  1. I battled with the song used in this video as one of the words in it used a few times has an adult rating. However, I really like the song and how it scores the video. In the end, I thought that since I'm making the video and its for me and all I get out of it is the ability to share my creation, I'm keeping it. So that said, PG-13 rating with the sound on, G rating with the sound off
  2. With the release of the Flight1 GTN series and Orbx providing beta airports, I am almost ready to switch to v4. I've leased it since it was released but have done very little with it. A few test installs and quick flights to see the installs work but really no flying. Mainly because I am waiting on Flyinside for v4. Once that is out, I am in...v4 that is. However, I did my first real flight in v4 last night from KJAC to KIDA in the Texan with the GTN 650, Ultimate Traffic Live, Active Sky and FSE. It was a great flight and while it is very much like v3, I know in the back of my mind I am not worried about a CTD and really enjoyed the smooth flight. I'm in no huge rush to jump into v4 but I certainly hope once summer is over and I get back into flying almost daily that it will be in v4 all the way.
  3. Dont remember seeing most of these helo pads in the PNW
  4. Jarrad, thank you for the informative post but whats up with those trees near the water in the last pic? They look like they are covered in snow like they are winter trees? Oh yeah and the Dynamic Lighting looks amazing. Nathan
  5. Dear Orbx Developers, Take a consideration look at KSBP San Luis Country Regional airport. This airport offers a few nice items that seems to fit Orbxs' portfolio when it comes to scenery. Additionally, this airport also seems to be a hotspot of activity on Pilot Edge. Now one cant say for certain if its more XP or P3D/FSX, but there is usually always traffic at the field. Looking at it from a features point of view, it has a nice field layout with even those runway over run safety ends. Outside the fence line seems to be also very friendly to modeling and lastly its a nice tidy package area where the town ends in a way that the valley area could be done with a nice ending point going from photo real to SCA. Food for thought.

    Thats why I am upgrading my hot air balloon to IFR this week.

  8. I'm planning an A2A North American tour starting in Homer Alaska. I will pick various A2A planes for the various legs and fields I will be departing and landing at on each leg and visit my collection of addons as I tour North American. Down the West Coast, then over into Texas. There are a few good airports by other developers I will also be using before heading up into the NorthEast for KBID and KBHB. My trip will end just past Meigs as I finish in the Twin Cities.
  9. From the AFS2 forums with info including LOWI mention: Progress Update!Just to give everyone an update regarding the next update. After what should be one of the final rounds of testing it looks like an update is heading your way next week.In this update, you will see a core version update to Aerofly FS2 that will give you fixes to the following bugs;* Shimmering buildings/houses in densely populated areas, especially in the LOWI (ORBX) scenery* flickering night knighting; further improvements have been made to the night lighting. This update not only fixes the flickering lights but makes the entire scene more realistic flying at night.* The core update also upgrades the advanced autopilot systems to improve functionality across all aircraft that use advanced autopilot. A lot of work was done to improve this system (A320, B737, B747, C90Gtx, Lj45 and now the Q400. The Cessna 172 and Baron B58 autopilot is unchanged). * The function to add a custom user folder has been added:You can now define a custom user folder by adding your location to the field: <[string8][extra_user_folder][]> located within the main.mcf file. The location can be defined by placing it within the brackets of the command and saved.For defining a custom scenery location the location must contain the sub-folder “scenery”. This will give you the ability to place your custom scenery in a location other than the documents folder located on the root drive. This will allow for Aerofly FS2 to scan for any image files in that location.You can basically define any new hard drive location between the [] brackets. You can also add any subfolder that is inside of your user\documents\Aerofly folder into this new location and Aerofly FS2 will scan that location for scenery, aircraft repaints, etc.This will allow for users with smaller root drives (where your documents folder resides) to place their scenery, airports, repaint etc. to a different hard drive.* Last but not least the Dash 8 Q400 will be added to the Aerofly FS2 aircraft library. This new aircraft is a free upgrade and will be added as a DLC separate from the core update. The Q400 has been anticipated for quite some time now and the wait is over! This aircraft has much greater functionality over any previous aircraft and is truly a AAA quality aircraft that users will quickly deem as the best yet. Look for a detailed report directly from Jan (lead aircraft setter upper) on all of the new systems and functionality shortly after its debut.As you can see, this is a much anticipated update that has a lot of new features and functionality, . A lot of work went into getting this out to you, and we are pleased to say that it's on short final.As always thank you for our support and patience.
  10. Thanks for all the kind words guys...glad you enjoyed it.
  11. This Short Film is best enjoyed watching it on a big screen like a computer and not a phone or tablet. It showcases the beauty of Nantucket on the 4th of July. In a world of so much drama around the globe and all the issues we here in the USA are faced with, this is a nice escape to the values of what America is about and the celebration of countries birth. So take a few minutes and enjoy what just a part of this island looks like at 400 feet up as we take a journey across the water fight on Main Street to the fireworks off of Jetties Beach.

  12. A whole new type of surrounding terrain that we only kinda touched on at L70. Love the feel this airstrip and area offers for GA enjoyment.
  13. You're wrong.
  14. I'd guess the same could be said about flying a plane. That no sim will ever be better than flying a plane yet we are all simmers who dont care about flying a plane as our simulation of flying a plane is what we seek.
  15. I gave up this with its 65" screen: for this: All because of VR. I have no issue with controls as you can see here:
