Baby breath mint prepping out of Vancouver

Recommended Posts

Inspired by HL James' stunning shots of the Cascade mountain range taking a big BA 380 into Vancouver, I'm prepping for a flight out of there to KLAX....

...With a Horizon Q400 waiting at the gate as a long Bus taxis in the background.  :lol:

 

More shots to follow....I really like this Bus!

Steve, how have you got your AI configured? I can never get it so that AI don't bother me during takeoff and landing. They invariably get in the way. Very frustrating!

 

Sweet shots, btw!

Awesome shots, Steve. Are you driving the Aerosoft 'short' bus? ;o)  I miss that plane, and think it's time I installed her into P3dv2.5.

 

  cheers, Craig

 

ps, looking forward to the rest of this series of pics.

Thanks Aamir.  Me and AI have an understanding...when I want to takeoff or land, and they are in the way...and wont move in an acceptable time frame, I fly through them, hehe.

Will start working on getting them to behave later...but now just having fun flying in P3d.

Thanks Craig.

The Airbus in P3d 2.5 is awesome!  She is by far my favorite to fly in P3d so far.

Speaking of the rest of the series...here is the next set...departure...

 

I leaned over in the cockpit to pick up a pen I dropped, looked up at the glareshield, and was stunned by this view...

So stunned that I forgot to grab screens of the pushback and taxi out :lol: ...here is the departure...snowy one at that...

Again, some really nice shots there, Steve. I concur, the environmental lighting in P3D is absolutely breath-taking. It amazes me every time I fire it up. The PNW area really accentuates that lighting even more. 

 

 Cheers, Craig

Beautiful shots Steve - can I ask, are you using a camera utility to move around the aircraft and do your walkaround? .. and if so, which was is it?

 

thanks,

Hey Craig, funny you should ask about a camera utility...I don't actually use one, but I am passionate about getting cool and unusual angles for my shots, especially when I'm previewing a paint I'm about to release.

 

Here is a post I did back in June, describing in detail how to setup the default cameras that come with FSX to do your panoramic bidding.  :lol:

The only update I've made since then is changed the xyzrate to be 8 vs 4 (as you read the post, you'll see this is the speed at which the camera pans...by default its a paltry .25 meters per second...I bumped to 8...you can do your walk around pretty quick that way, LOL) 

Read the whole past and you'll be set on how to build (well modify the existing) camera sections in your aircraft.cfg files.

 

Click the link to head to the post in June....

Thanks Steve, that's really useful! ... I would actually rather find a simpler solution for simulating a walkaround, than having yet another utility running in the background alongside P3D.    Thanks again, I'm reading it now!
