Fantastic shots Mark. I like that you have taken the time to add explanations for readers who aren't familiar with this amazing part of the world.

Funnily enough, I am currently adding/editing greenish pools like the one in that shot from near St Austell to some open cast mines in Australia ;-)

Thank you Mark... That's interesting, and something I look forward to seeing when ready. I bet the open cast mines in Australia make these look like tiny pimples?...

Wonderful stuff Mark.!

 

I am amazed how you are manipulating lighting perspectives in these shots. Orbx TE , XPlane and your deft touch are the perfect combination!

 

It's been years since I was in that part of the world.  Thank you for the commentary. It brought back some great family memories.!

Cheers

Absolutely stunning Mark - well done!

I've just got into XP11and True Earth and it's so much better than P3D4 with True Earth.

The textures, lighting and overall realism are a world apart.

A few questions: What Xvision settings, if any, are you using, are you using a weather programme and where can I obtain the Spitfire?

Thank you Pete... Coming from you (XV preset maestro) that mean a lot.  It's a wonderful part of the country... atmospheric and very interesting, with an amazing art scene.  I love it!

My XV settings, along with a lua file to modify shadows and haze is below. I'm not using any weather add-on, and simply set my own conditions in sim.... the XVision preset does come with a modified cloud texture set however.

 

The Spitfire is the freeware version available HERE

I do notice some slight texture anomalies with it, with some areas appearing slightly transparent... not sure if it's XV or a problem with the model and current versions of XP. If anyone has a solution let me know...  It's a fairly minor thing though.

 

_____________________________________________________

 

XVision preset as used in these shots.... It a modded version of one of the default presets packaged with XV [11_30_xV_Impressive] and therefore it's not all my own work, with some values remaining unchanged... please consider it a W.I.P.  I have added a separate LUA file (Shadows) which should be added to X-Plane 11\Resources\plugins\FlyWithLua\Scripts.... It is an attempt (there may be better solutions for this that Renault has offered, which I've yet to explore ) to make the shadows less blocky, and also alter their shade depth. I've also added the 'fog be gone' parameter, but to increase the haze... as I like a lot of haze. If you don't like it, then don't use the preset, or modify this value to reduce it.

 

I've kept the 'Resource' pack that is included in the original preset... If you have you own textures for these elements then untick them before using this preset.

I've made an amendment to the 'shadows' .lua file... if you downloaded it, please dl the new version below.  You'll get horrible edge flickers on the cloud shadows with the old file, in which I managed to remove a critical line :rolleyes:
