PNW a' la XPX!

Recommended Posts

Man, what a TURNIP, I was....NEVER thought to check out KORS, and the area. I have (I guess?!?!) restricted my flying so far to the Great Lakes and the Southeast coast of the U.S.A. and Canada.

Well...I took off from KORS just a few minutes ago...and wow...does XPX put out the eye-candy at extreme resolution! I'm going to hit the Net and see if anybody had made a custom KORS after I land. The Pacific Northwest is done very well in XPX for no custom regional.

Again, the ocean---man-o-man, ok Five, woman-oh-woman (smile), XPX gives the BEST offering in water color and texture to date. Does this ever ramp up the reality meter. I could only wish to have this coding in unison with FSX's ORBX PNW!

I can only imagine what XPX's PNW would look like if a talented 3rd Party Dev got their hands into the mix. I can only imagine!

Also it seems, where ever there is an existant Ferry Service, you will see one doing its routes.;For instance, if you take off From Leamington, Ontario,Canada (or area) and fly out to Pelee Island, you should see a Ferry either going or coming from Pelee. I have the Sea Traffic Plug-in, if that matters whether you will see commercial marine traffic, or not. I do see sail-boats among the islands (KORS, etc) and do not know if this is in the sim, or via the plug in and its custom folder.

I suppose, you mean the SeaTraffic plugin (?) which is producing the ferry routes below (Openstreetmap):

Yes, that would be the one!  I'm heading out onto the Net to scour some PNW airports! :)

I just fired up XPX and shot myself over to KORS with that custom scenery.....AND THIS IS FREEWARE??!?!?!?!?

 

WOWZER!!!

 

The guys 'n gals only restricting themselves to the FSX sandbox....tsk..tsk...tsk....such a pity.......

 

Post Edit:  I SWEAR that those deer are out to get me....a perfect landing set up, from over the water...and a herd decides to run across the runway, near the marina....venison cooking on the engine block...nah....go around..... :(

Okee-Dokey......I have found my new haunt for the immediate future. The PNW of XPX!

I will over the next few days, search out and populate the same airports that I bought for FSX. XPX is certainly at EXTREME REZ setting, and water at COMPLETE, a beautiful sight to behold, and fly around within!</p>

XPX life is good, oh yeah....and getting better, one airport download at a time!

Happy Camper Ses

I have to say ALpilot, your meshes are superb. It's only recently I've come to recognise the graphical value of a higher definition mesh and I'm becoming a big fan of your work. Not having too much money to spare I'm also a huge fan of its freeness!

 

PNW does look great with settings high, and water with complete reflections is a joy to behold. I do worry about the sameness of the water though - inland, littoral, rivers, all the same, no waves for different weather etc. Are these things which will be addressed in the future do we know?
