Nice shots. That's one of the things that bothers me with FSX/P3D: even when you're at 35,000 feet, it looks like you're at 10,000.

As one who has tried unsuccessfully..and given up trying to use the X-Plane (9 and  now 10.36)interface as being too hard , these images have rekindled my interest. Can I ask what addons/scenery/aircraft/tweaks are needed to get to this standard.

Nice shots!  Those are default clouds, right?

 

I'm very curious as to what location these are in.

what part of the UI do you find too hard? at the forums we can always help.i do agree with you that xplane UI is not as easy as FSX but you can definitely  get the hang of it if you spend a couple of hours

Yea!  I always noticed that too.  It always bugged me.  If Microsoft was still developing flight sim they probably could improve on this.

Also should be noted the shots are using Real Terra Haze which provides the great atmospherics.

I am a P3D user and I must say that your scenery blows P3D out of the water!! Also I might add FSX too!!!  All donationware for you and a lot of $$$$ for P3D and FSX and still no where near as good as X Plane.  Very nice indeed.
