Very nice. Is that snow actually in the game though?

 

Yes big time hard to tell by screenshot - freaked out loaded sim it was snowing - I live 20 min south of Boston - sure enough its snowing here - yuck - so much for driving the vette tomorrow 

 

Shot number one you can see blowing snow on runway   :wink:

Wow looking so good!

 

Damn thats amazing... I'm leaning towards X-Plane more and more each day!

 

Thank you Friends - beware X-Plane does need high quality payware aircraft - PMDG - Aerosoft comes to mind   :wink:

Your screenshots look amazing Richard, could you please post your XP11 settings and tell me what add-ons you're using besides Mister X's KBOS and xEnviro? Are you using w2xplane osm scenery from simheaven along with HD Mesh v3 as well?

I think that is one of the main things that holds a lot of people back, including me. What good does that great looking sim do us when we have no PMDG 737, 747, or T7 or FSL or Aerosoft Airbus? I know that there are some other offerings for passenger planes but not the same models mentioned above in the same fidelity.

 

XP11 is looking pretty nice though.

Thanks Aaron only using Mister X's KBOS and xEnviro at the moment - settings not in sim right now 1:00am time to call it a night but the usual as most not much to change there really - not 8x aa I can tell you that - 4x - texture quality all the way up - world objects all the way up  - hdr one notch before full but that doesnt matter much from what I've seen having it full - shadows on

IXEG 737 is an amazing product - but I think that is pretty much it in that high quality range for heavy metal

Beautiful shots!

I love the FF 757v2, the mighty Tu-154m by Felis (a true study level sim!) and the IXEG 737, they provide extremely immersive simming experiences.

Especially the IXEG is a pure work of art. The visuals, the sounds, the camera shake effects, the ground handling, the flight dynamics. For me, it's the best overall representation of a modern airliner for any sim platform.

Fantastic shots Richard. I had a similar experience flying out of Calgary last night. The light reflecting off the snow is extremely convincing. I even like the effect of the way the snow falls especially when hitting it at speed.

As I stated several times, do yourselves a favour guys, and perform a night flight and approach through cloudy (snowy and rainy) weather with xEnviro in X-Plane.

How the aircraft lights (even the flashing strobes) illumate these clouds and the haze is really out of this world and so incredibly immmersive. The sense of speed and the sensation of flight you get out of this is so much better than anything I've seen in ESP based sims!

Hi Jim,

 

a single plane, the IXEG 737, brought me from p3d to x-plane 10. Man, this is an incredible immersive aircraft. I watched the videos at their youtube channel and immediately bought it. Version 1.1 is in development. Btw.: Since then, the only thing I used from p3d was the uninstaller.

 

Please watch this...

Kind regards

Thank you All - you need to try XP11 - hard for pics to do it justice - going into snow in VC is like space warp (not until your moving - at rest pretty cool) so could use a bit of toning down - xenviro is a wip so not judging until it Laminar does Their thing

Thx for the shots Rich, I can't remember, is XP11 going to support multiple seasons?

No - but there have been plugins for XP10 - for me not a big deal but nice to have options

Great pictures! I highly reccomend Slava's seasonal textures:http://forum.simrussia.com/index.php?/topic/208-%D1%81%D0%B5%D0%B7%D0%BE%D0%BD%D0%BD%D1%8B%D0%B5-%D1%82%D0%B5%D0%BA%D1%81%D1%82%D1%83%D1%80%D1%8B-xp-10/ They're incredibly easy to use, just drag/drop into the Custom Scenery folder, and look great. I can't fly in winter without them anymore. They aren't dynamic like ShePooley's script, but that script isn't perfect so I prefer doing it manually. You can edit the regions that experience snow via a png file in the package.

The pictures don't really do it justice. Trust me, it looks amazing when you see it in the sim

Not in 11.0, but Ben and Austin have talked about doing shader based seasons in the future, which would allow for snow to build up and melt, display over orthos, etc. They haven't given any timeline though.
