Siberia II

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

some pictures of my recent journeys in Siberia:

At first from a flight UNIP Podkamennaya Tunguska to UIII Irkutsk, then some "wildlife" at lake Baikal.

Have fun!

Hello Harald, The clue is on my flight yoke. My sim is running beautifully BUT........

 

My wife gave birth to our son three weeks ago. :Party:  I packed up my sim and put it away as I knew I would not have any time for it.  :Broken Heart:

I put it back together yesterday but I cannot fly the way I used to or make videos..or make panels. I have to get used to "jump in and fly" which is not me. :Nerd:

 

I am happy watching your flights for the time being. :hi:

Great pics Harald!

Congratulations Ed!! Had no idea you were married or had a new born. As soon as he's a little older he can be your copilot.

Sascha, if only I knew... What I know for sure is that I applied the contrail mod of Flusifix. And if you say me the filename, I can send you my file.

Congratulations, Ed! I hope that wife and son are well!

 

But I also think there will be better times again. My first son (7) has got his first simulator plane some time ago, a Piper Cherokee. And my little son (2) - this was a year ago:

Nevertheless, all my flights take place between 9 PM and 2 AM. As Otto Lilienthals last words were: "Sacrfifices have to be brought." In our cases, it's not our life, but our sleep.

 

All the best to you, Ed!

 

 

 

Great pics Harald!

 

Thanks cmpbellsjc.

Harald

flying in Russia as passenger

Cool. May I ask: when and where? And with which plane?

Of course Harald, That was at the end of the Nineties and most of it to Moscow, Kasan, Irbit and Tjumen. Moscow and Kasan was a Lufthansa Airbus, Irbit and Tjumen (where I had to go more often) was in one of my company's (BASF) corporate jets, a Lear 45. In those days BASF did not allow me to fly anything Russian. Maybe they worried more about my safety than I did. But four times I flew from Moscow to Alma Ata (Almaty) in Kasachstan in an Ilyushin 96 without telling them. What a plane. You entered it via the cargo hold and then climbed up to the passenger compartment. Food was lousy, but the plane was great.

Thanks Bernd, that sounds exciting! Beside the Ilyushin, surely an approach to Almaty is a great scenic experience.

Somehow it's a pity for these classic Soviet airliners - I came too late for fly with them. I only know two former CIS countries' airports from real world - Kiev and Tbilisi - and some Tupolevs slowly deteriorate at the apron at the latter one, but none will be flying again. Fortunately in Kiev one can see some Yak, Tu and An which obviously are still flown.

 

More Russian flightsimming will follow, but now: Happy Holiday.

Harald, for me one of the most impressive Russian birds is the Tu-114. I saw her in front of Sheremetyevo and was struck by her beauty and sheer presence. Then I started to read about her history and was even more impressed. And the great thing is that I can fly her now in P3D. I will post some screenies here soon.

 

All the best, 

Bernd

the Tu-114

 

Oh yes, this is a monster. Looking forward to some screenies from a flight Moscow - Khabarovsk! (This would be worth an AI setup for Aeroflot in the 70ies...) For me, the Tu-114 would be too big, while the 134 is quite o.k.

 

 

 


Awesome pics, Harald!

 

Many thanks! P.S. Your sim also does look great (your textures seem sharper than mine), your FS9Evo+OSM setup is unbeatable. I was too laze to set up OSM; instead I use a GIS landclass that has been in the library recently.

Very edutational as ever, Harald!

Love your AN-2 shots especially.

Now I have to go spend some quality time with Wikipedia again :)

 

 

 

 

 

Did I just invent a word, I wonder?

Thanks WingZ, have a good time. I'm preparing the next flight meanwhile...

 

 

 


What AA settings do you use? Also do you use sweetfx?

 

AA in FS9 is deactivated; within the "AMD Vision Engine Control Center" (for my AMD video card, the ex-Catalyst Control Center) I have set AA as follows:

- Overwrite application settings

- Sampling: 4x

- Filtering: standard

- AA method: Multi Sampling

 

I have no Sweetfx because of an appaling flashing/flickering when changing views.
