  1. BM World & AmSim Miami Airport...The Tour Btw, this product is way better than the Latin VFR version and works on my 10Gb RTX3080 card (they recommend 12GB or more). Hopefully, you enjoyed these images, your commentary is greatly appreciated...Darryl
  2. Further to discussion of the concept demonstration version of the MSFS2020_AutoFPS starting here, the app has now matured to a point to where I am happy to formally release it. You can download the latest version of MSFS2020_AutoFPS here. In summary, this free utility is a new development that is a simplification of, and a slightly different concept to, DynamicLOD_ResetEdition. It aims to improve MSFS performance and smoothness by automatically changing the two settings that impact MSFS performance the most, namely TLOD and cloud quality settings, based on the current AGL and with an easy to use GUI. It provides features such as: Automatically adjusts TLOD to achieve a user-defined target FPS band based on pre or user-defined maximum and minimum TLODs, TLOD minimum on ground/landing option, which prioritises TLOD over FPS during these flight phases and also averts exacerbating existing texture tearing issues with DX12, Cloud quality decrease option for when FPS can't be achieved at the lowest desired TLOD, Automatic pause when MSFS loses focus option, particularly useful if using FG due to varying FPS when MSFS gains or loses focus, Automatic FPS settling timer on MSFS graphics mode and focus changes to allow FPS to stabilise before being acted upon, Simultaneous PC, FG and VR mode compatibilty including correct FG FPS display and separate FPS targets for each mode, A greatly simplified GUI option that uses pre-defined settings for an automated experience suited to most user scenarios, and Auto restoration of original settings changed by the utility. Important: This utility directly accesses active MSFS memory locations while MSFS is running to read and set TLOD and cloud quality settings on the fly at a maximum rate of one read and, if required, change per setting per second. The utility will first verify that the MSFS memory locations being used are still valid and if not, likely because of an MSFS version change, will attempt to find where they have been relocated. If it does find the new memory locations and they pass validation tests, the utility will update itself automatically and will function as normal. If it can't find or validate MSFS memory locations at any time when starting up, the utility will self-restrict to read only mode to prevent the utility making changes to unknown MSFS memory locations. As such, I believe the app to be robust in its interaction with validated MSFS memory locations and to be responsible in disabling itself if it can't guarantee that. Nonetheless, this utility is offered as is and no responsibility will be taken for unintended negative side effects. Use at your own risk! More information, including instructions on how to install, update, uninstall and configure the various options in the app, can be found in the readme file located here. I hope that the app proves useful in getting the most out of your MSFS 2020 experience. I welcome any feedback you have on this app and will do my best to fix any bugs or issues that are identified..
  3. Finally some good payware scenery hitting the market for Richmond, VA. KRIC has always been one of those fields that is neglected in the sim and I think the folks at AXONOS did a great job modeling this. Looking forward to the release on April 6th! ORBX - AXONOS - KRIC Richmond International Airport
  4. Nothing major here, just another sale buy in the Texan. I rather like this, and it was a good price in the Marketplace sale just gone. So just a few quick shots after heading off from EGFE (Haverfordwest) quite nippy, and fun to fly.
  5. Little known, because it doesn't exist. But it sounds like a proper 1960s limo, perhaps a signature version of the Super Snipe maybe. Anyway, just got an email from IniBuilds that mentioned the Horten Ho299 for sale. Had to rush straight over and grab that one! Always fascinated by some of those German WWII experimental aircraft. Nasty bunch of folk but they seemed to know a bit about engineering and design. At the same time I'd also spotted a payware version of the Secret Studio's Humber Bridge. I have the freeware version (from flightsim.to) and the bridge itself is fairly similar but the immediate landside scenery is new for the payware version, and it was cheap and I like to support this sort of thing. So a quick blast off from EGNT and up the river to gawp at the scenery. Not much flying, as is often the case with me, but I love the level of detail around this bridge package. And for me anyway, the Horten is a real thing of beauty. Dialled in a bit of weather I'm always impressed by bridges. 'specially bigguns! I'm obviously still well in touch with my inner child. Now I realise that if you're zooming past this area at FL200 and 300 kts or similar this sort of thing will be lost on you, but this is what makes the sim for me. I just love this sort of detail and am happy to spend ages wandering around with the drone cam exploring down here. OK, back to the flight I continue to be amazed, delighted and incredibly impressed by MSFS and the various bits and pieces available for it. The sheer scope of it all is incredible - pretty much the whole world available in this sort of detail. And I know it's all very much an individual thing and everybody has their own preferences etc, but I read (well, glance at) some of the threads in here bemoaning this or that developer and the perceived inadequacies of a particular aircraft or airport and I wonder if I'm using the same sim. We really have never had it so good! Although my inner cynic will now be waiting for a post from someone claiming how a real Ho229 pilot they know has stated categorically that the flight model of this thing is inadequate, and furthermore the cockpit switches are not making anything remotely like the correct sound when clicked. Hmmm, maybe I'll actually start such a thread and see what happens . . .
