I need a high wing cruiser for that sweet ORBX sightseeing weekends. Just what I'm looking for.

I guess I'm a minority in that I like, and actualy use, only X-Graphics. I just feel it's a great deal all around since it includes water/sun/moon/runway/taxiway/clouds/road/rail/etc textures in one package.

The cloud textures in some of the other packages are more detailed though, I will acknowledge that. I wish ACES would contract some of their work out to the aftermarket guys the next time around. I don't care if it raised the price of FS11 or not.

Hey guys, been very busy with my ATPL so I haven't been active. But I managed to take some time to edit my shots of the last couple of weeks, results are below.































Comments Welcome.

Ooh, nice work. I like the Spitfire one the best. I might have to download that freeware chopper again. I used it before and it's quite nice. Really shows off the bump maps in your image.

Well I bought the London VFR and all I can say is I need a new PC to run it, and thats with no autogen, no traffic, etc. Its slower than even YMML, and the coverage is small, so you've got a nice patch of 3D, then outside of that its just flat, as you get 60cm photo scenery for the rest of london, though void of any objects. I was thinking the autogen alignmen would be better but a good portion of the autgen is misplaced by what looks like 20ft, so it seems they are using some tech to place buildings as its not like the hand placed stuff Orbx does. I'll probably shelf this until I get my new system.

In other news Jaykae at the Orbx forum is running FSX on a Dual Quad system, with 8 cores and 16GB, and apparently getting 88fps over YMML with all slider including autogen maxed out...

Nice shots XYZ-man2. Love the look of those shockwave lights.BTW can I have some opinions on ASX as I don't think I can wait any longer for a weather engine. Does it go with FEX clouds or do I really need to have ASGraphics as well. Sillyeagle, Jaykae's machine is an absolute monster. Hopefully one day we could all be running FSX at that level.

XYZ-man2 those are some stunning shots

Silly - Hmmm, that sounds disappointing - I am a bit short on cash at the moment, so I didn't buy it, and I'm not sure it would be worth it with my current PC...though people are reporting good performance so far - though that depends on what you call good I suppose.

What are you getting?

I have been doing some texture modding in Photoshop -sky and sun- and am quite pleased with the results.












Due to an empty piggy bank I'll have to make do with Cardiff, until I can afford VFR London.

Nice shots there. Here's some London shots with one showing the autogen alignment. It says alignment to within 3m but that seems a bit more.

That's just concept art, and they missed the concept by a mile.
