    Jon Venema says P3Dv3 more like a 2.6

    Exactly. Not impressed. Looks like a bunch of bug fixes for the 2.X version. I was really hoping that they would do something about the clouds and water (if you don't know what I'm talking about, then you have no worries). FSX is definitely staying on my drive.

    I Found Popcorn Clouds Near KSFO

    Yes, you are right, a LOT of simmers have noticed this. Of course it's silly to say that it would never happen in real life, but the way clouds are rendered has changed, or mishandled and don't look nearly as good as in FSX. Having said that they do look great close in, but the further out the more the popcorn look becomes noticable. They also have a weird color cast, especially at the base. Again, much different than FSX, and not for the better.

    Lancaster Bomber for FSX

    I have the FCS Lanc and love it. The VC is really outstanding. And no, there is no FMC...

    AI Traffic

    Well, I certainly don't have a paper clip collection, but I do appreciate accurate models and great textures. Some could care less if the AI actually looks like what it's supposed to. Others do. Everyone has their own preferences. I started with Ultimate Traffic in FS9, but it has slowly morphed into my own concoction, all freeware, and looks better than anything you will ever buy. I did look at UT2 but several things bother me: Lack of mip-mapping, limited variants of aircraft and inclusion of MT models to fill in gaps.

    Prepar3D blue haze

    Sorry, how's this: Usually in real life the sky horizon is more of a very light neutral color and the landscape horizon definitely more bluish. If you have a blue sky horizon then that effect isn't seen as well and doesn't look as realistic. Even on a gray overcast day the blue horizon mountains really stand out. Check out Rise of Flight to really see it in a sim. I can't seem to replicate that with REX. The closest I have seen in FS are Pablo Diaz's textures and Flight Environment in FS9.

I have a chart showing how the colors are assigned on the sky textures, but don't want to go through the hassles of posting (used to be easy). Anyway the bottom two bars are for high and low horizon.

    Virtualcol Dash-8

    Well the link went dead so just do a search for "disrud" and it will pop up.

    Project Airbus Installation

    Do a search for Chris Evans on Simviation. He's compiled packs that are ready to go, including vc and sounds.

    They're up: http://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/fslib.php?searchid=38607132 Will be doing more now that the base textures are done.

    Mountain Home AFB

    Wow, that was a shock to see this old post. Totally forgot about it. Thanks so much for taking the time to reply. I installed the other scenery you linked to and it looks great. Think I'll turn off the airport photo base as Holger suggested. But the ramp is full of neatly lined up 366 Wing F-15Es. Wonderful!!
  11. I'm using the V2.4 Bonanza in FSX without any problems at all...but I guess it's not native.
  12. Henrik, thanks so much for the labor of love and making it freely available. This is quality stuff. I have a question. I would like to separate my aircraft and shipping traffic files. Can I put all your files in a folder and activate it in the library in the normal way?

    Boise Airport Poll

    KBOI - KGEG Spokane would be a great pair.

    Flysimware MU-2 Released.

    A few of us would rather fly and enjoy the scenery looking as realistic as possible rather than with our head buried in a manual and staring at a 2D panel.....imagine that, people can use the sim "seriously" in different ways.
