Cheers, Ed

XP11 All elements and effects sliders at Max.

The bird flock is part of XP11, and just after this screen grab was snapped, the entire flock took off, north-east bound....was amazing animation!

Same here...about 10 or 11,  the shot of the teacher, looking out at all the Ravens, sitting on the school yard play equipment...and knowing she and the children will have to make a run for it....one of the best non-gore horror films ever made.

Great, I'm looking forward for same effects within FSX/P3D

You do know, that I was just kidding about that program name, right? ;)

The birds (a stock animation feature of XP11) cause havoc on approach, or upon rotation, if you are not situationally aware in both operations.  It is VERY realistic...the bird strikes, (and you will have some!) will cripple or crash your ride....

There have been times aplenty, where I was forced to crank 50/60 degrees wing down, to avoid the flock as they flew across the end of the runway upon rotation.

Bad joke man, bad joke.

For those who don't care to have this sort of distraction present, there is a Lua script that allows users to tweak their settings in an advanced fashion, meaning that you can turn the birds off and on, if you so desire.

I don't think so. Gallows Humor in play.  Then of course, a person has to know what Gallows Humor is....;)  What the term means....

I like the birds...a great challenge and feature. FSX/P3D should have this.
