Just a quick check of the more European part of Africa


Recommended Posts

Despite my current virtual Australia travels, which will be continued in the next posts, I simply had to do a little hop in OLC Africa. And I chose the only area I know by personal experience:

Taking off from GCLP Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, as always to the north:

The city of las Palmas with La Isleta and the north coast of the island.

As you know, the north-western part of the island is green, as the clouds are captured by the mountains.

Unfortunately for the VFR pilot, some clouds are captured by the mountains...

Managed it! Here you can see that the southern part is dry and grey - the other side of the medal I just described. And now, finally, correctly shown in the sim!

Arguineguin to the left, and two typical holiday resorts (Balito and Puerto Rico) of the south coast.

Maspalomas and Faro. Here I start to miss some more houses (=Autogen)...

A bit further to the north is San Agustin. Here we definetively need more urbanity, just compare to the real life shot taken 2 decades ago.

The tomato fields near Pozo are, again, totally correct.

After all, OLC exactly shows Gran Canaria as I expected - despite the little lack of autogen. I hope some helpful soul will just drop it along the coast for an upcoming revision... :rolleyes:.

Very nice shots, though it took me a few seconds to realize that "two decades ago" only equals 2000. :(

 

Half a dozen possible tourist repatriation flights come to my mind right now, so thanks for the inspiration again. B)

My pleasure, Mikee. Basically "just" a first test of OLC_Africa.

Sounds like you are going to be busy at the sim over the weekend. Hope you find the time to post some!

Sounds good but I have to finish two SAS flights first, ESSA-EGPH-ENGM... anyway I can plan them already.

You know this is exactly the way I do my virtual travels, mate...

Some great shots nicely shown and narrated Gerold!

Thank you my friend. Sorry no yellow plane and no significant bridge on the island to be seen (there is only one west of Maspalomas, I´ll look for it).
