Yes, most of those shots feature the Carendo C-182...but omzig was asking about this aircraft.

Yes, that right, and Tim as said that himself. I don't think that is a problem as such, but I think Peter has a very genuine interest in the natural environment, and this certainly shows in his work, which is far more subtle and [ironically] Real than Tim’s approach. To my eye's, a lot of what I've seen of REX is OTT and makes FSX look less natural, and more like a computer game. But maybe that sort of thing appeals to the FSW crowd, which seem to attract a younger flight simmer than sites such as Avsim or flightsim.com, and Tim is appealing to that audience..

Hey guys

Im back from Barcelona (freaking awosome place and i got to checkout all the guadi stuff id been looking at for years in books in the flesh or err stone/wood &metal as the case maybe!)

Im not gonna jump in on the REX Vs FEX debate untill i can test them side by side,one thing i will say is that the missrepresentation thing can be leveled at both partys

REX for what it maybe (jazzed up screenshots) & FEX for what they said it would become

Im still waitting for the Free massive update(tomorrow became yesterday) and the weather engine (lite or full) is still just vapourware atm,at the time i brought FEX(launch week)i brought it for what it would become & i knew it was incomplete but i was trying to help out a small dev with big ideas,but apart from a small amount of bug fixes to the interface,there has'nt been a lot added to it and i feel its far from what they promised,maybe i'll be a bit happier when this next update finally comes out but its the last time i jump in at launch to buy any more FEX products

Anyways Tim kindly gave me the info on the model its a Freeware Aerospace Fletcher FU24-954 and you can get it at Avsim

http://library.avsim.net/download.php?DLID=101818

Right im off for a beer and a holiday from my holiday!

Glad to hear you had a good trip omzig - my wife went there a few years back, and said much the same - pretty amazing place to visit, but not sure I'd want to live there...too busy and horrendous air quality in the summer.

I'll give that plane a try - cheers.

Oh and the Version 2.0 Horizon GenerationX disks are available - 69 for three volumes.

Is anyone else having problems with the propellor textures of the freeware Fletcher ?. It seems to be just a solid grey disc.

Yes, this is because it's not an FSX model, or a least not one that is SP2 compliant. I think you can convert the prop texture to a different format, but I've never tried - or replace the prop texture from one of a plane that works.

They're great shots NuBee

Haven't put in much time on FSX recently - the weathers been too nice [yes in England ]

Looking forward to getting the V2 GenerationX disks, with the water masks, which will allow landing on smaller bodies of water such as the lakes in the Lake District...so praying for rain when those arrive.

Preview image of the Aerosoft F-16. Looks pretty sweet though I don't know if I have many CPU cycles to spare being that I fly FTX most of the time. They say there will certainly be a performance hit with this.
