    Question about VOR to VOR Flight

    Here is a great site on VORs: http://www.navfltsm.addr.com/
  3. Thanks Tony, definitely getting myself a 6TB external HD today and linking to my new XP-11 500GB SSD.

    X-Plane Panthera

    Nice shots there Tony, I also picked up this beauty this weekend and it's an absolutely great plans and fun to hand fly.
  5. Thank you, this info helps with my evaluation.
  6. Tony; what's the average tile size for this selection of Ortho? (Can't experiment because I'm all out of space on my 120GB SSD card 😌) I'm looking to do the entire US and a few other regions, with a total estimated tiles of about 1025, so I need to do my computed data calculation for a new HD.

    Unfortunately; X-Plane “seems” to be an afterthought and is not their main targeted market.

    [XP11] Navion

    Beautiful....
  9. Great capture; those snow caps and sky color is absolutely beautiful.
  10. Splendid set there; they're a beauty, the skies colors look great. xEnviro weather rendering and XP really does a fantastic job.
  11. WOW!!! these shots looks awesome; keep up the great work guys....
  12. I asked the same question on the org, but haven't gotten a response. In my case I can't file a flight plan. I'm getting a Abort message stating "openscenery not found at custom folder" even through its there.

    pb9 is out

    PB9 seems to be running much better on my test rig: i5-2500K @ 3.4GHz / 16GB/AMD Radeon HD 5700/1024MB with rendering options set to medium or high, running stock scenery with only xenviro as addon. With PB8 I was getting FPS anywhere from 16 to around 22; FPS are now 26 to 34 on the ground, 32 to 38 while air borne with XE doing it's wonders. The AMD performance improvement works.
  14. Go get it; see release notes. Ben: "Clouds: I am still fighting with cloud performance, so this work is not in a public beta yet, because it’s not quite ready for prime-time". Interesting!!!! http://developer.x-plane.com
  15. Thanks Hans, slow going but getting the hang of things.
