I now finally and fully know...where the future of Flight Simulation lays!

Recommended Posts

I downloaded from the ORG today, the following from Mr. X6.

 

KSAN

KSFO

PAJN

 

I could only take a brief flight around KSAN and PAJN, but it was enough to know where the furture of flight simulation potential is...and for myself, it is XPlane.  To see these three selections in DSR 2.0/33 at 25-29 FPS....was truly 'breath-taking' for realism, and to fool the mind, that the scene is real. OMG!   Everybody will have their opinion...of course...but for me, after viewing these scenery files from this (OMG!) so talented artist....well...

 

I place my vote with Xplane (at 64 bit)...and will be spending a LOT of time flying over, and exploring fully, these sceneries, WITHOUT holding my breath...that a software developer like ORBX might step into the franchise fray.  After viewing these sceneries...and seeing what potential there is,....I frankly, no longer care.   

 

To Mr. X6's....incredible work....and with  Andra's mesh plumping up the terrain and mountains....OMG!....I have my cake...and am stuffing myself with it....almost to the bursting point  :Big Grin:  

 

Enjoy:

 

 
 
 
BTW, these pictures are not even close to the actual screen output...too many 'reduce' hurdles and size restrictions for upload acceptance, to let you really see what I have in front of me...and THAT...is a crime...
 
Here is the link for PAJN, but search for the other two airport/scenery files from this talented man, also...and GO GET EM! You will see what I am going nuts over..... for XPLANE XPX.35b RULES!
 
 http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?app=downloads&showfile=25190 and use 'view other files from this member' just under his handle to get to the other two fabulous files from him...  Wait until you see the detail of the airport properties...of which my flight pics don't highlight....just wait...KSAN will blow your virtual mind!

Are those coming?  I'd really love PHX done to his standards.  Also worth checking out is PAWD, which I think is done by a different author but the same level of quality.

I cant wait until the addons catch up with this sim.  All we need is for the scenery to become as accurate as p3d/fsx, a few pmdg quality airliners, and ASN weather.

There are two best airports for me

 

CYYZ Toronto

 

PAJN Juneau

 

and then we have PAWD.

 

How does Fsx / P3d have accurate scenery ?

@Sesquashtoo:

 

At about the same time you were writting this post I was installing the same two sceneries (KSFO, KSAN) in my XP10 setup. I only had the time to make a quick tour at KSFO.

 

OMG, what a jaw dropping experience! The breathtaking HDR lighting at dusk with all lights reflecting on water, the amazing airport detail with extreme objects setting at constant, fluid 30fps, the ultimate helicopter flight dynamics of the Dreamfoil AS350, even the road traffic, was unbelievable!

 

Everytime I find myself more and more reluctant to return to FSX...

 

I have also PAJN and PAWD installed which are trully amazing, especially being freeware. The quality of freeware addons for XP10 is unbelievable.

 

Being a GA guy, the one thing I'm really missing is a realistic weather system, something like ASN.

And another one is Ideal Flight for XP.  A system to prepare you for a flight by hitting a button, to remember where you have parked your aircraft, to create a flight plan and inject it into XP, as well as aircraft fuel and weight, and maybe add some AI traffic.

Impressive !

 

 

But I'm out of XP10 until I have proper daylight according to place and date / time of day, and proper Moon phases... and proper visibility ( without blur )...

 

All of this scenery stuff  is great, thanks specially to freeware producers, but I hate to arrive into an airport where it's still daylight, or at least twilight IRL ( and in FSX, MS FLIGHT, ... ) and in X-Plane 10 it is pitch dark, or looking at the Full Moon when it's new Moon .... Or flying an airliner ( let's wait for the 733 and see what it brings, but so far nothing even close to what I get in FSX... sorry ... ) at cruise level and be offered that ridiculous and annoying blur... which was supposed to be fixed already, wasn't it ? Or not having a proper weather injector, because none of the weather injection products available long time ago for FSX can be ported to XP10 due to the many limitations in terms of internal variables... 

 

I know I'm being negative, but I got tired of waiting for the plain vanilla fixes, and see things that I do not even know what they mean, being offered as the latest fixes... and watching the growth on those iPad apps, and probably the development of yet another cycle of XP ( XP11 ) when we are far from a final product in XP10...

 

Well...


Flight Simulation is the Virtual Materialization of a Dream...

Uninstalling flightsims is a temptation I can never resist...

You are not being negative. I feel the same.  That's why I go back to FS9 but come back to XPX just for the visuals because of HD v3 and W2XP.

 

I think there is an issue with the time in XPX.

to create a flight plan and inject it into XP,

Yes, I have to admit that for the airliner people things are not so rosy for a number of reasons, like proper airliners, winds aloft, visibility, ATC, AI traffic....

Great tool, thank you!

 

I will soon start flying in FSEconomy which is a nice alternative (?) to Ideal Flight, not so automated though. But it gives you the same feeling of flying with purpose, that your virtual pilot life has a certain continuity  :lol:   Also it gives you a plausible reason to enter airport xxxx in the XP10 airport selector...

I've recently bitten the bullet with X-Plane 10, I had X-Plane 9 which didn't do it for me because of the lack of addons,but X-Plane 10 really is starting to mature.

I've done full flights with it, something I had never done with X-Plane 9 (sorry I hate calling it XP,because of the OS), and the future is there. It needs a few scenery developers to step on board,such as FSDT and Flytampa,but I will take a look at these sceneries and enhance my experience with X-Plane.

With these sceneries, it's definitely heading in the right direction where GA is concerned but for Airliner stuff, there is IMHO still just too much still missing (much of it mentioned above).   I don't believe it will ever become 'the sim' for complex stuff, but for GA, it's certainly becoming a credible alternative sim.

Yes...for GA...it rocks!  I do take tube flights, here and there...but still consider FS9, the ultimate tube simulator.

 FS9, the ultimate tube simulator.

 

Curious!  :-)  Why not FSX ( and yes,wrong forum for asking :-/ )
