Recommended Posts

Hi there!

I hope you like them:

Oh, sorry!

Somehow, the links don't work anymore.

If I find the time, I'll repost them later once more.

It's OSM scenery (simheaven), a European library for adding better, more realistic autogen, highway signs, etc., HD mesh v2 (alpilotx), Treelines and Farms v2 (alpilotx), all being freeware.

Additionally, I use UrbanMAXX 3D for improving the look of the urban areas, SkyMAXX Pro (in some of the shots) and MaxxFX to give it a more natural and realistic look (but that may be only my personal taste)

Oh, and you can see the pics?

OP, are you using Real Terra Haze? If so could you show us a screen grab of your settings?

Thanks a lot for your help with the non working links!

I don't use real terra haze.

I either tweak the art controls manually with the dataref editor, or I let EFASS do the work. Its UltraWX weather injector changes the typical art controls on the fly, depending on the weather situation, etc.

Very impressive! X-Plane is really in a league of it's own these days.

Yes it's in a league of its own, I was never actually complaining about X plane 10 and still use it everyday, but now i am tired at looking at that stupid AI.

I view the lack of AI as a worthwhile sacrifice for the sake of a better overall simulation, I just use Overlay Editor to park statics at the fields I fly to/from. I always found it annoying to have to wait in a line of AI for a runway slot in FSX/P3d but each to their own I suppose. I see the lack of AI as allowing for other more useful effects. As for the other regular complaint from users or those who won't use because of its lack, I just use http://www.liveatc.net/ in the background to provide a real ATC soundtrack to the flight which I find much more convincing than any of the ATC products I've ever had the misfortune to purchase. There's nothing like listening to real pilots communicate with real controllers around the fields used in your flight, very convincing. When looked at form a wider perspective I think that overall, XP just has more to offer the simmer who goes further than just downloading the demo which, let's face it, doesn't show how well XP can look and perform with a few simple, cheap or free addons tacked on to it. It certainly applies though that you need to purchase good addon aircraft to get the proper effect in all its glory but that applies to all flight sims.

I would switch off AI but X plane is anyway barren hence I tend to use it , LOL imagine a helicopter is holding short of a runway.
