Two-fer: Cheyenne and XpressSim DLH/SUW

Recommended Posts

I recently visited the Simforums (F1 forums) and noticed Alan had released a cool new product - XpressSim.  It's basically a pusedo-photoreal scenery with autogen annotated on top.  Well, not just autogen, but buildings in the shape of the real ones.  I'm not sure how he does it but it looks really cool.  There just happened to be scenery for Duluth, MN and Superior, WI - where I fly often.  I think it cost around 10 bucks total.  Anyway here it is along with the Cheyenne - took her out for a spin and then climbed through the rainy weather to sunnier skies.  The Cheyenne is one of C's best products to date I think.  They do analogue the best.  The Cheyenne is a rocket of a climber...  I can easily do 4000+ fpm with a light load.

Anyway there are a few other XS locations already submitted.  I get the feeling they take requests too... as the locations already done are sort of random hehe.

In the first pic you can see our new terminal (sure it's not Flightbeam but it's dang good for generated scenery!)

See how the roads/autogen follows the true course of the hillside and I no longer have roads overlapping default textures...

Canal Park looks great (but no Aerial Lift Bridge for now)

Superior, WI, the houses look quite real on the scenery backdrops

Thank you so much for posting this Ryan.   We are trying to get the word out about XpressSim, as it is going to take some time to build up market credibility.    Your screenshots look great and really do the product justice.

P.S.-I don't have the time to follow the public forums closely these days.  But, I do frequently search Google to see if XpressSim related material is getting around.   This post came up immediately and made my day ;)

Cheers all,

Allen Kriesman
