possible detail.

Well, I liked it because I always get to learn something new.

It could only be the geography, as you know how to fly by the book already.

Dreamtime in the Dreamliner, always a good idea.

The picture was not taken in Bradford, as far as I remember. It might have been Visakhapatnam, at India´s west coast...

I would not even expect an entire continent in TrueEarth... the landclass base with a bit mouthful ton (!) of POIs is suffiient for me....

Beautiful aircraft! Though you realize you don't have to drive on the right side in aviation? :D:P

I never care which side to use in p3d. And I did not in FSX before. Just keep "collision reality" off...

Well, Gerold, let me risk much wrath by saying that I enjoyed the trip and do fine in SE Asia. But, then, I still do fine in FSX. Keep your standards low, says I, and they'll always be met. ;)

You wisdom is indeed a good way to be satisfied. In the case of flight sim programs I would still recommend to go on to p3d, it is easier on the CPU, avoids CTDs, improves graphic effects and most add-ons work (though some charge you extra).
