More RoF
Dr.I v Felixstowe

Just a flesh wound, I can cope with the asymetry.


Something a little less 'defensive', perhaps.

Just for fun.

Scorched earth policy.

So a low level victory flight through a village near Amiens. I was wondering about the hit-boxes for the buildings - found them!

Safe at last.

Still more RoF
1. Dr.I en route to defend a bridge at St. Mihels.
2. Circling overhead the bridge.
3. Contact.
4. No ammunition, no upper-right wing (again) so I check on the bridge.
5. Bristol F.2b v ship's superstructure.
6. Bristol F.2b v slight mound in a field.

Thanks. Really looking forward to getting the Channel Map, and I'm glad 777 are doing the next IL-2.

Look at my new girl. Brandish. Lean. Elegant. I knew when I first saw her two weeks ago, that I sooner or later would need to make her mine.

Another quality addon by RealAir, a Lancair Legacy. Probbaly the niciest and best addon for suchg a small GA aircraft I ever had, with superb visual quality, a joyful flightmodel, and quite some innovative features that are simulated for the first time ever in FSX.

Flown over Iceland short before noon. At this time of year, it is not really bright up there. I know I know, Iceland in winter - deicing and all that. Let's not spoil the fun!

Look at these lines from the side - incredible!

A real Skybird ! :yeah:

Skybird 01-03-13 08:59 PM

the plane of choice for sightseeing, due to the spectacular vision that is allowed by the bubble canopy.

The plane can pull up to 4.4 G. Topspeed 240 knots, maximum altitude 18,000 feet. Fully IFR certified. Aerobatics and dogfighting possible.

This plane now replaces my SIAI SF.260 Marchetti, which has served me since many years in this size segment.

The Queen is dead. Long live the Queen!

The flight model deserves special recognition, they did some tricks in there that make this one feel really good. Spinning, splipping and all that - old hats for RealAir, I am talking standard flying. Hard to nail it in words, but youj realise it when flying it - this one feels different, more vibrant, dynamic, reactive to the air around, more playful towards the wind. True joy to just draw circles and loopings into the sky with this one. Wonderful! I can see why this addon has scored maximum points and appreciation with reviewers. Nothing negative I can report. Nothing.

That looks lovely. Is the water GEX or something else?

REX 2.0.

On my old installation, having GEX and UTX led to instabilities when flying the 737NGX. I am not certain that it was either of these, but after setting up my system all new I left these out, and have a totally stable FSX since then. The evil doer probably was Ultimate Terrain X.

I also did not expect to go back to VFR flying again, and thus textures only making a difference at low altitude seemed to stress ressources for nothing.

Scenery on the pics, although almost invisible, is IcelandX.

I did a lot of flying over Iceland X the past days. I would not say it is a sensational scenery, but it is one that has its own unspectacular beauty if using it in winter, with all and everything snow- and ice-covered and the ruggedness of the FSX terrain graphics being eased in the eyes that way. Combined the twilight and weather it is some very immersive flying, which makes oyu emotionally react to the desolateness and loneliness of the landscape around, the believable melting of ground and sky at the horizon, and the gentle colours. So, to my surprise I get much more from this scenery than I expected!

Recommendation: make sure to fly in altitudes from 3000-7000 feet, that way you get most from it and also meet plenty of cloud layers to dive into. Warning: some of the fjords and the airfields there are tricky if you get surprised by bad visibility conditions, which with realistic wetaher and season settings I met quite often. Also, almost all NavAids are NDBs exclusively.

More flying at Iceland. Approaching storm. Noontime. At gloomy times like that you really feel lonely up there, out there, where ever!

Skybird 01-05-13 08:19 PM

Keflavik, with the first lightnings in my neck.

Tomorrow or so it is back to the continent, into Heathrow. the lack of light is killing my mood! Have not dared to approach Heathrow scenery since my complete reionstallation. If I can land the PMDG737NGX there without FSX collapsing, then I know that I have choosen settings and setups wisely and that I have indeed a robust installation again.

Will not have been my last trips at Iceland, that is for sure. With surprisingly little, FSX really does some magic for this scenery, at least in snow-covered winter. Very atmospheric. By looks, it also reminds of the giant Arctica scenery by Aerosoft (which I do not have and do not plan to get).

I liked some of the FSX pics too but they make me sad because after switching from Win7 32bit to Win7 64 Bit, I had to uninstall FSX and since then, I can not re-install it. I keep getting told that it's already on my PC and so won't complete the install and I can't get it to fix what it thinks I have because it's not installed :/\\!!

Cleaning the registry manually or via tool...?

Rise of Flight, the basic game is free and you pay for extra aircraft.
