Agree. I'm switching to X-plane after many years of FSX... I've been waiting for IXEG :)

 

Great Shots!

Nice shots.

However, for a simulation (X-Plane) that prides itself on having the very best night light environment, I am surprised that the runway lights are so far off. In real life, there is no way you could see the runway lights at such an angle (50-60) as the one shown in Pic 9 and Pic 10. At the very best, runway edge lights can be seen once the aircraft is almost lined up with the runway. Pic 9 and 10 seems to display 360 degree beacons visible at all angles... 

 

Or maybe it is made on purpose to help those pilots with sloppy navigation skills?

 

My experience flying is that an airport in the middle of a large city at night is best found by searching for a dark patch almost non-illuminated in the middle of the many city lights. As a matter of fact, the largest aiport in the world, KATL, can best be found by searching for a red "Fly Delta Jets" billboard in a dark patch rather by trying to find non-aligned runways.

Looks great! Can you tell me what files from w2xp you use, and if yo uadd anything else? (talking scenery, not sky, weather,etc).

Hi Carlos,

 

I'm using SimHeaven's W2xp Europe Mix:

 

http://simheaven.com/?wpfb_filepage=w2xp_europe_mix-7z

 

The file is huge and extracting takes some time even with an SSD. 

 

The other files you might want to download are mesh v3 files. Download only the regions you need. The files are also large, but easy to extract.

You can download free Austrian airports at

Lastly, you need an SSD and at least 16gigs of RAM for best results. Enjoy!

Nice shots.

When flying at night IRL, I look for the beacon. I'm well aware that I am flying a simulator. I'm not overly critical with how the runway lights look since the majority of XPlane airports are free. But, I do understand what you're saying. Thanks for your post.
