Rising sun, Palm Springs....Amazing!

Recommended Posts

Made this shot a bit bigger than my usual scaled down 1800 pixel ones because it just looked so cool.

What I can't show you in a screenshot is how the shadow on the bottom part of the mountains slowly crept down as the sun rose behind me...where the mountains on that side were casting those shadows. I turned the sim rate to 8x....much easier to see that way. 🙂

Then as I'm sitting here typing this up and getting the pics ready...my Caravan is shut down so in the background I hear nature noises and ground vehicles moving around.  Suddenly I hear what sounds like a Southwest 737 flying over my house.  In the real world I live right under the approach path to KDAL, so really hear them all the time.   I thought that the noise was not comming from the window as usual but from the speakers.  Sure enough....pan around...a Skywest plane flies overhead on its way to KLAX.  He's a little low for this approach in real life...but you do fly over KPSP on your way to LAX.  Just a surreal moment...hehe.6e7PfO.jpg

 

This sim, with the new patch.  Never in the history of simming have we had a better looking, better performing application..period.  And OUT OF THE BOX!!!  That is what truly blows me away.

Nice set! I agree, this sim is visually stunning and performs excellent.

Inspiring, as usual. I'm counting on you to keep me entertained until I can get a computer that will handle this.

Thanks guys!

YEah the sim amazes me every time I go up.  Have saved several sets of screens of areas I've been to in real life....just need to stop flying and post them, lol. (this is the hardest of all the previous sims to stop playing.....there is always one more "Oh yeah I gotta check that out" destinations when you think you're done flying for a bit) 🙂

 

@John F, what system you you currently have?  You may be suprised. 😉
