  1. Thanks! You can take small jets here, learjets etc...! Commonly it is GA but some nice jets do stop by!
  2. London Elstree has been released for X-Plane by Pilot Plus. Features: Faithful Replica with HD detailed buildings High Resolution ground imagery of area Custom Night Lighting Animations, POI's & Ground Traffic Volumetric Grass Pre-rendered 'worn' atmosphere Every element of EGTR is in High Definition, so you are sure to feel like you are there! Available on the X-Plane.org Store and Pilot Plus Store! Elstree, famous for Elstree Film Studios, is a small airport which can serve your short haul GA flights or long haul small jet flights. EGTR has been carefully modeled to perfectly match real life, including textures taken from the real aerodrome! At EGTR you can feel the worn atmosphere, with dirt and grime applied throughout and even potholes on the runway! As well as the worn atmosphere Pilot Plus's virtual Elstree has been modelled and textured up to date, this gives you a faithful replica of the real airport. When airborne around the area of Elstree you will feel immersed inside X-Plane, this is because we have hand placed thousands of trees, placing each tree according to it’s real life position. As you fly over Elstree you will spot small farms in amongst the fields outlined with trees. Stephen from X-Plane Reviews has also reviewed London Elstree! http://xplanereviews.com/index.php?/forums/topic/330-scenery-review-egtr-london-elstree-aerodrome-by-pilot-plus/ I hope you like it! Joe.

    Any Sketchup Gurus?

    Hello, I hope I can offer you some tips and tricks when doing sketchup texturing, I will make a list of some good tips I can think of. Make sure you know what textures are going where in the model, this will help you position them accordingly in your net texture file. My main point here is plan ahead, as once you import a texture file into sketchup there is no going back. You can edit your PNG after and change colouring (which will change in x-plane, as xp reads the file) although if you get to the end of texturing and you wish you put in a flag texture, there is no going back unless you wish to re-texture your model. Try to avoid using Objects as ground textures in xp, yes its possible but .pol file are much better to work with and look better as textures can 'tile' when you remove the 'nowrap' text. The only reason I say this is because in your model you seem to have ground, obviously you may have intended to put it there? For sharper resolutions make sure that your most important textures are bigger in the PNG file, a door can be relatively small sized in your PNG texture compared to a concrete wall. If you would like to 'tile' a certain texture within your PNG Texture it is possible. However make sure you know which texture you will want to tile. You may wish to tile a concrete wall texture in sketchup, here is how. When making your texture PNG make sure that, in this example your concrete, covers the whole width of your texture PNG, this way when placed in sketchup you will find that as the concrete texture covers the whole width of the image as sketchup tiles it you won't have to divide up your wall and texture each segment separately. I hope those few tips helped. Your model looks good! Joe.
  9. I've just found this post. What a find, this scenery looks very good! Well done 'uwespeed'!!
  10. I'm glad your looking forward to Palm Springs! We would very much appreciate pictures of KPSP, any more images will only make the scenery greater! Thank you very much 'Strider1'
  11. Thanks for your opinion Mario. I do intend to add Ground Traffic as an update. Most likely V1.2
