  1. Ortho4XP, SimHeaven X-World Europe Glasgow suburbs heading south Huddersfield Bradford
  2. You have to use the LNM 2.8 beta for the X-Plane 12 beta: Alex
  3. A bit more playing around in XP12. These are with Orbx TE UK in place (but possibly not the correct place - I haven't gotten back into setting up the scenery.ini file properly yet - just dropped a few symlinks into the folder). Takes a bit of getting used to flying in XP again. I prefer the "flying on rails" approach of MSFS with all the easy options on as I have no great desire to pretend to be buffetted about by the wind/rain/atmospherics etc - I mostly just want to focus on the views and the scenery. A flight from EGLL across London down to Southend. Lots of EGLL itself seems to be missing, but that may be my scenery ini setup. Also not sure how much of the city is from ORBX and how much from XP, but that's not important at this point. What I do like is the general atmospherics, more so when it's murky as in the later shots here. I doubt that I'll be spending much, if anything, on addons for XP, as I'm hoping to be able to use a lot of my XP11 stuff. But while I'm waiting for SU10 to drop in MSFS (as I've gotten fed up with all the crashes and stutters I've had lately in there and haven't been flying it much), I shall re-familiarise myself with XP. If I can get some of the old XP11 tweaks working in XP12 it could be a fine sim, but only in those areas whre I have good scenry addons already, I suspect. I'll try some of my older aircraft next, and see how they move across. That's one of the other things about keeping XP going - lots of aircraft I can't get (yet?) in MSFS. Missing buildings at EGLL over London heading out down the Thames Switched to some murkier weather here. Looks a lot better to my eyes Roads not working well at this point coming up on the Pier Nothing's going to tempt me away from MSFS at this point (although there are times when I feel like Asobo and MS are trying pretty hard to do that), but this is a fun option too.
  4. I'm loving this early release so far! The lighting is great. The weather is great. Seasons are great. The new aircraft are very nicely done. Even the new autogen-based scenery is very sold (I'm sure your mileage will vary depending on the availability of accurate OSM data). Overall, I think it's a great release and to think it will continue to improve for a number of years just like Laminar did with XP11 is fantastic. Here are a few shots of flying around KJAC in snowy weather (and yes, you can see snow hit your windshield... and breaking action sure suffers according to the level of snow and/or ice in the weather settings). This last one is near L.A:
  5. So far, so disappointing. I know it's early access, and I definitely need to re-discover how to do a lot of stuff in XP (get all my controllers mapped properly again etc), but my first impressions are that it looks nothing like as slick as the demo videos I've seen previously. Not that I'm hugely surprised by that, as it seems to be an industry norm, but it doesn't feel any different to my XP 11 setup. In fact on first glance it feels like a bit of a backward step. But we'll see. I wasn't going to go for it initially, figuring I'd wait a while for something nearer finished, but I went back and looked at a few of the teaser videos and let myself be persuaded. I was always going to buy this at some point so I figured - what the word probably not allowed! Feels smooth though. This is with Obx's Florida True Earth, and most settings maxed. I'll try around So-Cal next, and see what of my XP11 stuff works with it. LA in XP11 with all the bits and pieces I have for that is still possibly my fav area in any sim, certainly in my top three or so. So here we go, nothing special, just thought I'd share them
