Exploring the Kamchatka Peninsula

Recommended Posts

I tried this once in P3D, even with ORBX Global and Vector installed, it wasn’t really that special. My next attempt was photoscenery for XP11, with even worse results; and it didn't matter, whether I used Google, Bing, USA2 or anything else. It was all horrible.. So I gave up on it. This is now my third attempt and it looks much better, although we still need an improved mesh. But I know that I complain here on a fairly high level 😉

We’ll start with real weather on the south-eastern side of the peninsula at Yelizovo, will fly along some nice mountain area and will land on its north-western side in Palana, a small settlement with a population of around 3,200 people (click on an image twice, if you want to see it in its original size).

But in such a remote location with a presumably poor satellite database, also MSFS is occasionally not free of a few glitches

Even at 500 ft it looks great

Also the village itself looks believable

Thanks for viewing and I hope you like my little trip to a rarely visited place

Nice exploring Bernd. Another area opened up. As you say, there will still be some lo-res or glitchy areas, but generally it all looks pretty good. I know there's a type of person in the various forums who will word not allowed because it's not all 100% accurate etc, but for me, as long as it looks credible it's worth visiting. If a place also turns out to be accurate that's a bonus.

I fully agree with you, Andy
