Yes it was quite disappointing really after there fantastic hawaii and vegas addons,i was expecting more of the same but on a grander scale after all it comes on x2 dvds!....

Managed to get my E6400 upto 3.1Ghz this afternoon and my 8800GTS 640 to 650core 900Mem FSX & myself is liking the boost

Some night shots featuring Shockwave lights redux (hawaii & Vegas)



One other thing ive been playing with that has been quite interesting is setting

TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_TREES_PER_CELL=4000
TERRAIN_MAX_AUTOGEN_BUILDINGS_PER_CELL=200

Robbing from the autogen buildings total and adding it to the tree cell (i also started using Treesx2)

I found that bumping the autogen trees up in this way pushes them out way into the distance and reduces the autogen pop and adds to the realisim of the landscape heres a few shots to show what i mean

I ordered Vegas but the download is super slow, only 120k.

Here's pics my current favorite add on, at least until the RealAir FSX spitfire comes out. The FSX version spifire comes with both Griffon and Merlin engine variants, so that should be awesome.

The amount of power these engines make is insane, considering the low rpm. For the Griffon to make 2050 hp at 2750 rpm it needs to crank out around 4,000 ft-lb of torque.

The P-40's Allison engine only manages about 2000 ft-lb, and the P-51 Racer must be making around 6,000.

Wow what a difference a new joystick makes! Best buy has the Saitek Aviator on sale for $25(normally $40), so I picked one up to replace my 9 year old MS Sidewinder.

I can't believe I was flying with such a pathetic worn out stick. I probably got a 100% increase in fidelity with the new one. Its amazing what I can do in the F/A-18 now. Not only is the precision amazing, but its got dual throttles, so I assigned one of them to prop pitch.

UTX USA would be the main one that adds street and intersection lighting
the shockwave lights just changes the glow texture
but the default UTX version can look just as good with bloom on

heres the web site

Edit: Well outside of vegas its a little more usable and not such a rape,here a few shots from a flight around Atlanta during dusk

I thought about buying one but I wasn't sure about vista x64 drivers. I used to have a ffb 1 and it was very accurate.

It's really expensive though.
For that price range you should get the Saitek x52 or the pro one.
I should get mine to upgrade my old FFB1 (Vista doesn't support the old game port) in the next couple of days.

sillyeagle, over what scenery are you flying there with the FA-18? Looks great!
