Late Afternoon Trip near the Baltic Sea

Recommended Posts

Here are some photos I took this afternoon. Started in Sierksdorf (EDXT), passed EDCW (Wismar), headed for my hometown Rostock and landed in nearby EDCX (Purkshof).

Suddenly, the engine stopped. I had forgotten to switch on carb heat.

Finally, a shot of the city center:

The city is all freeware OSM and groundphotos. The position, shape and size of 90% of these buildings is incredible accurate. I could tell you exactly which house is what.

Could enlighten me about where I can find this scenery?  B)

 

Or is this Germany VFR? Where did you then get the OSM autogen? From OpenVFR?

Thanks :)

 

Okay, first, this is X-Plane 10, combining the following freeware sceneries:

 

The aircraft is freeware from xpfr.org, the livery of the aircraft is done by me and available here.

 

 

I am no FSX expert, but I guess there are photo textures available, too. I also think that you can get OSM buildings; at least OSM2XP is capable of creating FSX output. But I guess the easiest way is indeed openVFR Autogen.

I continue to be pleasantly surprised by the quality of screen shots from X-Plane.

:-)

 

X-Plane can look very good, especially with the combination photo textures + OSM autogen, because both line up perfectly with each other, and with X-Plane's default streets, railways and power lines. There's also a free plugin that adds real ship traffic all over the world.

 

The installation is very easy, only the download times are high, due to the large files (medium resolution 1 GB per tile, large resolution 4 GB per tile).

Didn't know you did The aircraft's Livery,Great job.

 

Only this one. And it is based on an already existant one. I changed the colors, the registration number (on the fuselage, the wings, and in the cockpit) and the flag on the tail.

 

In the cockpit I also changed the map which you can open, and I replaced the cover of one of the books to match an ADAC travel guide for the federal state. So the plane fits very well the region I am flying in :)
