Magnific shots, Bernard! They show really well the splendid level of detail of MSFS+Orbx Sydney... 

Many thanks, Dario. Have you received your commission yet? :D:D

Very nice shots Bernd (+ great information on Mosman Rowers). I had never thought the old Goose would look that good in MSFS. :)

Thanks a lot, Frank, especially for this wonderful scenery!! I have ported by now quite a few free- and payware planes over to MSFS. Quite a few of them look actually better in MSFS than in FSX/P3D, especially their VCs

As others stated before me...hard to believe this is a simulator.  I do have an important question...the in-sim Icon 5's water rudder does no longer properly interact (or the water..no longer properly interacts) for the purpose of controlling the direction of the aircraft on the water.  You can deflect the water rudder full Port or Starboard, and will turn about 15 degrees, but then, you stop increasing the turn...and the body of the Icon then plows forward...EVEN if you were trying that at full throttle as a test.

 

So...my important question...with your add on...can you steer upon the water...to even a full circle?  That would tell me quite a lot...that the water physics (when they dumbed down the water effects) were borked in the patch...or it was the Icon 5 that somehow no longer reacts to floating on the surface.   Please reply...and thanks!  Again...stellar shots!

Hi, yes, I could, and I can, full circle in both directions. I just tested also the Icon, same result, full circle in both directions. So maybe there is something wrong with your Icon installation.

Please Bernd could you tell me if there is a WWII warbird like a P-36 or P-40 which is ok ported in msfs (with ok VC and some working gauges - at least the main ones :P?  I would love to fly it O0

You got us, John. Here is the proof, taken from my Yacht. You can see Bernd´s yellow amphib plane just slighty right from the black tender and behind another sailship...

Oh yes, Jean Marc, there are quite a few. To start with, the FSX Acceleration P 51 Mustang works very well, with all gauges working.

Also the a2a P 47, the freeware Milviz Stuka, Milviz P 38, Just Flight Mk 1 Spitfire or the Aerosoft Catalina, all work fine with most of the gauges functional. If you are into older planes, also the Aeroplane Heaven Bristol Bulldog works fine.

Fantastic shots, and a fantastic plane (with the correct livery) taken for this tour. @bernd1151, did you just copy the OZx Goose into the respective MSFS folder?

Many thanks, Gerold. The conversion is unfortunately not that simple. You need a plane converter, that does it for you. There is a good freeware one available:

https://www.nexusmods.com/microsoftflightsimulator/mods/117

 

In it is also a link to a YT video, that shows you how to do it. I had to watch it a couple of times, before I fully understood, what I have to do. And not all planes will convert, so it's a bit of a trial and error activity. But when you fly at the end some of your favourite vintage FSX/P3D planes in MSFS, you know that the effort was worth it. :)