  6. Haven't used the Ryan for a while, so thought I'd give it a go. I don't tend to do islands much so thought I'd see what Madeira looked like. Out from LPMA, scenery all default. Airport is quite good but not over impressed with the PG and scenery on the island itself, but that may be down to the usually poor quality from the servers on a weekend evening here. Still, had some fun and grabbed some snaps, which is the main purpose of this for me. Out from LPMA, late afternoon, sun is going to fade out fairly quickly around here, I expect Never been here in RL either. Seem to be some impressive cliffs here. Those boats look worth a visit Not sure which package these are from - I have several global boats and marinas type packages in use As you can tell, I've been heading west but am about to turn in and head north to the other coast And now the sun is really dropping And now at night - And a couple of weather adjusted shots to finish Haven't been posting for a while as not been flying much, but had a few flights today, hence the burst of pix. I've actually been building a second sim PC. Decided to use my previous machine, which was just sitting around idle and as it is a 3950X with a Titan RTX card that seemed a hull of a waste. Plus I had a Honeycomb Alpha and Bravo pair sitting in boxes unused, and various other bits and pieces sitting around, and so the only thing I needed to buy (and I could have used one of a number of spare but lower res ones) was a monitor. Got a nice 34" curved 3440x1440 Philips monitor from Morgan Computers (refurbished kit seller in the UK) for a good price and have spent the last few weeks setting it all up in my workshop, as a sort of "cockpit" setup. I figured as I've got it all anyway I will leave it permanently set up and maybe have the occasional attempt to get to grips with pressing some of those buttons and playing with the FMC etc (I have a couple of tablets I can throw in there as well). I had put aside a bench in the workshop as a sort of PC repair bench, so I've been playing pretend carpenter for a while instead of pretend pilot. Almost ready to go now, and then the fun of setting up the systems/controllers properly will begin. I also had a second copy of MSFS via steam, so have set this PC up to be completely separate from my main sim pc, with separate MS, Store, and X-Box ids so that there are no links between my two sim PCs. This "new" (actually 'old') pc will run the Steam version (just the basic version) essentially as default, with no addons, which itself will be interesting to see - So this whole setup has cost me just a couple of hundred quid for the monitor, plus a little bit for some wood (because as anyone with a workshop will tell you, even with all that wood and those scraps you've hoarded over the years you will definitely not have at least two bits the right size and shape you need!), which I figure is pretty good going. I consider it a great way of re-cycling!
  7. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ Another flight with the JF BAe 146-300 this time the Cargo Version. Flight was from OINR to LTAF around two hours.. If you want to see the shots in the best resolution then please click on the picture !! cheers πŸ˜‰
  8. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ A short trip with the updated BAe146 from Justflight ( V.0.2.0 ) and its a beauty, at last for me.. If you want to see the shots in the best resolution then please click on the picture !! cheers πŸ˜‰
  9. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ Two livery varitation of the BAe`s 146-300 in PAX Versions. BA Express.. BUZZ.. ASTRA Airlines So sometimes i like such livery comparsions.. If you want to see the shots in the best resolution then please click on the picture !! cheers πŸ˜‰
  10. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ Today i did another 4h flight over Africa from HDAM to HUEN which was realy beautiful.. If you want to see the shots in the best resolution then please click on the picture !! cheers πŸ˜‰
  11. Hi all, this short flight is my special little route to test aircraft since FS9. In those days there was nothing on the ground in between Pit Meadows and Bellingham. Than Holger Sandmann did a few lc files for it, was an improvement. And today we have it all photorealistic, great. Installed the KBLI airport by Fly2High because the stock msfs didn't impress me much and looks good now. The Bonanza comes in a nice classic livery by Ryan Butterworth, can be downloaded from flightsim.to. Thank you very much for viewing! Cheers Andreas
  12. Further to extensive discussion of the initial releases of MSFS2020_AutoFPS here, the app has undergone a major update to version 0.4.2 which was formally released today. You can download the latest version of MSFS2020_AutoFPS here. In summary, this app aims to improve the MSFS user experience by automatically changing key MSFS settings that impact MSFS performance and smoothness the most. It has an easy to use UI and provides features such as: Automatic TLOD adjustment when in the air to achieve and maintain a target FPS, Improved target FPS tracking for all modes by having much smaller TLOD changes the closer you are to your target FPS, giving more consistent FPS for a better flight experience. A choice between VFR and IFR flight types, which changes the flight phases where the app prioritises FPS or TLOD, Auto raising and lowering of the minimum TLOD option, depending on low altitude performance being either very favourable or poor respectively, Auto target FPS option, which is useful if you don't know what target FPS to choose or if your flight types are so varied that a single target FPS value is not always appropriate, Cloud quality decrease option for when FPS can't be achieved at the lowest desired TLOD, Automatic OLOD adjustment option based on an automatic or user-definable OLOD range and altitude band, Simultaneous PC, FG and VR mode compatibilty including correct FG FPS display and separate FPS targets for each mode, A greatly simplified non-expert default UI option that uses pre-defined settings for an automated experience suited to most user scenarios, Auto detection and protection from known similar apps already running or incompatibilities with newer MSFS versions, and Auto restoration of original MSFS settings changed by the app, recently enhanced to withstand MSFS CTDs. More information, including instructions on how to install, update, uninstall and configure the various options in the app, can be found in the readme file located here. As with all earlier releases, I hope that the app proves useful in getting the most out of your MSFS 2020 experience. I welcome any feedback you have on this app and will do my best to fix any bugs or issues that are identified.
