  1. Hi Folks, LOL - while we just keep throwing out requests - I guess this is what the thread is for... Appreciate all you guys do and all you guys have done... Obviously I now need a movie camera to step up my game... KMGJ - Orange County - New York On the 45 Base Final Regards, Scott
  2. Hi Folks, Yeah - beautiful set with a unique plane... I never much noticed the aircraft before Buffalo Joe made it pretty famous on that TV show of his... That's one massive tail dragger... One interesting tidbit from the show - one reason there are so few left was their poor and precarious ground handling - claimed many a C46... Regards, Scott Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hi Jack, Nice set with an eclectic mix of aircraft... Park the plane - head for the shade for some fried conch and beer... Regards, Scott
  4. Almost heaven, West Virginia, Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River. Life is old there, older than the trees, younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze. Country roads, take me home to the place I belong. West Virginia, mountain mamma, take me home, country roads. Nice... Regards, Scott
  5. Hi Dolf, Jeesh - that first shot raises the bar another notch even by your already high standards... I can almost smell the AvGas... Regards, Scott Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Hi Folks, Hands down my favorite FS aircraft of all time - Digital Aviation was truly light years ahead of its time with this project... I've managed to shoehorn the GTN650 in place of the hated Trimble... Couple issues need to be addressed for P3D - the recce lights look bad from a distance and the night lighting on the panel is far too bright to be useable... I truly wish this plane would get a refresh from AS/DA... The FDE is OUTSTANDING... Regards, Scott
  7. Hi Folks, And still a great source for one liners even today... Regards, Scott
  8. Hi Folks, Memphis - Where the hell is Memphis? - - - LOL - nod to Joe Jackson... Fine shots... Regards, Scott
  9. Hi PNW, Yep - wholeheartedly concur - if you don't have it ORBX just improved the Bahamas a bit with OLC NA 1.20 - I run FTX Global - UT TAC - and OLC NA and the area is looking pretty good for generics... Art Poole's freeware has like 30 airports in the Bahamas improved - but they seem to need some work to play well with the aforementioned packages... Hah - we could flash back to the 80's and be drug smugglers flying old Navajo's on one way trips flying 50 feet of the deck at night trying to penetrate US airspace... Yeah - the Bahamas are high on my list... They really have Flamingos in the Bahamas - I've seen the swimming pigs but never a Flamingo A very recent post by me on the same subject: Regards, Scott
  10. Hi SD, Thanks - it's been a while - last time I was out there they were still working on that "new" highway going from Santee to Kearney Mesa ? Regards, Scott
  11. Hi Mohamad, My system is a tad older - I'm running the "14" series Noctua and a Sandy 2700K - base clock of 3.5 Ghz @ a pretty substantial OC of 4.7 Ghz and my temps stay below 80C... Honestly - I built it years ago and monitored the temps for a while but I haven't looked at them in years... Set it and forget it... Regards, Scott
  12. Hi Folks, P3D 3.4, FTX Global, FTX OLC NA, and UT TAC This weekend I spent some time visiting the Bahamas - and what a difference a day makes... What a great improvement to the area - Bravo Zulu guys - even with the basic setup above the Bahamas are truly a worthwhile destination now... I tried adding Art Poole's fine freeware collection of airports but it appears that each airport requires significant work as he included ground textures but I don't want anything covering those beautiful ORBX textures... I spent the afternoon modifying just one of his 20 or 30 little jewels to make it play nice with the aforementioned packages... I truly hope you have plans to further develop this fine area... For those who may be unfamiliar a video that showcases GA flying in the Bahamas - this is what all the hoopla is about... Regards, Scott
  13. Hi Folks, Another fan of Noctua - if you have the space I've seen them get better numbers than liquid systems... I upgraded all my case fans to the beige and brown Noctua fans as well - halved the noise level from my stock case fans... It's very quiet now... Regards, Scott
  14. Hi Folks, Looking at that coverage map once again - that's a massive area that encompasses a bunch of SOCAL airports... I haven't purchased the ORBX Region for that area due to the reports of being very performance intensive on hardware - probably more than my old 2700K can handle... I did pretty well with FTX Global, UTX, LatinVFR KSAN, and the Freeware Airports before they were all removed when the regional pack was released... If you can get the performance numbers reasonable for this area I'd be very interested in purchasing it... Question: Would it be possible to INCLUDE the "ORBX Freeware Airports" in your coverage area - as that would be a big selling point for me as well ? Side Note: Is there an area really called "Bostonia" ? I lived in Point Loma, off of Mission Bay, and Santee for years back in the 80's/90's and that's one I've never heard before... Keep up the good work - it's looking fantastic... Regards, Scott
  15. Hi Folks, Wow - that looks incredible and quite the ambitious project... Just curious - are there any subs at the sub base ? Did NAS North Is,and get any improvements ? Thanks... Regards, Scott Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
