How much beauty can a man handle during one flight?

Recommended Posts

Went from KESW to KOMK shortly after dawn. Wow. How much beauty can a man handle during one flight? :wink: What an awesome flight this was! Great mood, great light, great everything! Obviously you'd have to see it in motion to really appreciate it all... :wink:

I really like that GNS530's Terrain view in certain situations...

And I also love GPS approaches!

Great approach over green fields with those valleys in the distance.

Great shots! Are these X-Plane 10?

No, FSX. The RealAir Legacy above Orbx NRM.

Do you use REX or ASE?

 

I use REX but only for (specific) textures (clouds, water reflection, sky textures, all at lowest possible resolution) so not the weather engine. I do own ASE but I don't use it because quite often I don't like current weather (also because I usually fly on the other side of the world) and historic weather doesn't work too well on my PC somehow. The weather in this flight was one of the Orbx weather themes manually adjusted for lower visibility.

BTW I am thinking about buying OpusFSX because it gives you different weather in different places that you can actually see from a long distance, just as in real life: it also uses real time weather but I read that with the next update you will be able to save a weather as a theme (including all variations and changes) which would solve the problems I have with ASE. You can even exchange themes, which is nice.

J van E. I am interested in how one manually adjusts the Orbx weather themes. Didn't know you could do that.

Editing ANY weather themes (not only the Obrx ones) in FSX is very easy, but let me start by saying you won't be able to save the changes: the changes only stick as long as you have FSX running OR when you save the actual flight: the weather will be saved with it.

 

On the Main screen click on Change (Current weather). Select the Weather theme you want to edit at the top. Now here comes the trick: click on OK (to load the weather) and when you are on the Main screen again, click on Change (Current weather) once more. Select User-defined weather and then click on Customize... That's it! now you are editing the theme you loaded previously!

You can change basic Conditions using the menu you see now but you can also click on Advanced Weather (underneath the map) to customize the theme with a lot more control: there are four tabs there: Clouds, Wind, Tem/pressure and Visibility. Take note that each tab has its own set of layers! You really can go crazy with the weather in that menu! :wink:

 

So the trick is to select a theme, click OK and then go back immediately to make the theme 'user-defined'. You can not select a theme and immediately go to user-defined: in that case you will be editing the weather that was loaded before you got to the weather screen.

 

It's that simple! Quite often I change visibility (some themes have way too much visibility) and/or the Wind speed of a theme with the basic controls, but sometimes I also move layers a bit up or down on the advanced pages when I don't feel like flying in the clouds al the time. :wink:

Now you need to get the 430 and add it to the Lancair as well. You can have your approach displayed while monitoring terrain at the same time. :-)

 

Super shots, Jeroen!

Do you use any sort of ENB or is it a "clean" ambience?

 

I use ENB but with rather mild settings.

If you would like to share that ENB please give me a PM. :wub: Would make me happy.

 

Well, I may just as easily post it here. :wink: I use this version of ENB:

 

http://speedskater.ru/download/arccvid/EMBserie_for_MSFS.rar

 

And in the enbseries.ini that you will find in that rar file I only changed the following four settings:

 

BloomMaxLimit=75 (default was 100)

DarkeningAmountDay=10 (default was 40)

DarkeningAmountNight=0 (default was -30)

ColorSaturationDay=1 (default was 0)

 

That's it!