  13. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ A small set from depart at the Philippines ( RPLL ) - and take a look at this wonderful propeller blades lightning.. If you want to see the shots in the best resolution then please click on the picture !! cheers πŸ˜‰
  14. Miami...A First Look Several more pictorials to come, hopefully you enjoy this one. Hopefully, you enjoyed these images, your commentary is always appreciated...Darryl
  15. Hi all, this is one older set of shots again and it's a nice scenery there by Orbx. There's a road crossing the runways which therefore is sometimes closed because of car traffic. Thank you very much for viewing! Cheers Andreas
  16. Hi all, now I've installed some vessels for the islands there and did some little flights between Hana and Lihue. The "Airwolf" Bell 222B is by Cowan. Looks great and flies well but I cannot activate the autopilot as it is in Xplane. The switches are blind and this makes me a bit upset. Or I am just too stupid to find it....πŸ˜—πŸ™ƒ The situation here would of course cause some problems for the people down there because of the air vortex created by the heli. But it's not simulated...πŸ™‚ These airports by Northern Sky are absolutely great. Some more vessels all around now, could be more various cargo ships and tankers. Can land on it, it does not sink through the deck. This one can really do it easily, it's not very fast, max cruise is only 75 kn, but it's very good in flight behaviour. It's the over 60 years old Bell 47J by Microsoft/Inibuilds and was the first helicopter which was produced in series. Thank you very much for viewing! Cheers Andreas
  17. I just love the PNW area... it's got beauty in all directions. I'm flying back "home" to Shady Cove from Beaver Marsh (2S2) in my Husky. Shady Cove Airpark (OG31) is payware (really cheap though) from Orbx. This is a lovely freeware paint from DarkAngel: https://flightsim.to/file/62421/asobo-a1c-husky-n859ds Leaving in the morning...

  18. Here's a fun little VFR flight I flew from Lewiston, ID to Walla Walla, WA (LWS - ALW) I'm showing off TimHH's stunning blue livery for the Carenado T182T Skylane. I'm also showcasing Bullfrogsim's LWS and recent ALW airports. These are all incredible freeware from people who spend hours to bring us these creations: https://flightsim.to/file/71487/carenado-cessna-t182t-n323cs-dynamic-registration https://flightsim.to/profile/BullfrogSim/trending I got a weather briefing and although ALW was on the eastern edge of a large system (moving NNE), it still showed VFR, so we'll get going and takeoff to the WSW for our 60 mi trip. I do about 110-120 over the ground with a stiff headwind. The trip takes about 40 min including dodging some less than VFR areas hehe.

  21. Haven't had much sim time of late, but grabbed a quick session at EFIV, Ivalo. This is either the stock A320 or the LVFR version - not sure which! Just having a tentative play with GSX. This is the MM Simulations EFIV (via Orbx). The airport is nicely done, with good interiors, but is let down by the really weird looking characters. Very plasticene and fake looking, so that rather inhibits any interior shots. But we'll start inside, nice and snug, getting a coffee before going outside into the cold. So there's our ride getting gassed up waiting for the crew now here they come baggage arriving and now the passengers all onboard now pushback and away Got myself a few Finnish airports on sale, so I'll be back here when I get a chance again.
  22. Hi, Recently I have noticed that airport become blurry with a some increase in altitude above the ground. I'm almost sure it wasn't so visible before - looks like mipmapping (or something) doesn't work enough. The attached screenshot was taken with the following settings: AntiAliasing TAA anisotropic filtering x16 texture supersampling 8x8 TLOD 150 texture resolution ultra https://photos.app.goo.gl/4EmyXbRM7wDJzHes8 All settings seems fine, but picture is ugly...
  23. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ Some sightseeing over New York.. If you want to see the shots in the best resolution then please click on the picture !! cheersπŸ˜‰
  24. Hi, how to renove rhis strange sharpness from msfs? The objects edges are like 'dancing'.
  25. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ A couple of shots with the FBW A320 over Africa.. If you want to see the shots in the best resolution then please click on the picture !! cheers πŸ˜‰
