  1. The Learjet (v2.8), as good as the model is, is an absolute VAS hog, so here are some tips for improving VAS conservation. 1. Use smaller textures. I've included some in my mod package. This is the best way to save some memory since MSFS creates a clone of the material (including textures) for every animation in a model. And the Learjet has a lot of animations. 2. Disable "High Resolution Virtual Cockpit" in FSX' options. This oddly enough yields about 200 MB of additional free VAS. 3. Lower autogen from "Extremely Dense" to "Very Dense". The extreme setting tends to bleed available VAS dry (not just with the Learjet, mind you), even despite running less varied autogen with lower res textures. 4. Disable flood lights. Yeah, you read that right. Despite Flysimware's optimization efforts, the flood light gauges still contain multiple dimmer stages which increase VAS use. Since these don't make all that much difference at night (console and instrument lights are much more important), it's best to simply disable them by commenting them out with "//" in the panel.cfg. Look for the lines containing "FLYSIMWARE_DIMMER!RADIOS_FLOOD" and "FLYSIMWARE_DIMMER!PANEL_1_FLOOD". While you're at it, also disable the completely unnecessary map light ("FLYSIMWARE_DIMMER!INTERIOR_MAP"). Nota bene: The next release of the mods will contain revised gauges for the lighting which will eliminate all traces of the dimmers. Other than that, the usual VAS saving tips apply, i.e. stay away from everything with high resolution textures (scenery, clouds, AI aircraft) or detailed mesh, save often and early, use FSUIPC to monitor available VAS, use DirectX 10 mode in FSX, etc, etc... With all VAS tweaks (except "high res VC" since it affects aircraft using 2D gauges), I took the Learjet on a tour de force along the East Coast in the afternoon all partied up (all lights on) with real weather (quite foul at the moment). Starting north of Boston at 11000 ft, I went south to the tip of Long Island and headed straight to New York City (which is Flight Simulator hell due to AI aircraft and custom scenery objects). Zooming across the city and EWR at 2000 ft, I climbed to FL220 and turned toward Philadelphia and onward to Washington, where I circled at low level (~3000 ft) before landing at IAD. I never dipped below 600 MB of available VAS during the two hours it took to fly the route. I won't dare to say that there are no VAS issues anymore, but it was a definitely positive experience with the aircraft.
  2. I took the recently released Xtreme Prototypes Learjet 25 v3.0 on a 1200 nm flight from Tivat Airport in Montenegro to Ambrolauri Airport in Georgia. My route: I've always wanted to visit Georgia, the very picturesque setting of the many towns and villages between the mountains is particularly appealing, as is the food I've heard so much about. On the descent after having passed waypoint TAGAR. The peaks of Alaniya National Park in the background. Ambrolauri Airport (UGAM) in sight, tucked away in a valley right next to the Rioni River. Great weather for a visual approach to RWY 29, the final descent could be tricky though due to the surrounding terrain. The unmistakable shape of the stunning Learjet 25D. The approach into Ambrolauri Airport is going to be pure eye candy. Turning to the north to head into the valley. The terrain feature of the GTN 750 is definitely helpful here. Turning back to the west now to head down the valley on final approach. The airport is now at my 1 o'clock just beyond the ridge ahead. Runway in sight, final landing checks complete. Cleared to land, what a great approach to fly! Almost lined up now, speed checked. The Rioni River borders the eastern edge of the airport. Moments from touchdown now, there is a very slight crosswind. And touchdown, welcome to Ambrolauri Airport! The airport terminal with its unique and unmistakable design. PBR splendor! Thank you David Hilker, you have created a real gem with this unique airport! I can highly recommend this stunning freeware airport that is now available for P3Dv5!
  3. There was a request for night shots showing the panel of the new Xtreme Prototypes Learjet, here they are, with the Learjet stopped at Alicante Airport (LEAL), awesome scenery available from PILOT'S. Captain's seat perspective, forward view with only instrument panel lighting switched on.

The lighting on the new Learjet is incredibly well done!
  4. The latest version of the Xtreme Prototypes Learjet has finally been released! Just a quick test flight into the very scenic Santiago de Compostela Airport by PILOT'S. Apparently this airport is know for foggy mornings and bad weather, so too this approach was full IFR. The early morning sunrise casts a strong orange hue all over the foggy landscape. Runway 35 approach with the airport clearly in sight, the silhouette of the Learjet is just stunning! Cleared to land, perfectly aligned on the ILS! It's not every day that the early morning sunlight creates such an interesting light mix with the rising sun. The dynamic lighting and PBR effects on the Learjet are exquisite and second-to-none! Moments away now from touchdown! The new Xtreme Prototypes Learjet is absolutely awesome, the full Garmin GTN integration makes this aircraft superbly capable of custom high altitude flight plans.
