Sometimes this sim just blows me away...

A pair of shots from my recent CRJ adventures.

 

Climbing out of KJAC on a short hop to KDEN

The second shot is from a flight I did today KPHX-KSTS.  The flightplan was IZZZO6 HRRBR CURIV J212 DECAS BOILE AVE PXN OAK SAU STS which took me on a nice tour of very busy airspace/sceneries that simply would have been impossible before P3Dv4 without causing a OOM crash somewhere around the LA Basin, nevermind getting anywhere near San Francisco.  With ORBX NCA and SCA activated, I departed Flightbeam KPHX, flew over ORBX KPSP, within view of FSDT KLAX and LatinVFR KSNA, near ORBX KMRY, within view of Flightbeam KSFO, and eventually into ORBX KSTS, all without worrying about the "dings of death" OOM warning we've all become accustomed to.  

It's a great time to be a flight simmer!

I agree wholeheartedly!

Valdez with 4096 textures in P3Dv4 is another one that makes me catch my breath, light-years ahead of my expectations , and FTX Innsbruck...

Well! What can I say? 

This is a huge jump in reaching new heights, please pardon the pun. :)

Kind regards

Nice shots but they look so dark to me for being in day light.

This is something noticeable in many (otherwise good) P3D screenshots. Underexposed daylight to the point where it almost has an "underwater" look to it.

It's people who run HDR - the default HDR produces very dark scenes.  Especially visible when the acft is white

I've also got PTA running so I'm playing around with presets, lighting levels etc, trying to find that right balance.
