Here's a comparison of the mesh products. The freeware 76m mesh makes quite a difference, and does not have the misalignment issue the default does. To bad the 20m mesh only covers a small area.

@ Sillyeagle

Those are some amazing shots. I take it they are FTX. Wish they'd do Europe.

Changing the subject slightly, I'm gathering together my FSX purchase list and I've been looking into head tracking (there are some quite amazing vids on you tube). I'm currently looking at Free-Track and buying a web cam and modding it. TrackIR strikes me as being a tad expensive. Has anyone had any experience with head-tracking, if so, is it worth it

I've owned 3 generations of TIR and I won't fly or race without head tracking. That and I love to crank up my Buttkicker Gamer.

If you check back through this thread you'll see that ive recommended Freetrack a number of time for those ppl who want to try head tracking without the expense of a TrackIR system

Now a lot of ppl say Freetrack is cheap crap robs your FPS blah blah blah
& i can only guess those ppl have'nt bothered to RTFM and take the time to set it up properly

I'll admit FreeTrack is'nt as plug and play As TrackIR(thats what you pay for) but can do just as good a job IF you set it up right (id used them side by side i know)

My Freetrack system is set up as a 3 point(clip left ear headset)using refective IR,with a 6 IR light webcam(modded IR Filter/blocked IR sensor so IR lighting is always on)that runs at 30FPS using I420 stream at 352x288

its super smooth in FSX,GT Legends,rFactor,ship sim,EEch & RBR (those are the games ive tryed it in) i wouldnt even want to try and filght without head tracking i just wish a few more gameswould take advantage of it !

Speaking of which, here are some FEX 4096x4096 clouds and FTX at dusk...get well soon omzig

I'm just posting these before I head off on holiday - so I obviously won't be able to reply to any question or response regarding the shots, should there happen to be any.

Stunning shots as always from both slaWter & SJA06 & thanks for the GWS wishes

I hope you have a nice holiday,heading anywhere nice? if so have you given it a flight over with FSX and tile proxy (hey you dont wanna send me your beta login details while your away do ya )


Well i got an hour or so logged on FTX this afternoon just after my meds kicked in (didnt grab any SS yet)

Im really impressed with the textures and the resizing & colouring of the autogen (trees are the best yet) those tweaks give a much better over all sense of scale than any other addon ive yet used and the street lighting is much better than in UTX....

Now the only really bad point is the mesh....The default FSX mesh is a joke(as it is for anywhere outside the USA) and even thought its better than the default the freeware 76m Orbx recommends is just really weak everything is just so round down there ! maybe im just spoilt after flying with the 10m meshes (free & payware)& sure theres the red barren mesh for victoria but its expensive for what you get,

i think orbx really need to get a better mesh sorted out for there next AU releases at the moment its the weakest link in the chain for me

Cheers

Realair released their Spitfire today!!

Oh man, it includes a Reno racer!

Edit: I fkn hate the Euro. 29 Euros. Another $46.00 FSX addon. Arrghhh. They are killing my pockets with all these addons that cost more than the entire sim.

Oh man I can wait to get home and and fly this bad boy. Its spendy but I'll gladly pay that for the best add on in FSX histoty.

I wasn't expecting it so soon, so they must have had a smooth beta.

I'm so excited.
