  2. My first attempt to fly from EGLC to LOWI yesterday was unfortunately cut shot on final approach by a bug with the MSFS Pause Button aka Game Freeze function, as I pressed that the aircraft literally fell out of the sky, just spiraled to the ground. I've always had an affinity towards the larger business jets, so I decided to give that route another try today with the Cessna Citation Longitude. The aircraft is far from hardcore, some would argue it isn't even up to the very basic "Carenado" standards, yet it is certainly stunning visually both externally and in the VC, plus it is actually quite functional and easy to get "flight ready" from cold & dark. Cold & dark at EGLC, the weather was certainly much better yesterday here in London! Unfortunately again no push-back service, I hope this bug gets fixed. There was really absolutely not enough space to turn, I decided my best option was to use reverse thrust to exit the parking position. As they say in German, Not macht erfinderisch! Imagine someone had shown you this image 30 years ago, when the first flight simulators were available, and told you that sometime in the future we will be able to enjoy such imagery on a PC! A RWY 09 departure today, straight out east over the Thames! The clouds certainly look interesting, the lighting is very impressive. Climbing out towards the UK coast, the flight plan has the route set for FL 410. The weather over the Channel was pretty murky, there was nothing eventful enroute, just a permanent cloud cover below most of the time. Arriving over the Alps, the weather seemed a lot better than yesterday. Heading towards the RTT VOR at FL 130. The very buggy ATC kept asking me to descend to 9500 ft, that would have been guaranteed CFIT. Very close to Innsbruck now, the weather again being grey and murky in patches. There is a lot of room to improve the overall mesh, nevertheless the Alps are certainly stunning! Close to the RTT VOR turning point now. Turning south and then west to intercept the Innsbruck localizer. This is going to be a visual approach, autopilot off, flaps and gear down. The hand flown approach was much smoother than I expected, the aircraft handled very well and was not too twitchy. The wind kept pushing me to the left, trying to correct and stay on the glideslope. Welcome to Innsbruck, touchdown right on the centre line, the reverse thrusters doing their job to slow the Cessna down. The sloped runway is subtle and so much more realistic than the standard fully level runways we've had for so many years in FSX and P3D. Quite mind-blowing that the grass in a flight simulator can look that good!
  3. Hi fellow simmers :smile: I am new to forums so don't really know if i am posting this in the correct place or not so please let me know. I'm wondering if any of you can help me in finding out what kind of graphics card/hardware i need in order to achieve a really good realistic flight simulator... I've been looking online recently and have seen that people have got extremely good graphics even when at mega airports I struggle at the moment to get good FPS when at LHR (EGLL) even when my setting are extremely low. I have updated my PC over the past couple of years but it still isn't great, what do you guys think i should look at purchasing next? My current specs are: Ram: 4.00GB AMD FX -4100 Quad Core Processor 3.60GHz 64 Bit Operating System NVIDIA GeForce GT640 Any ideas on what i can change so that i can get ultra realism? p.s im kinda looking for this kind of level: thanks for the help in advance !! :smile:

  5. I decided to take take the Citation Longitude on my first flight on a route from EGLC to LOWI. The overall weather in London was calm and sunny this morning, with a few scattered clouds about. With the wind coming from the west, take-off was going to be from RWY 27 towards Tower Bridge. Getting ready for departure, for some reason there was no pushback available through the ATC menu, though clearly the pushback service was lurking about. Climbing towards FL 410 with London and the Thames river in the background. Crossing the channel towards France. The reflective detail on the water looks superb and quite realistic. The UK mainland in the far distance now. Interesting how the clouds along the flight path were changing enroute, little did I know what was going to be lying ahead cloud-wise. Starting the descent with the Alps now in the far distance in front, the weather ahead has certainly taken a turn for the worse! Heading towards the RTT VOR the Cessna was skimming in and out of the clouds. T Turning south at the RTT VOR, the clouds all around are just amazing! Turning west and getting ready to line up with the approach path into LOWI.
  6. Looking at the weather report last night, I read that there was rather stormy weather forecast for part of the UK, and so I thought, why not take a quick hop from Leeds to London in the morning. And so here we are with the sleek looking TBM 930 parked at the Leeds Airport Multiflight hangar, the weather is much better than I expected! Winds are from the east, holding short of the active runway to taxi out for a RWY 14 departure. What's particularly interesting here is the very noticeable slope of the runway, this really adds so much to the overall look and feel of being immersed in a true to life environment. The slope from the perspective of RWY 32 with the TBM 930 right at the end, ready for takeoff. And we're off, climbing out towards FL 210 for this short hop to EGLC. The city of Bradford below, the large white structure above the wing on the port side is a Marks & Spencer distribution centre. The 50 knot headwind is almost directly on the nose of the aircraft. If you were stuck back in the luggage compartment, this would be the view towards the cockpit. 😉 High above East Midlands Airport (EGNX). Always good to have company, even on a short flight like this. Sywell Aerodrome visible just in front of the starboard wing. Cruising at FL 210 and passing Bedford Aerodrome now. The city of Bedford with Bedford Aerodrome in the distance. Never thought I would see so many recognizable sights, the circular area is the Milbrook Vehicle Proving Ground. Flying east of Luton Airport, the weather still seems very good! That is Welwyn Garden City with the Panshanger Golf Complex almost directly below us now. The London skyline is now clearly visible, we are flying right above Banbury Reservoir, with Lockwood Reservoir, Low Maynard Reservoir, High Maynard Reservoir, Walthamstow Reservoirs and a bunch of other reservoirs visible off the nose. Crossing over London City Airport now with the famous Thames Barrier very well depicted, a landmark that can't be missed! ATC cleared me for a RWY 27 visual approach, just before a bad weather front arrived. As I turned off the engine at the GA parking the sky became all dark and gloomy with rain starting. I hope you enjoyed this short pictorial of my flight this morning in the lovely TBM 930 from Leeds to London! Cheers, Jerome
