Didn't complete the flight (VFR from Lands End to Edinburgh, meandering up the UK) as real life got in the way - the mood had gone so I didn't even save it to finish later. Up to then it was a nice relaxed sim session, pottering about in the Islander. She was nicely trimmed out in the cruise, but I did activate the autopilot later to get a bew.
Oh well, at least most of the shots are OK, and I could still land the jet! Preparing to depart in the wee hours at Nairobi. Positive Rate! (FSX NOTAM, I may pester Sky Sim with another email regarding the loss of some undercarriage door animations..) Love this one of the rising sun. Later in the flight - nice winglet shadow on the fuselage. Passing Lake Turkana. Khartoum. Feet wet over the Mediterranean. I think the mountain ranges in the distance are in northern Greece and Albania. Mount Etna, Sicily near the horizon, above the port wing. Nice airport! No, seriously, LFMN - Nice ,France. Good old Blighty! Stansted EGSS just above the lower window frame. Touchdown at EGCN with OOM. I tried to take a screenshot on the approach - I'd disconnected the AP as soon as it established on the localiser, to get a bit of stick time - the sim went into windowed mode with a message behind it which said "unable to process screenshot" or something like that. No OOM dings, but airport not fully rendered as can be seen. The sim was still running ok enough to let me vacate the runway, but no point in screenshotting the rest. Oh well...
Decided to take a trip from Blackpool EGNH down to London Stansted EGSS (I've got an MD11 en-route to Stansted 😉 ) in a Rockwell Commander 114. The latest VFR Real includes 3d autogen too and IMHO it works well for photoreal. I've only got the autogen set to normal in my sim rather than full on, so it looks a little sparse but that's my compromise.(I need to get an SSD )
