Thats MegaSceneryX Vegas. It came with a discount, so it was less than $14, like $13.50 or so. For that price its worth it, even if it has almost zero autogen in the city areas.

Anyone else getting lockups with the expansion pack? FSX worked perfectly for me before but once I added the expansion pack the sound will stutter when switching from 2D ****pit to any 3D view and sometimes FSX will lock up completely in the menu's after a flight... anyone else get this?

since i've installed fsx acceleration my sound pops sometimes......and also i fly real world weather all the time and the clouds are always flickering......never had this with sp1............sometimes the clouds "disappear" for a second and then appear back..........i get more mini stutters now too no matter what tweaks. But i like the 3 added aircraft in the expansion though.

i am using ultimate terrain x u.s.a, canada and also vancouver+ add on. i really like the van+ addon.....ill have to post some screenies. I am starting to look for some good scenery add ons for germany now.....i've been mainly flying u.s.a, canada.

If I have FRAPS running it locks up when using the menus in full screen mode. If I disabled FRAPS or switch to window(alt-enter) before using the menu I'm ok.

I also had a sound issue when using a RealTek chipset, and others have reported this too. I switched to a SB board which works fine.

Captain Sim C-130 X-perience. Awesome aircraft. Even the windshield wipers work.

I received the aerosoft Beaver for Xmas and it's a fantastic add-on, with lots of liveries and models.

A few shots.

I noticed Aerosoft has the D0-27 for $34usd.

It's supposed to have some really nice features like airframe stress that acculumates over time and through damage. Even engine oil wear.

http://www.aerosoft.com/cgi-local/us/iboshop.cgi?showd490!0,4754397340,D10513

I have my eyes on the SeaHawk/JayHawk package. I think Silly posted shots of it in that past, looks pretty good. It's supposed to have a realistic flight model unlike the acceleration Eh-101.

Looks Nice how is it on the frame rate? Nice touch on the windsheild wipers its just a shame Aces could'nt be bothered to give us any type of VC windsheild preticipation effects......

Just saw a SeaHawk/JayHawk review over at AVSIM you might want to checkout

http://www.avsim.com/pages/1207/SH60/SH60.htm


Santa brought me a download link for the DA Piper Cheyenne X (seems my dad was checking out my internet history when he was round xmas eve ...shame he didnt stop by thaibride.com instead )

Its quite nice but the frame hit it pretty high (-10fps when compaired to the default aircraft)& its an SP2 only plane

Heres a few quick shots

Those add on planes are nice!

The c-130 is an amazing plane. I am more of a C-17 Globemaster fan myself, though.

No globemaster, but Captain Sim is working on a B-52.

I never noticed a performance hit with the 130, but Im running a quad core @ 4ghz with frames locked at 20fps.

It runs smooth and I can ***** out the visual options.

I just did the African Relief mission with the 130, those short fields are a blast.

edit: there is a freeware c17 for 2k4 in avsim's file library. might be worth ckecking out.

That cheyenne looks beautiful, nice ****pit lighting and textures in general. It's nice having aircraft that air more complex than default.
