WOW that F-86 Sabre looks outstanding - if only more devs lavished such care and attention to their models.

I was quite tempted by the VFR France scenery, but the fact it's an update of the FS9 is a shame - it's a pity they didn't do what Horizon did with their UK scenery and recompile it at 1m resolution [assuming the original data supported such a resolution] and authored it to FSX specs to avoid the blurry issues...I hate blurries more than any other issue that troubles FSX...having said that your screenies are stunning!

Nice to see this thread has been sticked

SP2 problem

I installed SP1 then SP2
The game boots up, then crashes with a fatal error every time
I remove SP2 and all is fine

That's odd. I installed SP1 and then SP2 and I am doing fine. Maybe a theme issue? I am running this on vista and I know the game won't work unless I am on the windows classic theme.

Try to disable dx10 preview (if you can't get to the settings window, change it in your fsx.cfg file) and your addons (stuff like instant scenery).
I don't have a dx10 card, but FSX SP2 used to crash when I had some addons trying to run.

Yes some great shots omzig - I'm quite tempted by some more megasceneryX myself, I already have Hawaii which is stunning and the others look just as good, if a bit arid.

I also looking forward to a bit of Beaver action this Christmas from my mum no less .... well she's got me the AeroSoft package for my pressie - can't wait.

Anyway, this is what Alphasim VC's look like. Pretty basic, and considering they charge $30 to $50 per package, you would think they could do better. At least they make nice 2D panels.

The first shot is at .70 zoom, and the second at .50...

Ha i had to re-read that second section twice

Yep its a nice plane the aero beaver great for UTX canada and lake hopping,be sure to RTFM though as there are a few cool things you can tweak on it & while it works under DX10 i Pre-view(lame) i dont think its 100% dx10 compatible as the Mounted GPS doesnt show at night and neither does the backlighting on the gauges i hope aero get around to patching it but i dout they'll (like most 3rd partys it seems)bother

ive been reading the massive thread over at AVsim about sp2/dx10 and it seems 3rd party dev's are'nt to happy with aces for changing the gameplan
via a service pack Sp2 it seems breaks more things than it fixes!

As for MSX vegas yep the desert region is really nice lots of detail in the 1mpp texture but i think the autogen placement under default FSX is better,i guess if the texture renderer in sp1/2 wasnt broken you could get the same detail desert wise using tileproxy or fs earthtiles

I got the dallas/fortworth MSX pack coming soon(later today i hope)so i'll grab some shots of that although it does look a little flat from the website screenies!

Cheers

Oh no I hate R'ingTFM - but I'll make an exception if there are things to fiddle with...I love the default Beaver, but the aero Beaver has lots of versions and liveries to muck around with - I can see it being most used aircraft.

I've been following the thread at Avsim too - I really hope ACES listens to these people ... I've got few complaints with FSX, but I know a lot of people have serious issues, and it's these developers that are the lifeblood of FS, giving it longevity. I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't bother if the standard FS package was 'as good as it gets' - I'm sure I wouldn't, so they need to keep these parties informed and happy.

Look forward to your shots of dallas/fortworth omzig.
