  1. Just checked my emails and saw the announcement of this. Had to get it! First attempt at a flight, out and back to Nellis AFB. Looks 'kin luvverly!
  2. Just me shooting an ILS 10R at the airport where I work (KFCM). We're supposed to get a Winter storm today with 4-8 " of snow (which is great because my kids want to go sledding!) Anyway I just really liked the look of the sky and lighting in these. The real weather is a good approximation today (not always though). Dino's MB339 with livery at flightsim.to Nothing edited here either. Our larger runway does actually have a large slope (as visible in my sim shot with approach lighting bars) to it for the first 1000 ft on 10R. I included a real shot from a very murky day (but please note I used a large telephoto so it looks excessively sloped) snowyfcm by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr snowyfcm2 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr snowyfcm3 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr snowyfcm4 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr snowyfcm5 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr snowyfcm6 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr IMG_3822 by Ryan Butterworth, on Flickr
  3. Hi simmers πŸ˜‰, The look of todays flight at 37000 feet.. cheers πŸ˜‰
  4. I've been waiting to see how this Orbx offering turned out. I've found myself less impressed with some of their modelling since MSFS came along and I don't know if it's because of any intrinsic issues with their products or just that MSFS has raised the barriers so much higher. For instance, I used to be pretty much gob-smacked by their London scenery in the True Earth on XP, but looking at it now it feels a bit more Lego-like than I remember. I suspect it is just raised expectations, but on first impressions I feel the same about this Paris add-on. The buildings feel a bit too squeaky clean and stick out of the landscape as more obviously models than some of the background buildings. But then I probably like to get much closer to the scenery than most folk, so I suspect my opinion is a bit off the normal percentile scale (as it is in a lot of things <grin>) Anyway, for any interested parties, here's some pix. I couldn't decide at first if this was a dodgy piece of modelling - but then I saw this and realised I probably just have a non-Parisian opinion about architecture! Still in touch with my inner hooligan You do know what's coming, right? Crashed and burned shortly after this. Still, it saved the Arc de Triomphe from potential unpleasantness. For now . . .
  5. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ , Some Situations.. ..Icing Blades on an A320 787 on his way to land in Kambotscha.. 787 short before start early at the morning.. cheers πŸ˜‰ and happy flying !
  6. Myself and my Flight Sim Network partner have been stupid. For those that have been following on stream will know we have complained for some time about how slippy the A320 is. It just runs like a rocket even at idle taxi. Then a light bulb moment meant we realised what we had been doing wrong. This video is to help anyone unsure like we were.
  7. Just a couple of shots while messing around with the replay software. Never been here in RL, nearest I've gotten is Breaking Bad! Had some nice scenery for here in the other sims so thought I'd come see. It's rather fine.
  8. From the same initial flight as my previous post. First, a cockpit view for any interested parties. No idea of the accuracy of this - the panels seem a bit 'neon' to me but that may well be accurate, I guess you need to be able to see this stuff in real life without having to stare hard (oh, and if anything here indicates I'm flying inaccurately or ungramatically or anything else, don't bother to tell me <grin>) And as this flight passed over the Hoover D*m (in case the sensitive AI here gets upset), I couldn't resist nipping down with the drone cam for a quick look around And I STILL can't believe how great this sim is!
  9. A very relaxing flight from Swanson (2W3) to Westport (14S). I know I've done a similar route in P3D and FSX with Orbx PNW. Bowerman was just THE classic Orbx airfield in PNW. On this relaxing flight I depart 2W3 towards Olympia, WA and then onwards towards Hoquiam, WA. I've planned for about 130 KTAS at 6500 ft. The flight takes around 45 minutes. I've also picked out a really sharp looking livery on the DA40NG.

