Out of Salt Lake bound for Phoenix

Recommended Posts

My new Ortho Scenery addition, so I can fly from Salt Lake, over the Grand Canyon for Phoenix.  I have flown this route many times and I would argue it is one of the most beautiful routes in the world to enjoy either in the flight levels or in a turboprop or prop, like the Cardinal.

I thought for the longest time that those circles were just scenery fillers but when you look on sat maps they're the real thing.

My Ortho coverage for Xplane11 is shown in my Grand Canyon post I also just made, my last screenshot forum post.  I just measured the coverage and it is 200GB, and it is a considerable swath of the southwestern US, so if one extrapolates the entire US can be done in two Terrabytes at this resolution.  Ortho scenery for P3D at a lower resolution takes up even more spave due to the way scenery is stored in BGLs   But my Colorado scenery for FSX and P3D here in the forums does not take up that much space.  Sadly there is no way I can upload 200GB of Xplane11 scenery to the forums as I would have to live to about 110 years of age, about 53 more years, in order to upload it all LOL.  By that time I estimate Jim Young will be about 200 years old (just seeing if Jim is reading....)

Yea I know what you mean, I just did one tile in P3D and it was something like 30+Gb with P3d you can't get overlays so I'm better off waiting for TrueEarth stuff.

I have my overlays for Xplane11 and my photoscenery disabled, although I do enable them sometimes for flights in the country.  I do not like them over the city photoscenery as they block the very scenery I want to see at altitude.  But for country flights, I love them....