  10. Removed - didn't see previous/existing topic (I'm easily excitable!)
  11. Hi simmers πŸ™‚, Today i cruised over Iran - looks real amazing IMO.. cheers πŸ˜‰
  12. Hi simmers πŸ˜ƒ, I like this little lake near the Airport.. cheers πŸ˜‰
  13. Another one of those sights I'd not gotten around to. Glad I did now though.
  14. Was just looking for somewhere to practice taking off and landing in the Waco, but found myself well impressed with the area. I'll be back to explore more later - it's KTTA if you want to try it out.
  15. Coming in to KPHX under AI control. That AI is even worse than me - I've had one accurate landing out of maybe five or six I've tried recently. Perfectly willing to believe I may be doing something wrong but given that I've seen it work perfectly on one occasion, I'm not sure. Anyway, all part of the learning process. The plane came in almost ok to the target runway, a bit off to one side onto the grass at first, but then wondered round in circles coming to a stop before heading off to the target ramp Once it got on the correct path to the ramp, it all calmed down and seemed to be going ok again. And then I noticed the flying trucks in the background! I guess that bit of the AI got fed up with my flight and went off to play with the traffic <grin>. Can you have delinquent AI?
  16. An attempt to set up a saved replay for a flight between KLSV and KDMA. No success for various reasons but got a couple of ok grabs Replay was via FS Playground - I'm beginning to get on ok with that. I know there's many who think thay they're not going to pay for a feature that should be in the basic sim but for me, I miss this capability so much I'm ok to pay for it. The basic replay seems to work fine, still refining it a bit for my system, but it's gonna do what I want ok. Next step, figuring out a decent video recording package that ain't too jittery. The future's so bright . . .
  17. Gave in and bought the Bredok3D Typhoon as I was finding the lack of sophistication in my own portover a bit limiting. It's not bad, but it needs a fair bit or work yet, I'd say. Throttle control only seems to work one way - faster! It shoots off up to Mach 2 or thereabouts faster than you can blink, but slowing down is altogether another matter - I've spent most of my time in this with the air-brake on. Nice to have dials that work though. Anyway, just a couple of shots. Headed out from an airbase I can't remember now and down towards the mountains. These are pretty much overhead from Davos. One of these was the star of the local airshow for the last couple of summers (Not 2020, of course). Finished the show with a vertical climb right over the middle of the bay, crack a few windows and then away! Planning to recreate that and grab a few shots for the album!
  18. I just realised I've not actually visited NY in MSFS. Can't think why, so off I went. Out of JFK, which looks pretty good for a default airport, and off towards Manhattan Approaching Nyack up ahead on the left. I had a couple of teaching trips here back in the day. Loved the town. Small, quite peaceful, and a lovely little downtown section with a few really good secondhand-book shops - always a good indicator of civilisation as far as I'm concerned I think, but I'm not sure, this may have been the place I was teaching. If I look closely with the drone the buildings are marked as shopping mall stuff, but I was at the Prudential and I seem to remember it was a massive set of buildings, but who knows. Good old AI ships! And then on to Poughkeepsie, home of IBM According to Google Maps that's the IBM manufacturing complex coming up and swinging in to touch down at KPOU, the local strip
  19. I bought the four seasons package recently after a bit of mental tussling. Not really convinced it's great value, but some of the effects look good. This was a test run up around Maine in the leaf season. Out of KBGR, headed east for a bit. Thought I'd put these up in case anyone else is thinking about this package - this is what the fall season looks like.

  21. This is a short hop between two unmarked strips in western Idaho. So they aren't on the VFR map that you'd have on your iPad or EFB. I had to Google Krassel USFS 24K (which is on the VFR map) and then look north up the South Fork Salmon River. The Northern arrow is YellowJacket Ranch and the south is Wiley Ranch. Both are available and really nicely done here: https://flightsim.to/file/5013/xid1-yellowjacket-ranch-idaho https://flightsim.to/file/5018/xid2-wiley-ranch-idaho The scenery in this part of the world is stunning. (There are a few non satellite patches around but "meh") Anyway I've taken the Savage GGRAVEL (experimental highly modified Cub shall we say): https://flightsim.to/file/5061/savage-grravel-monster-truck-in-the-skies from YellowJacket down to Wiley and it's a short flight - short but scenic...a pilot could get "lost" for hours in this area!

  22. We expect harsh weather coming from the west tomorrow in Athens. So i took the A320 to LGKF (Kefalonia) to see it approaching.
